See Hear Podcast episode 81 - The Stoned Age


Three grown men over the age of 40 (two Brits and an Australian) walked into a podcast to discuss a film about two teenage American guys from the seventies looking to get stoned, drunk and laid.

Welcome to episode 81 of See Hear Podcast – the start of our 8th year.

Tim is still on sabbatical, but Bernie and Maurice were joined by host of The Iron Sequel podcast, James Lawrence, to talk about the 1994 film The Stoned Age. It's a “set in one night” film (a genre unto itself) telling the story of two friends who want to party with a couple of girls visiting LA (was “party” always a verb?). Obviously, there are obstacles (otherwise there's no story). Blue Oyster Cult are a big part of the story (there had to be SOME music connection for it to qualify as a See Hear episode, you see....)

We talk about one-night-films, films that focus on nostalgia, musical true believers, and ask the questions about older films that some will consider problematic in 2021.

Bernie and I are grateful to James for suggesting the film and giving us his time to talk about his love of it. You can search out The Iron Sequel wherever you get podcasts, or from the website https://theironsequel.podbean.com/ You can follow his activities on Twitter at https://twitter.com/blazingmagnums.

We dedicate this episode to the memory of our friend Mike McBeardo McPadden.
