  1. Useless rings, forgotten plot points, and unseen Disney characters are just a few ingredients of this flaptastic edition of List and Shout! This time, Pandy and Christian conjure up their favorite good and wicked witches and compile the cruelest curses ever cast. [ 1:39:45 || 50.9 MB ]


  2. The Brothers Wilson wind back the years with their very first face-to-face recording of Hey, an Actor! as though they were recording For Your Ears Only without Adham Fisher! Denzel Washington is the featured subject, and Ian and Pandy quip their way through urban crime drama Training Day, revenge film Man on Fire, and his titular role in Malcolm X. Along the way, our hosts dip their toes into Ebonics and some risqué impressions ranging from Bill Cosby and amateur actor Nelson Mandela to Bob Dylan, Al Pacino, and Strong Bad. Ian is also subjected to multiple Oscar quizzes by Pandy, whilst The Orgs and Donovan Morgan Grant raise the bar of HAA! feedback. [ 2:42:08 || 78.2 MB ]


  3. It's women in peril / women in captivity week on Dread media. First up, the softcore housewife porn of 50 Shades of Grey meets Eli Roth in Desmond and Duane's review of Deadly Virtues: Love.Honour.Obey. Then Desmond goes solo on two Jess Franco women-in-prison films: Blue Undergrounds three-disc unrated director's cut of 99 Women, and Full Moon Entertainment's Women in Cellblock 9. Finally, Desmond reviews a comic book, this time an aging actress's emptiness at her lack of fame is filled with something sinister in the Image Comics release Glitterbomb: Red Carpet. Of course, there are songs: "Pretty Tied Up" by Guns N' Roses, "Pain of Pleasure / Virtues of Vice" by Vio-Lence, "Island of Domination" by Judas Priest, "Fuck You (I'm Famous)" by Shooter Jennings, and "The Prisoner" by Suicidal Tendencies.

  4. Get a lottery ticket and keep an eye out for lightning because the Disciples of Apocalypse / Los Boricuas feud may have generated the most genuinely entertaining part of the week. In addition, we finally resolve the Tag Title situation with Owen Hart and British Bulldog taking on Steve Austin and a partner of his choosing. Will it be Shawn Michaels, Ken Shamrock, Sycho Sid, the debuting Patriot, Mankind, or somebody else entirely? [ 2:29:49 || 70.2 MB ]


  5. Ian and Dave bring their coverage of Dark Season to a close. In the second three-part story, the mysterious Miss Pendragon leads an archaeological dig on the school grounds which Marcie, Thomas, and Reet soon discover is really a plot to unearth an abandoned World War II computer project called The Behemoth. When The Behemoth awakens, Marcie finds herself in a final confrontation with Mr. Eldritch with the fate of the world at stake. They look over the show as a whole, pick their series MVPs, and Statistician Ian reveals the next show to be covered and his double life in the UFC. [ 1:52:56 || 44.2 MB ]


  6. In a bit of catchup, We're Hep to It reacts to the Image announcements from ECCC, talk a lot about video games (including Fallout: New Vegas, Mass Effect Andromeda, and Persona 5), a bit of music, some Atomic Blonde, the wonderfulness of Mayday, and the not so wonderfulness of America (Chavez). [ 1:51:10 || 56.5 MB ]


  7. This week, Desmond and Duane highlight two under-appreciated horror gems form the early 1980s. First up, a farmer needs a special ingredient for his roadside fritters in Motel Hell. Then, a man works through his issues with the opposite sex in Pieces. Songs: "Lord, Don't Let Me Die in a Cheap Motel" by Banjo & Sullivan, "Motel Hell" and "1000 Cries Has the Night" by The Browns, and "Hell's Motel" by MD.45. [ 1:06:58 || 32.4 MB ]


  8. Whether you know him as the dead Robin or The Red Hood, Jason Todd's impact on Batman lore will forever be felt. His murder helped shape Batman into the dark, brooding knight we still see today, while his resurrection opened old wounds. Today, we take a look at the death and life of Jason Todd! First, Dan and Mike discuss A Death in the Family, A Lonely Place of Dying, and Under the Hood. Then James returns as he and Mike breakdown the animated feature Batman: Under the Red Hood! [ 3:24:49 || 100.0 MB ]


  9. 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 ]


  10. 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 ]


  11. 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 ]


  12. 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.

  13. 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 ]


  14. 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 ]


  15. 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 ]


  16. 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. (Note: Not recommended for Trump supporters or Brexiteers.) [ 1:39:50 || 49.9 MB ]


  17. 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 ]


  18. 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. [ 2:18:55 || 70.2 MB ]


  19. 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. [ 48:55 || 23.7 MB ]


  20. 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 ]
