HTP Episode 087 – Deana Dolphin Returns!

D93F0E9D-3DC1-4318-AE7A-6A3E949F9F51

“Captain” Deana Dolphin comes back to Hungry Trilobyte (after first appearing in Episode 23) and is eager to report on the #MakeMoreMST3K Kickstarter campaign!  Yes, MST3K finally has its Season 13 on the horizon, and the fans have a chance to make this more than just a show running on a network.  Joel has decided to build “The Gizmoplex” and create a streaming service that’ll cater to MST3K fans, as well as provide us all with some amazing new resources.

In this episode, we speculate on what sort of features Joel could add to the Gizmoplex, and try and compare how this reflects on the power of the fandom now, compared to the way it was when the show ended after Season 7.  And 10.  And 12.

Be sure to check out the Kickstarter HERE and support new MST3K!

He’s taken a bit of a different path with his show, with different types of guests, and he’s a great example of what makes podcasting such a versatile format. Here, he and I have a great chat about fandom, Rocky Horror Picture Show, horror movies like Halloween and Friday the 13th, Star Trek, and MST3k.

The Life Radio Show 5/12/2020

I had a great time discussing Hungry Trilobyte with Don Smith from The Life Radio Show, out of WWSU. We got to cover a lot of ground on why fandom helps people cope, and how to use it to prompt creativity and positivity. I cover my favorite Treks, analyze the newer Star Wars movies, and gush over MST3k in the 21st century.

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?
