We welcome comic creator Michael Loniewski to the show to first help us look back into pop culture history for this week’s Retro Roundtable. It was this week in 1982 that Metallica played their first live show, so we decided to talk all things heavy metal. We share all of our experiences in the mosh pit, what it is about metal music that delivers so much energy, and wonder how things could possibly get out of control at a Cage the Elephant concert.

 
Then we turn our attention to Michael to talk about his comic Gung Ho. A fugitive ape, fighting to redeem his militant past, must battle vengeful superheroes and bigoted humans as he races to stop his radicalized mentor fused with dangerous powers. Head over to Comixology to get your copy. A 55 page comic book for a dollar? Who wouldn’t?!

What If? Science Fiction Inspired Technology? Well of coarse it did, but to what extent? We welcome Greg Smith to the show this week to help us look at some of the items we use in our day to day lives and see if their origins are rooted in science fiction. Automatic doors, cell phones, smart watches, what would have they evolved to without sic-fi to help along the designs? What kind of inventions can we expect tomorrow that are inspired from the science fiction we have today? We tackle these questions and more. Let us know if we missed something on Twitter!

Caned Air #221 Chicago Rot

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/6165703/height/100/width/480/thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/legacy/tdest_id/316455″ height=”100″ width=”480″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

We welcome film makers Dorian Weinzimmer and Brant McCrea to the show to first help us remember some of the cities across pop culture who have met their demise in this weeks Retro Roundtable. We’ve watched for years as cinema has destroyed some of the largest cities around the world, and even some places that only exist in fiction. Come see if we name the first city to come to your mind!

Then we turn our attention over to Dorian and Brant to talk about their film, Chicago Rot. After years of rotting in Joliet, Les, a wrongfully imprisoned street legend known as “The Ghoul,” is released into a mad search through Chicago’s back alleys for the man who slaughtered his mother and robbed him of his soul.
Aided by enigmatic benefactors, he must delve beneath the city into a modern labyrinth of gutters whose tendrils have grown deep while he was gone.

What unfolds is a desperate tale of brute force tragedy set in the supernatural underworld of Chicago, where heroes are reduced to horror-shows, villains dream of their own demise, and good and evil prove to be antiquated concepts.

This is a movie like non other and provides a truly original experience. Be sure to check out the film at ChicagoRot.com!
