The CCD Podcast: Episode #106 - Horror in 'Dark Times'


After Mary Shelly and Bram Stoker introduced the world to the genre with their Gothic Novels Frankenstein & Dracula, the supernatural and scary have crept into a significant portion of all forms of art. The horror genre has been around since the beginning stages of film... a logical place for ear;y filmmakers to go, capitalizing on the excitement and adrenaline the audience feels when they are scared! This continued through the Drive-In movie theater era, as well as the VCR tape era. Today more than ever the genre has a firm foothold in the industry. Very profitable and able to be made on the cheap, horror movies are as close to a sure thing that a studio has anymore. In this era of widespread social fear and panic, one would think that the stories being told in this genre may prove more important than ever before. Filmmakers Leland James and Randall Kaplan join Jedi Rob down in the CCD Nerdcave to discuss horror in these current "Dark Times". This one should be fun! ENJOY....

The CCD Podcast: Episode #105 - Rogue One One and The State of Star Wars


2016.... wow, what a year. We have seen monumental accomplishments in pop culture... Marvel movies and TV shows we never could have imagined seeing (Dr. Strange, Power Man), ratings that nerd shows can't believe (Game of Thrones, Westworld and the Walking Dead are some of the highest rated and most popular shows on TV), retro properties are hotter than ever (any thing from the 80s/80s that is re-released is sure to be a hit). Man, 2016 is certainly one of the best years to be alive and basking in the glory of the nerd-iverse! And what better way to wrap it all up in a sweet little bow then the FIRST EVER non saga Star Wars movie? Rogue One is here,... and we are EXCITED to discuss it, as well as what ramifications it's success will have on the whole Star Wars franchise! Join Jedi Rob, Joey Armao and Mike D as we chop it up CCD style in the Nerd Cave... long live 2016!!!!

We have been doing these podcasts for awhile, but every once and again a certain topic brings us back to our teen age years for a sec and clouds our judgement completely. A few weeks back Goldberg defeated Brock Lesner and all of the sudden we were 12 all over again... Joe Armao and Steve Resk join Rob Martin in the CCD Nerd Cave to discuss the future of Wrestling and what we can expect in the next few months!

The CCD Podcast: Episode #102 - Small Screams: Terror From The TV Art Show


Horror on the television screen is nothing new... hell, there have been horror themed TV shows since the 1950s! But with the genre exploding on TV now (The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, The Strain... shall I go on?) we decided this would be a perfect subject for our next CCD art show. So we put together the Small Screams: Terror From The TV art show, which will take place on Saturday October 22nd at the Irish Haven.

Rob welcomed Mike D and Tommy Lombardozzi (both have pieces in the show) down to the CCD Nerd Cave to discuss TV Horror over the years and preview some of the subjects that were adapted into pieces for the show. if you love horror TV give this one a listen!
