Gobbledygeek episode 190, “Keep the Nightlight On (feat. Kurtiss Hare),” is available for listening or download right here, and on iTunes here.

We here at Gobbledygeek are avowed fans of big-budget epics, be they superheroic or Tolkienesque. But independent film is an important part of any moviegoer’s diet, one many don’t have access to. Which is why Paul and AJ are thrilled to speak with Kurtiss Hare of the Nightlight Cinema, the new arthouse theater bringing indie film to Akron, OH. Kurtiss talks about the Nightlight’s origin, the incredible response to the project’s Kickstarter, and how he hopes the theater will grow. Plus, Paul gets an education from some Masters of Sex and AJ revisits the classics.

Next: in two days–that’s right, two days!–we stop picking fleas off each other long enough to discuss the latest in the modern reboot of the classic Apes franchise, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

allies

Gobbledygeek episode 150, “Kickstart Your Allies (feat. Magdalena Burnham and Andrew Ruiz),” is available for listening or download right here, and on iTunes here.

Paul and AJ have newfound allies in writer Magdalena Burnham and director Andrew Ruiz, who join them to discuss their television pilot project Allies. They’ve taken to Kickstarter to fund a pilot about the queer teen experience, following members of the gay/straight alliance at a Montana high school. That’s right: independent TV, it’s a thing! Magdalena and Andrew discuss the dearth of LGBTQ characters on TV, their influences, and their goals (Kickstarter and otherwise). Plus, the boys are excited about the return of Saga and AJ is disturbed by Berberian Sound Studio.

Next: they warned you, remember the rules, you didn’t listen. As punishment, you’ll have to listen to AJ and Paul revisit Gremlins 2: The New Batch.

Listen to Episode 133, “Pope Bastards (feat. Jason Tabrys)”

Pope Francis I and Jason Tabrys, a match made in Heaven.

I apologize to all Catholics everywhere.

Gobbledygeek episode 133, “Pope Bastards (feat. Jason Tabrys),” is available for listening or download right here, and on iTunes here.

Jason Tabrys of The BastardCast joins Paul and AJ for a weird, wild, blasphemous, and–yes–sexy experience. Everything from the new Pope to Jurassic Park IV gets discussed, including thoughtful ruminations (sure) on the Veronica Mars Kickstarter and whether or not digital comics will destroy the print market. Very little of it makes any kind of sense, which we suppose is par for the course.

Next: we’re hopping across the pond, at least virtually, as the excellent, very British Wesley Mead guests.
