    What's Your Damage - Young Sherlock Stuffs Sixteen Candles

    We go back even further into the archives to check out Noel (Beyond the Neon) and Mike's (Chinstroker VS Punter) first joint foray into the world of 1980s movies for their tragically short-lived show What's Your Damage.

    In this first episode, Mike introduces Noel to 1985's Young Sherlock Holmes, Noel introduces Mike to 1985's The Stuff and they both delve into the John Hughes classic from 1984, Sixteen Candles.

    What's Your Damage - Escape From Pee Wee's Caddyshack

    What's Your Damage - Escape From Pee Wee's Caddyshack

    A real step back in time here for an archive episode of What's Your Damage - the 1980s movie show from Noel (Beyond the Neon) and Mike (Chinstroker vs Punter) which ran for just three shows.

    Randomly, this episode is episode two (we are digging out the others), but the pair get deep into some great flicks from the era - Escape From New York, Pee Wee's Big Adventure and Caddyshack. And at over two hours, there's some good listening here!

    Adventures in VHS - Devouring Waves and Monster

    Adventures in VHS - Devouring Waves and Monster

    Adventures In VHS is the podcast and book dedicated to the lost format of VHS. In this third episode from the archives, it's back-to-back creatures from the deep with Lamberto Bava's Devouring Waves (1984) and Barbara Peeters' Monster (1980 - AKA Humanoids from the Deep).

    As always, Noel looks at the history of the movies themselves, the VHS tapes he acquired for the book and everything from the trailers to the artwork to whether or not you should be checking them out yourself.

    Play It Forward - Dirty, Romeo is Bleeding and American Made

    Noel, Marc and Ian are back with a brand new episode of Play It Forward - the show where each host 'gifts' a co-host one iTunes movie they think the other will enjoy. So, how well do they know one another's tastes?

    Play It Forward ran for some time as a bonus show on the Film Basterds feed, but for 2020 we've come back to it with fresh eyes and will be publishing a new episode every month right here... with a fourth Pod Syndicate family member joining us for the upcoming February show!

    In this episode, Noel gifts Marc the 2005 corrupt cop drama Dirty, Marc gifts Ian the 1993 Neo noir Romeo is Bleeding, and Ian gifts Noel the 2015 blockbuster Tom Cruise smuggling adventure American Made.
