Podcast Recommendation: Video Palace
“When video collector Mark Cambria watches a mysterious VHS tape, he begins talking in his sleep in a language that doesn’t exist. Mark and his girlfriend Tamra set out to investigate the tape’s origin and find themselves caught up in a web of conspiracy, occult, and dread surrounding a legendary video store with a sinister purpose beyond imagining.”
Being a reformed VHS collecting fanatic myself and horror fan, it was an obvious choice to listen to Video Palace from Shudder. The chemistry between the two leads is excellent with solid acting throughout the ten episodes. The entire production features quality sound design (Jeremy Lee) and scoring (Michael Teoli). Recording was done at Iceman Audio with post work done at Diablo Sound. They wanted to keep the sound natural and utilized a Zoom H4N, a popular tool for podcasters. This series hits all of the geek buttons for me and tells an interesting story along the way. Highly recommended for horror fans, tape collectors, people who get nostalgic about VHS, and those looking for entertaining fiction podcasts.
Video Palace: Created by Nick Braccia, produced by Michael Monello & Nick Braccia, written by Bob Rock and Ben DeRosa, and stars Chase Williamson & Devin Sidell.
