We are Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine, your essential guide to all things wild and wonderful in the world of cult entertainment!
Drop in for a spell, and join hosts “Doc” Savage (of the Third Eye Cinema podcast and website, the At Eye Level Podcast and at least one further, more specialized podcast venture) and Louis Paul (author of 5 cult film related books for McFarland and Bertler-Lieber Verlag, cohost of creepshowradio’s Taste of Fear podcast and contributor to numerous cult film fanzine publications such as European Trash Cinema and his own Blood Times) as we dig deep into the rich vein of cult cinema, music and television, right here on Weird Scenes inside the Goldmine!
Join us as we explore classic (and not so classic) films, shows, musicians and literature of the past, with an eye towards what new visions may still arise from the soullessly derivative mire of our modern age.
