The Basement Boys dive deep into online insanity in this, the latest podcast From The Basement!
Jason speaks with author, journalist and the world's leading expert on UFOs and conspiracy theories, Nick Pope! Yup, NICK POPE! And they're talking the Internet's latest viral sensation, Storm Area 51.
They discuss the logistics and validity of Storm Area 51, people's fascination with the site and UFOs, and why conspiracy theories and aliens remain so fixed in the public consciousness. This is a great interview with the world's leading expert on the subject, and one all Basement Dwellers need to hear.
There's also a review of the new Netflix movie Point Blank starring Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo, and this morning's segment from the mighty Radio NL 610 AM Morning News with Howie Reimer.
Oh, and things get very un-PC by the end of this show. Be warned, those who are easily triggered.

It's a mixed bag of nonsense this week as Jason and Shawn bring you the latest podcast From The Basement!
The Basement Boys aren't drinking mead or interviewing anyone this episode. But they are catching up with a bunch of stuff that should hit you right in your entertainment centre.
Jason's binged the shit out of Stranger Things 3. How'd he dig it? Is it the best season yet of the Netflix ode to 80s horror and science fiction? Stick with us!
And Shawn's seen the newest Hellboy and found it... Well, you gotta tune in and learn his thoughts.
The Dynamic Duo also discuss why Netflix's Triple Frontier flopped, talk the possibility of back-to-back Halloween sequels, and pay their respects -- kinda -- to the late, great Rip Torn. PLUS Mike S returns for another review that'll pleasure your ear holes.
Toss in the Friday morning segment from the Radio NL 610 AM Morning News and you've got yourself a podcast! So sit back, crack a cold one, and push play. It's 40 minutes of your life that's well spent.
What, you ask, do a couple of guys who review movies know about mead? And, while on the subject, what qualifies them to review said mead on their show... which is supposed to be about movies and all things entertainment?
Well, mead is a drink, and drinks are an important part of many entertainment events, so put that in your pipe and smoke it!
Jason and Shawn do indeed talk mead -- an alcoholic beverage derived from honey -- and they do provide their two cents on some local brew, as per the request of the brewer. How do the Basement Boys do on their first alcohol review? Stick with us!
But the Dynamic Duo ARE movie and entertainment guys, so they weigh in on the Sean Connery classic The Presidio, and the trailer for Rian Johnson's upcoming mystery flick Knives Out starring current Bond, Daniel Craig. There's also a sad lament on the passing of Mad Magazine.
Plus, our resident twit Mike S returns with a review of a not-so-classic horror movie. Neat, no?
Throw in this morning's segment from the mighty Radio NL 610 AM Morning Show and you've got the latest extended cut podcast... From The Basement!

Deadsight hits DVD and VOD July 2.

But that's not all! The Basement Boys go gaga over Brightburn, talk at length about its awesomeness, and why it should have been a big, big hit. Like Avengers: Endgame big.

Sure, they said there wouldn't be an extended cut podcast this week, but Jason and Shawn still have a little something for your ear holes on this, From The Basement's first anniversary on the mighty Radio NL.
A year ago NL came calling, wanting a locally produced entertainment piece for Friday episodes of the Radio NL 610 AM Morning Show. They wanted Jason and Shawn to do it, and the Basement Boys said yes.
The first few weeks saw the morning segment podcast here at wecamefromthebasement.com before fans demanded something along the lines of the podcasts they know and love. The extended cut podcasts were born, featuring new Jason and Shawn material as a wrap around for the NL spots.
What you get today is the segment from this morning's Radio NL 610 AM Morning Show, which features a complete rundown of what to watch at home, and in theatres, this weekend. We didn't want to let the one-year anniversary go uncelebrated.
Jason and Shawn return next week with a new extended cut podcast featuring... stick with us!
And thanks for listening the last 52 weeks. We promise more great things to come.
Up from the depth, 30 stories tall, he breathes fire, and is king of them all...
That's right, bitches: there's a new Godzilla movie out this weekend, and that's a reason to celebrate! And Jason and Shawn intend to do just that as From The Basement returns with a new extended cut podcast that will surely pleasure your ear holes!
Not only do you get this morning's Radio NL segment, where Jason, Shawn and Howie talk Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Rocketman and Ma -- not to mention trash Trump, select Chris Pine as the man who should play Ozzie in the inevitable biopic, and rundown what to watch on TV this week -- but you get a slew of reviews as well.
Shawn's seen Netflix's latest, the alien invasion flick Rim of the World, and Jay's watched the creepy kid flick The Prodigy. What'd they think? Stick with us!
And stick around, as The Basement Boys catch the latest Small Town Monsters documentary Terror in the Skies, which is about Mothman and other winged creature sightings in the heartland of America. Is it good stuff? They'll let you know.
Naturally that's not all that goes down the episode, but you'll have to push play and tune in to hear it. So do so... right now!
We'll be back June 14 with a new episode.
Watching a talented actor for the first time is a treat for movie fans. Seeing them excel in their first lead role -- in a feature film no less -- is a gift. Such is the case with Katherine Munroe in the upcoming Possession Diaries.
And here's a treat for Basement Dwellers everywhere: From The Basement not only reviews Katherine's first feature film, but has an exclusive interview with the star as well.
Jason and Katherine talk for 14 minutes about how she landed the role of Rebecca in Possession Diaries, what it was like working with veterans James Russo and Noel Gugliemi, and the pressures that come with starring in, what is essentially, a one-woman show. It's a great conversation, and hopefully we'll see a lot more of the star in the future.
Meanwhile, Jason and Shawn lament the death of Santa Clarita Diet, talk the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Terminator: Dark Fate and Star Trek: Picard trailers, and admit to being man children and cranky old men at the same time.
Throw in this morning's segment from the mighty Radio NL Morning News and you've got yourself a podcast for the ages. Or at least the weekend. So push play, enjoy, and stick with us!

In addition to talking the awesomeness that will surely be John Wick Chapter 3 - Parabellum, which The Basement Boys cover off during the NL segment, they provide a list of what they think the Big Summer Movies will be. Kind of them, no?
Jason and Shawn also rundown some hot new movie trailers (Angel Has Fallen and Assimilate), discuss quality television (Lucifer and The Wire), rant on fanboy entitlement (we're talking about you, so-called Game of Thrones fans), talk the hiring of Robert Pattinson as Batman, and prepare themselves for the awesome might of Clownado.
