Retroist Podcast – Episode 166 – Heavy Metal

On this week’s show I start off by talking about how a cool Uncle can sometimes do uncool things by showing young kids confusing films. Then I move into talking about the 1980s animated classic, Heavy Metal. I talk about the cast, the crew, the plot, my favorite segments and more.

I am joined again this week by Rob O’Hara who tells us all about rotoscoping in a brand new “Talking Tech”. Vic Sage is back with “Why Should I Know this Person.” This week Vic talks about Richard Romanus. The Zerbinator has also returned with a brand new “Sounds Retro”, where he talks about the people behind the music in this classic film.

Music on the show was provided by Peachy (the Den of Wales), if you have musical needs, why not contact Peachy at And “like” him on his Facebook Page.

    Enjoyed the show, but how can you talk about Elmer Bernstein’s score without bringing up his use of the ondes Martenot?!
