Radicast 198X - 004 - Xtro

Radicast 198X Xtro review

Hell yeah! We feel that this is the episode where we hit our podcasting stride. Definitely the best one yet. We discuss Xtro, a bizarre 1982 British sci-fi horror movie made in the wake of E.T.'s mega success, in which we learn that some extraterrestrials aren't friendly.

Other media we briefly talk about this episode:

E.T. [1982], The Pod People [1983], Joey/Making Contact [1985], The Neverending Story [1984], The Karate Kid [1984],
Quest For Fire [1981], Conan the Destroyer [1984], Starman [1984], Resident Evil (Dual Shock Ver.) [1998], 
The Deadly Spawn [1983], Sorceress [1982]

Radicast 198X Episodes 2 & 3: Vision Quest & Police Story

Radicast 198X Police Story & Vision Quest Review

In our third podcast episode, we discuss Police Story, a 1985 kung fu action comedy co-written, directed by, and starring Jackie Chan.

You should totally listen to it and learn all about our “Jackie Chan experience.”

Other movies or shows we briefly talk about in episode 3: Jackie Chan Adventures [2000-2005], Rumble in the Bronx [1995], City Hunter [1993], Project A-ko [1986], X-Men: Evolution [2000-2003], First Blood [1982]

You might be wondering what happened to episode 2. Well, it’s right here, under this rug, because we sorta fucked up. The program we used to record it detected the webcam we had plugged in (but weren’t using), and, because the program is a total dick, it decided to use the webcam’s shitty microphone instead of the good microphone that we were actually talking into. So the audio quality isn't the best, but we didn’t realize our goof until I went to edit it. Lesson learned.

We decided it just wouldn't be the same if we were to completely re-record the episode. Besides, it’s not unlistenable, it’s just not up to the high standards we strive for.

Check it out, and if you don’t mind the sub-par audio, you get to hear us discuss a rather obscure 1985 teen movie called Vision Quest.

We also talk a bit about ‘80s teen movies in general.

Other movies we briefly talk about in episode 2: Sixteen Candles [1984], Weird Science [1985], Some Kind of Wonderful [1987], Gotcha! [1985], After Hours [1985], Rocky IV [1985], The Quest [1986]

Radicast 198X Episode 1 - Death Wish 3

That's right, we've jumped on board the podcast bandwagon. Or, actually, we're riding our skateboards while holding on to the back of the bandwagon, Marty McFly style, because that's way cooler than sitting in some fucking crowded bandwagon.

For the past few years, Jessica and I have almost exclusively consumed media from the '80s (partially for our entertainment, and partially as research for the comic). After every movie or show that we watch, I read up about it and then Jessica and I tend to discuss it and give our ratings (out of five). So we figured we might as well turn those discussions into a short podcast (most episodes run about 30 minutes).

The very first trial episode we recorded was actually after we saw the terrible 1984 Supergirl movie. However, we recorded it really late so Jessica was mega tired and it showed in the recording. We consider that episode zero, and instead of releasing it publicly, Jessica made it available to her patrons as a little bonus.

For our first "official" episode, we discuss the awesomely terrible 1985 movie Death Wish 3.

Other movies we briefly talk about in this episode: Death Wish [1974], Death Wish II [1982], Rocky [1976], Rocky II [1979], Girls Just Wanna Have Fun [1985], Rambo: First Blood Part II [1985], Assault on Precinct 13 [1976]

We've already recorded three more episodes, and we'll put those out as I edit them.
