Episode 119c: The Return of the Eclectic Mayhem: Part 3

Fantastic Fest 2016Good morning, dear listeners! Here’s your daily dose of Fantastic Fest 2016!

In this episode, we’re trying out the new portable microphone, so we recorded between movies from within the festival itself. You will hear a lot of ambient sounds, rambling, and interruptions, just like if you were actually there with us! You will also hear a slight crackle at a few spots, which seems to be the microphone picking up interference from the iPhone it was using; we’ll know to watch out for that in the future.

Special thanks to everyone who contributed their sonorous voices to this episode!

Episode 118: Great Germans of Comedy

NinotchkaWe are BACK! We are both in Austin, TX preparing for Fantastic Fest, so we decided to shake off the rust a bit and do a little pre-festival podcast about Ninotchka, which we both saw for the first time at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz.

We apologize for the echo-laden sound of this episode. We recorded in a carpeted room that should have been less echo-y than that. (Anyway, it’s just like old times, right?)

After this episode, we will launch promptly into our Fantastic Fest schedule, delivering daily episodes about the newest genre films from around the world! This deluge of new material will last through September 30th, so be prepared!

After that, we will settle into a regular schedule of posting every other week. We will change our format a little to make our episodes more streamlined, as well as keeping our content fresher than before. As a bonus, we will also be occasionally releasing several currently-unaired episodes we recorded earlier this year.

But back to this episode! Show notes behind the cut!
