Curating post-apocalyptic and dystopian books.

David Liban – Writer, Producer, and Director of A Feral World

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-edjtw-dd2cf0

Welcome to Episode 011 of From the Wastes!  Today’s guest is David Liban.  Writer, producer, and director of the coming-of-age film, A Feral World.  The story of an orphaned boy in a post-apocalyptic world, who meets a grieving woman who is trying to find her lost daughter.

David talks about his experience making the film and what it was like working with his son, filming over the course of four years.  We chat about David’s favorite PA movies and even manage to squeeze some Star Trek in.

David can be found on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, IMDB, and his website.

Trek Talk: Miri

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-a3bdw-d34513

Welcome to Episode 10 of From the Wastes!  This is the first episode of Trek Talk to be featured on FtW. Trek Talk is a group of four Star Trek fans who like to get together and chat about episodes (and movies) from the Star Trek universe.  Join myself, Johnny Staggs, Phantom Dark Dave, and Randy of Here On Mars as we discuss the postapoc episode from the original Star Trek series, Miri.

Trek Talk originated on Dave’s Pop Culture Podcast and when Dave made the decision to end that podcast, he graciously gave me permission to continue the tradition here.  His episodes are still available to listen to and I strongly recommend doing so if you are a fan of classic horror and science fiction.  And please check out his new podcast, The Podcast from Another World, episodes being featured on the Terrible Terror podcast.  Dave will be talking about classic SciFi movies up through the 1980’s.

If you’re a fan of kick ass indie synth rock, make sure to check out Here On Mars.  You can find Randy on Twitter, Youtube, and Bandcamp (links below).

And if you’re a fan of Star Trek and want to connect with one of the nicest guys on the internet, pay Johnny Staggs a visit on the Twitters (link below).

Rutger Hauer

Rutger Hauer passed away July 19, 2019 at the age of 75.  He was one of my favorite actors, starring in some of my favorite films.  I wanted to spend some time talking about what Rutger meant to me, along with couple of these films… Split Second, Blood of Heroes, and Omega Doom.  The man was truly larger than life and made a huge impact on me as a teenager in the 80’s.

 

Rest in peace, Mr. Hauer.
