2x17a "A Fredly Chat"



You say last week’s chat with The Twilight Pwn’s Fred left you wanting? Too short? Not enough delicious Fredness to sate your Fred-centric appetite? Say no more---- herein you’ll find the entire unedited conversation, tongue-clicks and ‘ums’ horrifically intact. It’s raw, sloppy and unpolished, the perfect aural accompaniment for a raw, sloppy and unpolished New Years Eve. Cheers!

2x17 "I'll Be Zone for Christmas"




It’s Christmastime again, so of course we’ve cooked up a special treat for y’all---- two, count ‘em, TWO special guests grace our RSS feed this week: Dr. Reba Wissner talks shop about the music score for the Twilight Zone classic “What You Need” (which we’re covering this week… I probably should’ve mentioned that first), then the irrepressible Fred from The Twilight Pwn returns to lend us some much-needed TZ ‘cast credibility. It’s a heart-warming holiday special for the whole family (assuming they’re all over 18 and aren’t easily offended), so pour yourself a tumbler of your best cherry brandy and prepare to get festive. Oh, we’re also unveiling two new jingles this week, for those keeping track. And hey, make sure you stick around after the credits for a last-minute tribute to Outer Limits composer Dominic Frontiere (1931-2017).

2x16 Dylan Vance Presents "Escape Clause"



Christmas comes a bit early this year as Craig turns the mic over to listener Dylan Vance, who presents his audio drama adaptation of Rod Serling’s “Escape Clause.” It’s his gift to the podcast, which we're thrilled and delighted to share with all of you. Enjoy!

2x15 A Conversation with Steven Jay Rubin



This week author Steven Jay Rubin drops by to discuss his marvelous new book The Twilight Zone Encyclopedia. Along the way, Craig practically falls over himself gushing over the book, repeatedly trips over his own tongue, and commits the ultimate interview sin… but you’ll have to listen to find out what it is (actually, there are two pretty egregious faux pas committed herein… oh, the shame!).

2x14 "Hella Hellish"




Heaven. Hell. What’s the difference? The lines are blurred this week as Craig spins the roulette wheel on the Twilight Zone classic “A Nice Place to Visit” and can’t decide between a halo or a brimstone necklace. He then descends to the cheap and cheesy bowels of 70’s hell for the Night Gallery quickie “Hell’s Bells.” It’s groovy, man.

2x13 Special Report: Richard Matheson's 'Prey'




This time around we deviate (almost) completely from The Twilight Zone to examine Richard Matheson’s short story “Prey,” which MAY have been inspired by Matheson’s earlier “The Invaders.” Voice actor Karen Cenon lends us her talents for a dramatic reading of Matheson’s story, after which Craig faces yet another series of lashings for errors committed in past episodes.

Check out Karen Cenon as E.R.I.S. in The Haven Chronicles:

2x12 "Damn It Feels Good to Be a Doppelgänger"




This year’s Hallowe’en episode isn’t about monsters, or ghosts, or demonic dolls. It’s about doppelgängers, which should clue you in to the fact that we’re covering the Twilight Zone classic “Mirror Image” this week, plus the related 80’s TZ episode “Shatterday.” Along the way host Craig challenges Jimmy Stewart to a fight, invites listeners to a Vera Miles-related self-pity party, and goes a bit (or a lot) overboard with the Bruce Willis jokes. So… it’s a different kind of horror, basically.



Opening Music: “Neither Here nor There (Doppelgänger-we’en variant)” by Twin Loops

“Ghostbusters” performed by Ray Parker Jr. (from the Ghostbusters soundtrack, copyright 1984 by Arista Records)

“Pitkin County Turn Around” performed by Steve Martin (from the album The Steve Martin Brothers, copyright 1981 by Warner Bros. Records)

“Angel Eyes” performed by Frank Sinatra (from the album Frank Sinatra Sings for Only the Lonely, copyright 1958 by Capitol Records)
