Finally, the Damn Dirty Geeks can reveal our newest podcast feature: Uncle Ira's Basement, a series of mini-podcast episodes -- oh, you might call them Seed Pods -- in which the Geeks discuss movies, TV and genre topics we love, hate or are indifferent to in short 10-minute shows.
In this debut Uncle Ira's Basement episode, resident DDG hosts Frank Dietz and Frank Woodward revisit the 1970 cult horror film TROG, directed by Hammer horror veteran Freddie Francis, starring Joan Crawford and Michael Gough.
Watch for more new installments of Uncle Ira's Basement coming soon, and be sure to subscribe to the Damn Dirty Geeks on iTunes. Please leave your review of our show to share with other genre entertainment fans!
Something for everyone, a comedy episode tonight! Damn Dirty Geeks -- Frank Dietz, Trish Geiger, Jack Bennett and Scott Weitz -- welcome the prolific comedy actors Brian Howe and Alison Martin, fresh off launching their hilarious project The Audio Adventurebook of Big Dan Frater Volume 1.
The Geeks discuss our collective origins, influences and favorites as comedy fans, plus Alison and Brian's work on the films of Larry Blamire including THE LOST SKELETON RETURNS AGAIN and DARK AND STORMY NIGHT, along with Frank and Trish's mockumentary A ZOMBIE NEXT DOOR.
Now, from the minds of Blamire and Howe comes the comic audio adventures of Big Dan Frater (Brian Howe) and his cohorts Dutch 'the Swede' Anacrombie (Dan Conroy) and Millie Healey (Alison Martin), as this trio of hapless heroes tackle terrors and rescue the citizens of New Garden Hope City! If you enjoy the comedy of Monty Python, Steve Martin, Edgar Wright films and more, you'll dig this comedy-centric episode with the Damn Dirty Geeks.
With our talented producer/audio guru Justin Cruse away on another project for this recording, you may experience moments of audio level fluctuation on this episode. Just bump up the volume a bit and enjoy!
In our special podcast celebrating the first PLANET OF THE APES DAY, comedian and lifelong APES movie fan Dana Gould joins Frank, Jack, Trish and Scott to discuss the entertainment legacy and personal connections to the entire APES franchise, including the new generation of films RISE and DAWN. In short, the Damn Dirty Geeks GO APE at last!
Our podcast primates evaluate the evolution of the classic APES films, including the importance of Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall in the series, and how the newer films' blend of actors and CG have changed the future of the franchise.
Collectively, we also link specific and fond memories of our first time seeing the APES films, and note how Taylor's mysterious leap into the far future influenced our lives as fans, professionals and Damn Dirty Geeks, of course.
These are the films that inspired the very name of our podcast, so be sure to subscribe to us in iTunes and leave your reviews of this special episode along with our entire collection of episodes.
