Episode 57: The Movies We Loved in 2016 + More

16299404_1189815407733908_1562384807205676648_n

The year that passed was a difficult one for our podcast. Never before have we experienced so many challenges in the form of personal business interfering with our plans, laptops that got stolen and episodes that were recorded, only to find out that the audio was unacceptable. We hope for better circumstances in this new year – perhaps we shouldn’t discuss horror movies anymore, that might help lift the curse – and apologize to listeners who have been affected by our hiatus (do they exist?).

We also apologize for the somewhat echo-y audio in this episode, which is the result of some new recording software and hardware we’re using. It should get better next time around.

As a tradition for  the first episode of the year, we discuss our favorite movies that we saw last year, which weren’t released in the last two years. It hasn’t been a very prolific year for watching old movies for any of us, but we still managed to put together some interesting lists. In addition, we talk about the movies we anticipate in 2017. Of course, we also included our favorite songs of 2016 in the episode. Enjoy!

Episode 56: Cult Horror Movies

14611081_1105879096127540_8980095361735976117_n

Once again, we managed to get a horror movie episode of this podcast cursed – from broken and stolen laptops to WiFi that broke down, we experienced a number of scheduling errors and thus didn’t quite get this out before Hallowe’en. But this way, you can continue listening to people talking about scary movies this November! We are joined by special guest Jessica Manzo from www.frenchtoastsunday.com as well and would like to thank her for that 🙂

PS: We deeply apologize for the background noise in this episode, we are not quite sure where it came from, but some of us had to record from our phones so that might be the issue. There are also no songs this time around.

Structure:
00:00 – 02:00 – Chick chatter & Introductions
02:00 – 10:38 – Guest questionnaire
10:38 – 39:57- The chicks and Jess discuss The Evil Dead, Videodrome and Suspiria
39:57 – 47:26 – Plugs and Goodbyes
