Introducing the 'Casting Off podcast

This is gonna have to be the last one, but I needed one more podcast in my life to talk about nautical and island stuff. Movies mostly, but probably some TV shows, books, and comics, too. This one is just David and I, so scheduling will be super easy. It'll still be a monthly show, though.

In the first episode, we talk about the difficulties of choosing a name for the show, our fondness for oceans and islands, and then dive deep into Disney's classic adaptation of the Jules Verne novel, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Oh, and even though this is the last podcast to squeeze onto my plate, it won't be the last new one you'll hear about. There are a couple of others brewing that haven't been announced yet. I'll have a total of eight.

Baby podcaster is not just walking but running marathons now!

20000 Leagues was actually a title I considered for my first pick on Mystery Movie Night but went with Forbidden Planet instead. They both have that trope of the wealthy reclusive scientist building doomsday weapons in their secret fortress, foreshadowing the Bond Villain archetype that would show up just shy of a decade later. Between this and North by Northwest it's a shame that James Mason didn't get a chance to play an actual Bond villain.

Oh, how cool would that have been?

That's like my realization on Hellbent's Wild Wild West episode that Ted Knight totally should have been a Batman villain on the '66 show.
