The Chronic Rift Spotlight: Summer Movie Alternatives -- plus network update!

Our new spotlight episode is about Summer Movie Alternatives. Hosted by The Weekly Podioplex's Michael Falkner, we provide some movies for those of you who are blockbustered out or just want to avoid the crowds thronging to The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, or Brave.

Also there are some new podcasts on The Chronic Rift Network that you should be aware of:
    ---The Cardboard Jungle. Our latest podcast stars Anthony Racano and Paul Leoncavallo and focuses on board and card games. The inaugural episode introduces the hosts and has, not one, but two contests!
    ---The Weekly Podioplex. Amazingly, Michael does talk about something other than The Avengers. No, really!
    ---It Has Come to My Attention. Kevin Lauderdale looks at the 2011 Chinese flick Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame.
    ---Presenting the Transcription Feature. John S. Drew hosts another presentation of old-time radio: the "Nightmare" episode of The CBS Radio Workshop, plus the latest episodes of The Avengers (the other ones) and The Adventures of Superman.
    ---The Chronic Rift Classic. Presenting episodes of the original public access TV show on the 20th anniversary of their release, check out our Roundtable discussions of the TV shows of Kenneth Johnson and European comic books. Guests include Catalan Comics publisher Bernard Metz, NBM publisher Terry Nantier, Publishers Weekly comics critic Calvin Reid, screenwriter Duane Brodnick, fan Arianwen P.F. Everett, Rift TV critic Orenthal V. Hawkins, and, by phone to discuss his work on such shows as Alien Nation, The Bionic Woman, and V, Kenneth Johnson his own self.

The podcasts are available through iTunes, the Rift web site, or Mevio's Rift page. You can comment on the web site, on our Facebook page, on Twitter @chronic_rift, by e-mail to john at chronicrift dot com, or by phone at 888-866-9010.
