What an exciting day. The Canon: An Essential Movies Watchlist is back with a very special Spielberg double billing. We’re celebrating summer blockbusters this June here at ScreenAge Wasteland.

What better way to celebrate, than with two bangers from the king of the blockbuster?

Happy listening, screenagers!

Also, this episode features on the most stunning revelations in the history of The Canon.
