This week Craig takes a break from social distancing and continuous hand-washing and goes spelunking into the depths of the cavernous CBS Music Library in search of sonic treasures from the greatest film and television composer of all time: Bernard Herrmann. It’s our longest episode to date, but only because it’s stuffed to the proverbial gills with music… thankfully our loquacious host lets the music do (most of) the talking.

This week Craig drinks the alchemist’s longevity potion and spends an eternity analyzing the classic Twilight Zone episodes “Long Live Walter Jameson” and “Queen of the Nile.” It’s a heady blend of Ken Burns-esque Civil War side trips, Nazi Germany flyovers, and ruminations on mortality. We Sphinx you’ll really like it.

Mar 1, 2020

We’re back! Love is in the air as Craig gazes seductively into the eyes of the first two Twilight Zone episodes he ever saw (“The Chaser” and “Jess-Belle”). Along the way he completely undermines his own efforts to be more “woke” when it comes to lusting after the opposite sex… just in time for Valentine’s Day (which was two weeks ago, so our perfect record of always being late remains intact). It’s a heady brew of Paley Center complaints, surprising Psycho tangents, and more cast connections than you can shake a silver hairpin at. Draw a warm bath, light some candles, and crack open the Courvoisier. Ooh la la!

Sheesh, astral projection phantom kids can be SO annoying, am I right?  Join Craig as he sips some hot chocolate and digs into the classic Twilight Zone episode “Nightmare as a Child,” then jumps forward 25 years into the future to give the 80’s TZ effort “Little Boy Lost” the KID gloves treatment (ha! See what we did there?). Look (well, listen) for a guest appearance by Andrew Ramage of twilightzonemuseum.com fame, then revel in the triumphant return of Dr. Reba Wissner, our very own TZ Music Guru.

Boo! It’s a word designed to scare… or to heckle a comedian. Somehow both definitions apply this week as Craig tackles his ultimate fear by watching two notoriously awful Twilight Zone comedies (“Mr. Bevis” and “Cavender is Coming”), and honestly, what’s more terrifying than that? It’s a Hallowe’en episode with a smile. Oh wait, that’s not a smile…. that’s a frozen mask of abject terror. Boo!

This week, Craig spins the cosmic roulette wheel in honor of the Twilight Zone classics “The Fever” and “The Prime Mover” while self-medicating an ongoing sinus malfunction with a single-malt Scotch. Take my advice and roll the dice, baby.

Check your bags and try to avoid a TSA cavity search as you board tonight’s double-feature flight into the unknown. Craig takes the yoke and performs aerial maneuvers over, under and through the classic Twilight Zone episodes “The Last Flight” and “The Odyssey of Flight 33.” In the final analysis, only one will emerge unscathed. Along the way Craig struggles with French pronunciations, extols the glory of stop-motion dinosaurs and powers through some kind of sinus malfunction. Mon dieu!

Koren Shadmi’s graphic novel The Twilight Man: Rod Serling and the Birth of Television drops on October 8th, and he was kind enough to drop by (in a virtual sense) and talk about it. As usual, Craig trips all over his tongue, breathes too hard and says “um” way too many times.

Submitted for your approval---- Professional voice actor Mark Silverman, planet Earth’s only official Rod Serling vocal impressionist (sanctioned by Serling’s estate and everything!), who kindly spent half an hour chatting TZ with us and regaling us with his talent. Get it while it’s hot! This one’s gonna be worth money someday, gang. And download it twice, in case you misplace the first one.

Aug 3, 2019

Is this a podcast about a television series, or a podcast ABOUT a podcast about a television series? Craig takes a deep dive into “Blurryman,” the extremely meta season finale of the 2019 Twilight Zone reboot, then takes a shocking left turn partway through that threatens to change podcasting as we know it forever. Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration. Let’s just say this episode is not to be missed.

This week Craig stares down the barrel of “The Blue Scorpion” as he nears the end of the new Twilight Zone’s first season. Along the way he goes off half-cocked on a 20-gauge trip down memory lane, which may have been triggered (ha!) by second-hand TV smoke (hey, weirder things have happened up in here). He also tells the triumphant tale of one man’s endless quest for a Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Award… which, as fate would have it, isn’t so endless at all.  Listen first, ask questions later.

Join us as we celebrate the first day of summer with a light and sunny excursion into…. HA! Not even. This week, the dark and moody “Point of Origin,” the eighth episode of Jordan Peele’s new Twilight Zone series, finds itself trussed up in Craig’s interrogation apparatus. Along the way he crushes slightly on Ginnifer Goodwin (because hey, even woke dudes are weak sometimes), and somehow manages to debut yet another jingle.

Men are pigs, am I right? This time around, Craig examines his manhood (not as sexy as it sounds) in relation to the rampant toxic masculinity on display in the new Twilight Zone episode “Not All Men.” Along the way he tries to atone for horn-dogging on writer Heather Anne Campbell, valiantly chides his fellow dudes who refuse to join him on the Woke Train, and manages to debut a brand new jingle in the process.

The day has arrived. After four decidedly underwhelming episodes and one pretty good episode, Jordan Peele’s new Twilight Zone series offers up a bona fide masterpiece: “Six Degrees of Freedom.” Mission to Mars, or incredibly authentic simulation? You decide. And while you’re deciding… GET YOUR ASS TO MARS!

May 12, 2019

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! This week’s episode has… um, nothing whatsoever to do with honoring mothers. Instead, Craig asks the age-old question: what do Christmas Eve in Alaska and a kid running for President have in common?  The answer may surprise you. Episodes 4 and 5 of the new Twilight Zone series (“A Traveler” and “The Wunderkind”) are our research subjects this time around, and we’re gonna get all up in their business with our brand new microscope (from Whipple Industries™, of course).

Apr 27, 2019

This week Craig hits the 'rewind' button on the third episode of the new Twilight Zone and, well... the third time’s the charm, as they say. With "Replay," the series (mostly) overcomes its rocky start and presents a worthwhile--- and important--- episode about the black experience in America…. and not from a historical standpoint, either. This is now. This is real. There’s less humor this week than usual, which is completely appropriate.

Left turn! Host Craig suspends his plan to resume covering the first season of the classic Twilight Zone series to instead dive head-first into the first season of the brand new Twilight Zone series from Jordan Peele. This week he gazes suspiciously at the first two episodes (“The Comedian” and “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet”) and shares his knee-jerk reactions with little preparation or time to truly reflect in a meaningful fashion. Are the new episodes worth checking out? You’ll have to listen to get the full scoop.

Baseball and robots: two examples of classic Americana. This week Craig oils up his glove and manhandles some (base)balls when he takes the mound against “The Mighty Casey” from The Twilight Zone’s legendary first season, then keeps the mandroid vibe rollin’ with a loving examination of the nuts, bolts and artificial hide of the season four classic “In His Image.” Put on your cleats and tune in… and yeah, you’d best wear a cup.

You say last week’s chat with The Twilight Pwn's Fred left you wanting? Too short? Not enough delicious Fredness to sate your Fred-centric appetite? Say no more---- herein you’ll find the entire unedited conversation, tongue-clicks and ‘ums’ horrifically intact. It’s raw, sloppy and unpolished, the perfect aural accompaniment for a raw, sloppy and unpolished New Years Eve. Cheers!

It’s Christmastime again, so of course we’ve cooked up a special treat for y’all---- two, count ‘em, TWO special guests grace our RSS feed this week: Dr. Reba Wissner talks shop about the music score for the Twilight Zone classic “What You Need” (which we’re covering this week… I probably should’ve mentioned that first), then the irrepressible Fred from The Twilight Pwn returns to lend us some much-needed TZ ‘cast credibility. It’s a heart-warming holiday special for the whole family (assuming they’re all over 18 and aren’t easily offended), so pour yourself a tumbler of your best cherry brandy and prepare to get festive. Oh, we’re also unveiling two new jingles this week, for those keeping track. And hey, make sure you stick around after the credits for a last-minute tribute to Outer Limits composer Dominic Frontiere (1931-2017).

Christmas comes a bit early this year as Craig turns the mic over to listener Dylan Vance, who presents his audio drama adaptation of Rod Serling’s “Escape Clause.” It’s his gift to the podcast, which we're thrilled and delighted to share with all of you. Enjoy!

This week author Steven Jay Rubin drops by to discuss his marvelous new book The Twilight Zone Encyclopedia. Along the way, Craig practically falls over himself gushing over the book, repeatedly trips over his own tongue, and commits the ultimate interview sin… but you’ll have to listen to find out what it is (actually, there are two pretty egregious faux pas committed herein… oh, the shame!).
