Episode 72: My Best Friend Turned Into a Cactus

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.

Episode 58: Superposition Yeti

0058 Hammer FilmsDear listeners, we have a great episode for you this week, because we nerd out about Hammer Films with our erudite friend and author, Pat Harrigan! We traipse through the history of the famed British studio, mentioning favorite films and actors along the way.

And, as you can probably tell by our diction in this episode, we have had plenty of Cocobon Red Blend wine. You should, too!

Episode 55: Neon Escalators and Things: Part 2

0055 John Carpenter 2This week’s episode, dear listeners, is the second half of our John Carpenter discussion! And, of course, returning from last week is Master of Carpentry, Noel Thingvall!

As you can probably tell from our diction during this episode, Melissa and Windy had a whole litany of drinks coursing through their veins while recording. If you care to join in, Fox Barrel Pear Cider and Great Lakes Brewing Company Burning River beer are recommended.
