Depending on who you ask, Joker is a masterpiece of cinema or a problematic mess which glamourises the worst sort of person.

This week on NerdsPLUS, host Finn Hogan is joined by queen nerd and Newshub Entertainment Editor Kate Rodger, Digital Entertainment Editor and The Snack podcast host Mon Barton and podcast regular XenoJay. 

The nerds unpack the controversy, discuss Joaquin Phoenix's Oscar chances and ask whether this is even a Batman film.

All the video games, movies, comics and petty arguments about fictional characters that you'll ever need. NerdsPLUS is a weekly podcast coming to you from the Newshub newsroom, where three friends bring you all the content you wish was on the 6pm bulletin.
