Episode 238: THE FALL Discussion

Listen Now:


On this week's episode, Shannon and Marina expand the circle of discussion and touch base with a show that isn't based on a book but does feature a BTD favourite. The show in question? BBC Two's "The Fall" starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan.

We'll be taking a two week, spring break, hiatus and returning in April with our next news show! Be sure to like us on Facebook to stay up to date with all of our posting between now and then!
