04 Jun The Twilight Zone
This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call…the Rad Zone. This week Radtober continues as Kyle and Matthew sit down with return guests Greg Gonzalez and Daniel Zafran from the LA Meekly podcast to talk about the classic series: The Twilight Zone. They discuss this sci-fi/horror staple (which wasn’t really all that scary), how this show was way ahead of its time and how people loved Rod Serling’s socio-political commentary, as well as his love of boxing and grandmas. Kyle goes down a 1950s TV rabbit hall, Burnside talks about meth and Natalie watches footage from the Twilight Zone movie that she can’t un-see. This episode is sponsored by Loot Crate.
