The Rue Morgue Podcast
The Rue Morgue Podcast is an extension of the Rue Morgue multimedia entity and has continued after the demise of Rue Morgue Radio (a podcast featuring reviews of horror films, music, and events). The Rue Morgue Podcast, hosted by critic Feedback and often featuring Last Chance Lance, mostly contains critiques of horror films, along with interviews, and the occasional panel discussion. This podcast is extremely well curated and focuses listeners on interesting viewpoints, as well as tossing in other odd and offbeat tidbits from the genre. Feedback and Lance almost never agree on a film, which makes listening to them quite entertaining, and guest critiques (such as the episode in which Feedback and Andrea Subissati discuss The Vanishing) provide new ways of thinking about standard film themes.But there are broader and more important reasons to listen to the Rue Morgue Podcast. What is not discussed, or discussed very little, is just as important. Feedback and Lance are interesting and strange people who are unafraid to direct their intellect and skills toward their passions. They lead fascinating and unconventional lives, which takes no small amount of courage in contemporary society. In this age of struggle and fear, this podcast keeps us reminded that life should be more than just survival and toil. We could all have lives that follow our interests and intentions, and we are fortunate to know of people like Feedback and Lance who tirelessly work towards curating underground entertainment. I would highly recommend this podcast to anyone. Anyone.
