Chris Cornell, known to the internet as “Sampo,” is the Webmaster for Satellite News and was first on Hungry Trilobyte in Episode 19. This latest chat is a wild ride, fueled by COVID-19 and fan speculation. We discuss how to use MST3K as a “comfort food” in times of quarantine, Chris suggests using Pod People to go to sleep, I counter with Red Zone Cuba. Meanwhile, his favorite episode is The Violent Years, while I never get tired of Teenagers from Outer Space or I Accuse My Parents. And, of course, Manos comes up.
Chris breaks the news that Joel is doing the MST3K Live At-Home Show with Moon Zero Two. I reveal that I participated in the MST3K Home Game, while Chris was interviewing the cast prior to season 8.
Special request: Chris mentions that there was a special showing of I Accuse My Parents at the Colonial Theatre in Pennsylvania, in which he participated. Does anyone have a recording of this?
Here’s where you can check out Sampo’s legacy:
