Episode 129 - Labor Day Workers' Soda Review with Zombie Nighmare's Frank Dietz

The Damn Dirty Drive-In

Rise up, comrades, and join the Revival League’s “Labor Day Worker’s Soda Review!” The “Gang of Four” -- Greg, Ron, Robb and Erica (plus special guest Frank “Zombie Nightmare” Dietz) -- sample sodas from across Eastern Europe. The results are anything but revolutionary. It’s a Long March as the gang questions the means of soda production, all while sipping such Iron Curtain flavors as tarragon, elderberry, bitter lemon, sour cherry, quinine and anise. Soft drinks from Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Georgia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina all march across everyone’s taste buds, until their poor palates start Stalin out. This Labor Day Special certainly left its Marx. The consensus: most of these beverages would be improved with a stiff shot of vodka. All this, and a long winter’s bread line, on this week’s episode of the Revival League Podcast!(This podcast does not represent Alternaversal, Shout Factory or the Kickstarter campaign in any official capacity).

Episode 103 - Frank Dietz

The Damn Dirty Drive-In

Frank Dietz is known in “Mystery Science Theater 3000” circles for his role as Detective Frank Sorrell in “Zombie Nightmare.” But chances are, if you saw and loved a Disney animated movie of the late ‘90s or early ‘00s, Dietz played a part as a talented animator: “Hercules,” “Mulan,” “Tarzan,” “Fantasia 2000,” “Atlantis: The Lost Empire.” Dietz also reminisces over working with Adam West (“Batman 66”, “Family Guy”). Ryan is out sick this week, so stand-up comic Robb Maynard joins Greg and Kate in the studio. The podcast gang celebrates Rifftrax’s successful Kickstarter to bring “Krull” and “Space Mutiny” to the big screen. And in the Mini Soda Review, the podcast gang drinks “Old Dominion,” a delicious root beer from Virginia. In “Music! Science! Cats!,” Kate explains how chimerism fuses embryos into single organisms that are half-and-half rarities. Robb and Greg review the Rachel McAdams/Jason Bateman comedy, “Game Night.” All this, and a BBC nature special where Sir David Attenborough says, “fuck it,” and fracks a sperm whale for its oil, on this week’s episode of the Revival League Podcast!
