Podcast: Joel Hodgson, Frank Conniff and J. Elvis Weinstein of Cinematic Titanic and Mystery Science Theater 3000

| 1 comment

Joel Hodgson, Frank Conniff and J. Elvis Weinstein are 3/5ths of Cinematic Titanic. The series of DVDs and digital downloads combines old, terrible films with comic commentary. If the description sounds familiar, you might be thinking of the long-running cult comedy classic Mystery Science Theater 3000, of which Hodgson was the original host. We talk with Joel, Frank and J. Elvis about their careers in comedy, why they got the band back together, and more. We even delve into their relationship with Rifftrax, a similar outfit run by some other MST3K expats.

This is one of the best interviews with Joel, J. Elvis, and Frank that I've ever heard. Thank you so much for interviewing them. Really entertaining and informative.I really loved listening to Joel describe his creative experiences throughout his career. He has such a great imagination and his work has been a source of inspiration for me. And of course it's wonderful to hear TV's Frank and Beeper as well ;). Very creative and funny group. I absolutely love Frank's acting in Cartoon Dump and would love to see more of that. Can we get it packaged in with the next CT DVD? Pleeeeease? Also, great job by the host! It's nice when the interviewer is so well spoken and thoroughly understands the topic and interviewees.
