Since I schedule, plan far ahead and also try and find appropriate material that my guests are familiar or comfortable with talking about when it comes to these music video episodes, I haven’t been able to touch on the late, great DMX since his passing.

The Meteor Man (2003) with Sharai Bohannon

The Meteor Man (2003) with Sharai Bohannon

I found my guest, Sharai Bohannon, very recently through a toxic scenario she exposed over the Twitter universe. While that was the reason I found her to connect, she’s a person who has SO MUCH to offer. Even beyond her very fun horror podcast, A Nightmare On Fierce Street. Sharai has lots of talents and […]

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003) with Scott Mendelson

Lara Croft Tomb Raider - The Cradle Of Life with Scott Mendelson

My original guest for the show, Forbes writer Scott Mendelson returns for the first time proper (AKA not a commentary track). And while not a “favorite” film per se, the second Angelina Tomb Raider adventure has had a significant resonance in his lingo if you’re a follower of his box office reporting. Scott coined the […]

The great Stephanie Crawford returns! Her first time on the show proper. If you remember, she was on the Holiday Gift Guide episode before. And don’t worry, we know you loved us discussing Blu-rays.

Shin Godzilla (2016) with Aaron Neuwirth

Shin Godzilla 2016

Enjoy Godzilla Vs Kong over the last week? I did! I’m following that movie up with a discussion on the 2016 Toho refresh, Shin Godzilla. Not only is it a fresh take on the series that has 30+ entries, it’s also one of the best Godzilla films ever made. Perhaps the best since the original. […]

Bobbie Jo And The Outlaw (1976) with Mike Vanderbilt

Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw with Mike Vanderbilt

Mike Vanderbilt is back! After meeting on the Jason Goes To Hell Episode last year, I knew I’d be bringing him back regularly.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Jennifer Wreyford and I met in a former place of employment and upon first interaction with her, I was immediately captivated and taken with her skill as a speaker, a leader and someone who relatively has a great sense of communication with people.

Jamie Alvey is the first guest on the show that I found through another guest on the show. Back in October, when I recorded with Molly Henery she mentioned to me that she would be doing a live script read for something called the Devil’s Kettle Drama Club (Nice nod to Jennifer’s Body). So I […]

Lady Snowblood with Katie Rife

Lady Snowblood with Katie Rife

I’ve been meaning to have Katie Rife from The A.V. Club onto the show since it started, but alas here we are, half a year into this and BAM – she has arrived. And with an absolutely delicious pick of a movie to boot. Though, I had no doubt in her picking something to bring […]

Persepolis with Sharareh Drury

The Great Dictator with Gretl Claggett

The Great Dictator with Gretl Claggett

Welcome to the encore performance of this episode! My laptop had taken on dump on me and lost the original one. But alas, it was recorded again and I think even more rich than before.

Wild at Heart with Nate Utesch

Wild at Heart with Nate Utesch

Technologically speaking, I am back with an all new laptop to bring you quality episodes of this silly show. And to be quite honest, aside from me not really having the capacity to do a polished edit, I enjoyed last week’s content with Russell McGee quite a bit. This week, my longtime friend Nate Utesch […]

Daleks’ Invasion Earth 2150 A.D. with Russell McGee

Well, this was not the episode I promised or expected to be leading the charge into 2021…but here we are!

Out of Sight with Maxwell Haddad

Out of Sight with Maxwell Haddad

Maxwell Haddad and I met through podcasting on Out Now with Aaron and Abe. When it comes to cinema and television, he has a beautiful mind regarding his criticism.

Secondhand Lions with Molly Farnsley

Secondhand Lions

Molly Farnsley is another person from PopCon Fort Wayne in 2018 that took the podcast stage that never recorded. She was actually the first person I inquired about coming up to guest on it. Her artwork at her booth easily caught my attention and she seemed a delightful person when conversing for a few moments […]

Closing With A Song: “Adam’s Song” by Blink-182

Closing with a Song: Adam's Song - Blink 182

There was no way getting around doing Blink-182’s “Adam’s Song” this week. Every bit and piece of it was leading to this. Mark Hoppus was in Bleeding Audio. Female director. The Decline of Western Civilization was about punk music. My only hesitation is the song being kind of a bummer, but in turn that led […]

Out Now Commentary – Unstoppable (2010)

Out Now: Unstoppable

Time again for the Out Now Commentary track. This one (for November) is for Tony Scott’s final film Unstoppable.

The Decline of Western Civilization with Chelsea Christer

The Decline of Western Civilization

The Day Of The Jackal with Pres Maxson

The Day of the Jackal with Pres Maxson

I met Pres Maxson at PopCon Fort Wayne back in late December of 2018. Running a live podcast stage with nary a podcast to sign up for, I had to fill it with content and went looking around the convention for talent interested in discussing their work on stage.Pres was more than obliging. Needless to […]

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly with John Rocha

The Good the Bad and the Ugly with John Rocha

John Rocha is one of the most treasured friendships I’ve made in this journey called life. We both worked in DVD Quality Control as I’d mentioned many times already going through the life of this show. “Johnny” as I’d call him, was the esteemed actor of the group, being the one that had the most […]

Addams Family Values with Sabina Graves

It’s hard to talk about Sabina Graves and not use the word “awesome”. A couple of years ago, she guested on one of the Out Now October Horror Specials to partake in our topic of women directors in horror. Sabina was a total joy to listen to and bounce off of in discussion. When I […]

The Fog with Justin Beahm

One of the most important voices in both the horror realm and home video, Justin Beahm is always a pleasure to have a discussion with. His ideals and outlook are always very positive and inspiring.

The Bird With The Crystal Plumage with Molly Henery

The Brandon Peters Show 004 The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

Molly Henery is a writer whose work and film mentality I’ve admired for a long while now. It was only fitting the show’s first guest I’ve not collaborated with before and first foray into horror be her. She’s a hustler when it comes to writing and covering horror films for film festivals as well as […]

Back To The Future 1990s Remake

The Brandon Peters Show: Back to the Future 90s Remake

Back to the Future turned 35 years old this year. This movie has been a seminal part of mine and many people’s lives. It’s perfect. Since the day it was released it has been celebrated, discussed, had documentaries, interviews and books produced all about it. What more could a silly podcast add to the discussion […]

Grosse Pointe Blank with Aaron Neuwirth

The Brandon Peters Show: Grosse Pointe Blank

My next guest perfectly compliments and follows up with the premiere episode. When I began writing for Mendelson’s Memos, I had a list of things I was hoping to achieve through my film writing. One of which was to guest on a podcast to talk about film and what have you. After my second or […]

Shanghai Knights With Scott Mendelson

The Brandon Peters Show: Shanghai Knights
