330. Night of the Comet (1984) — A Torture Cinema “Adventure”

7 Aug

Killer comets, zombie scientists, and arcade game rivalries, oh my! Jen, Alex, and Paul are joined by the wonderful Keith Manuel to discuss the 1984 post apocalyptic film, Night of the Comet! A film which is really not all that torturous even when you consider it has absolutely no logical consistency to how a killer comet kills everyone on earth… except teenagers who like malls and guns. Also, a baby Chakotay doing sit-ups. Yum.

We hope you enjoy the episode!

Torture Cinema Poll: August Attack of the 80s!

1 Aug

We realize that you haven’t even heard our July pick, Night of the Comet, yet, but it will be up soon! PROMISE!! What you’ll find when you DO listen to that one though is that sometimes the team gets really lucky and ends up watching something really kind of enjoyable.

SO PICK A REAL TORTURE THIS TIME!!! We know! We’ll make it easy! We’ll only pick movies from the official torture list that were made in the 80s.

Oh, gods, what have we done!?

These choices are SO, SO BAD!

save us.

Signal Boost #13: Nicky Drayden (The Prey of Gods) and Wendy Wagner (An Oath of Dogs)

26 Jul

In today’s episode of Signal Boost, Nicky Drayden (a debut author!) joins Stina (in her debut as host!) to talk about the crazy genre mash-up, The Prey of Gods, the journey to becoming a debut author, and how she’s working on a pipeline to encourage Black speculative fiction writers through ArmadilloCon. Then, Jen is joined by Wendy Wagner, associate/managing editor of Lightspeed & Nightmare magazines, to talk about her new novel, An Oath of Dogs; they also talk about why she chose to focus on blue-collar workers in Science Fiction, explore man’s relationship with dogs, and what it took to make the jump from Pathfinder novels to one set in her own world.

(And yes, it’s a total coincidence that we happen to have on two authors whose titles are palindromes of each other)

We hope you enjoy the episode!
