Diminishing Returns is a weekly podcast where three film-fans pick a movie or franchise to discuss, then pitch their own ideas for what the sequel should be.

The show's hosts all work in the film industry in one form or another, so whilst the film-discussion is light and funny, it also offers some legitimate insight and analysis along the way.

 

Starring...

Calvin Dyson

Award-winning film-maker who now works in TV, Calvin thinks of himself as Roger Moore, but he's actually more of a Northern C-3PO. Occasional voice of Johnny-Megaplex on the show due to his tolerance and penchant for stupid, plotless action (so long as it has a strong female character or cool, fighting robots).

Favourite Genre:
Slasher Movies
