SHRIMP NIGHT! 023 | ROS FRASER & MICHAEL RIDGAWAY!
Bob has a delightful chat with the two indelible hosts of Baltimore's longest running cult movie screening event, Mondo Baltimore! Ros and Michael have been the "faces" of Mondo for around four years now, including the online-version during the covid years. Even though Bob has been a member for over a decade, he asks them to point out all that is great about Mondo and why you should go (if you get the chance.) Also, everyone makes a list of their "Top 5 Movies Where Someone Gets Frozen."

SHRIMP NIGHT! 021 | CHET PROGRAM AND THE BACKROW BASTARDS!
Bob once again uses Shrimp Night! to expose his forgotten internet-radio failures, this time focusing on two "podcasts that never were" with two of his best friends, Huey Hesson and Mike Stettes! Backrow Bastards was a DVD commentary podcast hosted by Bob and Mike, around five unreleased episodes existed (they think.) The Chet Program Program with Wet and Chet was Bob and Huey's attempt to try and make a whole show off a very weird name, it lasted one episode, which was released to the public and then promptly abandoned! The guys walk down their personal memory lane of posting content on the internet since the 2000s, celebrating the few things that worked and cracking up over the litany of things that absolutely did not.Listen to Disco Spy by Hestus (a song made by Huey and Mike) HERE!
SHRIMP NIGHT! 020 | BRANDON HARDESTY!
Bob has a grand old time laughing it up with his good buddy Brandon Hardesty! Brandon is a super talented writer and actor who snowballed to fame in the early days of YouTube. His videos led to appearances on Jimmy Kimmel and David Letterman, acting in movies with the likes of William H. Macy, Nick Swardson and The Scorpion King and portraying the live-action version of Eric Cartman on South Park! Somehow years later he ended up in one of Bob's short films, and thus their friendship was forged in fire! Oh also they talk about their Top 10 Favorite Parenting Movies.Check out Brandon's original Youtube Channel HERE!Watch Brandon in Bob's short Timecrowave HERE!Enjoy Brandon's Essay videos on THE BACK FOCUS!
SHRIMP NIGHT! 019 | NOW SLAYING!
Once again Bob wields the nebulous format of SHRIMP NIGHT! to placate his "podcasting midlife crisis." Years ago Sarah Gorman, Becky Hackerman, Mike Walls and Bob were the co-hosts of a horror movie podcast that only lasted a handful of episodes. The podcast was called NOW SLAYING, it ended pretty quick. Becky and Sarah join Bob to discuss memories, why it stopped so abruptly and to relive the old glory days by reviewing the water-logged, found-footage horror film THE DEEP HOUSE!Check out Becky's band INFINITE PIZZA on BANDCAMP and FACEBOOK!Watch this episode with video HERE!
All the writer’s tools you’d need!
Jamie, Jimmy and Bob look at some of the finest in cheeseburger cinema. Using these popular films To brake down what tropes and tools writers can use to hone their craft and create scripts that will appeal to a wide audience. While their reviews are instructive the trio are also widely entertaining and have great camaraderie with one another bonding over their shared blockbuster love.
Writers Blockbusters is an incredibly entertaining and informative podcast, a deep dive into the magic behind how movies are written. I am not a screenwriter or moviemaker by any stretch of the imagination, but I have been enriched by learning the psychology behind how these stories are crafted and the way it affects us as the viewer. Equally technical and soul searching, the hosts aren’t shy to share their life experiences and I appreciate it deeply. Now, let’s take a look at that box office!
Be Still My Movie Loving Heart
Writers/Blockbuster is one of my favorite movie podcasts to listen to. Bob, Jamie, and Jimmy all give really interesting insight not just into the world of screenwriting but also storytelling in general. They’re all really funny to listen to and make you feel like you’re apart of their movie appreciation club. To say I missed them during quarantine would be an understatement. Keep doing what you’re doing guys!
