BONUS EP - Halloween Picks with Kat Ellinger
While recording our upcoming episode with guest Kat Ellinger, the team decided to break down their top 3 picks to watch this Halloween season!
A group of co-worker/friends have a good time talking about their latest releaseas. One of the most consistently funny and entertaining podcasts I listen to. I would love to hear some episodes that talk about the behind the scenes and technical efforts that go into some of these releases. Keep it up!
Info packed entertainment
Love the peek behind one of the great boutique labels. Always enjoy the extra info and dang it if you don’t usually sell me on something I was iffy on.
Would love the bonus episodes mentioned and will come out as a mst3k fan I agree it introduced a lot of things I wouldn’t know about and likely broadened my pallet so now I am here…
One of My Favorites
The Severin Podcast is always a great listen, particularly as a look into the inner workings of a “boutique” physical media label. It’s always awesome to hear about what goes into these fantastic releases.
The film discussions are great as well, and they’ve certainly sold me on a few discs I never would have purchased otherwise.
Andrew is an amazing host, and I’d absolutely love to hear him take a deep dive into the granular details regarding 2K vs 4K scanning and any other technical aspects of the restoration/release process.
