This week Craig lets the music do the talking as we explore composer Jerry Goldsmith’s musical contributions to The Twilight Zone’s musical landscape, specifically his jazz compositions. You’ll want a drink or two for this one… three fingers of your best bourbon, or maybe a dirty martini with three olives. Cheers, mates.

Duck and cover! This week we peel back the radiation-blistered skin of the Twilight Zone classic “Time Enough at Last” to see if Craig still hates it much as he did back in his blogging days. Fan favorite Dr. Reba Wissner stops by with a fascinating report on All Things Atomic TV, and along the way Craig is forced to do his mea culpa routine not once, but twice (it’s not fair… it’s not fair at all!). Make sure you’re wearing your radiation-proof hazmat suit before you hit Play…!

Neighbors, am I right? Buncha a-holes. This week the classic Twilight Zone episode “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street” faces off against the not-quite-as-classic “The Shelter” in a suburban grudge match for the ages. Along the way Craig unwraps a mint copy of Twilight Zone Magazine (for research purposes) and discovers that every good idea he has for the podcast… well, Tom Elliot had it first.
