It occurred to me that I forgot to post a link to my episode of “This is Rad” with Kyle Clark and Matthew Burnside that dropped Wednesday of last week. So here it is!

A few thoughts on the experience:

-Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles was not what I was expecting in kind of a glorious way. Instead of a packed to the gills comic shop, like I had pictured, Meltdown struck me more as a creative space with spots for local art and a small show room in the back as seen on TV in a bunch of places. I’m sorry I didn’t get to see a show there because I bet it would be great.

-The way the show works is people pick something they are passionate about to discuss for, basically, as long as they want to. I had sent him a few ideas and he landed on Vincent Price immediately. I’ve been a fan of b-movies for years and always found Vincent Price to be a singular screen presence and the most interesting of his horror movie brethren. I wish I’d said anything as articulate during the podcast.

-Still being relatively new to podcasting (give The Atomic Weight of Cheese a listen! We have fun) it takes me a bit to get into it. As you can hear. I’m hoping to get better about it in the future.

-That being said it’s so much fun when you meet someone who likes to talk that you have a lot in common with and that was me with both the hosts of this show. Of the two and a half hours we recorded, we hung out for easily another hour before and after the recording and I had a great time.

-If you’re interested in the FantasticLand stuff, it’s toward the last third of the podcast. I cannot thank Kyle Clark enough for his championing of FantasticLand and for inviting me on.
