Nick welcomes film critics Erik Childress and Steve Prokopy to review the latest movies: “The Bikeriders” featuring Austin Butler, Russell Crowe in “The Exorcism,” June Squibb as the charming “Thelma,” and “Kinds of Kindness” from the director and stars of “Poor Things.” They also discuss the upcoming renovations for The Music Box Theatre, including new seats and carpets, and a local movie that is generating a lot of buzz.

Later, Esmeralda Leon joins Nick to begin their culinary tour of the United Kingdom, starting with lamb-flavored crisps and blackcurrant-flavored candies. Nick also challenges Esma with a tough quiz about the UK, featuring questions about a brave dog, a poison garden, and the term “Butt” used to describe good friends in Wales. [EP255]
