It’s one on one dork dialog this episode. Dana Gould  (follow him on twitter @danajgould ) is a great comic, actor and writer and one of the first comics I knew who committed to what I call, at this writing, dorkiness, in his act. His material is always personal and family related but it also has always gone to his favorite films and games. His love of Science Fiction and Horror has a nice sense of depth in his act, and when you talk to him. This is a great episode. Enjoy!


Lucha Va Voom – show Dana and Blaine Capatch crack wise on regularly.

Communion: A True Story – Whitley Strieber

Planet of the Apes Statues - Lawgiver, Ceasar (from Battle For The Planet of the Apes)


Dana Gould recommended watching and reading:

Sherlock – BBC One – I can’t find it on BBC America
Jekyll – BBC One by the same guy, also not currently airing… but DVDs abound from Netflix in both cases.

HBO Upcoming, he recommends: Game of Thrones


And… when I pressed him for old Dracula movies:

The Night Stalker Pilot – 1972

Dark Shadows

Horror of Dracula

Brides of Dracula


Famous Monsters of Filmland


It’s a new year – feel free to donate if you haven’t. And… take care of each other out there. For crying out loud. Jackie
