Pod Stallions 110: What We’re Watchin’

Keen-eared listeners of the Pod Stallions podcast know that those boys can talk, know a lot of stuff and have opinions, whether they’re asked for or not. Each episode peels back another layer of the enigma-onion that is BraSon, revealing more of their likes, loves and mehs. We thought it was a good time to rip another layer off and talk about What We’ve Been Watching Lately. Comedy, horror, Love Boat, documentary, sci-fi, Love Boat and punk rock are all discussed as well as the Love Boat. It’s like a convo between video store geeks if we still had video stores to hang out in. Give it a whirl; who knows? You just might get turned on to try some suggestions and may even be familiar with others. But don’t forget, Be Kind, Rewind.

Topics include Green Room, VFW, Love Boat, Doctor Who, Are you being served?, Star Trek, History of the World Part 2, Battlefield Earth, The Intruder Within, GORP, Patrick, Australian Cinema, Documentaries, Bob and David, Dick Shawn, Failed TV pilots, #podstallions #plaidstallions #toyventures #startrek #loveboat #tvpilots

So wade in, as the curtain is pulled back to reveal Brian and Jason at their most naked (metaphorically, obviously), in Pod Stallions‘ Group Free For All!

Issue 9 of Toy-Ventures Magazine is now available and features our guide (and fanboyish love letter) to one of Mego‘s most underrated toy lines. Packaging variations, prototypes, foreign distributor variants, unproduced art, it’s all there.

Please help us keep print toy collector magazines alive by sharing this or using our hashtag #toyventures if you own some issues or see them in the wild.
We could use all the help we can get.

Do you miss toy collector magazines?

That’s why we created Toy-Ventures magazine, an old-school print publication dedicated to vintage toys from the 1960s to the 1990s. Each issue is packed with never before seen images and information written by some of the top collectors. We’ve got nine issues and climbing; please check our page here or visit our store.
