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.

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!
