The Monster SciFi Show Podcast

The Monster Scifi Show PodcastThe Monster Scifi Show Podcast is your weekly dose of sci-fi news with movie and tv reviews and commentary. It’s Scifi from a certain point of view.

But wait, there’s more…

We have two new bi-monthly podcast series: Re/watch and Versus

The Re/watch podcast deals with me looking back at a movie that I hated at first viewing. The goal is to do research about the production and get behind the scenes information about the movie and then to re/watch it with fresh new eyes. With analyses of my brilliant and superior mind, I will answer this simple question, can you re/watch this movie again?

With Versus, the premise is to talk about and compared the original movie or work versus the remake or updated version. Does the original work still work today? Does the remake outshine the original? I’ll compare the directors, the actors, the stories, and the music. Which movie will reign supreme!!!

    The Monster Scifi Show is kinda back. For the past year, I've been working on producing virtual library programs over Zoom. I've called these programs - Geek Out!  On this particular Geek Out!, several library staff from around the system have joined in on the fun to discuss Cruella that was recently released on Disney+ at no additional cost. Hopefully, this will be the first of many library programs which I will then make in the podcast for The Monster Scifi Show. The Geek Out! is a weekly library program and takes me away from doing my regular shows. Hopefully, this will make up for the lost time. Enjoy!
