The most profane and descriptively graphic episode of anything on the network yet (an after-show for Coffee & Cider 20), in which Coffee & Cider's Danielle Corsetto and Rich Stevens unlock the secret science of high-fiving butts.Read More
Danielle and Rich talk about computer stuff.
Keith Calder and Simon Barrett return for an all-spoiler discussion of The Guest, now on VOD, DVD, and Blu-ray in the U.S. None of this will make much sense unless you've seen the movie, and is full of spoilers.
Also posted as Electric Shadow episode 20, but consider this "Electric Shadow episode 16B", with a continuity-free, "regular" episode to come before the week ends.

Moisés noticed that Jeb Bush is pirating ShutterStock images for use in his Instagram feed. The CEO of Shutterstock got involved. 6 minutes later, this was the resulting FREE ADVICE Moisés recorded that can't be considered a political donation.
Unbiased, Fact-Checked, and Apolitical Show Notes and Links
- Shutterstock CEO Jon Oringer is a generous man who only wants to help Jeb Bush save the economy. Is that so wrong???
- Shutterstock is not a current or expected sponsor of ESN shows including our amazing slate of hosts, which is a tragic shame, but we promise it's 100% true!
- POLITICS WARNING: This entire 6-minute, 58-second recording is replete with deeply offensive, non-partisan, and completely impartial fun.
Danielle Corsetto and Rich Stevens do their version of water cooler talk and it becomes a show. Discussed: the importance of a hammock and naps, good gluten-free pizza, and what happened when one of our hosts first tasted "Pizza! Pizza!". Is pregnancy a full-time job?
What do you do when trying to do (or avoid doing) work? Coffee & Cider is a show about two self-employed people motivating (or de-motivating) themselves and each other before hitting their mutual nightly deadlines.Read More
Rich is right: the truth is very boring.
What keeps you up at night? Night Moves is a show from beyond the concept of a show about nothing.Read More
Howard the Duck co-creator Val Mayerik joins Moisés and Giant Size co-host John Gholson to talk about his past life as an actor, specifically in 1977 grindhouse Z-movie The Demon Lover. They discuss the infamous Demon Lover Diary, Z-movie auteur Donald G Jackson, and making things for the love of making them.
After Giant Size 12 and cross-posted posted as Electric Shadow episode 10, because it ran that long and is that good.
- Val Mayerik co-created Howard the Duck, has trained in martial arts, and co-stars alongside Gunnar Hansen (the original Leatherface) in The Demon Lover (1977)
- John Gholson is a UI/UX designer by day. By night, he co-hosts Giant Size, reviews movies in comic strip form, and muses on comics at Gutters and Panels.
Show Notes and Links
- The Demon Lover and Demon Lover Diary are a hell of a double feature. Listen to this episode before "DLD" and you'll be more apt to notice some of the extremely manipulative techniques used in its making.
- Donald G Jackson gave a final interview shortly before his death.
- I defy you to watch the trailer for The Roller Blade Seven (aka Legend of the Rollerblade 7), starring Scott Shaw, Frank Stallone, Karen Black, and Joe Estevez. You will "Dance! ...For the Devil!"
- Jeff Kreines hasn't really done anything since Demon Lover Diary.
- The Skotak Brothers did loads of effects work for James Cameron's blockbusters, from Aliens and T2 through Titanic.
- It looks like the Skotaks got connected with Cameron while they all worked for Roger Corman on movies like Battle Beyond the Stars (starring Christopher Plummer!) and Galaxy of Terror. Shout! Factory has released amazing special edition Blu-rays of both, but they're both free to stream if you have Amazon Prime.
After Thank You for Calling! #12, Moisés and Tiffany Arment talk about the world of theatre (for longer than the episode they were really recording), covering The Little Mermaid on heelies to an all-female Glengarry Glen Ross.
Do we have an Accidental Theatre Podcast on our hands here? No one's using "ATP" for anything...right?
Moisés and John's first Giant Size Team-Up appearance! In this after-show for Giant Size "volume 1" episode 3 back on 26 November 2012, we spoil Amazing Spider-Man #698 and the premise of Superior Spider-Man.
It turns out we're awful at predicting what multinational conglomerate comic companies are going to do.
Full of spoilers and speculation about Captain America: The Winter Soldier. You really should avoid this one until you've seen the movie.
Moisés and John go through the enormous list of comics talent at Emerald City Comic Con. SPOILER ALERT: Moisés met almost all of those named and loads more.

Moisés and John talk about not psyching themselves out, the great response to the show to soon be featured in a mailbag segment, and their regular reads, which they realize they weren't already aware of to this point.
