Episode 068 - Justin Interviews Cody Carpenter!

A few weeks ago, Justin got the chance to sit down with Cody Carpenter, son of legendary horror and cult film director John Carpenter. We've got the entire interview as they talk about his music career as well as growing up with his famous father; it begins at about 19:23 and runs to approximately 39:30, if you want to skip ahead and check it out. 

We got two amazing treats for the show this week... Emily, formerly of the Classy Little Podcast, joined us on the call just to hang out, and we're giving a huge shout-out to her not only for her work on the Where in the World is the Lisp game, but also for her new show: The Story Behind, which will be debuting later this month. She has begun to assemble the prize pack for the WITWITL game, and you're easily going to get nearly $75 in prizes. If you haven't started yet, you've got a few weeks of clues left to submit to get in on this prize pack. Start playing NOW!! 

The biggest movie news of the week has to be the release of the final Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer, and what a trailer this was! It has the same gritty feel of the first two trailers, calming fears that the production woes on this film may not prove detrimental to its overall quality after all. This episode is jam-packed with podcast-y goodness!

We are over halfway through the month of October now, and the Epic Film Guys horror challenge continues! Many have crossed the finish line past ten films and are trying to complete the 31-day version of the challenge, basically a movie a day for the month. Wow! Thank you so much to everyone who is taking part in the challenge. Keep in mind, this episode lands on October 20th, so even if you start the day this drops, you can watch a film a day and still destroy the challenge! Check your progress over at We'll also be playing some Fanviews clips this week with your progress! Remember, if you want to call in your picks instead, we'll air them on the show! Or, if you just have something else to get off your chest, dial us up at 607.444.1473.

Finally this week, Patrick Sherwood has made another Hobster shirt, further fueling the out-of-control ego of the drunken bum. Will he finally take it too far? Justin talks about his trip back home (including a brief stop in to see Epic Film Guy Nick) and the Halloween horror marathon in 35mm in Syracuse, and Nick will talk a little bit about what he's been up to as well. Thank you so much for listening- we'll see you at the movies!!
