1/1: The biggest screens in the world

Blow Your Socks Off Cinema

In this episode - is bigger always better? Olly meets Andrew Cripps and Brian Bonnick from IMAX, creators of the world's largest movie screens, to find out.

They also tell him how to film a panda, and explain the difference between 'black-black' and 'black-black-black'.



In The Zeitgeist, Ollie Peart chews over the 'hoverboard' ban, autonomous Tesla cars on YouTube, and what crocodiles have in common with the mafia. If you've got a trend you'd like Ollie to talk about in a future episode, tweet him @ollieep.

And in the slot we are currently calling The Fox Hole (alternative ideas on a postcard to @themodernmann...), our resident love guru Alix Fox teaches Olly about sex with mermaids. If you have a question of sex for Alix, send us an email here (you can remain anonymous if you want).

If you enjoy the show, please tell your friends - either by using the hashtag #ModernMann on Twitter, or by leaving us a nice review on iTunes. And remember to subscribe, so you can get our next episode delivered to your smartphone automatically next Tuesday. The show is completely free to listen to, but not free to produce - so if you'd like to buy us a beer, we'd be ever so grateful.

Our song of the week, appropriately enough, is 'Trials of a Modern Man' by Vangoffey, out November 9th on Distiller Records, and from the album 'Take Your Jacket Off And Get Into It':

Next week: Olly heads to San Francisco to taste America's Best Burgers.

See you next Tuesday!
