80s & 90s Movies We Grew Up Watching with Bryan, Ryan & Eric

80s & 90s Movies We Grew Up Watching with Bryan, Ryan & Eric

May 4, 2020

Episode 55 of the ReadJunk Podcast is with Ryan Miller (DJ Ryan Midnight, 100% Ska Podcast), and journalist Eric Althoff (Washington Post, LA Times, ReadJunk) and it's all about 80s and 90s movies. Movies we grew up watching all the time on TV, not necessarily good movies. The movies we discuss could be considered underrated, under-appreciated, obscure but they were movies we watched a lot regardless of quality. We talk about Krull, Highlander, BMX Bandits, RAD, Tremors, Only The Strong, PCU, Airborne and many more movies. 

The transition track done is by Vibe Mountain and it's called "AI 2." I got the track on YouTube Audio Library.

Favorite SNL Sketches

Favorite SNL Sketches

March 21, 2020

ReadJunk Podcast has returned! This time with my twin brother Matt and our friend Chris and we discuss our favorite SNL sketches, cast members, seasons or eras, and other things that come to mind. Figured I haven't done an episode since January and since everyone is stuck at home from the Corona Virus, now would be a good time to get some episodes under our belt. Have a listen, and be sure to spread the word about the podcast if you haven't already!

The transition track done is by Kevin MacLeod and it’s called “B-Roll (ska) - Islandesque.” I got the track on YouTube Audio Library. The track is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license.

2020 Oscar Nominations with Bryan and Adam Coozer

2020 Oscar Nominations with Bryan and Adam Coozer

January 27, 2020

It’s the first ReadJunk Podcast episode of 2020 and Episode #50 of the podcast as well! It’s with my buddy Adam Coozer, who co-created ReadJunk with me. He started Read Magazine, I started Ska, Punk And Other Junk and then we merged the sites about 15-17 years ago. This is actually the first time Adam has been a guest on the podcast and figured it would be a good time to discuss the 2020 Oscar Nominations. We usually do an article about our snap judgments of the Academy Awards but think it’s better to just discuss it over a podcast episode. We never claim to be experts on this, and usually we haven’t seen the majority of the movies but hey, it’s still fun to talk about. 

We talk about the upcoming 92nd Academy Awards, 1917, Joker, Marriage Story, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Jojo Rabbit, The Irishman, The Lighthouse, Toy Story 4 and of course it wouldn’t be a discussion without Adam bringing up Rush. Adam pays tribute to Neil Peart as well. We botch the Documentary categories since we never saw any of them so no respect to those categories. We also wonder why film editing is a thing, and how come the sound categories aren't just merged.

I’d love talking with Adam because he makes me laugh and we’ve always worked well with each other so I hope you enjoyed this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it. If you stay until the end of the episode, congrats! 

The transition track done is by Vibe Mountain and it’s called “Great Hope.” I also used the following track below for a bit of intermission music. I got both tracks on YouTube Audio Library. "Busybody" by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license.

Episode 48 of the ReadJunk Podcast is with artist Ryan (Honorary Android), who has designed some really cool ska/punk, Disney/theme park mash up shirts. We discuss how Ryan got into shirt designing, Teepublic, and just designing in general. The conversation soon steers into a ska and punk conversation. We talk about what were some of Ryan's favorite albums of the year and what shows he's attended. 

Since Ryan is a Florida resident and frequent Walt Disney World visitor, I talk with Ryan about Disney World, Galaxy's Edge and the new hit Star Wars attraction Rise of the Resistance...without giving away too much. We discuss the upcoming rides and attractions that are coming to WDW and finally, we end things talking a little bit about The Mandalorian, Disney Plus and some other TV shows.
