This week trash cinema aficionado Matt Carman (I Love Bad Movies) joins me for a special episode I'm calling "(Bad) Movies My Friends Have Never Seen." Will Matt survive watching the notorious Stallone/Travolta joint Staying Alive for the first time?
Matt and I ponder whether Tony Manero is the worst character in popular fiction and try to make sense of his starring turn in the insane Broadway extravaganza Satan's Alley. Plus Matt shares his thoughts on the difference between a "good/bad" and "bad/bad" movie and we spot a Miami Vice homage a year before the debut of Miami Vice. Freaky!
Check out I Love Bad Movies, the zine that Matt does with his wife Kseniya Yarosh of the Bonnie and Maude podcast. Brooklynites will also want to check out the Brooklyn Zine Fest which they organize every year.

Bob Zmuda's stories about Saturday Night Fever/Staying Alive screenwriter Norman Wexler are insane.
