Well it’s official, Devour the Podcast is now up and running, and despite the poor audio quality of the first episode, I’ve got some new ideas that I will be rolling out over the course of the coming weeks and months as the podcast begins to pick up steam, as well as pages of notes on how to fix the shows audio so it doesn’t sound like it’s being recorded in a wind tunnel.
First and foremost, I’d like to say thank you to everyone who has subscribed to the show via the blog RSS feed, as well as thanks to anyone who’s subscribed through Itunes (the show is now available through Itunes and should come up in searches within the next couple of days under the title of “devourtheblog” and if you’d like to subscribe directly through Itunes the link is here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/devourtheblog/id500984987 )
So you’re saying to yourself, “What can I expect from an upcoming episode of Devour the Podcast?” and I have the answer for you.
Each episode will feature the segment It came from the Instant Queue, where I choose one of the hundreds of horror films available to stream on Netflix and review it. Good, bad, or terrible, I’ll suffer through it so you don’t have to. In Episode 1, I reviewed the film Grave Encounters, a film that rose above my incredibly low expectations and was not only entertaining, but a genuinely well made film. I can’t say that every film that gets reviewed in this segment will be good, or even worth the 60-120 minutes of its running time, but I’ll always give it to you straight.
The other main segment that will appear in every episode is Our Feature Presentation, a segment where I will choose a specific film (or book, comic, video game, etc) for review. Periodically I will round-up a guest host (either my former co-host of The Cryptcast Dez, or a fellow podcaster from the horror podosphere) for a discussion about Our Feature Presentation to make things a bit more interesting. At the end of each episode, I will announce the subject of the upcoming episodes Feature Presentation (Episode 2 will be the Jack Ketchum/Lucky Mckee film The Woman).
Along with those two segments, a third segment entitled Soundtrack Spotlight will be featured in select episodes. Soundtrack Spotlight is my way of sharing some of the fantastic horror soundtracks I’ve found over the years with you, the listeners.
More segments will come as I think of them, and if you the listeners/readers of this blog have any suggestions, feel free to comment here on the blog or email me directly at Cenobitedave@gmail.com
Once again, Thank you for reading the blog, and thank you for listening to Devour the Podcast.
