Enjoy Stuff: A TechnoRetro Podcast

Grab your wooden stakes and garlic because this week we are looking at Vampires! Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Nosferatu, we discuss some of the standout vampire movies in cinematic history, plus some of our sentimental favorites. Turns out there's enough to Enjoy even if you're going to live forever!


We’ve been fascinated with vampires for a really long time. But a German Expressionism film from 100 years ago called Nosferatu made a long lasting impression on the genre. It’s time to Enjoy some of those bloodsuckers!

What we’re Enjoying

Shua finally received his comic book from Jack in the Box called The Return of Mark Hamill. This free souvenir is a total blast. A really funny interpretation of Hamill’s early job and eventual return as a Jack in the Box drive thru employee. He’s also been playing around with the new feature on iOS 16 that automatically selects a person, isolating them from the background. Jay has been indulging in Advil from his big move. But also catching up on the brilliant Star Trek series Lower Decks. A fun, creative, animated take on the Trek universe.

Enjoy Movies!

Do you like your meat rare? Are you more of a night person? Do you really like capes? You may be a vampire. From early stories like Bram Stoker’s Dracula to Jim Carey’s dated, but fun, Once Bitten, they have been a great way to tell scary stories in movies. We talk about some standout films and ones that we enjoyed growing up.
