256: Exorcising Our Demons With Los Espookys

Wednesday, 19 June

Comedy writer/performers Ana Fabrega and Julio Torres have brought HBO a new sitcom about a "horror group" that creates practical horror effects for ridiculous reasons (Fred Armisen's hardly in it, we swear!), and Omar Gallaga has returned to discuss it with us! Around The Dial clicks through Younger, Comedy Central's new sketch show Alternatino With Arturo Castro, the upcoming Amazon series Undone, and the third seasons of Claws and Jessica Jones. For her Extra Credit topic, Corey asks us each to choose a title from the AFI's top 100 films and turn it into a TV series. Omar presents the Atlanta episode "Teddy Perkins" for the Canon. Once we've recovered (barely), it's on to the week's Winner and Loser and a Game Time with a lot of cipherin'. Put on your werewolf teeth and join us!

The EHG gang have been recording this podcast for almost a decade now. In podcasting terms, that makes us positively Methuselahian. Since the start of EHG, our listeners have asked if we had a tip jar or donation system and we'd look at each other and say surely that is a joke, people don't pay other people to do podcasts. We'd email them back "Ha ha ha, good one, Chet" and go about our business. Now we are told this is a real thing that real nice people do. Value for value? In today's topsy turvy world? It's madness but that good kind of madness, like when you wake up a 3:15am and clean your house. Or something. In all seriousness, we are humbled by your continued prodding to get a Patreon page up for EHG and here it is! Extra Hot Great on Patreon
