Lee, Tanner, Nick, Bobby and Mike celebrate the life of and career of recently departed filmmaker Albert Pyun by discussing his sophmore effort, Radioactive Dreams.

Bobby and Mike are joined by Eddie the Axe (Bloodybits Podcast) and Matt Anderson to discuss the return of Grindbin All-Star Joseph Merhi (The Sweeper).

Militias? Government experiments? Houseboat Sensei? Pool Table felt carpeting? This movie has it all... and more!
