    Speakeasily Vs. The ‘80s: Return of the Living Dead (1985)

    Speakeasily Vs. The ‘80s: Return of the Living Dead (1985)

    Speakeasily Vs. The ‘80s welcomes Joe Donohoe (writer, nurse, former taxi driver, and publisher of Specious Species magazine) for a BRAINZ-fueled discussion of Dan O’Bannon’s game-changing zombie punk hit, Return of the Living Dead. With its goth punk soundtrack that’s all killer no filler and a tomb-strippin’ Linnea Quigley, this is a modern horror classic we dig to no end. Where Rasputin’s preserved member, Doctor Manhattan’s bouncing dong, and Bananabots fit in, is up to you to decide.

It’s Not The Quantity...

...It’s the QUALITY that matters.

There are thousands of comedy podcasts where a few loud people just yak - yak - yak about weird topics/ they grind out a couple hundred episodes and have 3k+ 5-star reviews and they just absolutely BLOW. Five minutes in and you feel exhausted and need an Advil...

But “SpeakEasily Hour Minute Podcast” is way different - it’s very surreal in the way it uses sound effects, background sounds, and its fictional characters.
I took to it in a way that no other FM Radio “Morning Zoo Gang” comedy podcast could ever hope to do.

Funny and thought provoking

Absolutely hilarious and amazing voice acting. Really makes you think about what would happen if once dead writers and fictional characters came back to life today. I'll be up all night pondering this now. I can't wait for the second episode! What is going to happen to that pig??!
