Here it is, the very first episode of the Junk Fed podcast. Episode 0! Sure to be a collectible. As far as nostalgia goes, what better place to start than Halloween.
On this inaugural episode of the Junk Fed podcast, I’m joined by artist, toy maker, blogger, and fellow nostalgist Tyler Ham to discuss some of our favorite Halloween memories.
We talk Halloween television, share some of our favorite Halloween decorations, feel a little bad for actor Michael Berryman, remember cheap boxed Halloween costumes, get wistful about Halloween Headquarters in the era before Spirit Halloween superstores, and get embarrassed about dressing up as Batman and The Joker respectively in 1989. Also, try as he might, Tyler can’t figure out a way to be headless.
Tyler mentions his vintage ceramic ghost light.
