sunday-podcast-roundup-mastheadIn this week’s podcast roundup, we look at some great (and grating) movies from today and the past, the challenges of no-budget filmmaking, and the future of podcasting, science fiction, and pizza delivery. Bon appetit!

•• NEW SHOW •• (Well, new to me  :-))
Phantom Erik, co-host of the Spew Podcast, has just uploaded Episode 45 of his own 100 YEARS OF HORROR podcast! This is a pretty awesome show, where he tracks the changes and developments in horror films over the past century, one year at a time. This episode covers the year 1956, a time when the horror industry was going through some pretty major ‘sea changes.’ The movie on tap: The Black Sheep, starring Basil Rathbone, Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr., and John Carradine! (BTW, if you want to see the list of movies he’s covered so far, you can check it out here.)
