For this week's show and the beginning of "Vinegar Syndrome Month", Brian was very pleased to talk to his old friend and ScreamCast pal Brad Henderson. Brad currently works for Vinegar Syndrome and is a part of all the great work they've been doing of late so this conversation touches on how he came to work at VS, what he does there and highlights a bunch of their titles that he loves (that you should check out). As mentioned, this is the first in a series of several episodes that will highlight Vinegar Syndrome as a label - leading up to their Black Friday sale at the end of the month.

On this very special episode which has been something like a year in the making, good friend of the show and frequent guest Brendon Small returns to talk about two of his favorite music documentaries - CHUCK BERRY: HAIL! HAIL! ROCK N ROLL (1987) and another one called OFF THE CHARTS: THE SONG POEM STORY (2003). Both of these are fantastic documentaries and worth discovering. One gives a portrait of a Rock icon in Chuck Berry and the other shines a light on the song poem industry and the regular folks who send in their lyrics to have them made into songs (and the people that make those songs). If you like docs like AMERICAN MOVIE, HOME MOVIE and VERNON, FLORIDA - then you'll want to seek out OFF THE CHARTS as soon as possible!

HAIL! HAIL! ROCK N ROLL is on Blu-ray from Shout Factory and OFF THE CHARTS is sadly only on DVD (also from Shout).

On this week's episode, Brian is joined again by physical media enthusiast and podcast jack-of-all-trades Dave Eves to talk about three "America" films - all from 1989. First up is AMERICAN RICKSHAW (Cauldron Films) followed by a double feature disc with AMERICAN RAMPAGE and DANGER U.S.A. (Massacre Video). All three films are pretty unique to say the least and one in particular may be the bonkers discovery of the year...
