Warp Zone Podcast: October 1988

Remember last month when we boasted that it was the longest podcast we had ever recorded? Well, it turns out we broke the record again! No, we’re not purposely trying to make these podcasts go on forever, but sometimes we get a little carried away. Hopefully you don’t mind! As for our Energy Tank feature presentation, this month we go completely off topic by discussing our favorite horror movies from 1988 and prior. Remember, everyone’s entitled to one good scare on Halloween!



We hope you enjoy our trip down memory lane. As always, be sure to check out our Warp Zone section on the site for news, reviews, and more written as if from that time period. Don’t forget to send us your questions and suggestions to be featured on a future show via an e-mail (please put Warp Zone in the subject line) or by getting in touch with us via Twitter. As always, please rate us in iTunes. Plus, you can listen to us on Google Play Music!
