1:02:58 – People have said they spotted something approaching… can it be true? Can a certain podcast be descending back to Earth from the deepest regions of space? Yes, here it is folks… the return of Gunkcast for 2018! After a very extended hiatus we are back with the long-promised episode, which features an even more long-promised album that has finally been released. Yes, we have decided to treat you (our dedicated fans) to an in-depth dissection of each of the songs from this new album & we are dedicating this episode to the 1st track: “Welcome To The Meltdown.”

And as if this couldn’t get any better, we also have jam packed this episode with all sorts of bonus content! We do our signature Gunkcast review of several pop culture movies, as well as a certain exclusive You Tube Red series (& take special note to stick around for a possible hidden ending featuring a certain very long overdue review)! Finally, we have recently unearthed some forgotten recordings which were done several years ago for an intended collaboration with Jimbo… we offer these in special tribute to his memory here. All of this plus our trademark crazy comedy and rocking soundtrack (provided by Smidge & the band)… what more could you possibly want from a podcast? Cheers!

Also, please share the love and listen to some of our favorite podcasts at: Onsug, Static Radio, Insignificast, Letter Seventeen, & The Hustle!

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.
