And here I am, talking about Ed Wood on Monster Kid Radio

I recently appeared on Monster Kid Radio to discuss Ed Wood Wednesdays.

Well, folks, I've returned (albeit temporarily) to the medium of podcasting this week. This entire blog started as a spinoff of a podcast, specifically Derek M. Koch's late, lamented Mail Order Zombie. That series signed off in April 2013, and Derek has moved on to a great new show called Monster Kid Radio. While MOZ focused almost exclusively on zombie movies (mainly the direct-to-video variety), MKR is a more general-purpose show which tends to stick to the low-budget sci-fi and horror films of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Past topics on Monster Kid Radio have included the King Kong and Godzilla movie series, plus the careers of actors like Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, and the Mexican wrestler known as El Santo. This week, Derek was gracious enough to have me as a guest on his new series, and he and I discussed the career of Edward D. Wood, Jr. and my ongoing "Ed Wood Wednesdays" project.

  • You can listen to part one of the interview here. Topics include Orgy of the Dead, Night of the Ghouls, and Tim Burton's Ed Wood.  
  • Here's part two. This time, Derek and I discussed some Ed Wood movies which might appeal to Monster Kid Radio listeners. Films include The Bride and the Beast, Necromania, Venus Flytrap, and The Astounding She-Monster.
  • And here's part three. This is an informal "warm-up" conversation Derek and I had before the interview.

Big thanks to Derek M. Koch for letting me appear on his show and talk about this project!
