So glad to be back, with a lineup of all new content to be released! There are a ton of new episodes planned to be release on our usual scheduled bi-weekly show. We are all so very thankful to you, the fans, for standing with us over this time. There has been an obvious pause while we work things out, and as a team, we are ready to deliver!
On today’s episode, Jim and Bill dig up an un-released episode that was bumped due to prior commitments, but we are so happy to finally release it for you. Lots of great content, including the usual laughs that has become the trademark of our show. It is a jam-packed episode featuring reviews of the films “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” (1920), and “Candy Corn” (2019).
This show also features and interview with Jeremy Kayser (writer/director/producer) to give some insight to his portion of the ZOS Films feature film “Bizarre Mayhem”! We dig down deep in the process of Jeremy’s first directing experience, including many stories on set, the writing process, first time directing jitters, and probably a few bleeped out words.

Episode 23 – Better Late Than Never Christmas Episode

On today’s episode, we call this the “Better Late Than Never Christmas Episode 2020”. Jim and Bill do a review of “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation”. Filled with the usual review stuff, and packed with tons of comedy. A great way to end the year, and get some good laughs.

Episode 17 – Spotlighted Segment Dating Ourselves Podcast Favorite Cult Classics

No minions on today’s show. On today’s very special episode, we have the gang from the “Dating Ourselves Podcast” on the show, featuring Brian, Paul, and Neva. There are WAAAAYYYYY too many great moments on today’s show, but here are some highlights.

Bill pulls double duty and loses his mind while talking Neva. Paul continues to be the glue of a podcast show and would eat pig guts to be in a film. Neva loves to recite Monty Python films (and is not quite dead yet). Jim expresses his love for early bird showings of films, as Brian rips into Jim for being an old man (a favorite of Bill’s).
