Mike and Jenny take a trip to 1885 to talk about Mike Leigh's Gilbert and Sullivan biopic Topsy-Turvy. They discuss Leigh's insane but brilliant creative process, the joy of period specific dialogue, the racism of The Mikado, and how well the film depicts how a piece of entertainment comes together.
