This week, Craig celebrates his birthday by spotlighting two of his all-time favorite Twilight Zone episodes: “Perchance to Dream” and “Shadow Play,” two masterpieces from the mind of Charles Beaumont. Tangents include Craig’s unresolved crush on Maya the Cat Girl and his lamentable inability to dream in the third person.  Fan favorite Dr. Reba Wissner pops in to set him straight about the curious lack of the Theremin in The Twilight Zone, and of course he gets the usual familial abuse from Teresa and Kendyl. Happy birthday, my ass.

OH MY GOD do we have a treat for y’all this week! The irrepressible Fred from the internet’s third most popular Twilight Zone-based podcast---- the renowned and beloved Twilight Pwn--- came to town for one night only, and he graciously consented (likely against his better judgment) to sit down for a beer and a brief chat. So we’re suspending the usual episode analyses format this week… it’s the least we can do for a certified goddamned podcasting legend. This discussion was recorded on 11/17/2016 in the Bunk Bar’s sandwich shop in Portland, Oregon, so expect a lot of background noise… it’s basically cinéma vérité, audio-style.

This week, we wrap up our epic two-part exploration of The Twilight Zone’s three encounters with Mr. Death with the best of the lot, “The Hitch-hiker.” Craig compares the original radio play against the TZ adaptation, commits a near-unforgivable blunder when he confuses military branches (on Veteran’s Day of all days!), and once again leans heavily on fan favorite Dr. Reba Wissner for knowledge and guidance.

This week, host Craig braves two brushes with Death as he examines “One for the Angels” and “Nothing in the Dark,” two classic episodes of The Twilight Zone that feature characters being pursued by that sneaky rascal The Grim Reaper. In the interest of full disclosure: after swearing off drinking whilst podcasting, Craig nonetheless had a few during this week’s recording session, and things didn't end in disaster… so he’ll likely be pushing this envelope and lushing it up for future episodes. You’ve been warned.
