Escape into the sewers this week with the bleak WWII film Kanal! The guys discuss the film’s influence on modern cinema (including The Descent), the backlash to the film from the Polish government, Daisy’s heroic character that may have inspired Ellen Ripley, the look and sound design of the sewer and much more.

Next week: Civil war!
