HTP Episode 149 – James Greene, Jr.

James Greene, Jr. is the author of the recent Ghostbusters history book, A Convenient Parallel Dimension. His book goes a great job of looking at the struggles to create the different installments in the Ghostbusters franchise, including looking at the conflicts that happened behind the scenes. In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, James and I spend a fair amount of time discussing how film culture itself was different in the 80s, at the time of the first Ghostbusters, and how that shaped our view of the film 40 years later.

You can follow James on Twitter and on his official website.

HTP Episode 147 – Jim the Podcast Sherpa

Jim the Podcast Sherpa is your guide to the many, many podcasts of the internet.  As the host of the podcast ‘Too Many Podcasts!’ Jim likes to dig up deep cuts and show a new listener why they’d want to try a certain podcast.  Often, he does this by looking deep into why the host does their show, and why they do it a certain why.  Appropriately, Jim and I spend a lot of this episode discussing why our shows take the form they do, which is some great inside chat for a new podcaster. 

I previously appeared on Jim’s show in August of 2022, and would be happy to return any time.

This episode also features commentary on my plan for social media now that Elon Musk owns Twitter.

Jim hosts Too Many Podcasts and The Sherpa Screening Room on nearly any podcast platform you can think of, and tracks everything on his website, The Sherpalution.
