Episode 54: Neon Escalators and Things: Part 1

, with special guest:

0054 John Carpenter 1This week, dear listeners, we bring you the first half of an epic podcasting session about horror director John Carpenter! And joining us for our discussion is John Carpenter expert and returning Pleasure Dome guest, Noel Thingvall!

If you get thirsty while listening to our discussion of Carpenter’s early career, we recommend Fox Barrel Pear Cider. Or, if you are beer inclined, Great Lakes Brewing Company Burning River. Or if you are one of those teetotalers, Juicy Juice Fruit Punch. (It has energy and stuff!)

And if you are dying to see Noel’s animated .gifs of Henry Morgan dancing, here you go.

Show notes behind the cut!
