Things Get Sticky as Host Derek M Koch and I Discuss 1958’s THE BLOB!
What’s your favorite monster movie?
If you’re like me, you probably can’t name just one so you have qualifiers…your favorite Universal monster movie, your favorite giant monster movie, your favorite man-in-suit monster movie, and on and on. While I’d be hard pressed to name any one all-time favorite monster movie, I have a pretty clear sense of my top 10…or maybe 20…and the 1958 film The Blob is definitely in that list!
That’s why it was so much fun to be a guest on my favorite film podcast this summer talking about one of my favorite classic monster movies with host Derek M. Koch. I listen to a lot of podcasts and Derek’s Monster Kid Radio is consistently one of the best produced and most entertaining in my feed. Each week, Derek and a guest discuss a favorite monster movie; favorite classic actor, actress, or director; or a topic relevant to monster kids of all ages. Framed by mostly-spooky surf music, every episode of Monster Kid Radio is your weekly escape to the monster kid culture and a must-listen to fans of classic, and not-so-classic, genre movies of yesterday.
There’s a lot to talk about regarding The Blob, so much so that Derek and I can’t cover it ourselves! So to fill in some more blob blanks, Derek takes listeners back to Monster Bash for a recording from the Q&A session with Kris Yeaworth, the son of the film’s director.
You can listen to the episode on the Monster Kid Radio website or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. With 335 episodes and counting, I highly encourage all you Monster Kids to subscribe to Derek’s podcast and dig into the catalog of back episodes. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed! Also, you can connect with the MKR community on the podcast’s Facebook Page and Facebook Group.
So check out Episode 331 of Monster Kid Radio and let me know what you think? Do I have a future as a podcaster, or should I stick to blogging? My friends always say I have a face for radio!
