Welcome to the Grindbin, a podcast where your hosts Mike Wood and Chris Mann dig through the exploitation films and grindhouse cinema of the 1970's and 1980's. Join us on our journey to explore these forgetting film classics of decades past and breathe new life into the movies that time forgot.
258 - Hi-Riders (1978)
If you enjoy a Grindbin episode that goes completely off the track, you'll LOVE this one. More of an experience than an episode, Hi-Riders took two recording sessions, multiple guests, and hours of editing to bring you one of the most insane episodes of the Grindbin ever produced. Also... we talk about a movie.
257 - Evils of the Night (1985)
Why are Catwoman, Ginger from Gilligans Island, and John Carradine in a softcore slasher movie from the 1980s? We have no idea but we are SO glad we watched this.

MINI: Andy Rooney Part 3
Major life changes have prevented Mike from editing a main feed episode this week. Please enjoy this epic mini bin from our Patreon feed in the meantime.
256 - Santo and Blue Demon vs. the Monsters (1970)
The Patreon Poll winner for May, Santo and Blue Demon vs. the Monsters (1970) finally brings a Santo movie to the Grindbin! What an incredible movie filled with third-rate monsters, make out Santo masks, and lots and lots of Santo reading newspapers... what more could you ask for!
255 - Massacre at Central High (1976)
Massacre at Central High is an amazing exploitation film from the 1970's. An allegory for the rise of fascism under the facade of a high school movie... what more could you ask for?! Thanks to Gman from the Patreon for his pick.
254 - Chopper Chicks in Zombietown (1989)
Bobby returns to the Grindbin and joins Candice, Charlie, and Mike to discuss a Troma "classic" featuring a younger Billy Bob Thornton. Thanks to our Patreon member Kady for the pick!
The Best Reviewing some of the Worst
I randomly stumbled upon these fellas while looking for some new podcasts that reviewed some horror or exploitation films. I was pleasantly surprised to find that these two guys Mike and Chris. They are pretty dang hilarious and knowledgeable of some classics films and the banter is gold. Don’t listen to the bad reviews and give these two guys a chance, its worth your time if you got a pension for exploitation films or just bad movies in general. The is my first review for them and I have been listening for a few years now. Two movies I have not seen them review yet which would be awesome are 1. A Smell of Honey a Swallow of Brine 2. They Call Me Bruce. The first one is one of my personal favorites and has some of the funniest lines and scenes from the era of 1960’s exploitation. The second is just a bit silly and not that great but I would love to hear them talk about both either way.
My favorite white dudes
The Grindbin Podcast first started as a show that I simply found absolutely hilarious and entertaining. About four years later and this podcast is a significant part of my life. I can't tell if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but who cares. From it's beginnings with Mike Wood and Chris Mann, to the guy Hughes, then to Bobby Batson who gave the show new life (yet isn't featured on the logo, what's up with that?); the show has been consistently hilarious for so long. These son of a guns actually have allowed me to be on the show myself, several times, and I still don't know why, but I truly appreciate it. Even YOU! The dumbass that has read this far down this review, could be on the show! WHITE FIRE!!!
I Came for the Vans, I Stayed Because I Can’t Leave
“What? A podcast about 70’s exploitation and Grindhouse!? This is fantastic.”- my first thoughts when I discovered the Grindbin. It has been months since I’ve seen my family and friends. I’m locked in a room listening and looking forward to each new episode on Tuesday. Each episode assaults the senses. Should I be shocked? No, because it’s hilarious.
