Monty Ashley and Rhias Hall watch a lot of movies, and they like to talk about them. This year, they’re focusing on postapocalyptic movies, so strap on your shoulder pads, spike your hair, and get ready to survive in a world ruined by nuclear war, plague, mutants, or who knows what else. Every episode will focus on a different postapocalyptic movie, until they’ve done a year of it.
 
People and pundits from the world of wrestling join the BBC’s Tom Gerken for the best (and probably only) wrestling panel show there is. Points are won for answers that are smart, funny and enthusiastic, while points are lost when competitors fail to be compelling, interesting, or spout just plain nonsense. In the final round, the two people with the highest scores go one-on-one and pitch why their chosen wrestlers should be inducted into The Members’ Lobby: The 4WD Hall of Fame.

We interrupt the scheduled programming of Monty and Rhias vs. Movies: Fantasy with a special edition of Monty and Rhias vs. Television: Fantasy, because Rhias watched all fifty episodes of the Chinese magical epic The Untamed, and she’s REALLY into it right now. Let’s talk about it! Monty Ashley and Rhias Hall Support this show and other shows like…
 
Arnold Schwarzenegger is perfectly cast, even if he couldn’t really speak English yet. Until Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings movies, this was the iconic fantasy movie. A good time. An excellent time. Conan the Barbarian (1982) Monty Ashley and Rhias Hall Support this show and other shows like it on The Incomparable network by becoming a member. M…
 
Barbarian Queen is a 71-minute movie in which female empowerment (in the form of women killing bad guys with swords) is juxtaposed with certain fantasy tropes that are less empowering (you know the ones I mean). It’s weird. But, again, 71 minutes long! Barbarian Queen Monty Ashley and Rhias Hall Support this show and other shows like it on The Inco…
 
Monty and Rhias are back, with a new movie genre (Fantasy), a new movie (The Sword and the Sorcerer), and a REALLY good excuse for why it took so long to get this episode out the door (Monty had a stroke right after watching the movie). Also, Monty does readings from the novelization, and it is nonsensical. A good time! The Sword and the Sorcerer M…
 
Damnation Alley is the story of a tricked-out military RV being driven around under some very brightly colored skies after a nuclear apocalypse that takes thirteen minutes to play out. Somebody was very concerned that we might not understand what had happened to the world, because this was four years before The Road Warrior demonstrated what postap…
 
Ready for more formative horror talk? Well, this episode’s guest is another Minnesotan, friend of the show Kate Newman, and she’s bringing Bride of Frankenstein and Run with her! Plus, Jennifer Lovely finally gets to list off all the movies she’s been watching for the past month!By Jennifer Lovely and Rhias Hall
 
Hey everyone, welcome to the first of what hopefully will be many little interlude episodes where we focus on a single movie; what we’re calling Femisodes. Jennifer Lovely is joined by Kim Douthit of City of Geek and Ghoulish Tendencies to talk about the newly released Promising Young Woman. Spoilers abound here for a movie that’s only been out for…
 
Show favourites Lou King Sharp and Rob Schamberger return to attempt to break their duck and take home a W for the first time, and James Langfield makes his debut on the show that thinks it's appropriate to put out a New Year's Special on January 15th.By 4 Way Dance: The Wrestling Panel Show
 
Flip those calendars and rejoice, for the hell year is dead! But let’s take one last look back at the movies that gave us joy in the Dark Times with Jennifer Lovely and returning guest Kim Douthit of City of Geek and Ghoulish Tendencies. Plus, a very loud and purring appearance by podcat Maggie. Enjoy! (FYI, my top movie for 2020 was Underwater)…
 
Happy Holidays from DRtL! This time, Jennifer Lovely is welcoming the inestimable Jordan Crucchiola: journalist, movie buff, and now podcaster! They sit down to talk Korean cinema, some fave holiday flicks, and then get down to brass tacks with Jordan’s picks: Event Horizon and Doctor Sleep. This one’s a doozy of a conversation full of great info a…
 
Hey everyone, sorry about being late but there were some audio issues I was trying to fix. It’s not perfect, but I think it’s pretty good now. Which is a shame, because this episode is pretty damn good if I say so in my completely unbiased opinion! This week’s guest is the fabulous actor and director Abie Ekenezar, and there’s not even a What Have …
 
Hey listeners, we’re back! Man, that election week sure was stressful, huh? Glad that’s all over with now, right? Right? Yeesh. This episode, Jen chats with Kate Rowles, long time horror fan and 1st year law student making her podcasting debut! Her two picks are Battle Royale and The Autopsy of Jane Doe, plus there’s a fair amount for Jen to go ove…
 
David Carradine, fresh off Death Race 2000, makes a movie that’s basically Death Race 2000 But With Motorcycles And Also We Have To Make This Like Star Wars Because It’s 1978 And That’s All Anyone Can Talk About. It’s pretty cheap and silly, but there are some very entertaining explosions, and the general weirdness is a lot of fun. Deathsport Monty…
 
Darcy Stone, Lucia Lee and Lance Revera make their debuts! It's 4 Way Dance, the best wrestling panel show in the world (probably because it's the only one). And just in time for Halloween, as promised! Impact, AEW and WWE all get discussed this week by the panel, but most importantly, we find out who our panellists would smack in the face with con…
 
Hey everyone, we’ve got another episode coming atcha, and this time Jennifer Lovely is talking to Sabrina Rei of the Okashi Na Podcast: Anime With Friends! They gush about Bly Manor, talk about a werewolf movie we watched (note: her name is Riki Lindhome and she’s part of Garfunkel and Oates, sweetie), and then get into her formative and recent hor…
 
As far as we know, this movie is only available through Scarecrow Video in Seattle. It’s an extremely silly parody of postapocalyptic movies made by people (in 2009) who were both comedians and Scarecrow employees, which means that they’re pals of Rhias’s. It’s really funny, though, and we try to convey that in our very fond discussion of it. Steel…
 
Hello, listeners! This time around Jennifer Lovely‘s scheduled guest had to reschedule, so she decided to talk to her daughter, Thekla, about her burgeoning interest in horror. Thekla’s been getting into horror and anime, so they discuss those, as well as the kiddo’s picks of Coraline and Black Christmas 2019. Enjoy!…
 
Mark Haskins, Rayhne and Reese Ryan make their debuts! It's 4 Way Dance, the only wrestling panel show anyone has ever been stupid enough to try and book. It's one of the most competitive episodes in the show's history, with yet another controversial ending. Ah, well, just blame it on Russo. 4WD will be back again later this month with a special ep…
 
Hey everyone, hope you’re all staying safe out there! In this episode, Jennifer Lovely sits down for a chat with actress and producer Michelle Nessk. They talk recent horror, get some recommendations, and chat about their formative and recent films, Cemetery Man and Undead. Enjoy!By Jennifer Lovely and Rhias Hall
 
Welcome back, listeners! Hopefully you’re all safe and sound while we in the Pacific Northwest are trapped in our own private Silent Hill with all the wildfire smoke. This time we’ve got a real treat for you, Jennifer Lovely’s guest this week is costumer extraordinaire Taffeta V! They talk about their love of noir, and then get into her picks of Fa…
 
A three-hour movie directed by, and starring, Kevin Costner as the man who brings society back from the postapocalypse by sheer force of downright decent-ness. It’s kind of bombastic, quite overwrought, and the closest thing you’ll see to a postapocalyptic take on Civil War battles. Monty Ashley and Rhias Hall Sponsors Incomparable Memberships!: Si…
 
It's a brand new series of 4 Way Dance, the best wrestling panel show in the world (probably because it's the only one). This week Fierce Females' Ayesha Raymond makes her debut alongside Pride of Brighton champion Cassius, The Neon Explosion. Meanwhile, Simon Miller marks the first time a previous winner has returned to the show, seeking to become…
 
It's probably the best wrestling panel show in the world, probably because it's the only one. 4 Way Dance will return with a second season starting September 9th 2020. In the meantime, Tom, Claire and Bohan get together to have a (very) quick chat about the questionable call not to include Greg "The Hammer" Valentine in the induction of Rhythm & Bl…
 
It’s time for more Latinless goodness, and this time Jennifer Lovely is chatting with long-time friend and video game aficionado Gwen Beaudry. Her picks are Nightmare on Elm Street and Let Us Prey, and boy, does she have a story about why Nightmare is her formative movie. Be sure to pay attention to the Content Warning in the episode, folks!…
 
This is one of the least postapocalyptic movies ever made. At best, there are three square blocks of postapocalypse, and some of it might be Brooklyn. A lot of it is definitely Rome. This movie is equal parts ripoffs of The Warriors and Escape From New York, and it’s a lot of fun, in a grimy kind of way. Monty Ashley and Rhias Hall Support this sho…
 
We’re back! We’ve been delayed by some recovery issues, but now Jen’s sitting down with Meg Creelman, a horror aficionado we met at Bats’ Day at Disneyland (where Jen and I got engaged). They’re going to talk about Alien and Crimson Peak, and Meg’s going to share some stories. Enjoy!By Jennifer Lovely and Rhias Hall
 
Is it postapocalyptical? Sort of! Is it genuine nonsense? Absolutely! Does Sean Connery wear an outfit that is completely unacceptable? You know it! ZARDOZ Monty Ashley and Rhias Hall Referenced Works Zardoz [Amazon] Show Notes & Links Support this show and other shows like it on The Incomparable network by becoming a member. Members get early acce…
 
It's the best wrestling panel show in the world - probably because it's the only one. Kevin Bennett and Tiffany make their debuts on the only wrestling podcast that asks its guests to describe wrestlers as vegetables and pitch their home-made wrestling cookbooks. This week Jackie Polo, Kevin Bennett, Tiffany and Andrew Bohan attempt to convince hos…
 
This movie is very gross! And Monty and Rhias talk about it frankly and with swear words. Atolladero was made in 1995 and it is very much one of those movies made right after Pulp Fiction where they just pile on the drugs and violence and transgressive behavior and so forth. It appeared in a few film festivals and then had a limited release in Spai…
 
We learn about the time Jackie Polo smacked Mark Sweeney with a garlic baguette and compare it to the time Rhia O’Reilly got smacked round the head with a chimichanga by Leva Bates, Mike Outlaw explains why ACH is the most generous person in wrestling, and the panellists tell us about their favourite bits of random wrestling merch. It's the only pa…
 
Hey everyone, hope you had a safe 4th of July! We’re back, and this time Jennifer Lovely is hanging out with Jillian Venters of Gothic Charm School to talk about her formative and modern movie picks, Poltergeist and Starry Eyes. Major spoilers are contained within for those films, so if you haven’t watched them yet, be warned! Also, a CONTENT WARNI…
 
Dasher Hatfield shows off his Hall of Fame ring and brings on a mystery guest, Lou King Sharp seeks to do better than tag partner Krieger's run last time out, and RJ City joins the fray with some sensational chat and a new alias. It's the only panel show around where knowing wrestling gets you points and not knowing wrestling gets you none. Describ…
 
In a break from normal service, Tom Gerken talks about #SpeakingOut. Rhia O'Reilly explains how she felt when people started coming forward and talks about what can be done in the future to make things better. And Justin Humphreys explains why relationships between wrestling trainers and trainees do not contravene the Sexual Offences Act 2003, and …
 
If you liked us talking about Bob Foster with Kim last week, you’ll love hearing from him in this episode! We’ve got another co-host of City of Geek here to talk about his first horror movie, Halloween III: Season of the Witch, and his modern pick, Annihilation. And if you say you’re going to talk about Annihilation, then I, Handsome Husband Jim, w…
 
Wheels of Fire was shot in the Philippines and has probably the most explosions of any movie we’ve seen in this Postapocalyptic year. It also contains a telepathic woman, a woman who appears to have a psychic link with a hawk, and an actual Playboy Playmate. And yet? Extremely boring. And it is very unkind to its female characters, especially the a…
 
It's the show where the points don't mean too much so long as we have a good time getting there. Chikara Grand Champ Dasher Hatfield joins the party alongside cracking indie wrestler TK Cooper, Scottish comic Andrew Bohan and the man behind Botchamania, Maffew. With everything going on in the world, join us for a few laughs to take your mind off th…
 
Hey there, and welcome back to Don’t Read the Latin! We hope you’re all safe and taking care of yourselves mentally and physically in these trying times. This marks the first of our new direction where the guests rotate and we dive into what movie introduced them to horror, and which modern one reinforced that love. In this inaugural episode, Jen i…
 
Rutger Hauer and Joan Chen are athletes in the coolest post-apocalyptic deathsport of them all: They’re juggers! That means they travel from desolate wasteland town to desolate wasteland town to fight a brutal struggle centered around a dog skull. It’s great. The Blood of Heroes Monty Ashley and Rhias Hall Support this show and other shows like it …
 
Outside Xbox icon Andy Farrant is on the panel alongside former ICW Champion Jackie Polo, stand-up comedian John Hastings and Scottish comic Claire Abraham. Points are won for answers that are smart, funny and enthusiastic, while points are lost when competitors fail to be compelling, interesting, or spout just plain nonsense. In the final round, t…
 
One half of the first ever WWE NXT Tag Team champions Joel Redman is on the panel alongside the first ever Progress World champion Nathan Cruz, wrestling journalist Gary Cassidy and Scottish comedian Andrew Bohan. Points are won for answers that are smart, funny and enthusiastic, while points are lost when competitors fail to be compelling, interes…
 
Ahoy, there! Welcome back to Don’t Read the Latin, this time with 100% more salt…water. Jennifer Lovely and special guest Handsome Husband Jim bring you their picks for horror on the high seas. While careful listeners might hear Max the podcat in the background, this episode has the debut of his sister podcat Maggie who gets very up close and perso…
 
Fresh off the back of matches in NJPW & ROH, it's Alex Zayne on the panel alongside "the nicest guy in wrestling" Chuck Mambo, top comedian John Robertson and Scottish comic Andrew Bohan. Points are won for answers that are smart, funny and enthusiastic, while points are lost when competitors fail to be compelling, interesting, or spout just plain …
 
Behold, the story of Harmony, Anderson, and to a much lesser extent, a guy named Roland, who enters the story way too late to count as comic relief. It is a story you’ve heard before, with motorcycles and weird leather clothing, and plague mutants. Well, we’re not told that those guys were mutants, but they probably were. Stands to reason, right? T…
 
ATTACK! and Progress Unified World Champion Cara Noir, top wrestling YouTuber Simon Miller, ace interviewer Chris Van Vliet and former ICW Champion Jackie Polo join Tom on the show. Points are won for answers that are smart, funny and enthusiastic, while points are lost when competitors fail to be compelling, interesting, or spout just plain nonsen…
 
What if the postapocalyptic world didn’t have shoulderpads and mohawks? What if instead, it had a midcentury rock and roll aesthetic with katanas and a Russian surf guitar soundtrack and a guitar duel against death? What if it didn’t make a lick of sense, but it looked good enough that it didn’t matter? Six-String Samurai Monty Ashley and Rhias Hal…
 
From inside our houses to inside yours, Rhias Hall and Jennifer Lovely bring tales of films set in that magical place called… outside. Yes, it’s horror movies that don’t take place within four walls, so if you need some escapism coupled with a different kind of dread, we’re here for you! Stay safe, everyone!…
 
Journey with Monty and Rhias all the way back to 2018, when Sandra Bullock and John Malkovich were trapped in a post-apocalyptic world on Netflix. If they see the monster, they’ll die! So instead, they stay locked inside a house and yell at each other. So far, this was the most accurate post-apocalypse. Bird Box Monty Ashley and Rhias Hall Support …
