EP80: Psycho

It’s late at night and you’re driving down a lonely highway. As your last ounce of strength to fight off sleep is exhausted, you see a neon sign through the rain-splashed windshield. It directs you to a seemingly quaint motel with plenty of vacancies. What a relief! All you want to do is rest… but this could also be your final resting place. What to do? Well, don’t bother with that useless Bible in the nightstand drawer when you can get all of the survival tips you need from Matt and Jason’s commentary on the 1960 Hitchcockian hair-raiser, Psycho. Your handsome hosts don’t set a fancy table, but the kitchen is full of movie facts, Hitchcock’s profile, Jason’s poorly-hidden sex toys, ethical grey areas, oversized ’60s bras, bad hair, taxidermy as sexual metaphor, phone booths, Lemmy, Matt’s Hollywood metal memories, and one suspiciously missing butcher knife. But don’t concern yourself with that. After all, they wouldn’t even harm a fly.

EP79: I Was A Teenage Werewolf

People often put teenagers down. Whether it’s for their music or their fashions or their inexperience with the world around them, teens sure get a lot of flack. On top of all that, they might even have to deal with uncontrollable lycanthropic tendencies and related bloodthirsty demands. When that happens, the only ones to turn to are Matt and Jason as they unleash the savage instincts of 1957’s I Was A Teenage Werewolf. Try not to cry as they inject you with film details, the dread of meeting the parents, Matt’s hatred for whistlers, Jason’s reading glasses sex ploy, teenage hormonal rage, marrying gorillas, booby hatches, Costello Meets Cohen’s Wallet, shaved porn, not-picky blind girls, killing retro TV show brats and other transformative tidbits. Now, really. What’s one life compared to such a podcast?
