CULT PERSONALITIES PODCAST: Influential and enjoyable cult comedy
Cult Personalities is a brand new podcast dedicated to all the geeky, underrated, unusual, and offbeat movies, music, TV shows, books, comics, collectibles, beer, and more that we’re passionate about – basically anything that may have a cult following that influenced and shaped us into the irreverent weirdos that we are today.
Hosted by beer writer and blogger Derek Warren, former co-host of the Beer Geeks Radio Hour, and Rich Howells, founder and editor of NEPA Scene and co-host of the NEPA Scene Podcast, this weekly show is our way to geek out and share our passions with fellow nerds and nerf herders, discussing big franchises and obscure gems while sharing our honest opinions and personal stories in a fun and relatable way.
In Episode 2, we mourn the loss of Gene Wilder, who recently passed away at age 83, by discussing our favorite comedy movies and the TV shows and films that shaped our sense of humor, along with others we just enjoyed and would recommend.
Before we get into comedy, we start by talking about the Misfits reunion, a documentary about extras in the original “Star Wars” movie called “Elstree 1976,” “Blood Punch,” “Pokémon,” remaking “Susperia,” and the upcoming “Phantasm” sequel.
We cover a lot of comedic ground throughout the show, starting with Gene Wilder and moving into Monty Python, Kids in the Hall, “The Simpsons,” “Ghostbusters,” “Count Duckula,” “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” Kevin Smith’s movies, “Troll 2,” “Dead Alive,” “Trainwreck” and other Judd Apatow movies, “Tucker & Dale vs. Evil,” Weird Al’s “UHF,” “Microwave Massacre,” “Pee Wee’s Big Holiday” on Netflix, and more!
