Episode 68: Cillian Murphy

Did you know that Cillian Murphy used to be in a band that were once offered a 5 album record deal? Well you will hear him talk about that, but also how music has been a constant throughout his career, most notably in the creative way contemporary music has been used in the hugely successful TV series, Peaky Blinders. A real music fan who also adds music festival curator to his CV, I could have talked to Cillian for hours.

Two wonderfully talented people who are very easy to talk to. Val and Jon very kindly gave up their time twice to allow us to record the podcast. Their new film, Battle of The Sexes, is glorious with important messages, fun with fantastic performances. We also talked about their break out movie, the phenomenally memorable Little Miss Sunshine and we had a surprise visit from Elizabeth Shue who plays Priscilla Riggs in the film. I hope you enjoy.
