AWOC: There's always room for Giall-O

10/20/2021
A few weeks ago all three of us converged from across the country to attend “GialloFest” at the Riverside Drive-In in Vandergrift, Pennsylvania. In this pod we discuss the 8(!) lurid, murderous and artistically minded Italian slasher flicks, as well as some stories about the trip and the fun had along the way. It’s a super sized podcast along with some recommendations that will cover more than you ever wanted to know about the horror phenomenon that is “Giallo”. Thanks for...

AWOC: Murder Ballads and Teenage Tragedy: Vol. 1

8/6/2021
Every now and then, art can break through the noise and clutter and punch you in the face, which is what happened this week. In the rare music episode we discuss murder, ballads, teenage tragedy, love songs involving sharks and songs that beg the question "wait, what?" It's an all storytelling episode and the tales of woe are INTENSE! Plus recommendations. We would love to hear your favorite murder ballads on the socials at Atomic Weight of Cheese. We would also love for you to leave an...

AWOC: Miss Minutes wants you to be sure and listen, mmkay?

7/11/2021
We are the Atomic Weight of cheese and we are burdened with glorious purpose. In this episode, we take a look at the first few episodes of the Douglas Adams meets Terry Gilliam meets Stan Lee abomination that is Loki, and take some time to touch on the other Marvel shows on Disney Plus as well. There’s some good stuff in there and, like usual, we get more nerdy than you require. But so do these shows. Follow us at @AWOCPodcast on Twitter, like us on Facebook and leave us a review. Find...

AWOC: Goofy Moments. Goofy Genres

5/31/2021
With Steph and Shannon launching a new podcast about Dungeons and Dragons, this week we’re talking about the wildest genre out there.

AWOC: Superturds

5/17/2021
A long time ago in a culture far, far away, some of our favorite comedians did a thing. This thing, which was not a good thing, is from an era of the past, when the word “nerd” meant something different than it does today. Join us as we take a look at the little scene pilot to “Supernerds” which leads to a conversation about what the hell that was, what it was trying to be and what it means for culture at large today. It’s a good conversation about a bad idea and we hope you enjoy...

AWOC: Would you like some... Ovaltine?

4/11/2021
Here at the Atomic Weight of Cheese we love the little things - a comfortable chair, a great conversation and character actors who continue to amaze us. In this episode we talk about one such actor, Cloris Leachman, who recently passed. From her well-known comedy to her lesser known movies of the week, we give a great character actor a proper send off. We’d love to hear your favorite Leachman performance or your favorite character actor moments. Follow us at @AWOCPodcast on Twitter, like...

To cheese or not to cheese, that is...a question. I suppose. This episode, in honor of Town Hall Theater’s production of FantasticLand, we turn our eye to those who have treaded the boards and share our favorite theater experiences and what we hope to see when we get back in the seats sometime soon. Hey, the pandemic can’t last forever. Plus Chad once got to meet Trigger the horse and sing Happy Trails! SHOW NOTES Links mentioned in this episode: Town Hall Theatre Production of...

AWOC: Restoration Time!

3/2/2021
Steph has a new passion of restoring pieces of furniture and to celebrate, we are dwelling on the word “restoration”. What pieces of cinema speak “restoration” to us? Is it movies about art? TV shoes about passion? Restoring relationships or faith in humanity? If you’ve listened for a while you know we’re not that high minded, but we appreciate you anyway.

AWOC: Another round on us!

1/22/2021
Welcome to our third ever “questions” podcast. The rules are simple: Each host gets three questions which have been kept secret from the other hosts. The reactions are real, raw and ill thought out, which is most of the fun! Some involve movies and streaming shows. Some involve modern conundrums. Others are just goofs, but it’s all right off the top of our heads. Enjoy! Follow us at @AWOCPodcast on Twitter, like us on Facebook and leave us a review. Fall down Chad’s movie hole at...

AWOC: Cleaning out the CheeseBunker. Happy Hubrisween!

1/3/2021
As we clean out our vaults and close up 2020, we find this episode focusing on a harrowing feat of strength and endurance for the dumbest of all reasons...Hubrisween. Invented by friend of the pod Tim Lehner (who makes an impromptu guest appearance), we talk about Chad’s adventure with creating 26 horror movie reviews in 26 days, one for each letter of the alphabet. How do you plan for this? What movies do you choose? What about the letters U and X? Listen for all these answers and more....

The turkey is gone...hell, the left overs are gone, but The Atomic Weight of Cheese is back from a brief pause and Thanksgiving ain’t over yet! In this episode we are discussing gratitude in a cultural setting which is a fancy way of saying “we’re thankful for stuff”. It’s a hang out episode, but a good one.

Holding a grudge is no fun BUT there are those certain times, those specific decisions that don’t just stick in your craw, they build a summer home there.

6/29/2020
When a small town’s switchboard and radio station start picking up weird radio signals of unknown origin, the DJ and the telephone operator spend a harrowing night getting to the truth of what’s behind all of this unearthly interference -- stress on the 'unearthly'. Well, Mike, Steph and Chad also spent the night with Everett, Faye, and first time director Andrew Patterson’s The Vast of Night (2019), and in this episode we discuss whether you should tune into this surreal, faux one-take...

We’re celebrating 50 of these things by bringing on our favorites from the Fiasco Family Watch a Movie podcast and our discussion is a doozie.
