"What's that unnerving hammering sound?" you (probably don't) ask.
Why, it's episode 2!
Where J G Byrne and Dan Byrne-Smith (the brother-in-law) discuss things pertaining to, y'know, the film in question. Which is, of course, the not-at-all Quatermass-like X The Unknown (1956). Or, as I like to call it – The Most Lamentable Tragedy of Spider and Haggis.
Chatter about the origins of Pop-Tarts!
Tear-stained tributes to Anthony Newley's melted face!
Cynicism regarding the bona fides of Scottish clergymen!
Oh and here's more info on Dan's exciting new collaboration with the Horniman: http://www.horniman.ac.uk/get_involved/news/horniman-announces-an-exciting-new-collaboration-with-ual
And here's more info about Traces of Modernity - his steamy and pulsating book: http://www.zero-books.net/books/traces-of-modernity
Theme tune (& musical mixing) is, as always, by the mighty David Blake.
And the noodly electronic bits you hear are from Linthia 2 - Dan's own composition.
