    A Taste of Horror Podcast

    A Taste of Horror Podcast

    I was out at a friend’s birthday lunch and someone brought up horror movies just after the food was served. Judging from the conversation, I discovered everyone has a favourite horror movie they remember from childhood.

    “I loved Carrie! The Brian De Palma film, not the remake!”

    “I remember watching John Carpenter’s The Thing!”

    “I liked psychological horror…like Rosemary’s Baby,” I confessed.

    “Have you seen Targets?” Steven Boltz asked from the other side of the table. “I have,” I replied, “I saw it as part of a double feature.” I consider myself a horror movie fan, but Steven’s a horror movie fanatic with 3000 films in his personal collection. Steven Boltz is also the Creative Director of the Knack Theatre in Melbourne. They run regular script readings in Melbourne. A month later, Knack Theatre hosted a reading of my play Ghost Story. After the reading, I asked Steven if he’d like to be a guest on my podcast, Noel Anderson's 15 Mins of Fame and chat about horror movies! 

    In the podcast, we discuss social, sexual and ecological horror, and chinwag about the adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining. All up, 20 classic horror movies get a mention! So grab some popcorn and push play. 

    Welcome to A Taste of Horror! 

    Hosted by Noel Anderson with special guest Steven T Boltz

    Local Laughs Podcast

    Local Laughs Podcast

    The Tap House Hotel in Balaclava is a couple of blocks away, and I have often dropped in for a little comedy on Monday night. The evening is called “Local Laughs,” except during the COVID-19 lockdown, it’s been on every week for 19 years. The longest-running comedy room in Melbourne! Judith Lucy, Dave Hughes and Adam Hills have all worked the tiny Tap House stage. A night at Local Laughs wouldn’t be the same without its mistress of mirth and MC, Janet McLeod. Initially from Ballarat, and dubbed the Fairy Godmother of Melbourne Comedy, she is a writer, performer, trivia trailblazer and co-host of the popular Cinema Fiasco. Janet is also the producer of Local Laughs.

    "I was a shy child. It wasn’t until I started doing theatre sports, I started to loosen up. I found my crew"

    Dirty Little Secrets Podcast

    Dirty Little Secrets Podcast

    Nandita Chakraborty is an Indian Australian author with two published novels under her belt. Her new book Dirty Little Secrets, a memoir set in Delhi and Melbourne, takes her readers on a no-holds-barred account of what it means to lose oneself and rise like a phoenix to start anew.

    “The distance from Delhi to Melbourne is 10,213 km and the total distance to travel in search of oneself is limitless” – Nandita Chakroborty

    Nandita and I are friends on Facebook. I had no idea that behind her cheery DM’s she held secrets, suffered terrible heartache and sustained a disability after falling 40 metres. When we next texted on social media, I asked Nandita if she’d like to be a guest on my podcast channel, Noel Anderson’s 15 Mins of Fame .

    She replied, to my delight. “I’d love to.”

    Nandita then sent an attachment about the dangers of online dating. Headline – ‘She thought she’d found love, but instead, she was scammed!’ “I’m featured in this article. Have you seen the Tinder Swindler?” I hadn’t seen the Netflix series. But made a mental note to view it. “Watch it!” she texted back. I hit thumbs up 

    Listen to “Dirty Little Secrets Podcast!”

    Nandita supports Disability Australia, Beyond Blue and Bully Zero.

    Intoxicated - A Podcast Noir

    Intoxicated - A Podcast Noir

    Several years ago I devised and directed a play for the Melbourne Fringe Festival around a monologue I wrote called Confide in Me . The show was called Love Kills 2017  It consisted of a collection of stories about love-going-horribly-wrong. One piece, Intoxicated, was written by a lovely lady called Melka Stansah. When I first read Intoxicated I was surprised that such a noir tale of murder, lust, and revenge could come from a sweet and unassuming creature!

    Gina Gray, Gina Gray. Her beautiful face, her mysterious perfume!

    To help Melka’s noir vision along, I called on an actor I’d worked on/off with for over a decade, Graham Murray. I knew Graham had the right eccentricity to pull it off! The rest I guess is history. Love Kills 2017 was a surprise hit of the festival and Intoxicated a favourite with our enthusiastic audiences.

    Intoxicated is presented here as a podcast. It is written by Melka Stansah, performed by Graham Murray and produced and directed by Noel Anderson.

    Roadside - Inspired by horror writer Stephen King

    Roadside - Inspired by horror writer Stephen King

    This Stephen King inspired tale will make you think twice about going for a stroll along the roadside. 

    Some years ago, I joined the Melbourne Writers Social Group, partly because writing can be lonely and also to spy on other writers, maybe even even collaborate on something.

    Mat Clarke, writer and performer in this podcast,  is the organiser of the group. Each year MWSG produce an online anthology, I thought it might be fun to record ROADSIDE a piece from the anthology as a short podcast. Both Mat and I are fans of horror writer Stephen King, often quoting from King’s book On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft. There’s more than a nod to King in this collaboration. I hope you enjoy listening to ROADSIDE: The Podcast, it’s sure to send a shiver up and down your spine! Cheers Noel Anderson

    ROADSIDE: The Podcast – Written and Performed by Mat Clarke – Edited and Directed by Noel Anderson – adapted from a short story in Melbourne Writers Social Anthology – Running time 4.46 minutes.
