EP080: TV Talkin’ with CASTLE of HORROR Podcast’s Jason Henderson

Jason Henderson of Castle of Horror/ Castle Talk Podcast invites Anthony Rotolo of TV TERROR podcast to discuss the Movie-of-the-Week golden age, podcasting, and more. We range and rove the hidden valley of programming past, a fertile land once inhabited by giants. They’re gone, but their stories live on. You’ll hear tell of scary hippies, zuni fetish dolls, and things that lurk in dark shadows and collective memory, and how oral tradition continues through the art and craft of podcasting. LISTEN IN…Special thanks to Jason for allowing me to feature this recording as an installment of TV TERROR.
