You Ain't Heard Nothing Yet: Episode 1

Here is our very first podcast. This whole endeavor is very much a work in progress, especially the ins and outs of setting up feeds and all that jazz. Also, we're still trying to find the right setting to record our sessions. Accordingly, if you should happen to hear the occasional passing vehicle, just ignore it - unless it adds to the vibe of the show.

The basic format will start with something of an introduction, followed by a couple pieces of movie news that happen to strike our fancy. Then we will launch into the main topic for the episode. Finally, we'll end each show with a Glass of Bourbon in honor of someone due such a magnificent honor. Here on our blog, we typically restrict the recipients to great, hardworking actors who have not received the level of respect we feel they deserve. On our podcasts, though, we'll be toasting to a variety of filmmakers, especially those related to the topic of that day's show.

For our first episode, we decided to talk about a genre of film that is very close to our hearts - zombie movies. We'd hope that even if you don't like zombie movies (for some God-forsaken reason), that you'd still give a listen and then write to us about how we've opened your heart and mind to a wonderful new aspect of art and cinema......or, about how we're wrong. And for our first on-air Glass of Bourbon, we drink to the wonderful director, George A. Romero.

As I said, this is all a work in progress. So if you have any suggestions, please send them our way. Requests? Send them, too. We may even start to incorporate questions from our readers/listeners, so keep that in mind as well. We hope you enjoy!
