•• 07.28.13 — Sunday Podcast Roundup ••

sunday-podcast-roundup-mastheadThis week’s Sunday podcast roundup is a little late. (Sorry, I’m playing catch-up!) Anyway, I’m changing the layout to make it easier to find your favourite podcasts. Enjoy!

••  FILM  ••

This week, the guys at ATTACK OF THE KILLER PODCAST dive into the shallow end of the Hollywood talent pool and reel in the surprise summer hit, Sharknado! Join Mike Saunders, Jason Bolinger, Justin Beahm, Dustin Neill, Joe Zerull, and guest Steven Tracy for a hilarious discussion as they parse this strange shark phenomenon (warning: spoilers abound)!

CinemaBeef-mastheadWrestling fans rejoice! In the latest episode of CINEMA BEEF PODCAST, Wildman Willis teams up with host Gary Hill for an all-wrestling show! So turn up the heat on the mat, let the hardway juice fly, and get rrready to rumble!

corpse-cast-mastheadHey, why not join Mike Cadaver and Shane Diablo on the latest episode of CORPSE CAST? This week, they check out the Voodoo Organist and his 2013 release, Vampire Empire!
Umm, if you’ve never heard of this guy, you have to check out his show on YouTube; I found one performance where he plays a theremin, and it’s pretty cool!
After that, Mike and Shane pass judgement on last year’s uber-creepy Lovely Molly.

It’s a two-fer on this week’s CREEPERSINCAST! In the first episode, Creep goes back 40 years (wow, can you believe it?) to 1973’s Black Mama, White Mama. Then he stops off at Blood Diner (1987) before discussing his short, Cannibal Blood Girl (which you can find in the DVD anthology, Theater of the Deranged). In the second episode, Creep checks out Sharknado (what is it with this movie, anyway?), before discussing his film Awesome Girl Gang Street Fighter (2013), along with a whole whack of other cool stuff! Partake and enjoy!

Yikes! There’s a Maniac (2012) loose in the DEAD ON DEMAND studios, as Billy and Blake take a look at this remake of the ’80s classic! They also review Evil Dead, Poltergeist 3, Come Out and Play, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and Fright Night. You’ll be sleeping with the lights on for sure!

drunkenZombie-mastheadThe DRUNKEN ZOMBIE gang will have you seeing double this week: The first episode is a quick review, as Bryan and the two Mikes row out to the Pacific Rim (2013). Then, the zombies start their “month of sci-fi” with episode 189, as they climb aboard the Lewis and Clark in search of the Event Horizon (1997). This is followed by a hilarious (and spooky) discussion about a certain ‘movement’ that was started by a certain science fiction author a long time ago in a certain galaxy near, near to here (so I’m not talkin’ Star Wars).

kruegernation-mastNEWThis week, it’s a double bill from KRUEGERNATION! In Episode 32, Johnny Krueg looks at the best of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Wrong Turn franchises, and then describes an encounter he had with some honest-to-goodness, mouth-breathing missing links at a local theatre! Then in Episode 33, the Krueg holds his breath and dives in deep to find the lowest points of both the TCM and WT franchises. Lady Deathrattle follows with a review of the Maniac reboot, and Johnny kicks Sony in the ‘nads during his Look What You Did! segment (Sweet!).

motion picture massacre-mastheadVaughn delivers another MOTION PICTURE MASSACRE as he reviews The Last Horror Film (1982) and The Telephone Book (1971)! This episode is the last time he’ll mention his Madman contest, so make sure you listen in to get the details! The discussion also includes the Maniac remake, Vaughn’s recent appearances on some other ‘casts (including episode 174 of the Talk Without Rhythm podcast), Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (1985), Chernobyl Diaries (2012), Oz the Great and Powerful (2013), The Lone Ranger (2013), and The Baby (1973). Aw, Yeah!

movie-podcast-weekly-mastheadMOVIE PODCAST WEEKLY brings you a three-hour marathon of podcasting goodness this week, as they see Red 2 (2013) with crime fiction author Anthony Bruno and then summon artist and horror cinephile Chris Excess and podcaster and ghost hunter Ron Martin for a review of The Conjuring (2013). That’s not all, though: cohosts Jason, Karl, and Andy are joined by their guests as they review a whack of cool films, including The Devil’s Carnival (2012), Absentia (2011), Murder by Death (1976), The Shawshank Redemption (1994), Eyes Wide Shut (1999), Mother (2009), Thirst (2009), and — well, the list goes on. Enjoy!

NOTLP-mastheadThe latest episode of NIGHT OF THE LIVING PODCAST has the gang interviewing star Thomas Ian Nicholas and writer-director Brian A. Metcalf, about their new film, The Lost Tree!



terror-troop-masthead-2-flareTERROR TROOP attacks the genre on both flanks this week, with two awesome episodes! In show 65, The Emily talks to Director Stuart Urban about his new horror comedy, May I Kill U? She also joins cohosts Boss Butcher, Dan of the Dead, and Wildman Willis to take aim at Dog Soldiers (2002), Retreat (2011), The Hills Have Eyes (2006), American Movie (1999), and Doghouse (2009)! Then, in episode 66, the Troop looks at horror anthologies Black Night (2006) and Creepshow 2 (1987), followed by reviews of Wilderness (2006) and Vile (2011). Then it’s a discussion of video games Tomb Raider (the reboot), Marvel Heroes, Marvel War of Heroes, and Fatal Frame (oops! to be continued next week due to weather-related connection problems for cohost Chris Excess)!

••  WRITING  ••

This week on DEAD ROBOTS’ SOCIETY, co-hosts Justin, Paul, and Terry talk about writing for money versus writing for the love of the craft. As always, the conversation is both interesting and funny! (They also talk about the ComiXwriter Kickstarter, which just exceeded its goal by about 2,700 dollars!)

grammar-girl-mastheadIn the latest episode of GRAMMAR GIRL, host Mignon Fogarty talks about dangling participles, and how they can be very dangerous in the wrong hands! Here’s an example from the show:

Hiking the trail, the birds chirped loudly.

If this sentence seemed okay to you, then you need to download this episode of Grammar Girl, STAT! (Oh, and if you aren’t quite sure what a participle is, she tells you that, too.)

justines-bookends-mastheadThis week on JUSTINE’S BOOKENDS REVIEW, we look at The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty. According to host Justine Lewkowicz, it’s “a novel that looks at how truth can be both liberating and imprisoning.”  Hmmm, so truth is like a cell-phone contract  🙂


writing-excuses-mastheadThe gang at WRITING EXCUSES continue their eighth season by recording a live-audience episode at their sold-out workshop and retreat. Join Dan, Howard, Brandon, and Mary as they answer questions about international publishing, outlining versus discovery writing, and separating your full-time job from your writing time!

    • Thanks, Justin! Dead Robots’ Society is a lot of fun to listen to, and also an excellent resource for writers. If you have a DRS graphic for that you’d like me to use, I’d really appreciate it 🙂

    • Hey, you bet! I’ve been listening to podcasts for years, and Drunken Zombie is definitely one of my favourites. I set up this blog to make it easier for people to find shows like yours, which are consistently better than most. Thanks for the feedback, by the way 🙂
