Melissa Kaercher again dons the shades with us as we take a loving look at Carpenter's rowdy 80s classic. We also take some time to recap the glorious peak that was Carpenter in the 80s as we ready ourselves for the final leg of this project. Check it out here.
Fun fact: If you notice that my audio sounds a little different and a bit more stilted than usual in the first 25-ish minutes, there's a reason for that. My audio didn't exist. Partway through recording the episode, we realized we'd encountered the glaring technical error of me not pressing record on my end, and Skype's recorder (good riddance, Powergramo) completely failed to give us a backup. Nonetheless, as we had everyone elses' audio, we pressed on, and I was able to fill in those missing portions by blowing up their tracks so I could faintly make out my own voice through their headphones, thus giving me a guide to re-record that portion of my end. It doesn't fix me being a stiff actor, nor that I'm suddenly talking quietly because it was the middle of the night and I didn't want to wake people up, but hey, we still managed to save the episode instead of just scrapping it and starting over again. Which is what happened next month. Stay tuned for that!
