Podcast on Fire 135: Milkyway Treasures – Too Many Ways To Be No.1

Let’s watch the commercial elements of triads turned on its head literally with the review of Wai Ka-fai’s Too Many Ways To Be No. 1. We also scored the authority and historian on all things late 90s triad elements, i.e. our very own Stewart Sutherland who checks in to talk life, movies, plans for The Ekin Hour, The Raid, Flowers Of War and powerslides. Subsequently Kenny B sits down separately (as Stoo’s participation was last minute) by himself (Tom’s cancellation was also last minute) to talk Hong Kong’s take on the gimmick Sliding Doors and Run Lola Run also employed. The best and most odd Milkyway Treasure yet?
