Calling All Units - Three Sex-Repulsed 80s Genre Films

I’m joined by Astrid Budgor to talk about three genre films from the early 80s that thrum with deep-seated disgust and fear of sex. This kind of thing often goes unaddressed in genre fiction criticism, aside from a “woah, weird!“, so I’m delighted we had this discussion. The three films are Scream For Help, Butcher Baker Nightmare Maker and Incubus

#35 - Systems: Mutually Assured Destruction

“There’s nothing that people rebel more against, I told jacques, than being forced to acknowledge the secret and immediate power their fellow human beings have over them. There’s maybe nothing more common, routines. A savage power, as indifferent as a thunderbolt, where intellect, merit beauty, language are nothing but animal electricity, a polarity that suddenly develops. Falling under the spell. Forever. We never talk about it - it’s taboo. ” - A dark Stranger, Julien Gracq

Calling All Units - Parasocial Relationships

I am joined by video essayist Shannon Strucci to discuss the mammoth second entry in her Fake Friends series: FAKE FRIENDS EPISODE TWO: parasocial hell. 

This episode was recorded under the assumption you have probably watched part one and part two of this series. It's around 2.5 hours of high-level insight, fantastic editing and in-depth research. It is well worth it if you have any interest at all in the internet.
