Tim and Jen welcome the founder of our fave streaming channel, B-Movie TV, for a conversation about curating the finest trash and dealing with small fish in small ponds.
B-Movie TV has everything: martial arts action, horror and slashers, vintage skin flicks, zombies (if you like that sort of thing), and some of the weirdest shit we’ve ever seen! Do have a Roku, and do you love trash cinema as much as we do? Add B-Movie TV to your lineup!
Surprise! You get an extra bonus episode for April! Animal expert Emma Bowers returns to discuss the Tiger King before Tiger King: an Animal Planet reality series about ill-starred exotic pet owners called Fatal Attractions.
For more of the delightful Emma, listen to our episode on the truly ill-conceived lion-based thriller Roar.
Jen and Tim are joined by Rifftrax writer/producer and author Conor Lastowka to examine one of the only true auteurs in cinema. He’s James Nguyen, and he’s given us movie masterpieces like Birdemic, Julie and Jack, and Replica, as our guest knows all too well!

Tim and Jen are both fans of Conor’s podcast with Rifftrax/MST3k alum Michael J. Nelson. It’s called 372 Pages We’ll Never Get Back, and it’s highly recommended to anyone who’s ever thrown a book across the room because it was so bad.
Jen talks with Sean Morris (@saneiscrazy on Twitter) about a drug movie in which the producers were afraid to show the drugs: Bright Lights, Big City, starring Michael J. Fox.
For more of Sean, try our episode on the rappin’ Warren Beatty political satire, Bulworth!
The delightful Chapo dad joins us for Death Wish 3, possibly the simultaneous nadir and high point of the Death Wish series.
According to Danny Peary in his book Guide for the Film Fanatic, “when director Michael Winner complained that Death Wish III [sic] was given an X rating because it had 63 killings while the R-rated Rambo [: First Blood Part II, 1985] had 80 killings, the woman at the Ratings Board explained that most of those killed in Rambo are Vietnamese.”Paul Talbot, Bronson’s Loose!: The Making of the Death Wish Films
Tim and Jen are very excited to have animator, voice actor, and writer Bill Kopp on the show to discuss his career, especially the beloved-but-now-scarce Fox Kids show Eek! the Cat. Sorry we had to record Bill on Edison cylinder lol
For another creator interview, listen to our episode with Dutch director Ate de Jong.
Matt Jay guests and brings us the amusing TerrorVision! We also go hard as fuck on Leonard Maltin and his stupid movie guide.
Want more 80s cult mania? Listen to our episode on a movie about an alien who eats Italian people, Eat and Run!
Thank you to all our patrons for being so patient with us! As your reward, this month’s bonus is an extra-stuffed (nearly two hour) episode about a widely reviled mondo slavery documentary. This one’s called Farewell Uncle Tom (Addio zio Tom in the first language of the filmmakers). Jen and Tim are joined by T. of the great Champagne Sharks podcast and we all tackle one tough-to-watch but necessary film.
