Space Movies with Cain and Tal: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

In this fun episode I'm joined by Cain and Tal from the phenomenal Aussie podcast ‘Movies with Cain and Tal’. We consume junk food while talking about a film that can only be called junk cinema – the 1964 cult classic Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.


If you watched the ABC program ‘Employable Me’ last year you might remember Cain, who identifies as being on the autism spectrum and channels his talents into watching and reviewing hundreds of movies a year. Natalia Bye, also known as Tal, is an aboriginal Australian woman and mother of two who also runs that fantastic podcast ‘Australian History: Journals of the Early Explorers’.
