About The Pod & The Pendulum

The POD & the PENDULUM is a weekly podcast covering every horror movie franchise, one movie and one episode at a time. Hosted by Mike Snoonian & Jerry Smith, each we we'e joined by different guests to break down and go into deep dives over our favorite genre movies. Series covered include Halloween, Alien, Friday the 13th, Scream, Blair Witch, Poltergeist and more.

What aren't we? Well, we're not driven by plot. We're not going to give you a beat for beat recap of what happens in the movie. You can find that kind of show pretty much everywhere. If you want a show that looks at where a movie sits withing the context of horror movies of its time and within its own franchise we're the show for you. We break down the core themes of the movies we cover from the lens of mental health, sociology and both personal and political driving forces.

Why are we creating a patreon now? We love delivering this show every week and we promise to keep the core episodes free for everybody. If you become a patreon support, you're ensuring we can do that while improving the quality of the show and allowing us the ability to purchase the resources we need to do the research to deliver the most in depth analysis of these films as possible.
