Chris and Mike do Invasion of the Bee Girls

People who’ve followed my strange blogging career know that I have a real soft spot for the nutjob 1973 sci-fi flick Invasion of the Bee Girls. Its delirious mad-science transformation sequence was the subject of one of my early guest posts over at ErosBlog and I covered the subject again in my Thaumatophile Manifesto.

Recently I discovered that a pair of film buffs named Mike Wood and Chris Mann have started up a podcast devoted to cinematic exploitation fare, covering some pretty wild stuff, like the hard-to-forget 1973 softcore comedy The Cheerleaders and Russ Meyer’s over-the-top sexploitation opus Supervixens (which I also made the object of some serious ErosBlog love). So naturally, I had to issue to them a Twitter plea:

And that generated a promise:

Today, promise delivered on

Hot damn! The guys snark it up good (Invasion is, fundamentally, a bad movie…) but enjoyed every minute of it. Thanks, guys!

I enjoy this podcast immensely, and think many people who follow this blog will as well. Show these funny, hardworking podcasters some love, guys. Add the Grindbin Podcast to your podcast app of choice, or visit their website, or follow them on Twitter. It will be fun.
