Ep201: SHARKNADO in The Asylum!

Today, The Kicking the Seat Podcast plunges chainsaw-first into the eye of a Sharknado with series writer Thunder Levin! Next Tuesday (March14th), the Music Box Theatre kicks off a new season of the Field Museum's "Field Trips: Cinema Science" series, with a screening of the original Sharknado, followed by an on-stage discussion between Thunder and Kevin Feldheim, the A. Watson III Manager of the Pritzker Laboratory for Molecular Systematics and Evolution.

Ahead of that, Ian spoke with Thunder about the Sharknado phenomenon, his own weird journey as a filmmaker, and how the infamous "mockbuster" factory The Asylum creates movies like Sharknado!

Also, Ian offers a correction about Shout Factory's Blu-ray release of Colors; remembers to provide links from Episode 200's Get Out discussion;* and shares some thoughts on three spectacular short films debuting this weekend at the Music Box's Peace on Earth Film Festival.

Episode 201 is a podcast wrapped in a sharknado, wrapped in an oil-nado, wrapped in a boulder-nado!
