Introducing: The Mystery Movie Night podcast!
So the podcasting bug. I've caught it bad.
In addition to Dragonfly Ripple and Starmageddon, I've helped start a couple of more shows and there's talk about a fifth. And then that'll be it, I promise. I'm tempted to give you details about shows Four and Five, but I'll hold off until those are ready. One of them will be very soon.
Show Three though is done and the first episode available. It's called Mystery Movie Night and it features myself, my pal Erik Johnson (who created our awesome logo and that marquee above), my brother Mark, my brother-in-law Dave, and my son David. The concept is that one of us picks three movies that all have a secret element in common. It could be anything: an actor, a character, a prop, etc. We discuss all three movies then try to guess the common thing. That's the Mystery, and there's even a way for listeners to play along, but really it's just an excuse to share and talk about movies.
This month, we watched Stagecoach (1939), She's Having a Baby, and Star Trek (2009). And I realized how nice it is that we have such a broad range of ages on our panel. You have old farts like me, slightly younger farts like Mark and Dave, fresh young bucks like Erik, and a bona-fide whipper-snapper in David. That gives us some different perspectives and we'll try to diversify even more down the road by adding some guests once we know what we're doing.
It'll be an every month or so thing and I'm pretty excited about it, so I hope you'll give it a listen. You can do that below or by subscribing to http://mysterymovienight.libsyn.com/rss on iTunes. I'd love it if you did that second one. This is gonna be fun and that way you won't miss an episode.
