33:28 – The Schlock Express goes on a continental summer excursion to take in the sights of classic Italian exploitation movies.  Watch as beautiful women are urged to Strip Nude for Your Killer in possibly the sleaziest Giallo ever made, while the Doc muses on the sexual politics of seventies slasher movies.  Rogue cops, meanwhile, Live Like a Cop, Die Like a Man as the ‘polizioteschi’ genre goes psycho.  Finally, The Wild Beasts, the bastard mutant offspring of the Mondo movie and, well, God knows what, sees drugged up zoo animals invade the streets of Frankfurt in some of the most irresponsible film making in the history of exploitation!

33:15 – Desperate to put out a new episode, Doc Sleaze raids his blog for some recent musings on pop culture.  Pausing only for an altercation with a living statue, our fearless host ponders the problems of the rogue paperwork generated by maverick cops before dissecting so called ‘must see TV’ and posing the question of whether Netflix is the true descendent of Universal Pictures B Movie unit?  Finally, having declared that modern pop culture is rubbish, we explore some unpopular opinions on supposed pop culture classics.  Guest appearances from Clint Eastwood, Boris Karloff, John Carradine and Lon Chaney Jr.

Tea and Terror

37:45 – Ripped from the headlines!  Doc Sleaze risks life and limb to uncover the truth about the recent nerve agent attack on his hometown!  Was it all a ‘false flag’ attack by the local Chamber of Commerce to drum up tourism business? (‘Tea and Terror’ tours, anyone?)  Local TV and police responses – caught on the hop?  Are the Russians out-sourcing assassinations?  The role of SPECTRE.  Is the UK being held to ransom?  The investigation is conducted with assistance from The Satan Bug (1965), 7 Golden Women Against Two 07 (1966), Assignment K (1968), Special Mission Lady Chaplain (1966), Agent For H.A.R.M (1966) and Secret Agent Super Dragon (1966).

42:18 – The Doctor’s Wife (1953) extols the virtues of Ex Lax as part of our meditation on illness and medicine.  Dire diagnoses!  Sickening side effects!  Weird dreams and witchcraft by e-mail!  Hairy feet as the key to health!  All part of a general rumination on the limbo long term sickness can leave us in!

Mondo Soho

37:00 The Schlock Express is back on the rails, taking a look at London’s Soho in the sixties through a Mondo lens, courtesy of three classic ‘shockumentaries’. First stop is a trek through the ‘West End Jungle’ and its clip joints, photography ‘clubs’ and escort agencies. We also see ‘London in the Raw’, with its vista of East End pubs, West End clubs, meths drinkers, drug addicts, cat food eating beatniks and hair transplants. Finally, we confront ‘Primitive London’ and its tribes of mods, rockers and beatniks, horrible murders and factory farming.
