Fave Five From Fans is a weekly Podcast where I invite a friend with whom I share a common interest in some Pop Culture topic, i.e. Horror Movies, Literature, Toys, etc., and we each make a list of our Favorite Five things from that common genre. Please note the distinction between “Favorite” and “Best” or “Top”, as I want my guests to feel free to make their choices based on whatever criteria THEY see fit. Sure, it can be rated on scripts, story, cinematography, but also know that if it holds a special place because of a personal reason, it could be thrown in there. That’s what makes it a Favorite.
We don’t share our lists until we sit down in the Plastic Microphone Studio (or across the Internet) and lay them out for you, starting off with Honorable Mentions, those selections that didn’t quite make the Fave Five, for good reason OR bad, and then we’ll take turns unveiling our choices backward from 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1. During the show, you’ll hear personal stories, behind-the-scenes info, trivia, and probably some bad puns. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy listening as much as we love recording it.
We post episodes every Friday, so be sure to Subscribe and check back as we explore everything from Star Trek to Summer Camp, Musical Numbers to Mob Movies, Edgar Allen Poe to Stephen King, and almost everywhere in between. We’re going to have a lot of fun, and we want you right there with us.

And as we like to say, “It may not be the best, it may not be most popular, but if it’s your favorite, then it’s good enough for us!”

FFFF Ep042 Fave Five Episodes of the X-Files
Agents Fox “Spooky” Mulder and Dana “Starbuck” Scully became a worldwide success, spawned over 200 episodes, 2 movies, multiple comic book series, and much more. And we loved every weird moment. Kevin from Paper Heroes joins me from the depths of the J. Edgar Hoover Building in Washington, D.C. to compare our Favorite Episodes.

FFFF Ep041 Fave Five Action Figure Toy Lines
Action Figures, yes. SuperHero guys, sure. But never dolls! Whatever you called them, we grew up playing with and living adventures with these toys. In this episode, I have invited Aaron Smith, the owner of Cajun Gamer (a Toy/Comic/Game Store!!!) to sit down with me and discuss our favorite Action Figures. So bust open that packaging, unseal that blister pack, and experience this episode of Fave Five From Fans.
FFFF Ep040 Fave Five Movie Siblings
Here it is, one of the most special Christmas Presents I’ve ever received. My daughters Abbi and Lilli Dot gifted me a Podcast, one all about siblings. As the 2 coolest sisters I can imagine, these two take me to task to choose my Favorite Movie Siblings. And what a list it is! So get ready for a familial episode of Fave Five From Fans.
FFFF Ep039 Fave Five Twilight Zone Season 1
Rod Serling gave us so much amazing television that just one episode is just not enough to cover it. That’s why I’ve asked Loh and Super Gus to join me for a series of 5 episodes covering each season of the original “Twilight Zone” that aired on CBS from 1959 to 1964. Each episode we will each select 2 of our favorite episodes and take turns discussing why they are so incredible. It will be a journey into… The Twilight Zone.
FFFF Ep038 Fave Five Androids & Robots
The future is now. I sit down with the Super Gus-Bot 3000 to discuss our favorite Androids and Robots from Sci-Fi films and television shows. Join us as we discuss the future of robotics by watching the films of the past. You won’t believe some of the ones we come up with. All of that, and not one crossovers. I mean, it does not compute! Yeah, we might have a few screws loose, but in the end, who doesn’t? And remember, a robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws, or with Fave Five From Fans.
