Enjoy Stuff: A TechnoRetro Podcast

Aliens have been a part of movies since we shot ourselves to the moon in 1902. They are the perfect tool for an allegory about our society. Whether our visitors from another world are benevolent or hell-bent on world domination, it's irresistible to sit back and watch. Jovial Jay and Shua test their knowledge of those cinematic extraterrestrials on Enjoy Stuff!


Grab your tinfoil hats and welcome signs as we look back at the history of aliens in movies.

What we’re Enjoying

Jay enjoyed the inspirational true story of the American Samoa soccer team called Next Goal Wins. Taika Watiti has given us a nice group of underdogs to root for with his typical brand of laughs too. Shua has been revisiting the Monsterverse Godzilla movies following his viewing of Monarch: Legacy of Monsters. It’s fun to watch our cities get smooshed. 


Sci-Fi Saturdays

This week on Sci-Fi Saturdays Jay tackles Star Wars Episode II Attack of the Clones. It’s a movie that many of us are familiar with, and he digs deep with insights and observations that make it a pleasure to revisit. He has also been updating locations from Marvel TV and movies, including Echo, the Agents of SHIELD, and Agent Carter series. Play around with the interactive map on MCULocationScout.com. Plus, you can tune in to  SHIELD: Case Files where Jay and Shua break down each episode of the Echo series and more.  


Enjoy Movies! 

Ack ack ack! Which means “We come in peace!” At least that’s what I assume those little green men are saying. Over the years, nay decades, nay CENTURY we have enjoyed exploring the possibilities of what other lifeforms could be out ….there!


And our imagination has covered the spectrum from friendly ETs who just want to share our Reese’s Pieces to Martians that just want to use us as fertilizer (well, I hope you got your vaccinations creeps!) We look at some memorable alien stories throughout history and what has influenced (or been influenced by) them.


Next the boys play a game of GarbleBlitz: Alien Edition. Each give one word clues and the other has to guess the alien or movie they came from. Join us for some extraterrestrial fun and bring that disco organ so you can engage in some riveting musical conversations. 


Would you have gotten on that ship with Roy Neary? What could we send to Mars besides women? First person that emails me with the subject line, “We come in peace” will get a special mention on the show.  Let us know. Come talk to us in the Discord channel or send us an email to EnjoyStuff@RetroZap.com
