Bob has a delightful chat with the two indelible hosts of Baltimore's longest running cult movie screening event, Mondo Baltimore! Ros and Michael have been the "faces" of Mondo for around four years now, including the online-version during the covid years. Even though Bob has been a member for over a decade, he asks them to point out all that is great about Mondo and why you should go (if you get the chance.) Also, everyone makes a list of their "Top 5 Movies Where Someone Gets Frozen." Watch this episode with FULL VIDEO on YouTube! Mondo Baltimore's Official Website!
Bob is joined once again by the great, wonderful, talented mad scientist Johannes Grenzfurthner!

 Bob once again uses Shrimp Night! to expose his forgotten internet-radio failures, this time focusing on two "podcasts that never were" with two of his best friends, Huey Hesson and Mike Stettes! Backrow Bastards was a DVD commentary podcast hosted by Bob and Mike, around five unreleased episodes existed (they think.) The Chet Program Program with Wet and Chet was Bob and Huey's attempt to try and make a whole show off a very weird name, it lasted one episode, which was released to the public and then promptly abandoned! The guys walk down their personal memory lane of posting content on the internet since the 2000s, celebrating the few things that worked and cracking up over the litany of things that absolutely did not. Listen to Disco Spy by Hestus (a song made by Huey and Mike) HERE! 
Bob has a grand old time laughing it up with his good buddy Brandon Hardesty! Brandon is a super talented writer and actor who snowballed to fame in the early days of YouTube. His videos led to appearances on Jimmy Kimmel and David Letterman, acting in movies with the likes of William H. Macy, Nick Swardson and The Scorpion King and portraying the live-action version of Eric Cartman on South Park! Somehow years later he ended up in one of Bob's short films, and thus their friendship was forged in fire! Oh also they talk about their Top 10 Favorite Parenting Movies. Check out Brandon's original Youtube Channel HERE! Watch Brandon in Bob's short Timecrowave HERE! Enjoy Brandon's Essay videos on THE BACK FOCUS!
Once again Bob wields the nebulous format of SHRIMP NIGHT! to placate his "podcasting midlife crisis."  Years ago Sarah Gorman, Becky Hackerman, Mike Walls and Bob were the co-hosts of a horror movie podcast that only lasted a handful of episodes. The podcast was called NOW SLAYING, it ended pretty quick. Becky and Sarah join Bob to discuss memories, why it stopped so abruptly and to relive the old glory days by reviewing the water-logged, found-footage horror film THE DEEP HOUSE! Check out Becky's band INFINITE PIZZA on BANDCAMP and FACEBOOK! Watch this episode with video HERE!
Bob yaks it up with his friend, filmmaker, YouTuber, live-streamer, Misfits historian...Jeff Frumess! Since Jeff has so kindly had Bob on his YouTube channel several times, Bob returns the favor to Jeff with the longest Shrimp Night episode ever! The boys talk about balding, the technical aspects of podcast streaming and run down their top 10 favorite comedy directors of all time! Watch this episode on YouTube with video HERE!

Bob decides to use the amorphous premise of SHRIMP NIGHT! to begin to revisit what the hell happened to his long defunct podcasts. First on the list: The gents from A MOUND OF THUNDER! Bob, Huey, Rex and John gather for some closure on the 15 episode run of their rage filled show that started because of a mistake and ended because of several mistakes! The guys also find time to give one last comic book movie review by complaining about Marvel's THE ETERNALS! All episodes of A MOUND OF THUNDER are available on the Thunder Grunt Podcast feed, here's a direct link! Watch this episode with video HERE!
Bob has a long overdue chat with Jim McDonough, the super talented filmmaker responsible for incredible short films such as Manicorn, Tiny Clones, Darling Pet Monkey and many more! Jim gives a verbal sneak peak at turning Manicorn into a feature film, but first the guys walk each other through the ups and downs of early filmmaking life, how they let go of giving power to "view counts" and Jim is kind enough to read a list of negative reviews posted under his movies by all the well-adjusted people on the internet!  You can watch all of Jim's movie on his YouTube channel RIGHT HERE!
Bob has a chat with a writer he considers one of the most enthusiastic and positive forces in modern film criticism, Nick Clement! A contributor to both Variety and We Are Cult, his writing can also be found on the limited edition Arrow Films releases of both True Romance and Legend. Prior to this recording Bob asked Nick if he would like to discuss 1990s action films, listen up for Bob's actual shock as Nick details the fact that he actually worked under the likes of Jerry Bruckheimer, Tony Scott and Michael Bay during the productions of some of their biggest movies!
