The Halloween Season has officially begun! This year, stores actually started putting candy and decorations out early, which I take as a good sign. It may not feel like the Halloween season 100% yet, but we are IN IT, so let’s get cracking. The Purple Stuff Podcast brings to you an episode all about EVIL CLOWNS! Whether they are dopey, fun, or sad, many of them are known to be scary A F, which lead many of you to grow up with an aversion to these face painted pranksters. For decades, they’ve been a prominent part of horror movie culture having their own sub-genre. And very likely, they occupy the part of your brain that stores nightmare fuel that leaks out while you are sleeping. In this new episode, me and Matt from Dino Drac are presenting you with our list of scary clowns in movies, TV and all around pop culture. From Pennywise to Poltergeist to Power Rangers we’ve got some good ones for you! Tune in via your favorite podcast app and if you would like to help support the show consider leaving us positive feedback on iTunes or any of the podcast apps. You can also visit us on our Patreon where we have monthly bonus shows. Thanks for reading and listening!
I CALLED THE PIZZA DUDE!! To celebrate the final Summer Saturday extravaganza, Matt and I throw ourselves a little PIZZA PARTY!! We’re covering Pizza in pop culture and anecdotes from our own memory banks. Naturally, we’re all ready for the Halloween season so that will be coming up before you know it. In the meantime, enjoy this show which is covered in toppings ranging from SummerSlam to TMNT. Listen wherever you prefer your podcasts, otherwise PIZZA THE HUTT WILL SEND OUT FOR YOU!! Mwhahahaa! PURPLE STUFF PODCAST: PIZZA PARTY!!!
Summer Saturdays on The Purple Stuff Podcast is going strong. Matt and I have been making the best of the scorching hot days on the pod. In the background all I can think about is how the Halloween season is almost here. Knowing that my favorite season is creeping up on us is fueling me although first, we’ve got to make it through these hot summer days. We do just that on the new episode of the podcast. This episode finds us at the local Flea Market.
Englishtown Flea Market is basically the Mos Eisley of New Jersey sans the spaceport aspect. Sum and Villainy you know what I’m saying. Of course I’m kidding, everyone who sells there is usually very nice, or as nice as someone can be when standing outside in the dirt in 97 degree heat selling 3 old picture frames and a plugged tire from a 1990 Toyota Corolla. Matt and I have been frequenting this place for a while and we decided that we’d pay them a visit as part of our Summer Saturdays series of shows. Flea Markets can take place all year round obviously, but here in the trip-state area, the outdoor jams are pretty much exclusive to the summer months. No one wants to be shopping for bootleg power rangers in -12 degrees wearing snow boots. It’s probably just as abysmal as it is in the heat and humidity though!
We made it through and each grabbed a few things that we discuss on the show. At this point, anything we wind up doing turns into a freaking debacle and this one was a fun one. Maybe while I was there sweating my ass off covered in dirt it didn’t seem like that much of a blast, but listen in and you’ll get a feel for an authentic, outdoor Jersey flea market. There’s an array of junk we came home with, we whip out loot bags, tape cleaners, we open up some trading cards, and even do a taste test, not of the cards obviously.
Take a listen wherever you enjoy your podcasts! We appreciate any positive reviews you feel like leaving and as always, spread the word!

Summer Saturday’s on the Purple Stuff Podcast continues! All month long me and Matt are bringing you new episodes you can listen to as you try to beat the heat. We’re happy to have you along for the ride! In this week’s episode we answer all kinds of summery questions that were sent in by the listeners. We take a total cruise line down memory lane. Slip and Slides, Summer TV lineups, and toys all get discussed. We basically got sent to SUMMER SCHOOL so listen to find out if we passed! We hope you dig it!

The hot, blazing summer has come for all of us. Just think, if we make it out alive we are one step closer to the Halloween season! At least that’s my incentive to persevere through these hellish, humid days. Even though it’s my least favorite season, I admit that theres so much to enjoy about it. If you can deal with swamp ass and drenching back sweat then you’ll have no problem appreciating the finer things that the summer has to offer. To encapsulate it all into one tiny nostalgic trip, The Purple Stuff Podcast is very excited to bring to you SUMMER SATURDAYS! We look at this as a way for you to savor the summer while sipping Shasta cans in the yard.
What is Summer Saturdays you ask? Essentially, me and Matt will be bringing you a new podcast every Saturday throughout July focusing on some of the highlights of summer for us. We’ll be presenting a variety of different themes during this extravaganza, but first, to kick things off, we have a music show for you compiling our summer playlists. You know us by now, we intentionally try to avoid the typical fare in favor of spotlighting the slightly more obscure stuff.
Whacked out is the best way to describe the variety on this episode. From songs heard in horror films to more songs heard in horror films to a member of the Mickey Mouse Club, to The Lost Boys on the beach, to fun with Phoebe Cates it’s just bananas. Check this one out if you’re chilling by your pool, doing yard work, *PAINTING THE FENCE, or just living that sloth life on your couch in the air conditioning. It’s a fun way to kick off your summer and we’ve got a lot more in store for you this month so stay tuned!
Thank you for listening to the show! If you would like to support The Purple Stuff Podcast we greatly appreciate your help! You can spread the word to friends IRL, leave us a positive review on iTunes, share us on social media, or join in the fun on our Patreon where we present a monthly bonus show exclusively for our “Patronies.” Thanks again and we hope your summer kicks ass.
*Can you name what movie this references? That’s another hint to a movie that gets brought up in this episode thanks to the awesome summer song!
Monsters and ghosts get talked about the most. Many would say that demons and ghouls are just as cool. What about the witches? Whether you prefer the historical lore of the witch trials or the more macabre evil queens of magic, witches have provided us with so much spooky entertainment. For people like us, witches are also a huge aspect of our favorite season of the year. Halloween and witches are basically synonymous, but almost to the point where we’re desensitized to them. In the new episode of the Purple Stuff Podcast, we’re commending our favorite witches from pop culture despite how despicable their acts may be…or their faces!
Consider the massive amount of notorious witches, we literally had to conjure up a spell to settle on 5 selections each. Think about it for a sec an you’ll be able to name at least 10 cool witches that you have an affinity for. In this show Matt and I chose witches we adore from movies (made for cable and theatrical), and commercials. Even though we had to leave so many on the table, we’re confident that you will enjoy hearing about the likes of Charal and a certain green ruler of Winkie Country. We also delve into the enchanting ways of the hideously horny Sarah Sanderson and the snoring sorcerer herself, Helena Markos!
This weekend, invite your coven, kindle up your cauldron, and hole up in your crib for a listen to this new episode! You can listen here or subscribe on your favorite podcast app. If you are interested in supporting our show you can leave us a positive 5 star review on iTunes OR head over to our Patreon page where we present an exclusive monthly bonus show! As always, thank you so much for listening and reading!
This is a time when wrestling fanatics get their due. All year long we’re pretty much outcast from society. The way people turn their nose up and roll their eyes when they see your t-shirt. THE MAN, is all it says, but when they discover it to be a shirt inspired by a WWE Superstar, the conversation winds down and they begin to slink away as if they found out you have a disease and are highly infectious. More than a few of these elitist people share in the fact that they pretty much enjoyed professional wrestling at one time in their lives. Sometimes you’ll hear that they watched it as a kid when Hulk Hogan was a global phenomenon, others will tell you they watched during the attitude era and tend to only remember The Rock and Stone Cold.
However it happened, they were invested at one point, but now, it’s a joke to them, a total farce. For the billions of fans around the world, it’s the total opposite. The reverence and enthusiasm for pro-wrestling is as strong as ever and it comes to a crescendo this week because we’re about to celebrate the biggest sports entertainment event of the year. To all the naysayers, those who think only weird little kids watch wrestling and grown ass adults should grow the fuck up, they can sit down and keep quiet. As Mikey said in The Goonies, this is our time. It’s our time during WrestleMania week!
In celebration of WrestleMania, me and Matt recorded our annual wrestling show. As lifelong fans of the business, we take a lot of pride of joy in doing these episodes. Even though many of our listeners and friends don’t even dig wrestling, I’ve personally heard from tons who have expressed that even though they aren’t wrestling fans, they love when we do these because the excitement and fun we have for WWE is infectious.
We’re hoping you take a listen to this new episode during the Mania week festivities. It’s all about wrestlers who have appeared in other media, those who have “gone Hollywood” as it were! We’re covering Demolition, Sgt. Slaughter, Jesse “the Body” Ventura and a host of others! Thanks for checking it out and if you would like to support our show please visit Patreon.com/PurpleStuff where you can get access to our special bonus episodes! Now, let’s take you down to ringside!
In many ways, I’ve spent my life prepping for the crap that Dino Drac and I discuss on the Purple Stuff Podcast. Who knew that all those hours as a couch potato on those summer days that were too sweltering to even swim under the sun would actually prove to be useful someday. Well, useful is a stretch, but all those memories certainly fuels our Mr. Fusion of inconsequential nostalgia. For a little trip back in time to when TV sitcoms ruled our world and they were only available through that giant box in your living room, dial up our first TV Theme Songs show from May 2016!
If you don’t need the refresher, well, as Freddy said, WELCOME TO PRIME TIME BITCH! We’ve got 10 TV Themes to discuss and dissect. We don’t only talk about the music, we also get into the details of the actual intros themselves in some cases. No matter what, these are some oddball choices as always. You’ll hear everything from Harry and The Hendersons to Jem! Things are about to get weird so take a listen on your favorite podcast app. Thank you for listening and feel free to add your favorite TV Themes in the comments!
If you dig the show and would like to support the show you can share the show on social media, or recommend The Purple Stuff Podcast to one of your friend IRL! So many people I know are through with social media altogether that you may want to have an actual convo with them and say “Hey, this is a show I enjoy listening to and you may like it as well!” If you aren’t into that option, we would love it if you could give us a 5 star rating on iTunes. And last but not least, you can support us on Patreon for an exclusive monthly bonus show! www.Patreon.com/PurpleStuff Thanks again for listening and reading!
Red is one of those colors that could mean danger or make you think of a sleek ’80s sports car. Maybe your protection grid has been turned off by a dick from the EPA, or you’ve got a thing for little Red Corvettes? Either way, we’ve decided to compile a bunch of things that come to our minds when we think of RED and talk about them on the latest episode Purple Stuff Podcast!
As a sequel to our Green Show which can be found here, we now present to you a bunch of Red stuff. Whatever pops into your head when you think of the color red is likely not the crap we discuss in this episode, but that’s all the more reason to listen! In this episode we’ll go from Thundercat villains to seafood restaurants to makeout gum. It’s quite a trip. You’ll be seeing red by the end of it all.
