JED Talks to people from the world of TV/FIlm/Music & Entertainment about their careers and what makes them tick.
JED TALKS // to EDUARDO SANCHEZ (THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT)
I’ve been trying to get EDUARDO SANCHEZ on the podcast for about a year and realistically I’ve wanted to speak to him most of my adult life. THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT is not only one of the best horror films ever made, but for me, it’s probably the most influential.
It was a total joy deep-diving into The Blair Witch Project with the guy who made it and it was really interesting to learn its effects on the rest of Ed’s career and Horror as a whole. We find out what Eduardo would have done if he got a chance to make a prequel and his very own sequel!
If you enjoyed the episode, please spread the word and perhaps rate, review and subscribe if you haven’t already done.
You can find Eduardo HERE and you can find me HERE.
JED TALKS // THE HORROR SUMMIT w/ DEAD MEAT, THE BOO CREW, NIGHTMARE ON FILM STREET & KNIGHT LIGHT
This feature-length special is the very first HORROR SUMMIT on JED TALKS. I do a Nick Fury and bring together the Avengers of Horror Podcasts. These are the people whose views are listened to and respected by the Horror community as a whole. Their opinions on the hot topics of Horror reverberate and matter to fans of the genre.
I call upon the talents of Chelsea Rebecca & James A. Janisse from DEAD MEAT, Kimberley Elizabeth & Jonathan DeHaan from NIGHTMARE ON FILM STREET, Trevor & Lauren Shand & Leo D’Antonio from THE BOO CREW and Prince Jackson from KNIGHT LIGHT: A HORROR MOVIE PODCAST. This dream team help me discuss and put to pasture, some of the hottest and most controversial subjects in the Horror world, including ‘Elevated Horror’ and Reboots/Remakes.
We also discuss why everyone dedicated their lives to horror and we end the show on underrated/underseen recommendations (heads up - go watch Guinea Pig 6)! So grab a pen and take notes, because there is a lot to dissect here!
Thanks so much to everyone involved and I’m looking forward to the next Horror Summit so much! If you enjoyed what you heard, subscribe, rate and review & spread the word.
You can follow me on twitter HERE and find me every week on Clubhouse’s Number 1 Horror room CLUBHOUSE OF HORROR where you will see and hear the biggest names in Horror!
JED TALKS // to ALEJANDRO BRUGES (JUAN OF THE DEAD, POOKA LIVES)
On this episode of JED TALKS I speak to ALEJANDRO BRUGES about his career highs and lows; working with Robert Rodriguez, Mick Garris and Eduardo Sanchez.
Apologies for my microphone during this episode, it was faulty so I’ve tried to clean it up as much as possible!
Alejandro is trying to get off social media so I’m not going to provide his links, but you can have mine twice: @jedshepherd and @jedshepherd.
Next week on JED TALKS I hold a HORROR SUMMIT!
JED TALKS // to BRIAN KEENE (THE GHOUL / THE COMPLEX / MARVEL / DC)
On today’s episode I have another incredible and prolific horror author who is at the top of his game, its BRIAN KEENE! We talk about his journey, his process, his mentors (Joe Lansdale / Stephen King), his comic work and movie adaptations!
Brian is one of the loveliest people putting pen to paper so and if you want to dive into his work, he suggests THE COMPLEX and I had so much fun reading THE GHOUL.
You can find Brian at his website briankeene.com and on Twitter.
You can find me on twitter too and if you have CLUBHOUSE, check out CLUBHOUSE OF HORROR every thursday!
JED TALKS // to NEIL MARSHALL (DOG SOLDIERS/THE DESCENT/HELLBOY)
Today I talk to a British director who has made 2 of the top 5 best British Horror movies of the last 30 years. Neil Marshall came straight out of the gate with DOG SOLDIERS (the best werewolf movie since An American Werewolf in London) and followed it up with THE DESCENT which was a universal success story.
One of the few to put British horror on the map, it was an absolute pleasure to talk to him about the above films plus his brand new one The Reckoning (co-written by its star Charlotte Kirk). We also discuss just what happened with HELLBOY (2019) and how Neil got into the business of make believe in the first place.
If you like what you hear, let me know on twitter @jedshepherd and thank you for coming to my Jed Talks!
JED TALKS // to PAUL TREMBLAY (A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS/SURVIVOR SONG)
For the second week in a row I speak to one of my favourite authors on the planet, a man who wrote a book that made me soil my pants for the two nights it took to read it. A man who instilled a fear in me of turning the page, in case the thing my imagination conjured manifests… it’s PAUL TREMBLAY!
We speak (I gush) about his books, potential screen adaptations and his writing process. If you enjoyed this episode as much as I did you can find out more about Paul at his website https://www.paultremblay.net/. You can also catch him on twitter https://twitter.com/paulGtremblay where you will see us continue the convo!
You can catch me here https://twitter.com/Jedshepherd if you want to let me know what you think of the pod (nice things only!) and I’m always happy to chat horror with you guys.
Great conversations and interesting recs
Jed Shepherd has a really fun show going on where he and a slew of guests talk about favorite films and TV through the lens of what's available on streaming. Both the guests and the recommendations vary wildly and there are a lot of great conversations about fun media to consume and some hidden gems out there that are worth seeking out. I'm really jazzed about the format because it reminds me so much of the concept of handshakes flicks, those movies that you will always recommend to folks when first meeting. Very fun listen.
