Gordcast
Now in it's XXth? year, Gordie Adams' Gordcast covers music, comic books, movies, television, memories, nostalgia, current events and whatever else comes up in conversations with friends and sometimes in an informal interview with someone Gordie wants to know more about. Fellow aficionado Paul Bertolino joined as co-host of the Gordcast for the majority of episodes and along the way, Gordie welcomed a roster of special guests. After a hiatus he is back and invites you to hang out with the Gordcast for entertaining conversation and good company. Join us and have fun! Bonus episodes of The Gordcast Shuffle (wherein Gordie and Paul each gave three random spins to their vast music collections and talk in wonderful detail about the songs that show-up) are included in the same feed.

GORDIE welcomes back THEA GILIEN to talk about all sorts of things, including being a guest on podcasts.

THEA'S wine history (...she might be snobby at times), she owns a vineyard and surfs, WAAAAAAY to much car talk, GORDIE has eaten quiche, vampire talk, alternative jobs and youtube as a soothing balm.

THE PODCAST REVIEW SHOW, FLIXWATCHER, ANNE RICE, FORD PINTO, GROUNDHOG DAY, DAVID TENNANT, NEIL GAIMAN, AROUND COMICS, SPEAK EASILY Vs. THE EIGHTIES, QUEEN and THE POLICE.

GORDIE welcomes JON FROST to Gordomatic Industries!

JON works on Gordie's route and has become a quick friend and the best way to get to know someone more than five minutes at a time, is to have a conversation on a mic.

This has A TON of BAY AREA METAL up front, bookended with A TON of Wine geek talk at the end. This is the longest episode in a long time, so use your ffwd and pause button at your discretion.

"One Last Trick?"

BRETT, AUDRA & GORDIE are finished with the podcast, but have become friends even though the whole thing was just a joke!

This episode has it all. Impressions, singing, fencing, backwards aura control, THREE'S COMPANY, THE OMEGA MAN, FRIENDS, blooper reels, good deaths, rhyming, RICK BAKER, EXCALIBUR (..duh), sequels and the episode finishes with the origin of COUNT FINK!

Thanks to all for listening and spread the ZARDOZ word everywhere you go!

AUDRA, BRETT and GORDIE are trapped in a crystal, yet seem to be able to stay inside ZED's aura.

Lots of JAMES BOND talk, tabernacle acting, Isadora Duncan, Comic book ads, philosophical babble, Crystal radios and cardboard submarines, as we head toward the final episode next week.

GORDIE ADAMS hosts his own take on the MOVIES BY MINUTE movement, but instead of breaking down JOHN BOORMAN'S ZARDOZ, one minute at a time, he and his co-hosts BRETT STILLO and AUDRA WOLFMAN break it down a dozen minutes at a time, while getting to know each other through the beauty of podcasting.

If you already know ZARDOZ, you're ready and willing. If not, watch it, join us and judge for yourself how awesome, absurd and iconic this great film from 1974 is still worth watching.
