New Podcast: Dressing to the Left

Night of the Podwits!Dion and Brian are letting it all hang out this week! Dion’s been reading the classic Fu Manchu mysteries written a century ago by Sax Rohmer (real name: Arthur Henry Ward), and that’s got him and Brian biting into a heavy topic: could ol’ Fu, or other culturally problematic old heroes like Charlie Chan or Mr. Moto, have a place in the entertainment world of today? Find out what the Podwits think, plus the (kinda hilarious) meaning of our cryptic episode title, in this all-new podcast! #PodwitsTailoring

The black member of the Young Allies, whose name completely eluded Brian during this podcast, was Whitewash Jones.

Side Cast: The Zombie Genre

Side-CastsWith the success of their last Halloween themed Side Cast and posting on Saturday Night Movie Sleepovers where J.Blake and Dion Baia recommend some horror films they both feel may have fallen through the cracks or have been overlooked, the boys meet back at the Podwits studios to record a quick cast about the zombie genre. With the record-breaking premiere of Season 5 of The Walking Dead, they chat about some Living Dead films they think be have been forgotten and clutch for fans of the genre. Come take a listen to this speedy, ‘commuter cast‘ the boys did on the fly for another installment of The Podwits Side Cast!

Legendary Horror Director Dario Argento & Iggy Pop Need You!

Dario Picture

Two weeks ago an Indiegogo campaign went live, raising money for Italian horror master Dario Argento’s next film.  Based on E.T.A Hoffman’s short story “The Sandman” the film will star punk rock legend Iggy Pop as a serial killer “who murders his victims with a lethally jagged melon spoon and claims their eyes as trophies.”

A favorite of the Podwits off-shoot site, Saturday Night Movie Sleepovers, Dario Argento is a living legend in the horror genre and has given genre fans such memorable films as DEEP RED (1975), SUSPIRIA (1977) and OPERA (1987).  With this latest project, THE SANDMAN, he is asking his fans to participate; to help secure his artistic freedom and to allow them to truly be a part of something special…with some truly amazing contributor perks.

As the campaign approaches its midway point, the Sandman Team is still far from reaching its goal and can use your help.  If you are a fan of Dario Argento and/or Iggy Pop, or just a film lover, you can show your support following the below hyperlink to the Indiegogo campaign page.

The Podwit Nemesis’s…Nemesises… Nemeses?

The PodwitsThis week’s Podwits Podcast is a battle royale between two titans of talk!  In this corner we have the Sultan of Sage, The King Of K-nowledge, The Scion Of The Cerebellum… BRIAN ZINO!  And in the other corner… The Master of Mediocrity, The Jack Of A Few Trades, The Ran Out Of Alliteration, J. MARCUS!

(applause)

The two go head-to-head this week stretching their minds into legal territory over the incredible case of Red Bull’s defeat!  After slugging it out for a few rounds, it’s time for the two pillars of podcasting to turn their mighty minds towards one of the greatest divides in Podwits history… DOCTOR WHO!

Can J. piss on the parade before Brian makes his case?  Or will Brian return victorious?  Bring a tarp to this one folks, because it’s gonna be messy!

Side Cast: October Horror Recommendations

Side-CastsTo help get the word out about their new Podcast Saturday Night Movie Sleepovers, Dion and J. Blake sit down to recommend 10 horror films for the Halloween season that they feel may be overlooked or forgotten in today’s times. The boys attempt to compile a list of amazing fright films that may not be considered first choice picks, but are a necessity for ANY horror fan. Along with their podcast, the lads have also co-wrote a companion posting over at Saturday Sleepovers, giving another 10 (5 each) that they couldn’t fit into the podcast but felt remise if they didn’t include as well.
