It is with no small measure of bewilderment and surprise that I have to announce the sudden end of the Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine podcast.
Due to frankly bizarre circumstances on the back end (which yours truly doesn’t even get, so don’t bother to ask…), our planned reboot will sadly consist of the revisitation of the James Bond series (where we reassess and touch on entries we hadn’t the first time around) and, I’m glad to say, the late great Klaus Kinski (a show I’d been pushing to do since the first week of the podcast).
If there are other podcasters (actual or prospective) with a background in and love for cult cinema, television and to a lesser extent music interested in joining the show as cohost, we had planned on doing shows relating to Eddie Constantine, 60’s and 70’s spy television (UK and US), the films of Ken Russell and another anime show (focusing on more infamous and “guy oriented” shows of the 80’s and early 90’s) among others.
If interested, feel free to contact me here at the page, maybe we can keep the show going that way. If not, best laid plans and all that…
Regardless, it’s been a good run, with some amusing, informative and comprehensive shows on such directors, genres and movements as:
Italian sleaze and lesser cult directors (Lenzi, Mattei, Polselli, Bianchi, etc.),
Italian crime (poliziotteschi),
Lamberto Bava and Michele Soavi,
70’s-90’s anime and hentai,
Jess Franco (in three parts, no less!),
Amando de Ossorio and the Blind Dead films,
Other Spanish horror directors and notable films,
Coffin Joe, Isabel Sarli and Emilio Veiyera,
El Santo and lucha libre films,
British “slap & tickle” sexploitation comedies,
Pete Walker & Norman Warren,
British cult television,
The Avengers TV series,
James Bond (twice…the latter in two parts!),
Eurocine, Jean Rollin and French film,
Edgar Wallace krimi,
Shaw Brothers kung fu films,
Nikkatsu sun tribe, noir and borderless action,
Full Moon Pictures and Dave DeCoteau,
Dan Curtis and Richard Matheson’s great TV movies and films of the 70’s,
even a tribute show to David Bowie, 2 members of the Jefferson Airplane and all the folks who’d passed early in 2016 (a list that sadly increased exponentially since).
Nearly 50 shows, all available for download or streaming at your convenience, via blogtalk radio or iTunes.
Pending any new cohosts or changes down the road, this will sadly be the end of the road…but we had one hell of a run, didn’t we? More laughs and broad based, in depth knowledge than you’re likely to get out of a dozen similar podcasts.
Here’s to my former cohost, Mr. Louis Paul, a fount of cult film and television knowledge and a true raconteur – all the best, and hope to hear more from you in the near future, whether privately or in podcasting.
Hats off to ya, brother.
