You’ve heard of Dracula and Frankenstein, but what makes them the iconic monsters that they are? Join Megan this week as she explores the films, the mythos, and the men (and some women!) behind those monsters. Then, stick around for some films that aren’t as famous but really should be. It’s Universal Horrors week!
You can read Megan’s original piece about The Body Snatcher (from which she cribbed, just a little) here.

How do you follow up two landmark albums like Don’t Say No and Emotions In Motion? Well, I suppose you scramble and get stuck with Jim Steinman as a producer, you write some solid songs, make an appearance on SNL, and get stellar guests like Brian May for starters. In the process, you end up with your highest charting single, Rock Me Tonite. Except, there’s that video. Did the Rock Me Tonite video destroy Billy’s career? You may be surprised by our discussion..
Joined by podcast friends Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast and BJ Kramp of the Rock And/Or Roll Podcast, Eric and his co-hosts go in-depth on these topics and take a track by track look at Billy’s 1984 Signs of Life album. How did Billy fit in with the wave of hard rock hitting the shelves in 1984? What the hell does the 1982 movie Night Shift have to do with any of this?!? Are you guys talking about the Best of The Counting Crows?!? Listen to find out.
This week, join Megan, some murderers, evil despots, and… Shirley Temple? to explore the beginnings of horror film history with the Silent Film Era. Silent films can be challenging for modern moviegoers, but they are rich with innovation and glimpses of what’s to come. Check out some of Megan’s favorites and learn more about why horror movies are important to talk about in the first place.
Join Megan in her first solo venture while Craig is semi-retired! In this introductory episode, she talks about a spooky limited movie series: A Month of Madness. Candy optional, shivery spine always welcome.

In 1989, Extreme made their debut with a self-titled record on A&M Records that was kinda, sorta produced by legendary producer Mack.
In this second episode of the Pod O’ Graffitti series, your hosts Sonny “Hollywood” Pooni of the Growin’ Up Rock Podcast, Brian Sword of The Double Stop Podcast, and Eric Miller of The Pods & Sods Network share their thoughts on this debut album. Tons of trivia, tons of little factoid nuggets, a close examination of the lyrics both immature and deep, lots of “Nuno’s solo is really fantastic!”, talk of B-sides, a few detours into Mozart, CSNY, two drink minimums, and drunken karaoke. Do.. you.. want.. to.. PLAY?!?
