Giant Size #1

Giant sized Interviews!

We've threatened it for months and here it is, Giant Size #1. This 160 minute podcast combines unedited interviews with Christa Lang-Fuller, Ralph Garman, John Noble, and John Roecker. In addition to that, we've even included a special cutting-room outtake of your hosts too inebriated to record!

Christa Lang-Fuller: On February 1st, 2016 we had the unique opportunity to interview the wife of the late Samuel Fuller about all things film. Topics covered include her husband, Tigrero, Jim Jarmusch, and the state of modern film. We are sincerely grateful for the opportunity to pick her brain.

Ralph Garman: On February 22nd, 2016 Josh's Babble-Boss Ralph came out to the Soapbox Office HQ and was gracious enough to give us an interview. Topics ranged from Al Pacino to applauding in theaters, but we spent the majority of the time inquiring about his origin story in Philly.

John Noble: On March 20th, 2016 we had the distinct honor to question a living legend. He was an absolute gentleman and gave us so much more time and information than we deserved. In the interview we cover everything from his time on stage in Australia, to Fringe, to LotR.

John Roecker: On April 2nd, 2016 we interviewed a legend of Punk Rock Film. We spent the better part of the hour chatting about what Punk means to us, how we found it, and how it incorporates into film. We also cover John's move from Ohio and his youth spent in The Valley.

Due to scheduling conflicts of Josh being in Italy and Mitch being in California, this episode is hosted only by the lesser-half of the team, but until next week, we hope you enjoy Giant Size #1!!!

Episode 13: Fifty Shades of Secretary

OfficeShout a Safeword!

This week, Josh tries to make the episode BDSM themed! That's right, in Faults in the Vaults we're shouting our safeword to put a lock on the Red Room of Pain that is 2015's Fifty Shades of Grey and submitting completely to 2002's Secretary!

During The News, Josh takes this oppertunity to debut his first short film, Rodney Redbottom while in The Mailbag we receive a request from Charles Wiltgen who is on a mission to advance the quality of the podcast ecosystem! Charles will use sections of our FLAC files to create test files and feeds! Also, Aaron Shelton wins listener of the week as he has helped us rename the atrocious Alternate "REEL-alities" into the amazingly named Total Recast!

Slipping Through The Tracks has Mitch halfheartedly pitching the score to Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and in This Week In Torrents, Josh pitches one of the more insane things to ever air on TV, the rare pilot of the Adolf Hitler situational comedy from 1990, Heil Honey I'm Home!

Episode 12: Johnny Matrix

Keanu Reeves Revelry!

This week, it's all about Keanu Reeves! In Faults in the Vaults, Josh & Mitch decrypt a pair of techno-based dystopias and up the (cyber)punks as we swallow a blue pill and pull the plug on 1999's The Matrix in order to jack you into 1995's Johnny Mnemonic!

Mitch scours a barren Mailbag and finds a query about dream projects and bucket list actors. A strong argument is made against the abuse of fundraising sites like Kickstarter by the wealthy in The Soapbox Rant.

Slipping Through the Tracks has Josh using his turn this week to highlight an abandoned Joe Strummer soundtrack for Permanent Record, which can only be found by digging through This Week in Torrents. You can download the full album for yourself via Josh's Blog.

For the second round of Alternate "REEL"alities, Mitch attempts to redirect two stray career paths and Josh attempts to insert Keanu into the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Episode 11: Freaky Nightmare Before Christmas

Stop Motion Meltdown!

This week in Faults in the Vaults, we venture into the weird with two stop motion animation films presented by the macabre minds of Tim Burton and John Roecker. We stuff Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) back into the bag and deliver Live Freaky Die Freaky! (2006) unto the masses.

Be sure to stay for the special Spotlight Interview with John Roecker, the mind behind Live Freaky Die Freaky! Mitch dips back into the Mailbag to field a question about film pitches for the Man of Steel. Josh makes an argument against the flagrant abuse of satirical April Fools articles in The Soapbox Rant.

This Week in Torrents has Josh bringing attention to a little seen early Tim Burton effort, Hansel and Gretel (1983). Slipping Through the Tracks has Mitch abusing the residual goodwill left from his last pick in order to build a case for the audio time capsule that is 1997's A Life Less Ordinary soundtrack.

Plus! Another brand new segment debuts, Alternate "REEL"alities, thanks to Raleigh {Beer} Soapery.
