What do the Culture Vultures do?

Commit what we call "Random Access Talk" - it's as if ADD had ADD! - in a pop nerd media culture banter show where we talk about movies, genre television, videogames, nerd tech, music, comic books, bargain hunting, interviews, the culture and other various stuff and nonsense in a breezy, conversational, eavesdropping-on-the-next-table format that's informative and entertaining.

Fun and frisky hosts Dirk Belligerent and Otto the Autopilot (along with occasional Third Most Cultural Vulture Bob "I'm Gonna Kill Somebody" Koski) bring their diverse and knowledgeable perspectives to the latest news and reviews in a manner that even casual media grazers can follow along with. (We aren't just talking to our fellow mavens; we don't want anyone feeling too left out.)

The show contains some NSFW language (nothing Samuel L. Jackson would blush at) and initially airs Fridays at 7 pm EST at the Podcast Detroit network before going out on our own podcast feed in fully finished form. However, our new post-credits segment of additional Random Access Talk, Tinfoil Swan, will only be available to our generous Patreon contributors.

Please visit our website which makes all previous episodes available as embedded players or downloads along with its copious show notes which act as the combined liner notes and commentary track for the episode. While there, subscribe via iTunes or Stitcher; Like our FaceSpace page to get our between show posts; follow us on Twitter or email us and please pass it on to others if you enjoy it. We don't want to be just your little secret, we want to be EVERYONE'S little secret! Thank you!

Where The Money Goes:

Producing the show the past four years has required money for pro-grade recording gear and podcast hosting, all of which has come out of our pockets and we've never made a penny. Your support will allow us to defray some of those costs and actually get some beer money for our entertainment services. (Even a dancing monkey gets some change hurled at it. Aren't we worth as much as a monkey?)

In the spirit of sharing the kindness, 10% of your contributions will be donated to local animal rescue groups like the Hater Kitty Rescue Army (an East-side Detroit feral cat rescue) and the Brother Joe Youth & Street Ministry (helping Detroit's homeless and addicted).

They say the hardest part of getting to a thousand patrons is getting the first 10. It seems that the other 990 would be harder, but let's see how this works out.
