Podcast: The Brilliantly Soapy Drama and Amazing Headwear of Empire

Screen Shot 2015-06-03 at 11.39.47 am

The Spinoff’s Alex Casey and Duncan Greive are joined by freelance writer and critic Dominic Corry to discuss the first three episodes of ‘Empire’, a new show centering around an ‘urban’ music label’s dynastic tensions. It’s become an enormous hit in the US, thanks to a mixture of excellent casting, boldly soapy style and a somewhat revolutionary treatment of black culture in dramatic television. We love the show, and spend a half hour explaining why.
