Monster Kid Radio #120 - Writing Karloff: A One-Person Play with Randy Bowser


Boris Karloff made quite the impression on writer/actor/musician Randy Bowser . . . so much so, Randy has written Karloff: A One-Person Play, and he's on Monster Kid Radio this week to tell us about it. In this episode, Randy talks with Derek about the process of writing the play, where he found his information and inspiration, and whether or not the Karloff estate is behind the project. Thank you to all the Monster Kid Radio listeners that have backed the Kickstarter campaign to finance this one-of-a-kind piece of stage magic so far!

Monster Kid Radio #119 - Meet Monster Kid Randy Bowser


Boris Karloff is not just one of the patron saints of Monster Kid Radio. He's not just a guy who played movie monsters. He was a working actor who constantly worked on his craft and gave every project his all, and Randy Bowser's upcoming one-person play Karloff will highlight and feature more than just the monster elements of this man's journey and career. This week on Monster Kid Radio, we meet playwright/actor/musician Randy Bowser, learn about his Monster Kid background, and how Boris Karloff influenced his creative path.

Monster Kid Radio #118 - Kyle Yount and the '90s Gamera Trilogy


You'll believe a turtle can fly . . . and shoot fireballs. Kyle Yount's visit to Monster Kid Radio (or should we say Kaiju Kid Radio?) continues as he and Derek talk about the 1990s trilogy of Gamera films (dir. Shusuke Kaneko). Kyle is the mastermind behind the Kaijucast, and not only is he a fan of all things Godzilla (which he plans on documenting in his upcoming documentary Hail to the King: 60 Years of Destruction), but he's also a fan of that OTHER giant Japanese monster whose name also starts with the letter G.

Monster Kid Radio #117 - Hail To The King: 60 Years of Destruction with Kyle Yount


Monster Kid Radio isn't the only monster-themed podcast in the Pacific Northwest. Kyle Yount has been talking about "Godzilla and all of his rubber-suited foes" on the Kaijucast since 2009. Since then, he's been able to do some amazing things, like introducing King Kong vs. Godzilla (dir. IshirĊ Honda) at the Hollywood Theatre in 2012 for that film's 50-year anniversary. (Derek was at that screening, and it began his fandom of all things kaiju proper - thanks Kyle!) Now, Kyle has an opportunity to do something even bigger. Hail to the King: 60 Years of Destruction is a documentary produced by Kyle . . . and the supporters of his Kickstater program.

Monster Kid Radio #116 - Beverly Washburn at Monster Bash


Beverly Washburn's Hollywood history brought her into contact with many legends, and Monster Bash brought her into contact with Monster Kid Radio! Comic Book Central's Joe Stuber set up the interview, and together Joe and Derek ask Beverly about her experience with Mole Men, Captain Kirk, and a really messed up family led by Lon Chaney, Jr. Beverly was a great guest, and we thank her for spending some time with us at Monster Bash. After the interview, Derek opens up the floor for a discussion about a particular piece of news that has the potential to break the internet . . . or at least, a few message boards.

Monster Kid Radio #115 - Joel Hodgson at Monster Bash


Here at Monster Kid Radio, we ask Mystery Science Theater 3000 creator Joel Hodgson the hard questions about his current day job, his history with MST3k, and what he says about critics that might consider riffing less-than-respectful. Comic Book Central's Joe Stuber set up the interview, and the two of us sat down with the very gracious Joel for this episode of MKR. (And check it out - Joel even played a round of Monster Kid Radio's Classic Five!)

Monster Kid Radio #114 - The Ultimate Abbott and Costello Tribute Show at Monster Bash


Bill Riley, Joe Ziegler, and Jason Crutchley were at Monster Bash this June, but attendees probably know them better as Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, and Scoop Fields - The Ultimate Abbout & Costello Tribute Show! When they weren't performing nightly at the convention, they could be found interacting with the Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein display at the show, or even interacting with people in the hallways! These guys were amazing, and were generous enough with their time to sit down for an interview with Comic Book Central's Joe Stuber in which they talk about their history, how they came together, and their favorite eras and routines of The Boys. Additionally, Derek talks briefly about the soon-to-be-released Universal Classic Monsters: Complete 30-Film Collection DVD set (and another Universal box set that might also be worth your time).
