Round up your wild brumbies and head for the hills this week when the Bit Players talk George Miller’s (no, not that George Miller) 1982 Aussie western The Man from Snowy River. The guys discuss the role of nature as a major influencer in the film and those like it, the legacy of Australican cinema, and hope and pray that the film’s star Kirk Douglas lived to see the release of this episode. They also pick their own gold prospecting nicknames and what you might find on their tombstone in 19th Century Australia.
