Schlock’s Podcast #22 – The Apocalypse, Trojan, Fury Road

Welcome listeners to another edition of the Schlock podcast… Wait, what do you mean that,  following the previous edition, you thought Teodor and Marco were devoured by werewolves that were also Lovecraftian horrors? The three month delay was actually caused by their wanting to have a break! Of course. Either way the podcast is back, and this time

It’s November, or as I’ve heard it being called, Noshavember. Which is fine enough, although in my case every month is basically Noshavember…er. In fact my beard’s grown so much that it has now gained enough sentience (as well as strong enough opinions) to host AND edit this month’s POP CULTURE DESTRUCTCAST. DESTRUCTION NEWS   Just a

Schlock Talks Addendum | Anna Tambour & Teodor Reljic

In a Schlock first, author Anna Tambour and the magazine’s co-editor Teodor Reljic talk shop about their latest novels: in Tambour’s case, the sophomore release Crandolin, and Reljic’s debut novel, Two. *  Teodor Reljic: There is a mad energy to Crandolin which almost makes one feel as though it may have been written in one

Schlock Talks | Greg Bossert

Schlock’s Podcast #19 – World Fantasy Convention, Consecration, Satin

Hi, and welcome to Schlock’s podcast. Yes, that podcast. Or rather, this one. The one you’ll be listening right now! Yes, its schedule has been erratic – to say the least – but on the last day of 2013 the Schlock hivemind gathered around and solemnly swore that podcasts will be at least a bit more regular. How about that, huh?

The August 2012 Issue

It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backwards – here at Schlock, we’ve come to encourage a little license with the past. Berislav Blagojevic’s haunting recollection of the Yugoslav Wars becomes a snapshot of a disintegrating country’s elusive identity. Meanwhile, P. Keith Boran’s The Strangest of Angels transports us to a conflict that’s

Schlock’s Podcast #12 – Dracula, Pop Culture Destruction – April 2012

We’d like to think Nosferatu’s Count Orlok is watching over this podcast with pride. April – is it really (groan) the cruellest month? Probably not – but this month’s subject of podcast discussion is not the nicest of characters… Count Dracula! Joining Teodor, Marco and Kris is Bram Stoker scholar Charmaine Tanti, and the subject
