Episode 72: My Best Friend Turned Into a Cactus

, with special guest:

0072 QuatermassThis week, dear listeners, we are joined again by author Pat Harrigan for an episode all about Quatermass! We get into the nitty gritty of Nigel Kneale’s groundbreaking series of stories: the BBC miniseries, the Hammer Films remakes, the radio show… and even stuff like The Stone Tape and The Year of the Sex Olympics.

If you would like to drink along (and oh, we did drink), we recommend Black Ink wine, because it has a cephalopod on it. It certainly was appropriate to our subject matter.

Show notes behind the cut!
