    Then Is Now Episode 95 - The Last Possession - Cast & Creators

    Then Is Now Episode 95 - The Last Possession - Cast & Creators

    Flying solo again, I had the good fortune of interviewing the cast and creators of a new, independent horror film called The Last Possession! Director, Dan Riddle; Writer, Greg Shouse; Alissa Riddle, the DA; Stephen Brodie who plays Kent; Cassie Shea Watson who plays Stephanie; and Patricia Rae who plays Granny Inez! We had a fun and insightful conversation about the making of this scary feature. It's free on Tubi right now, and I highly recommend that you check out the film and then come back for some great behind the scenes discussion!

True fan

I love hearing details about all kinds of retro entertainment from time periods when there was more variety and freedom for creators. The hosts of this podcast are true fans, you can tell. They have a legitimate love for the topics they cover, and there are always some tidbits about certain scripts or actors or directors that I didn’t know! I look forward to each episode.

Mark of JC ,

New listener from North Jersey

I really look forward to hearing about movies and television shows that I greatly enjoy while learning about new gems that I’ve never heard of before. The show is well planned and executed.

Granite Gary ,

Love it!

My kids and I listen to this show! I love hearing about the stuff I grew up with and sharing it with them. It's really opened their eyes, as the show says, "to all the cool stuff they missed out on"! Keep up the great work!
