We have a treat for you this week, dear listeners, as we invite special guest star Alee Ellingsberg of Reel Education: Noir to join us for an episode about ASYLUM FILMS! And by Asylum Films, we mean the production house that has given us things like Atlantic Rim, Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, and Sharknado.
If you would like to drink along, we recommend Santiago Station Cabernet Sauvignon (if you’re a wine person) or Schell’s Oktoberfest (if you’re a beer person). Either way, you’ll be better prepared for the likes of Megashark vs. Giant Octopus.
Note: the special gift at the end of this episode is a recording made by Tim Wick and Geoffrey Brown for Big Fun Radio Funtime in April 2014. We’re including it here with permission. (Incidentally, these are the same guys who wrote our theme music.) We’re sorry that the audio isn’t great, but that’s the way it is. If you like it, you can get it directly from Bandcamp for free.
