This roundup focuses on some of my favourite film-related podcasts! The guys at Attack of the Killer podcast continue their two-part retrospective of director George A. Romero; the Horror Movie Podcast site is finally re-releasing episodes of the short-lived but fantastic Horror Metropolis podcast from last year; and Johnny at Krueger Nation continues his awesome retrospective of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Wrong Turn franchises! And that’s just for starters!
This week, the Sunday roundup contains all kinds of podcast-ey goodness: Nature tells you why only one in three people on earth can drink milk; 100 Years of Horror takes you back to 1959, when director William Castle used Percepto technology to shock theatre audiences out of their seats; Grammar Girl explains why some people feel entitled to say things like ‘we are not amused’ without being ironic! And that’s just for starters — enjoy!
In this spotlight, film critic and author Laremy Legel joins co-hosts Jason Pyle, Karl Huddleston, and Andy Howell of MOVIE PODCAST WEEKLY for a lively and wide-ranging discussion of films and the film industry. Eventually, of course, it devolves into a bitter, bare-knuckle brawl as Jason defends the new del Toro film, Pacific Rim, from, well, everybody else. Then Josh Ligairi drops by for the show’s mini-review segment and talks about eight freakin’ movies before he turns the mic over to someone else! In other words, it’s a typically awesome episode 🙂

•• ATTACK OF THE KILLER PODCAST ••
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)!
In 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!
•• General Interest ••
This week on AIRLINE PILOT GUY, Captain Jeff updates you on the Asiana 214 accident and the continuing problems that plague the new 787 Dreamliners from Boeing. Then he talks about Domino’s Pizza’s plans to use drone helicopters to deliver pizzas in the U.K. (Great idea. The only thing standing in their way, of course, is a guy with a loaded shotgun and a hankering for free pizza.)
