    Introducing: The Lost Drive-In



    Podcast Description:
    The ‘Lost Drive-In’ is the latest podcast from LSG Media and unlike anything you’ve heard in movie podcasting. Science fiction. Horror. Action schlock. Cult and B-movies. Every week Matthew and Dean watch a genre film and discuss it in a raw, honest, and often hilarious way. Their uncensored conversational style is less stuffy criticism, and more joking with your profane pals. You will howl with laughter and be occasionally shocked by a ridiculous statement or maybe even an unexpected insight. New episodes drop Mondays.

Hilarious and introspective!

I stumbled across the science fiction podcast a few months ago and it has quickly become my favourite podcast , the hosts Dean, Matthew and sometimes Jessica are very funny and they cover a wide range of films. They have provided me with countless hours of entertainment and have a die hard fan from now on!

Childish adolescent humour with too much swearing

This podcast covers every movie I love and obsess over the minutiae of. Highly recommended if you enjoy 80s-00s classics like Indiana Jones, Predator, Alien, T2, etc.

With enough behind the scenes and character/set analysis to massively geek out over, the real fun is in the banter that regularly goes too far. I love laughing at this, it is a great podcast hosted by funny hosts who are comfortable geeking out over great classic movies, and not afraid to offend.

Loving it Downunder ,

Recently stumbled across this podcast and am truly hooked. Smart, funny,a little gross and the funniest accents since Keanu in Dracula. Making me go back and rewatch some great films and relive my first viewings. Even the australian accents are passable
