Opar, the lost jungle city first appeared in the pages of Edgar Rice Burrough’s “The Return of Tarzan.” Some believe Burroughs took the name from the Biblical reference to Ophir, whence King Solomon supposedly received a cargo of gold, silver, sandalwood, precious stones, ivory, and other treasures every three years via some unknown, secret route. Burroughs would revisit the lost city in several other Tarzan adventures to include “Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar,” “Tarzan and the Golden Lion,” and “Tarzan the Invicncible.”

The Earth Station One Podcast Episode 285 – ESO Stalks Kolchak

Earth Station One Ep 285It was a night that seemed like any other for most people. But the ESO crew are not most people. For Mike, Mike, Mark Maddox, John McCarthy, and Christopher Mills, it would be a night they would not soon forget. A night that would hang on them like a straw hat on the top of a disheveled but insightful and open-minded investigative reporter. It was the night they discussed the brief but influential mid-seventies tv series that brought monsters and the unexplained into living rooms across America. It was also the night that would see the return of Friend of the Station Jan Lucanus who would sacrifice his new associate Nat Mundel to the horrors of The Geek Seat. Also, this night would see Rants, Raves, the Khan Report, and Shout Outs! Oh, what a night!

Hey everyone, in honor of podcasting day or national podcast day, whatever they’re calling it, and in honor of the upcoming October horror movie rush, I am re-releasing a classic episode, remastered for audio, the werewolf horror movie Dog Soldiers (2002). This is one of the first episodes we recorded and released as episode number 11. Listen to us in our awkward, unpracticed, and elbowy goodness.

Also, tune in tomorrow for a special episode!

As we begin the holy week of the movie podcasting calendar, October, we start our Thrilltober month! This week on Myopia: Defend your Childhood we recognized that just because a bunch of people look, act, and sound the same, they are actually rich characters. We watched Dog Soldiers, did you bring your Deus Ex Letteropen-a?

Flopcast 177: Chickens in Charge

The Flopcast

Flopcast episode 177! As summer turns to fall, Kornflake bids a fond farewell to iced coffee, and we consider packing up and moving the whole show to Turkeytown. Also: We recommend several podcasts recorded during (or looking back at) DragonCon, from our friends at Earth Station One, The Adam and JP Show, Needless Things, and Arrow Squad; Kornflake is bursting with Chubby Checker trivia; The Doubleclicks, Molly Lewis, and Joseph Scrimshaw wrap up their Nerd Night Out tour and teach us about snakes, dinosaurs, and chickens; and Kevin’s trip to Vermont Comic Con features Clerks, a Vulcan mermaid, that Monster Squad board game, and (once again) chickens. It’s been a weird week. Hold us.
