This week, it’s a trip for vegan food at Ground Control (3315 W. Armitage) with peerless author Mike “McBeardo” McPadden (Heavy Metal Movies). Mike’s always been one of my favorite guests; he has a shocking depth of knowledge about horror and metal.
We talk about:
*Heavy Metal Movies. The process of writing the book that almost led to an intervention.
*Must-see old horror: Pieces, Tourist Trap, Dr. Butcher M.D. (Medical Deviant)
*Mike’s new book about teenage sex movies from the VHS era, due out this Fall.
*Mike’s work with Gilbert Gottfried
*Why Kong: Skull Island was awesome
This week’s show is sponsored by Gleason’s Landscape, family owned and operated since 1954.
