BONUS EPISODE: Starship Troopers with Paul M. Sammon!

Just a taste of our Patreon offerings, for anyone who is on the fence.

Dan, Katie, and Liam talk with Hollywood legend and film historian Paul M. Sammon about all the bug-hunting details of this classic film from Dutch director Paul Verhoeven.

Paul Sammon has been in the business for a long time and was kind enough to sit down with us and tell us stories about his experiences in the film industry, the history of the film, epic mustaches, and more!

He has published dozens of books and has been involved in the making of a slew of films, including writing Future Noir (the making of Blade Runner), The Making of Starship Troopers, articles in The Los Angeles Times, Cinefex, and Cinefatastique among others; RoboCop, Robocop II, Platoon, Blue Velvet, Conan the Barbarian, The Silence of the Lambs, the list goes on.
