1 - So. Ive known you for years, you always seem to be doing SOMETHING. What are you doing at the moment?
Hello! At the moment I am living the dream, like a superhero by day I work hard as a part of the NHS and by night I'm Ramrod, movie reviewer and podcast host for '60 minutes with'!!!
2 - Being a co host for the podcast 60 minutes must be exciting! For people who havent heard it, tell us what its about!
'60 minutes with' is an entertainment podcast and we also do hour long interview episodes (hence the title). There's Dave Robinson who is a podcast legend now after already establishing the podcast '80's picturehouse' and interviewing Hollywood royalty such as John Carpenter & Ernie Hudson and Chris Jellyman who is also co host on the hugely successful gaming podcast 'The same coin'. Not to mention the amazing 'spankee spangler’ she's also a frequent guest host and our behind the scenes wizard. Who keeps us in with all our DVD companies such as Arrow video & 101 films. We do push the boat out and go off on tangents frequently but always aim to inform... through a haze of beer usually.
3 - Whats the best / funniest moment youve had doing the podcast?
....well.... I'm kind of the 'Drinker' of the trio, during recordings we NEVER take breaks as our episodes go out unedited. Sometimes I need to relieve myself while recording so I've been known to fill anything at hand while still being eloquent and entertaining. As for our best moment, I'd say it's going worldwide with downloads in over 60 countries. We are growing so well we even get sponsors now! Fresher Foods who fulfil our need for pork scratchings!
4 - Are there any downsides to doing podcasts?
The only downsides to doing podcasting are.... none at all!! I get to talk about films, games, TV, music, write all about it too and get drunk simultaneously. If it only paid....
5 - So you've been on a bluray as fan commentary? That sounds really awesome! How did that happen?
I was guest host on 80s picturehouse and as a laugh Dave, myself and Thom (the other regular host) would record fan commentary episodes for obscure films, one of which was forgotten action film 'Samurai cop'. Through the podcast and it's popularity we became friends with the films star and as the film got a bluray re release in the US we were asked to put our fan commentary on the disc! I'm still overwhelmed. It's incredible. From a mess around on a Sunday to an American bluray!
6 - So I also hear youre going to making a feature film debut! Samurai Cop 2, tell us about the film!
After we gained connections to the stars and film makers of Samurai cop we learned that a sequel was going into production obviously we never thought that we would be approached to film a cameo to be featured in the final film. As we live in Wales, LA was a bit of a commute so using Daves team from his lecturing job we wrote and filmed our scene and shipped it off to the director to cut us into the action. It's going to be a mix of modern action and apparently sci-fi too!
7 - Tommy Wiseau, (The Room) is in this film, did you meet him?
Is he as awesome as I think he is? Haha Tommy! He's a bit of a cult hero isn't he. We didn't get to meet him yet! Hopefully at the London premium later this year.
8 - What was your best memory working on Samurai Cop 2?
Getting to be a part of a Hollywood movie is a dream come true. We were lucky enough to have a professional team behind us and to actually get to act out lines I've written is just insane really. As a lifelong film buff I can die happy now...
