All of a sudden one stops and takes stock of the past few weeks and it’s impossible to ignore the fact that you’ve been hosting or guest hosting on a ton of podcasts. This happens to everyone right? Seriously, I think I’ve been making up for my recent internet sabbatical in the form of podcasting. It’s immediate, the editing is minimal (as if I edit my writing, pshaw), and the conversations tend to be a lot more fun than just banging away at my keyboard. I’m not really comparing the two for any other reason than trying to rationalize how in the past two week’s I’ve had six podcast announcements! Seriously, I guess I like talking…
So, what are the other three shows I’ve been involved with recently you might be asking yourself? Well, first off, there’s a brand new episode of the Cult Film Club, the show I do with some criminally awesome co-hosts, Paxton Holley and Jaime Hood. This should be of interest to folks who enjoy this site as the movie we chose for discussion is none other than the batshit insane Karate Kid III!
For real, this flick is crazy, and as my co-hosts point out, Karate Kid III is basically a parody of the first KK film. John Kreese, down on his luck after all of the Cobra Kai students have abandoned him in the wake of some crazy car-window punching and nose honking, seeks revenge against Daniel and Miyagi by hooking up with his secret CK grand master and old war buddy Terry Silver. They lure Daniel to the dark side of the, um, karate, and well, you have to watch this film to believe that it was actually made. We chat about the film, the actors, some dream re-writes, and how we all secretly wish we were Terry Silver. You can listen to the episode and join the Cult Film Club here!
Next up is the long awaited release of the new episode of the Saturday Supercast!
This time I check back in with hosts Jerzy Drozd and Dave Roman to discuss one of my all-time favorite flicks, 1986′s Transformers the Movie. We’re joined by the super cool Matt Hawkins to discuss the film, the soundtrack, the casting, and we all provide some interesting arguments for how the Decepticons managed to hand the Autobots their buts so easily at the start of the flick! We all had way too much for with the conversation and it ended up a long show. So Jerzy and Dave broke it in half. Check out Part 1 over at Sugary Serials!
Last but not least, I was kindly asked to be a guest on the latest Retro Retro Retro Podcast by the really awesome and swell guy Raven J!
The discussion is all about magazine memories, NES and Gensis video game reviews, as well as some movie reviews. I sat in on the discussion of magazines with Raven and his crew and had a blast. Check out their site, and you can find the episode here!
