After the mammoth 'event' that was Podcast 003, we thought we'd keep things a little more simple this time around, for our own sanity as much as yours. But that hasn't stopped us from scouring the globe for some great interviews and music though. Oh no.

Not only did we get chance to speak with the funky punky New Young Pony Club, we also found time to chat with Tommy Pallotta, the Producer of Richard Linklater's new movie, A Scanner Darkly. And as well as our own discussion about Cars, and the animation institution that is Pixar, you'll hear the usual range of great tunes, from Alice Russell and DJ Spinna, to Assembly Now, The Gossip, and more...

'Ask Rina' is taking a break this issue, but she'll be back, so please keep sending your questions to askrina@pixelsurgeon.com, and with any luck Reen will be able to enlighten you in a future podcast.

As ever, please let us know what you think by leaving a comment.

Interesting take on why Cars hasn't got the appeal of previous Pixar filums. Good podcast.
