This week we’re #blessed to be joined by Dead & Lovely’s Hollywood Steve Spratling as we discuss the infamous Max Headroom signal interference incident and other acts of what Mark has dubbed “benign anarchy.”
[0:00] The mystery of the Dyatlov Pass Incident is potentially solved in part by technology from the movie Frozen
[21:00] We talk about Steve, the Dead and Lovely podcast, and our takes on trashing bad movies
[31:45] CoRri gives the history of the Max Headroom character
[45:00] We talk the signal interference incident and what it would be like to experience it and other such events
[1hr9m] Dead and Lovely’s next episode will be about the incredible His House! And make sure you hit us up on social media with ideas for our next watch-along. The theme is remakes!
If anyone can identify the show in which John Madden turns into a Gargoyle, please let us know so we can help poor Steve
