1x01 "Rod's Lonely Man"

After a month of protracted backstory and introductions, the podcast officially launches with host Craig Beam (My Life in the Shadow of The Twilight Zone) comparing and contrasting two Rod Serling classics: “Where is Everybody?” and “King Nine Will Not Return.” One will emerge the victor, and the other… well, you’ll have to tune in to find out. Somewhere in the all the chaos Teresa pops in to dole out some trademark spousal emasculation; also listen for a special appearance by Dr. Reba Wissner, PhD (author of A Dimension of Sound: Music in The Twilight Zone) and an unexpected connection between The Twilight Zone and Nine Inch Nails.

Opening theme: “Neither Here Nor There” by Twin Loops
Closing music: “Earl Holliman State of Mind” by DJ Crabby CraB

Craig, WOW, that was an amazing hour.
I really enjoyed your analysis of two of my favorite TZ episodes.
Once again, thank you so much for all that you do.

Craig Beam said...

Thanks Scott! Your support has always meant a lot to me.

Took me a couple days to get back to it, but this was beyond pretty excellent. You knocked it out of the park, man.
