It's a Podcast! A PODCAST!!!!
In a world where there's one podcast, and another, and another -- a whole nest of them -- I'm really happy to find one that oiffers interesting, engaging, and insightful conversations without a whiff of hipster irony or self-indulgent navel gazing. These guys wear their Monster Kid fangdom comfortably and naturally. It feels like they'd be having the same discussion between themselves regardless of whether or not a microphone was present.
I love hearing people talking about the stuff they love (especially when it's the same stuff I dig), and these fellas are both inviting and inclusive (and fresh, which is tough to pull off for those of us who've been immersed in this genre since childhood) making it perfect for both long-time Monster Kids and those just beginning to amble amidst the shadows of Lon Chaney Lane.
Happy to have found it and look forward to more. Happy Haunting!
And that completes my final report until touchdown.
I love your podcast so much! I wish it was weekly! As I wrote to Scott Weitz, you are my people. Your podcast reminds me of the conversations I would have in high school with my geek friends, before being a geek became mainstream. Still, our kind of geekdom is still rather rarefied and I find that in your podcast. Long live Apes, Bond, the Walking Dead, and Universal Monsters!
A Meeting of Monster Kids
I’m going to keep this short and sweet. If you love classic horror, sci-fi, genre TV and listening to folks who also love these things talk knowledgeably about them, then this podcast is a must!
