I was recently a guest on Uncle the Podcast – my favourite up and coming comedy podcast – to discuss the 1980s arm wrestling movie Over the Top, starring Sylvester Stallone.  The film is about a father who is estranged from his young son but due to the mother’s illness they are thrown back together.  Stallone is a truck driver and competitive arm wrestler so we discussed various aspects of Over the Top including the lack of everyday heroes in modern films, the arm wrestling sequence and Stallone’s gimmick of flipping his baseball hat backwards when he wrestles.  We also talked about ClandesTime and what I do here on Spy Culture.  And remember: this is a double elimination competition.
