or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Bomb No. 20


This transmission was recorded 20 years ago on a spaceship blasting through the cosmos and only recently found its way to Earth. It is the private audio diary of two podcasters known as Beardo and Crawdaddy – two intergalactic podcasters with one mission: seek out and discuss every single film in director John Carpenter’s canon. This entry is entitled: “Dark Star,” and appears to be a conversation of the director’s earliest know piece of feature-length filmmaking.

The Dudes critique Carpenter’s cosmic horror flick In The Mouth of Madness!  Does the trio get turnt over Carpenter’s insane spectacle? Is the final film in the “Apocalypse Trilogy” a Lovecraftian let-down? Does it even matter what we thought because none of us actually exist and reality is a cruel illusion and we’re all just tiny mites on Cthulhu’s tentacled big toe…find out! *PLUS* Chris continues The Summer of Sours with a crazy complex ale that will either seduce your senses or drive your taste buds completely cuckoo.

The Dudes descend to the seventh layer of the cinema to review Prince of Darkness! Is the second film in John Carpenter’s “Apocalypse Trilogy” a heck of a good time – or does it deserve to stay buried in the bowels of movie hell (a.k.a. the $5 bin at Walmart)? *PLUS* Chris picks up a sour blonde…we’re talking about beer, BTW.

or: Can I Borrow Your Flamethrower?


To celebrate the launch of our new limited series, The Carpenter Shop, we’re re-broadcasting our special Halloween 2016 review of John Carpenter’s The Thing. Do The Dudes see the humanity in this film, or is it as cold and alien as a creepy crawly head-spider? Grab a flamethrower and handful of dynamite, because there’s a 75% chance at least one of us has been infected by the intruder organism!
