In this episode, we explore the culture of offendedness, why they’re offended, and what that means to the rest of us. Later in the program, we’ll speak with a former Playboy executive regarding that publication’s recent move to eliminate nudity and why that might be. Then, we’ll conclude with some thoughts on censorship from a now deceased rock musician and iconoclast, one who often had the final word on why free speech matters more than hurt feelings.

In this episode, we take on the equality myth in historical, literary, and contemporary contexts. Later in the program, we’ll speak to a mathematician on the subject of “equality in math” and how it may or may not extend to human equality. Next, the Shame Chamber will bring us a defendant from the Great White North and its effects on children. And, then, we’ll conclude with a parable from a certain 19th century German philosopher who certainly had much to say on the matter.

There’s a fungus among us! Well, more like… fungi? Believe me, the only fun guys you need to pay attention to are Matt and Jason as they don the evil sunglasses and hack up the Japanese language with their culinary commentary on the 1963 release of Attack of the Mushroom People. Let your handsome hosts shoot spores all over you in the form of film background, funny crimes, the Shipwheel Cult, Japanese Gilligan’s Island, Matt the Yacht Rock Captain, the loss of humanity, hallucinogenic experiences, Reverse Geisha, exciting slave trader careers, Jason’s anti-Gamera rant and other bulbous banter. Now, go on. Give it a lick. It’ll make you feel good.

Great Cushing’s ghost, Matt and Jason are seeing DOUBLE! But this time, it’s not the booze. It’s the blood-soaked bosoms belonging to the Twins of Evil. Become a servant of the Devil as your handsome hosts travel back to 1971 to bring you movie details, unintentionally filthy names, Matt’s twin-dating experience, the Mammo-cam, more teens and their sex and drug riots, Jason’s like for lackeys, polite groping, buying hookers when you’re old, the Pubic Hair song, and lots and lots of the ol’ Kensington Gore. May you find mercy at the seat of our Dark Lord.

There are mysterious parts of this podcast, but the only true mystery is that your very lives are governed by drunken show hosts. And they will be imposing their knowledge upon you in the form of 1980’s Inferno. But, Matt and Jason aren’t talking about mythology, they’re discussing movie background, the passive cuddle, pasta throwing as disapproval, killing off the old, Argento’s colors/visuals, predator/prey relationships, the return of the Selleck Scale, favorite Bradys, Matt’s house lighting tips for Jason, rats avenging cats, occult architecture and one MOTHER of a lunar eclipse! So, ask yourself… what do YOU believe in?

The basis of this scary tale is in reality. And the reality is that, once you check into the horror hotel, you’ll be locked in your room with two cloaked gents chanting some ungodly commentary on the 1960 release of The City of the Dead. So, before you’re sacrificed on the altar, you’ll have some time to consort with film facts, Danzig’s child-frightening forehead, metal band names in this film, “Dick”s, city vs. town, TV-watching as social curiosity, girls who wear your clothes after sex, Matt’s welding woes, Jason’s parrot traumas, the British round-pinchy-face, numerous callbacks from past episodes, the shaming culture and other savoring of heresies. So Mote It Be.

Woe be unto those who play this episode of Terror Transmission as you may open one of the seven gateways to Hell. Thankfully, your ungodly warlocks, Matt and Jason will help you face that sea of darkness while you hopelessly succumb to their cadaverous commentary on 1981’s The Beyond. Evil will invade your eardrums as you are struck blind by movie details, Jason’s recent trip to Italy, stupid American moviegoers, justifying Fulci, the non-racist implications of blech, trans-whatever, unsettling dentures, Mormon girls going wild, the public humiliation of film financiers, Peter Weller’s emaciated doppelgänger and all therein that may be explored. Listen in or you will be cursed forever!

Bienvenue, démons terroristes! Join Matt and Jason at the Canuck pub for 19% alcoholic beer, poutine and something called back bacon, all the while questioning just what kind of party this is. Well, how else would one celebrate 1981’s Happy Birthday To Me? Even if the weather outside is cold and bleak, your handsome hosts will make you toss off your toques and feel elite with some schooling on movie facts, French-French vs. Canadian-French, Matt’s strangulation tips, hot bitchy-witchy, nut-cheeking, Jason’s sexy workouts, teen movies, weapons and sex, red herring overload, “give me souvenirs” and other ways to get the rich kids to like you. So stick around. Because you might never hear a podcast again.
