Seriously, the last few minutes of this interview will leave you feeling so good inside that we didn’t want to wait another day to re-broadcast it!

Krsy's unbreakable work ethic is just the push you need around the time of making New Years resolutions!

Starting off with an exhausted recap of this year’s 48-hour LIVE marathon (including what happened after the cameras were off), Adam and Joe sum up their 6th annual charity benefit which raised a whopping $37,000.00+ for Save A Yorkie Rescue and was hands down their best marathon yet! Bruce and Casey discuss the making of BLACK FRIDAY (now available on VOD), what makes a good horror/comedy work, Bruce playing against type, the secrets to a long career, and Bruce’s feelings on movie piracy - just to list a few of the topics. We’d tell you more, but spoilers aren’t “groovy.”
This episode was recorded LIVE during YORKIETHON 6 (Friday December 10, 2021) so forgive any audio weirdness that may happen from time to time. As always, Patrons get the full conversation (with all of the good stuff)!
