Then Is Now Episode 54 – Stuntman Eddie Braun

https://www.podserve.fm/episodes/35986/then-is-now-episode-54-eddie-braun.mp3 Here on Then Is Now, we strive to discuss pop culture of the past (THEN) and how it relates to the present (NOW). Today’s episode is the perfect example of that!

His parachute malfunctioned and opened on take-off, causing the rocket to float to the bottom of the canyon, landing on the...

https://www.podserve.fm/episodes/35755/the-east-meets-the-west-ep-13-primer-episode-part-1.mp3 This episode is not going to be our usual one in which we take a deep dive first into a Shaw Brothers film, then a Spaghetti Western movie. This episode is a primer intended for new listeners, as well as helping current listeners bone up on their Shaw and Spaghetti movies, or even to maybe clarify things that weren’t clear before. Patsy and I are joined by two experts on both Shaw and Spaghetti: John Grace from Midnight Movie Cowboys and a man known...

https://www.podserve.fm/episodes/34939/then-is-now-episode-52-live-like-a-cop-die-like-a-man-with-rod-barnett.mp3 My special guest on this episode is the amazing podcaster Rod Barnett host of both the Naschycast and The Bloody Pit. We actually recorded this in January, and due to a technical issue with one of the files, it took me until this week to finally get rid of most of the static in Rod’s voice, and made it fine for listening. And that’s important because you’re going to want to listen to this episode: we have ventured into a genre...

Patsy the Angry nerd and I had a lot of fun covering today’s films. This episode we discuss The Flag of Iron...

https://www.podserve.fm/episodes/31757/then-is-now-episode-48-rebel-without-a-cause.mp3 Rebel Without a Cause (1955), starring the iconic and legendary James Dean, is a classic film that everyone MUST see! Lucas from Denmark returns to the show to help me break down this great piece of cinema. We had fun previously exploring American Graffiti, and once again we get a fresh perspective on James Dean’s opus, not only because Lucas is from Denmark, but also because he’s 19 and we like to get a young person’s perspective on pop culture of the...
