    Introducing: The Lost Drive-In



    Podcast Description:
    The ‘Lost Drive-In’ is the latest podcast from LSG Media and unlike anything you’ve heard in movie podcasting. Science fiction. Horror. Action schlock. Cult and B-movies. Every week Matthew and Dean watch a genre film and discuss it in a raw, honest, and often hilarious way. Their uncensored conversational style is less stuffy criticism, and more joking with your profane pals. You will howl with laughter and be occasionally shocked by a ridiculous statement or maybe even an unexpected insight. New episodes drop Mondays.

Herr Larsen ,

Not very informative, but fun.

Needs more F bombs and gay jokes.

Dudefukya ,

Too far

I love this podcast and was I fine with the controversial statements until that Weinstein joke in the Good Will Hunting podcast. It doesn’t matter if great films came out of the company if it was at the expense of women’s comfort and involved sexual assault. Those were gross comments. I know this podcast is over and done with but just a warning for others.

Noah2428 ,

Fantastic Show!

Great Show. Lotta’ laughs and interesting dialogues.

Keep it up gang and thank you very much!
