Episode 129: Thornado!

MCUWe’re back, dear listeners, with an episode all about power dynamics in the MCU (Marvel Comics movie universe) and superhero movies in general! And for this extremely long (and kinda drunken) discussion, we are joined by geography professor David Tyler McKay!

If you would like to drink along (and why wouldn’t you?), we recommend either Bushmills Irish Whiskey (Melissa’s choice), Grupo Olarra ‘Acantus’ Cabernet Sauvignon – Tempranillo (Windy’s choice), or New Amsterdam Vodka (which is what Melissa was feeding David).

Episode 54: Neon Escalators and Things: Part 1

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.

Episode 1: WTFW?

Xanadu Sq LogoWelcome to our inaugural podcast! Please join us in our love of movies.

If you care to drink along with us, this week’s wine is a Malbec from Barefoot Wines.

Please excuse our audio problems. The static was only discovered after we recorded the podcast. (Apparently, Snowball microphones do not agree with Audacity.) We did what we could to rescue the audio. We promise that we’ve fixed this entirely for future recording sessions.

And no, we never do manage to explain in the episode why we named the podcast Xanadu Cinema Pleasure Dome. How about you posit a theory and e-mail it to us? pleasuredome@xanaducinema.com
