Boy are the pickings slim in week 9 of In the Mood for Podcast, a British-based film podcast hosted by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Pete Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog.

We talk some Olympics, with a review of Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony, and ponder whether China can be beaten at anything. Then there’s the big questions of the week: how long would you stay in a vat of shit to survive? And is Miley Cyrus’s curious use for raw chicken a blessing or a curse?
