The hosts of the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, know greatness when they see it. Celebrated Academy Award-winning filmmaker Kenneth Branagh has been a part of such greatness. Throughout his illustrious career, Branagh has conquered two masterful authors: William Shakespeare and Agatha Christie. Branagh has earned the right to make as many adaptations of either British legend as he wants. We’ve got his newest here.

For their 132nd episode, two non-mustached critics, two mysterious dads, and two sleuth teachers, Will Johnson and Don Shanahan, welcome back frequent guest Cati Glidewell of The Blonde in Front back for the final week of three new release episodes of the podcast. Circling back to September, Cati and Don descend into Italians waters to follow Kenneth Branagh’s Hercule Poirot character for “A Haunting in Venice.” Is it the best of Branagh’s three Poirot movies so far? Get a clue of your own and tune in. Come for the shared challenge and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate. Enjoy our podcast!
