    Dan and Mike sit down to talk comics, specifically their experiences getting into the medium, falling out of it, then back in, their first storylines and collected editions, books they could never get into, and so much more. [ 2:15:50 || 68.1 MB ]

    Episode 504
    This week, Dread Media gets topical. First off, Brian Yuzna's 1989 brilliant and gooey satire of the ruling class is never more relevant than it is today in Desmond and Darryll's review of Society. Then, women may often be viewed as sexual playthings by many men, but in Desmond and Duane's review of the Swiss folk horror film Sennentuntschi, we see that they are not to be toyed with. Fun fact about each of today's songs: each track played is the fourth track on its respective album, except for one which is an unreleased cover track. Enjoy: "Control" by Biohazard, "Society" by Pennywise, "Ford Mustang" by Mike Patton, and "The Evil that Men Do" by Iron Maiden. [ 1:10:01 || 33.8 MB ]

    Week 27
    The WWF invades The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth with In Your House: Canadian Stampede from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Widely regarded as one of the greatest PPVs in history, there is no surprise that the show holds up from top to bottom in the eyes of Kellen and Tom. What may surprise many, however, is that one of the hosts posits that the legendary main even of The Hart Foundation v Steve Austin, Ken Shamrock, Goldust, and The Legion of Doom may actually be the worst match on the show. All this, a terrible Truth Commission match on Shotgun, a follow-up Raw is War to start the build to SummerSlam, and much more in this jam-packed episode. [ 4:00:49 || 112.8 MB ]

    Dan and Mike take an in depth look at The Trial of the Incredible Hulk, featuring Street Hawk's Rex Smith as Matt Murdock / Daredevil. Then they dive into the first two episodes of the Daredevil Netflix series, which just might be the best production to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. [ 2:00:02 || 59.4 MB ]

    This week, the jobs are hellish on Dread Media. First off, Adam and Jeff join Desmond to see how an Egyptologist's Take Your Daughter to Work Day goes horribly wrong in Lucio Fulci's Manhattan Baby. Then, if there's a better example of corporations not caring about their employees' welfare, it's probably an example from reality and not the new horror film in Rich the Monster Movie Kid's review of The Belko Experiment. Then Desmond goes solo, outlining how soldiers have to accept orders no matter how lascivious, as two brilliant women are made to go undercover as whores for the SS in Love Camp 7 and a librarian has to take the law into her own hands in The Creeps. Some songs to make your work day better: "Egypt" by Mercyful Fate; "Baby Sequenza 1" Fabio Frizzi; "California Dreamin' (Rock Version)" by Gilberto Cerezo, Tyler Bates, Dave Lombardo, and Rani Sharone; "The Creeps" by The Hellacopters; and "Take this Job and Shove It" by Dead Kennedys.

    Episode 05.06: Year Zero
    Rumors of our demise have been fairly well-reasoned, but after a two-year hiatus Dropped D continues to roll forward with an episode we recorded back in 2015. Look, we've been busy winning championship titles all over the world. Also, Nine Inch Nails' Year Zero is a bad album, and we really didn't want to talk about it. That's why you get stories of Damien's wise uncle, roadside porn, and outdated band names. So, you know, the usual. [ 1:00:39 || 30.7 MB ]

    Episode 502
    Easter's coming, so let's get blasphemous! In true Dread Media fashion, we cover the gamut. First, Duane and Desmond review a modern theatrical horror film where everyone's favorite boy-wizard gets drunk, wakes up with a dead girlfriend, and horns sprout from his head in Horns. Then Rich the Monster Movie Kid takes a look at the ballyhooed classic The Devils. Then, Desmond goes solo on a micro-budget slasher / comedy that happens to be themed around Easter in Easter Sunday. Hey, they can't all adhere to themes. How about I make it up to you with some songs? "Heresy" by Nine Inch Nails, "Devil is a Loser" by Lordi, "Devil's Dance" by Metallica, "Qualm Psunday" by FEASTofFETUS and "Apex Blasphemy" by Cattle Decapitation. [ 1:13:26 || 35.5 MB ]

    Episode 39: Dame Julie Andrews
    It's Dame O'Clock once again, as Hey, an Actor! profiles another English rose in the form of Dame Julie Andrews. With Ian overusing the phrase "one-two punch" and Pandy constantly forgetting the names of actresses the podcast has previously featured, The Brothers Wilson again review three films from their subject's repertoire. The hit 1979 comedy 10 improbably features both Flash Gordon and Will Ackerman, whilst The Princess Diaries paves the way for a future Anne Hathaway episode. And, as expected, the Mary Poppins review devotes an entire 10 minutes to David Tomlinson's finest hour, in addition to cockney accents, Poochie and Brian "Road Dogg" Anderson. All this, plus Pandy's efforts at a 1979 movie quiz, and Ian's video-plus confessions. [ 2:46:04 || 80.1 MB ]

    After playing an extended opening theme and completely failing to deliver a coherent intro, Pandy and Christian rank the five most British and most American characters, along with their favorite fictional figures from neither the UK nor the US.

    After Captain Kirk vanishes into thin air, Spock's command skills are once more put to the test ("The Tholian Web"). Then, seemingly ageless people force Kirk, Spock, Uhura, and Nurse Chapel to humiliate themselves in grotesque ways ("Plato's Stepchildren"). [ 1:17:55 || 37.9 MB ]

    First: Hannah and Jim briefly drop into Mass Effect: Andromeda, Nier: Automata, the end of Divinity III, how Matt Kindt can do all these comics, and briefly reference a current comics thing. And second: What makes a good anime adaptation in live-action? Ghost in the Shell may come the closest, but it still misses the mark in terms of translating the philosophical soul of the original series. Donovan and Harry sit down to discuss the controversial film, going through the number of ways the script works against not only the spirit of the franchise but its own plot, the meticulous recreation of scenes from the 1995 film, and how translations from other media loses the source material.

    Episode 501
    After last week's epic undertaking, Dread Media kicks off the second 501 episodes with a back-to-basics two-review show. First, Desmond and Duane take in the satirical and bizarre Mexican Twilight Zone homage, The Similars (Los Parecidos). Then Devil Dinosaur Jr returns in a Stay Scary of a comic with a title so long, it will definitely make people who judge show-length based on show note-length to think this episode is way longer than it actually is: Neil Gaiman's Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire by Shane Oakley, from Dark Horse Comics. There are, of course, songs: "Twilight Zone" by Night Fever, "The Hair Song" by Black Mountain, "Your Long White Fingers" by The Gothic Archies, and "1000 Mile Stare" by Mutoid Man.

    Over the past 499 episodes, Desmond Reddick has spoken with some interesting guests and cohosts, but this week, to celebrate the 500th episode of Dread Media, he decided to talk to the people who make it all worthwhile: the listeners. Dreadites of three different countries (four if you count a background chime-in) get their voices heard this episode with a wide-ranging variety of topics. Songs played this week: "Answering the Phone" by The Mountain Goats, "Gruesome" by Gruesome, "Get the Fuck Outta Here" by Diemonds, "Can't Stop the Monster Kids" by The Other, "Twin Peaks - Fire Walk with Me" by Fantomas, "For Fuck's Sake" by Nailbomb, "Carry the Coffin" by Ghoultown, "Boss DJ" by Sublime, and "Computer, this Is Not What I..." by Mutation. RIP Bernie Wrightson. [ 3:33:33 || 104.5 MB ]

    Episode 01: ECW Barely Legal
    Damien and Desmond talk wrestling. A lot. They needed a reason to bullshit regularly. Okay, another reason to bullshit regularly. So, why not go through the pay-per-views of ECW, the little wrestling promotion that could? See, Desmond is a lapsed fan whose final days were in the Attitude Era, and Damien is the fount of knowledge. That's the framework. This episode discusses the beginnings of Extreme Championship Wrestling, and, in particular, its first true PPV: 1997's Barely Legal. There's lots of critical talk about the ECW stable. Except New Jack. The producers of this podcast respect and admire Mr. Jack in every way and mean no disrespect in any way. [ 3:05:52 || 89.7 MB ]

    Manbeast v Mantaur: In the real main event this week we have The Clash of the Century as these natural rivals lock horns. On the undercard we have the equally illustrious debuts of both Michael Cole and the latest gang in the wars, Ahmed attempts to cut a promo under the influence of surgical medication, Undertaker goes full on Batman, Paul Bearer calls him a goddamned murderer, we have Pokemon references up to the eyeballs, and Kellen and Tom achieve a freaky psychic link. Trust me, this is a fun one. [ 2:36:53 || 75.4 MB ]

Then, a fresh mockumentary take on vampires and werewolves in Duane and Desmond's review of What We Do in the Shadows. Here are some monster songs: "Loch Ness Monster" by Big Dipper, "Kong at the Gates" by The Misfits, "Vlad the Impaler" by GWAR, and "Our Savage God" by Sleep of Monsters. [ 58:17 || 28.2 MB ]

Then, Rich the Monster Movie Kid reviews The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, and his experience seeing it in theatre with Joe Bob Briggs. There's a soundtrack to all of this, of course: "Living in the Shadows" by Billy Talent, "Almighty Black Talons" by Seven Sisters of Sleep, "No One Lives Forever" by Oingo Boingo, and "Shadow of a Man" by Oysterhead.
