Helter Skelter!

Love this podcast. Episode suggestion...the 1976 Helter Skelter TV movie.
It’s got everything, and was a Lorimar Production for CBS. Doesn’t get more 70s than that.

Excellent Podcast

I've listened to every episode at least three times -- that's how much I love this podcast! Sam Pancake is not only hilarious and astute, as are his guests, but he also does a great job of making these movies entertaining even if the listener has never seen them. I was so intrigued by Sam's and Alec Mapa's take on "Haunts of the Very Rich" that I watched it myself and of course they got it exactly right. I can't say enough about this podcast and how much I love it. Looking forward to Season 3!!

Gay latchkey kid of a certain age HEAVEN

Sam Pancake and his guests capture the exact feeling of sitting on itchy shag carpet in the den watching these movies. They revere these very special performances with love and perfect humor and all in a precise mid-atlantic accent.
