In this week's episode, Q. Lei interviewed a good friend of hers, Alex Ross, an independent filmmaker from the UK, who is currently working and living in Berlin. Alex talked about the challenges of independent filmmaking, the economy of storytelling, and his passion in telling real human stories. Alex also told Lei about his experience of living in East Berlin shortly after the Wall came down. Also, if you want some classic movie recommendations, listen to this week's BLYNKT podcast!

Anna shares some funny anecdotes. Are Hollywood productions as stressful as they are known for? Is there such a thing as "men's communication style" in Germany? Find out in the latest episode of the BLYNKT podcast.

Carly Dee and Q. Lei have a lazy afternoon in discussing the theme of family in popular culture. They briefly discuss the film Knocked Up and the TV shows Modern Family, The Simpsons, The Middle and Malcolm in The Middle. However, most of the episode is dedicated to discussing the wonderful 2007 film 'Juno' starring Ellen Page and Michael Cera.
