Listen on your preferred podcast app!

This episode of the Grind Pulp Fiction podcast features three stories in line with the feature movie pick: BUBBA HO-TEP.  MangaMatt brings to the table a short work by the guy who went on to write AKIRA called Domu: A Child's Dream. The graphic novel features an old, senile psychic that terrorizes an apartment complex. Andrew opts for the novella that inspired the movie pick, by Grind Pulp Podcast favored author Joe R. Lansdale.  Geronimo gives us an extra serving of pulpy goodness on our train car lunch tray with a weird western tale featuring magicians, mummies, and machine men in The Mummy Train by James Palmer.

Grind Pulp Podcast Episode 34 - Bubba Ho-Tep

You know what sucks? Feeling like you’re getting old. You know what also sucks? Getting forgotten in a retirement home. What doesn't suck? A movie about getting old in a retirement home and fighting a reanimated mummy that wants to eat your soul. This episode tackles the geriatric gem that is BUBBA HO-TEP. Geronimo and Andrew spotlight some of the pitch-perfect performances of Bruce Campbell and Ossie Davis among other featured actors. MangaMatt, meanwhile, regales everyone with the bygone years he spent working in a nursing home and punctuates the unique perspective this movie gives. Yet another episode to pass the time while you're waiting for the nurse to apply lotion to that festering growth.

Feature Presentation: BUBBA HO-TEP (2002) directed by Don Coscarelli

Grind Pulp FICTION Podcast Episode 33.5 - The Umbrella Academy Meets a Burning Necrosaurus Rex

Holy shit balls. This episode goes out there on a seriously silly political tangent with the discussion focusing, for a moment, on authors who think their readers share the same political views as they do. Andrew’s got a bone to pick, but how can he offend GPP listeners? If you’ve heard the guys give each other hell in past episodes, don’t miss this one, especially if you’d like to hear about some good ol’ Grind Pulp!

Feature story picks:
The Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite - by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba
Necrosaurus Rex - by Nicholas Day
Burning Men: A Nathaniel Cade Story - by Christopher Farnsworth
