It’s grown on me:
Enjoying the content more now.
Thanks so much
I don’t listen to every episode of this podcast.
I’m not always interested in some of the authors or books covered.
Bear with me here for a moment.
While I might not always listen, I always smile when I see each new episode posted. Interviews with writers and creators speaking about art and enterprise I’ve never heard of.
I know of no other podcast where such a variety of topics are discussed in such measured and intelligent conversations.
So thank you - for the shows I listen to and those I don’t.
Above all else, this podcast serves up welcome reminders that there are so many talented and creative people out there telling stories and offering images.
Again. Thank you.
Had Promise, Rife with Errors
Was very excited when I found this show, most the participants seem very friendly, make for nice conversation. But after about a dozen episodes, it’s revealed itself to be full of errors on the various films they talk about, like they scanned Wikipedia or IMDb for their “factual” talking points.
The “token female” (the show runner’s wife who doesn’t care for genre films) is also asked to discuss female issues, but shows an ignorance in that regard too. On multiple episodes she claims with authority that women were “knocked out” in childbirth into the late 1960s, into the late 1970s. This is patently untrue, “twilight sleep” was done away with by those eras, and the mother was very much a part of the birth. (Granted, an occasional doctor may have used it, but it was not de rigueur as their “expert” claims).
Same for the guy who kept calling the occult wave of films of the ‘60s/‘70s “Satanic Panic” films. I did a “slow burn” every time I heard this guy throw that buzz phrase around about these “elevated” horror films under discussion. They were films that trafficked in popular interest is occultism, not reactionary “Satanic Panic” that would raise its stupid head in the conservative 1980s where that term actually applies.
These are just some examples of why the show is so frustrating. Nice people, but if you don’t truly know of the things you speak, it’s just a bunch of chatter.
