1951 Down Place
You know what the best part of the Rondo Awards is? The very best part? Ok, the BEST part is the kickass statues given to the winners - but the next best part is looking over the ballot and finding a link to something cool you never knew existed. That's exactly what happened when I started going through the podcasts nominated on this year's ballot. 1951 Down Place is a new podcast dedicated to Hammer Horror films. There are three hosts - Derek Koch aka Brother D, Casey Criswell, and Scott Morris, and they discuss various Hammer films each episode in an informative, entertaining and well produced podcast that I really enjoyed. And to top it off imagine my surprise when, in episode 2, I heard my own name invoked! Extra points for referencing Doc G!
Defintiely check this podcast out, as well as all the nominees on this year's Rondo Awards. It is a fantastic reference place to find out about some cool stuff you never knew existed.
And they give away some kick ass statues, too!
