Michael May, Rob Graham, and Friends discuss TV, movies, comics, games, and anything else they happen to think of.
231 | A Christmas Carol (1938)
Happy Holidays! To kick off a busy Christmas season on the show, Michael and Rob welcome back Mike Westfall (Advent Calendar House) to discuss this year's Christmas Carol adaptation. It's Edwin L Marin's 1938 film starring Reginald Owen as Scrooge and Gene Lockhart as Bob Cratchit. The movie makes severe cuts to the story while adding other plot elements, but that's not all. There are also bad wigs, the most cheery Fred ever, a super cute Ghost of Christmas Past, and much much more.
230 | '80s Music
Michael, Rob, Jody Collins, and Becky Tyler each create a mixtape with ten of their favorite '80s songs. Some songs have personal importance, others are simply iconic, but all 40 help define the decade musically for our panel. Listen and let us know which playlists most reflect your taste and what songs (whether we mentioned them or not) best exemplify the '80s for you.
229 | After Midnight – Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man
Michael and Jess finish Universal's solo Frankenstein movies with The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942) before checking out the introduction of Lon Chaney Jr's iconic werewolf character in The Wolf Man (1941). Then they wrap up with the creation of Universal's Monster Cinematic Universe in Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943).
228 | The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
Michael, Rob, and Karen continue their Bondathon with a game-changing entry in the series, The Spy Who Loved Me. Co-starring Barbara Bach and featuring Caroline Munro, it introduces new recurring characters like Jaws and General Gogol while also raising the bar for sheer spectacle. But is it also good?!
227 | A Spooky Vacation Podcast Smoothie
Michael and his wife Diane visited upstate New York for Halloween. They eventually ended up in Sleepy Hollow to spend time with the Headless Horseman, but also got to visit with one Mr Rob Graham and his wife Collette. In this special in-person recording, Michael and Diane talk with Rob about their Sleepy Hollow adventure and Rob shares his and Collette's recent spooky trip to Universal Studios and Disney World in Florida.
226 | Dungeons & Dragons, Session One - A Drop Inn Drubbing
Moby the Bard and his Bunnymen companions check into an inn to clean up after their recent griffin hunt. But their sleep is interrupted by screams and murder, leading the trio to investigate and assist a former pirate accused of the crime as well as his adopted daughter.
Dungeon Master Ben Graham leads Rob Graham, Jeff Somogyi, and Michael May in their first full Dungeons & Dragons adventure together. Be sure to check out Episode 183 for the players' discussion of their histories with the game and the introduction to Ben's world.
And visit the After Lunch website to see maps from the adventure: The City of Trellan and a sketch of Jackson's exploration of the Drop Inn.
GREAT CONTENT AND PANEL OF HOSTS
I’m a fan of Michael May and any podcast he appears on. He is the perfect choice to take on the new iteration of The “Nerd Lunch” podcast format. I love the subjects they cover and they have a bunch of fun series started (swashbuckler’s, MCU, Sherlock Holmes, etc….) So I usually laugh and learn a little each episode.
Nerdy before nerdy was cool.
