HTP Episode 111 – Jason Pollock

Jason Pollock, host of the It’s Me Jason podcast, gets together with me to swap stories of how fandom has built its own cultures. He has some great insights into stand-up, and even rolled one of his bits into a coloring book titled “The Fly That Refused to Die“. When we hit talk of MST3K, I recount to him the story of how Jackey Raye Neyman Jones rediscovered Manos (as she tells in her book) and I challenge Jason to watch Manos Returns, directed by Tonjia Atomic.

HTP Episode 075 – Joseph Mallozzi

Joe_Puddle

Joseph Mallozzi is a highly accomplished writer, with series such as Utopia Falls and Dark Matter to his credit.  However, the work I couldn’t resist talking about was his work on the Stargate series, joining SG1 in Season 4 and helping launch Atlantis and Universe.  Joe and I talk about world-building, US Military support of the show, the importance of humor in science fiction, and the Richard Dean Anderson factor.  Because Jack O’Neill is awesome. 

We also get to take some awesome tangents into talking about getting kids into reading (the Harry Potter Effect) and getting them to keep reading after they grow up (the Post-Harry-Potter effect).  Also, how has the shortened TV season trend changed showrunning?

You can follow Joeseph on his official website/blog,  JosephMallozzi.com, as well as his Twitter feed.

Not only do we pick apart how genre fiction can cross over into more mainstream types of fiction, we also share our other mutual interests: Animal Crossing, and getting back to conventions sooner rather than later!

Although in Geek circles, Bruce is probably best known for writing the Star Wars Holiday Special, his talents have been applied everywhere from the set of Hollywood Squares to the Oscar Awards. I was really eager to get a feel fro Bruce’s life experiences, having been raised on movie sets and loving film and theatre the way he does.

HTP Episode 037 – Tonjia Atomic

tonjia

Tonjia Atomic is the director of many cult films, not the least of which being “Manos Returns”. In this episode, she and I discuss how the film came together, and how to create the perfect balance of solid filmmaking craft with a low budget and the most surreal of source materials. Obviously, the sequel to Manos could not be totally serious, but no one wanted it to be outright campy either.

You can follow her on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and her official website, TonjiaAtomic.com. You can watch Manos Retuns on Amazon Prime, and for news on the project, it’s best to check the Facebook feed, but there’s also a Twitter and Instagram as well.
