CF29: The Matt Monagle Origin Story
We're turning the spotlight back on our hosts! In these last two episodes - and at the behest of our guests - each Matt is taking a turn sharing their own history as a horror fan. In Part 2, Matt Monagle opens up about his myriad childhood fears, his love of Irish horror, and how his upbringing in Juneau, Alaska, made him the man (and horror fan) he is today.
CF28: The Matt Donato Origin Story
And now, for something completely different! At the request of our listeners, the Matts are digging into one another's past to give y'all the full story behind our horror journies until this point. Up first? It's Matt Donato chatting about his childhood horror aversion, his vendetta against Chucky, and the switch that eventually flipped. I hope he at least makes a little more sense, now?
CF27: The Devil Lives Here (w/ Tyler MacIntyre)
Beware the Honey Baron! In this very special episode of Certified Forgotten, Matthew Monagle and Matt Donato are joined by writer-director Tyler MacIntyre (Patchwork, Tragedy Girls) to discuss the standout Brazilian horror film The Devil Lives Here.
CF26: Shock 'Em Dead (w/ Breanna Whipple)
Feeling like you would sell your soul for a good rock 'n roll slasher? Then look no further than 1991's Shock 'Em Dead. In this episode of Certified Forgotten, Matthew Monagle and Matt Donato are joined by horror journalist Breanna Whipple to discuss the beautiful marriage of rock and horror.
CF25: Webcast (w/ Mary Beth McAndrews)
Think you've seen everything found footage has to offer? Think again. In this week's episode of the Certified Forgotten podcast, Matthew Monagle and Matt Donato are joined by horror scholar Mary Beth McAndrews to discuss Paul McGhie's brilliant found footage/folk horror mashup 'Webcast.'
CF 24: Cast a Deadly Spell (w/ Jerry Smith)
Remember what life was like back in the days of direct-to-cable HBO originals? That's the question behind this week's film, Martin Campbell's Cast a Deadly Spell. Matthew Monagle and Matt Donato are joined by horror journalist and composer Jerry Smith to discuss how the film brings together the best of fantasy and film noir.

Not a horror fan. Still love it.
Great entertainment and a bit of an education for those who aren’t versed in the horror genre. I’m a regular listener and I highly recommend!
Not Your Average Podcast
We’ve all heard that joke about a gaggle of two or more white guys being called a “podcast”. That might still ring true for The Matts™, but what they’ve created here is something really special. Not only do they have a unique concept that features the undersought gems of genre, they also use their platform to bring in diverse voices and perspectives that differ from their own backgrounds and experiences.
The boys might typically have polar opposite opinions when it comes to film, but they share a deep love for horror. That love shows in their podcast. Plus, their contrasts make for some solid laughs.
Perfect Idea for a Podcast
Love the concept. Horror is a genre that puts out so many movies that it’s almost impossible to see them all (unless you’re Matt Donato). This is a great dive into obscure, under appreciated horror. The hosts are great, the guest are great, and the movies they cover are always unique. This is a journey I want to be on for the long haul.
