Martian Drive-In Podcast 89 - Live At Continuum 12

Yep, recorded this one live at Continuum 12 the annual Melbourne Science Fiction convention. Grant Watson and Narrelle M. Harris help me talk about The Return of Captain Invincible, what do you do when someone whose work you love turns out to be a repugnant arsehole and other issues of the day. Audience giveaways happened, silliness ensued and the podcast, for those reasons, runs almost two hours.

Martian Drive-In Podcast 84 - Alone On Mars

This time around, it's solo on the red planet. First I look at the 1964 American science fiction movie Robinson Crusoe On Mars, then we zip-pan to 2016 to take a look at The Martian. Same story, half a century apart, different approaches to the narrative.

Martian Drive-In Podcast 83 - The Misogynistic Horrors Of The 1960s.


For this Easter 2016 MDIP I look at a couple of B horror movies from the early 1960s which treat women badly. First we have 1962's The Brain That Wouldn't Die starring Jason (Herb) Evers and Virginia Leith, then we back back to 1960 for The Hypnotic Eye starring Jacques Bergerac and Allison Hayes, with a cameo by James (Inside The Actors Studio) Lipton's father Lawrence.
