Episode 38: Good Lawd!

In this episode, Adam puts a whole new SLANT on Shakespearean names, ENTERS a competition live on air, and CREATES a new classic movie fan (with your help)...

We'll take a look at Humphrey Bogart's chilling 1951 thriller, 'The Enforcer', Mickey Rooney's preposterously befuddling attempt at going gangster in 1950's 'Quicksand', and take a trip through the creation of the Earth, hand in hand with "De Lawd", in the often controversial, but surprisingly delightful 'The Green Pastures' from 1936.

Radio entertainment this week comes from the Lux Radio Theatre, in a very biblical adaptation, starring Victor Mature and Hedy Lamarr.

ALSO WITH ADDED Mentalfloss! Podcast Awards! 1980's High Fives! Machine-Gun-Canterburys!

Episode 29: This Is Getting Serial...

In this, the 29th incarnation of Attaboy Clarence, we're descending into the grim domain of the serial killer...

Adam brings you three early examples of serial-killer-thrillers in classic cinema, 'Lured' a glossy affair from 1947, 'The Spiral Staircase', a shadowy horror from 1946, and the nightmarish German classic, 'M' from 1931.

Radio entertainment comes in the form of two classic thrillers from Suspense and The Screen Director's Playhouse.

Also, listen as a man in a chamber pot tries to talk up the glamorous side of washing the dishes, and we indulge in a round-the-world quiz, courtesy of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.

Let the good times roll!
