End of the Year Megasode with Lucas Hardwick
End of the Year Megasode with Lucas Hardwick
EPISODE 200! Film critic and screenwriter Lucas Hardwick returns to the show for an extended MEGASODE with Alex chatting about film criticism, horror, Joe Bob Briggs, collectibles, comics, ANDOR and STAR WARS fan exhaustion, the obsession with backstory in the sci-fi genre these days, STAR TREK PICARD, the Inglorious Treksperts podcast, and so much more. Find out why Lucas hates the "so bad its good" moniker and the charm and heart of gold he seeks (and usually finds) in every creative project.  This is a long conversation with occasional raucous bits (mostly from Alex after two glasses of wine!), but we hope you genre fans will be here for it!
