Great Show But......
I love the show, I love the topics, I love hearing how Rod gets so excited when he talks about the movies - But, for the love of GOD please mute the co-hosts mic when Rod is speaking. Again, great show but you tend to say "uh" or "uh ha" after EVERY sentance Rod speaks. Once you hear it, you cant listen to anything else.....
Excellent companion to the NaschyCast!
From the folks who bring us the terrific "NaschyCast" comes "The Bloody Pit" -- a more wide-ranging examination of groovy genre cinema. Guaranteed fun for cult movie fans!
