Episode 12 - Lifeforce, Dolls, Prince of Darkness, The Lamp, Elvira (Halloween Special)

November 1, 2017

All right! Our first Radicast Halloween Special--and we totally released it in time for Halloween! Right?! I’ve barely slept these past couple days in order to get this recorded and edited on time, so I can only assume that I totally succeeded. Fuck yeah! So, happy Halloween!

We cover five (FIVE!) ‘80s horror films in this episode, from classics to delightfully terrible trash you’ve probably never heard of. We discuss and review Lifeforce (1985), Dolls (1987), Prince of Darkness (1987), The Lamp (1987, AKA The Outing), and Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (1988).

Intro and outro songs by Michael Cook.

Episode 11 - Predator, Adventures in Babysitting (Bob guest)

October 30, 2017

Probably our funniest episode so far. Certainly our drunkest.

Jessica and I recently did that whole marriage thing, but instead of embarking on a honeymoon we sat down with Bob, one of my longtime best friends (ever since he discovered I had a Game Genie in 5th grade), to watch the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger classic, Predator.

We also discuss another 1987 classic, Adventures in Babysitting (or, as you wacky Europeans know it, A Night on the Town).

This is the first episode we recorded with our new microphone, so hopefully you can notice an auditory upgrade. However, it might not be too apparent as the three of us had to crowd around the one mic. Hopefully this podcast takes off so we can afford a totally rad multi-mic setup.

This episode was also a beast to edit, since Jessica was drunk and Bob got progressively more hammered as the recording went on. Lots of drunken rambles, false-starts, and anecdotes, but it shaped up to be one of my favorite episodes.

Episode 10 - Labyrinth, Legend

September 26, 2017

This time we discuss two very iconic mid-'80s fantasy films that have a lot in common. They both bombed at the box office only to go on to become cult classics. They both star gorgeous "cold" brunettes. And they both are titled a single word that starts with the letter "L".

I'm speaking, of course, of the 1986 Jim Henson directed Labyrinth and the 1985 Ridley Scott directed Legend.

Other media we discuss in brief: The Dark Crystal [1982], Phenomena [1985], Seven Minutes in Heaven [1985]

Episode 9 - Troll, The Golden Child (Caitlin guest)

July 10, 2017

In this week’s episode, our friend Caitlin joins us as we discuss two more films from 1986: the strange and whimsical horror fantasy Troll (pseudo-predecessor to the infamous “Best Worst Movie” Troll 2), and the Eddie Murphy action-adventure comedy The Golden Child.

Other media we discuss in brief: Golden Boy [1995-1996], Ator l'invincibile [1982], Troll 2 [1990], Just One of the Guys [1985], Big Trouble in Little China [1986], Cobra [1986], Weird Science [1985]

Episode 8 - Class of Nuke ‘Em High, Crocodile Dundee

June 28, 2017

Whoa! After waaaay too long of a break, we're back to weekly podcasting.

We kick off our glorious return with this episode where we review two very different films from 1986: the bizarre high school gross-out comedy Class of Nuke 'Em High (Troma's second best movie), and the chick flick disguised as an action-adventure comedy, Crocodile Dundee.

Other movies we discuss in brief: The Toxic Avenger [1984], Airplane! [1980], Robocop 2 [1990], Romancing the Stone [1984]

Intro and outro songs by Michael Cook.

We dedicate this episode to Matty (Australian Dude).

Episode 7 - The New Kids, Care Bears Movie, Private Resort

December 6, 2016

We thought we'd try something a little different this episode and cover three films, but in less depth than we typically do. We figure this would be a good way to feature things that we otherwise wouldn’t talk about since we'd be hard pressed to discuss them for an entire episode. Let us know if you prefer this format, or if you'd rather see us stick to one topic per episode. Currently, I foresee us doing a mix of both, but we'd like to hear your feedback.

The three movies we discuss are all quite different, starting with the teen thriller The New Kids, then things shift from spooky to saccharine as we discuss The Care Bears Movie, and finally, we talk about the sex comedy that Johnny Depp is embarrassed to have starred in: Private Resort. Just about the only thing these three movies have in common is they were all released in 1985.

Other movies we discuss in brief: Class of 1984 [1982], Zapped! [1982]

Episode 6 - Evil Dead 2 (Gregg guest)

November 23, 2016

We have a mega-special double-length episode this week. Not only does it feature our first guest, the awesome Gregg Samsa, but it also features us discussing a movie that's incredibly important to me: Evil Dead 2. Of course, we also talk a lot about the original Evil Dead and Army of Darkness. We also discuss how horror movies in general evolved over the course of the '80s, and at the end of the episode, we tell the tale of how Gregg and the "vampire killer of Paris" are largely responsible for Jessica and I meeting. I also share a few anecdotes from my days as the singer of the horror-themed rock band The EverDead, including my very intimate encounter with a gay zombie.

Episode 4 - Xtro

November 18, 2016

We feel that this is the episode where we hit our podcasting stride. Definitely the best one yet. We discuss Xtro, a bizarre 1982 British sci-fi horror movie made in the wake of E.T.'s mega success, in which we learn that some extraterrestrials aren't friendly.

Episode 3 - Police Story

November 18, 2016

Episode 3 is rad as hell. We discuss Police Story, a 1985 kung fu action comedy co-written, directed, and starring Jackie Chan. You should totally listen to it and learn all about our “Jackie Chan experience.”
