Nuking the Podcat - Episode 4: Lone Wolf McQuade
Welcome back to Episode 4 of Nuking the Podcat featuring the film Lone Wolf McQuade starring Chuck Norris and David Carradine.
No…you haven’t missed anything. Yes, there was an Episode 3 that focused on From Beyond…but a mix of technology and automotives got in the way and…well, here we are. Anyway, so much for the monthly goal, but yeah, we are going to try and have them a bit more regularly for 2017. [And like all New Year’s resolutions… - Ed.]
Two things to note here in the sound is that my mic stand broke just prior to recording, so there is an occasional thump as I’m trying to keep the stand from falling apart. I’m not the only one to blame though…because at some point while listening, you’re going to think that your phone is vibrating and I assure you it isn’t. Charles left his phone on the table during recording and was receiving a bunch of texts…and that sound comes through pretty clearly.
