Y’now that 15-minute segment in yesterday’s episode with Derek M. Koch Of Monster Kid Radio? Wouldja believe it was originally almost an hour long? Derek and I had a blast geeking out about non-Twilight Zone stuff---which ended up being cut rather mercilessly in editing. And well… we just couldn’t let all that great Monster Kid conversation go to waste. So here it is, unedited and unvarnished, just in time for Halloween. You’re welcome.

Halloween 2016! We could do the safe thing and focus on ghosts, or aliens, or vague supernatural phenomena… but no, we’re going straight to the source of all evil: The Devil himself. The Prince of Darkness lends his brimstone-scented aura to “Escape Clause” and “The Howling Man,” two classic episodes of The Twilight Zone, and this week we’re digging into ‘em like Negan’s bat dug into Glenn’s skull (ooh… too soon?). The one and only Derek M. Koch of Monster Kid Radio fame stops by for some choice commentary, affording Craig a great opportunity to demonstrate how terrible he is at conducting interviews. Sigh.

This week, host Craig digs up the dirt Hollywood Confidential-style on two booze-soaked Twilight Zone classics, “The Sixteen-Millimeter Shrine” and “A World of Difference,” episodes featuring real-life spouses Ida Lupino and Howard Duff. Keep an ear out for an earnest exploration of the historical significance of the pinky ring, not to mention the thrilling return of Dr. Reba Wissner. And speaking of spouses, Teresa pipes in with her usual wifely crunchiness. There’s a pretty heavy film noir vibe going on up in here, so tread lightly and trust no one.

This week, Craig gets all wistful and nostalgic as he examines Rod Serling’s “Walking Distance,” one of The Twilight Zone’s most beloved episodes and its very first time travel excursion. There’s also an extended Jack Finney tangent, several Mad Men references, and an epic burn (or two) from his wife and kid.

This week, Craig gazes longingly at two alluring female androids (Alicia from “The Lonely” and Jana from “The Lateness of the Hour”) and, like a true pig, lines them up and scores their respective attributes. Of course wife Teresa pops in for her usual snarky comments, and this time daughter Kendyl joins in for some tag-team daddy dissing. Also listen for a cameo from the godfather of Twilight Zone podcasts, the one and only Tom Elliot.

Welcome! Join host Craig Beam (the My Life in the Shadow of The Twilight Zone blog) as he compares and contrasts two Rod Serling classics: “Where is Everybody?” and “King Nine Will Not Return.” One will emerge the victor, and the other… well, you’ll have to tune in to find out. Somewhere in the all the chaos Teresa pops in to dole out some trademark spousal emasculation; also listen for a special appearance by Dr. Reba Wissner, PhD (author of A Dimension of Sound: Music in The Twilight Zone) and an unexpected connection between The Twilight Zone and Nine Inch Nails.
