The Official Podcast – Episode 03: A Colin Mockery

We’re finally back! It’s a new episode for the New Year, with a shiny new guest host. This week I’m joined by the always interesting Van “The Social Butterfly” Strapp and first time guest Elroy “El Técnico Diablo”.

In this episode we planned on chatting about CES but after I failed to plan the planning properly, we decided the Golden Globes would be more fun. After which we briefly discuss the new digital channels in Australia specifically Channel 11, as well as the obligatory unplanned tangents. A special thanks to Van for hosting and Elroy for the use of his fantastic audio gear.

The Official Space Meat Podcast – Episode 01: Walken vs. Wild

Decades of training, years in the making, minutes to set up, seconds to f*** up. The Official Space Meat Podcast is here!

Hosted by site founder and editor Liam Marcon, listen as he chats popular culture news and topics with fellow Space Meat writers and even the occasional special guest.

In this pilot episode Liam is joined by the newest member of the Space Meat team and most regular co-host, Van! Formally of the popular podcast, Geeks of Hazzard, Van isn’t new to the podcasting scene. An accomplished critic and lover of all things motorcar related, at first glance you might not even notice the nerd clawing to get out.

The topics of interest in this first outing are wild and unwieldy but despite many derails we manage to discuss all things Avengers and other Comic-Con heroes, the possible Total Recall remake, and what we’ve been digging on the small screen.

Intro music is “Not Your Enemy” by Megaphone, via of Podsafe Audio.


Speaking of Animation interview Chris Sanders & Dean DeBlois

I hope some of you managed to catch How To Train Your Dragon in theaters (and 3D) and got as much out of it as I did. If you did that I also highly recommend you listen to this wonderful interview on the Speaking Of Animation podcast which interviews the directors and co-writers, Dean DeBois and Chris Sanders. As well as talking about their excellent work on How To Train Your Dragon, they also talk a bit about their past work, including of course directing and writing Lilo And Stitch when they were at Disney.

Podcast: How To Train Your Dragon directors Chris Sanders & Dean DeBlois

Spoilers ahead though – so listen only if you’ve seen the film.

This interview is part master class in storytelling, part behind the scenes and all of it is fascinating. Run by Dreamworks animators and staffers, The Speaking Of Animation podcast is aimed at animators, but the show is excellent for filmmakers and film fans of all kinds. Take special note of Chris and Dean’s stories on how various story elements of How To Train Your Dragon were conceived and added, because you can see in the final product how well these ideas end up supporting and plusing the story by an order of magnitude.

Review: 12 oz. Mouse

From the co-creator of Aqua Teen Hunger Force comes 12 oz. Mouse, the strange story a green mouse as he indulges his seemingly impulsive desires and the conspiracies, destruction and strange events that trail after him. In this video review I make a goof of myself while attempting to convey the surreal awesomeness that is 12 oz. Mouse.

(12 oz. Mouse is available through Madman.)
