The Demented Podcast #2 - Reel Dementia.

For the second episode of The Demented Podcast, I'm joined by Rachel of Rachel's Reel Reviews. She introduces herself, and then I give some listener feedback. From this, I segue into "The Challenge," which is much shorter this time around, thanks to suggestions from listeners.

Then we move into our main discussion: movie trailers. We discuss how they've evolved from more "tell"-based trailers that give you tone but no story to "show"-based trailers that give you story but can confuse tone. We also discuss everything from teaser trailers to Red-Band trailers, as well as re-cuts, mash-ups, and parody trailers. I actually had to cut a decent amount from the end of the conversation, as Rachel and I digressed into ramblings about Harry Potter.

And then, of course, we wrap up the show with The Demented Tower. Jess struggled with the lemur's game last episode... will Rachel find an adversary with the lemur, as well--or will she even make it past the old man? Listen to find out!

Current Leaderboard:
1. Jess - 95 Points

As usual, I had to cut a decent amount from this last segment, such as long pauses. However, this time, I screwed up just speaking so many times. I had to re-explain rules and restate things, such as constantly saying "points" instead of "stamina." Anyway, you can listen in the player below or you can find us under iTunes. And please, leave comments or email in!

That being said, enjoy! Thanks goes out to Kevin MacLeod's Incompetech website for great, royalty-free music. And thanks to Google for helping me find a website that will give me free video game audio samples.


  1. Great episode. I had Rachel until she took the bonus, now I'm going to sit at the bottom of the leaderboard forever. Good "The Challenge" too.

  2. Great editing Nick! You can't even tell I took half a century with The Demented Tower!

    After we finished recording, I thought "Man I didn't talk enough," but I did so nevermind.

  3. Just letting you know, as you are a regular commenter on my site, I changed the URL, and the old one does not redirect. I don't know how to make it so it does, and I fear it's too late. So, here's the URL. If you could find it in yourself to pass it along to others, that would be great. I really, really, REALLY, don't want to lose all the readers I've gotten over the past year. Thanks.
