Welcome back to 'Casting the Bones', a chilling new podcast dedicated to exploring the roots of horror fiction and folklore. Your hosts Nathan Bartlebaugh and Seth Dombach peel back the seemingly tranquil veneer of the normal to examine the weird, the strange and the terrifying lurking beneath the flesh and muscle of our world.

In this episode we talk briefly about the latest--and laziest--monster hoax to hit the internet, and lament a time when people were willing to build better bluffs and better beasts. We also contemplate the difference between an aswang and a chupacabra.

Then, it's off across the darkness of the airwaves to commemorate the late, great spooktacular Art Bell, who introduced whole generations to the beautiful wierdness of supernatural and paranormal conspiracy theories with his hit radio show 'Coast to Coast'. We discuss some of the Bell's greatest hits, what made him so enduring and compelling, and the nerve the show struck in culture.

We also showcase some of Bell's craziest callers, including the infamous Area 51 employee whose nutty rant ended in a sattelite malfunction and a dropped broadcast.

We wrap the evening up with a review of a tantalizingly strange new movie called 'The Endless', directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Have the directors of the intriguing 'Resolution' and the beautifully creepy 'Spring' struck gold again? Does this highly lauded indie live up to the early hype? Listen and find out.

Settle down, turn off the lights, and join us as we cast the bones.

Welcome back! You've arrived at the Phantom Galaxy Podcast, a journey into all things science fiction, fantasy and horror.

Nathan Bartlebaugh and Nathan Bell leap into unapologetic eye-rolling 80's nostalgia, while rolling their eyes at unapologetic 80's nostalgia.

Fueled by Blueberry Moonshine, the guys talk about Youtube Red's upcoming Karate Kid cash-in, Cobrai Kai, and then go down the rabbit hole of silly 80's martial arts extravaganzas, paying some special attention to schlocky faves like Ninja 3: The Domination and The Last Dragon.

There's also a spoiler-free review of Steven Spielberg's big-screen adaptation of Ernie Cline's Ready Player One. Can Spielberg harness the nostalgia zeitgeist while not succumbing to reference overload, the way Cline's book did?  Or is this the 'Where's Waldo?' of 80's kid pandering?

Jump into our DeLorean and take a trip down memory lane...

Welcome back! You've arrived at the Phantom Galaxy Podcast, a journey into all things science fiction, fantasy and horror.

In this episode host Nathan Bartlebaugh is joined with guest host Nathan Bell as they look at the latest attempt to bring Lara Croft to the screen in Tomb Raider. They also reminisce about the game franchise and the success or lack-thereof of the previous movies.

After that, we move from outlandish big-screen heroine to outlandish small-screen hero and discuss Bruce Campbell's foray into the silly and grotesque over at Starz with the latest season of Ash Vs. The Evil Dead.

It's a goofy good time. Hail to the King, Baby!

Casting the Bones Episode 1

Welcome to the very first episode of 'Casting the Bones', a chilling new podcast dedicated to exploring the roots of horror fiction and folklore. Your hosts Nathan Bartlebaugh and Seth Dombach peel back the seemingly tranquil veneer of the normal to examine the weird, the strange and the terrifying lurking beneath the flesh and muscle of our stories to find the fear beneath.

Consider this episode the prologue, as we discuss childhood fears and haunts and what things drew us to the horrific and unusual to begin with.

Every week we'll share fictional stories from new authors and esteemed masters of the genre, and we'll discuss those tales that dare to be true, while shining a light on what it is that makes our scariest superstitions tick. We'll have interviews with horror authors, artists and those folks who just have a stirring story to tell.

Settle down, turn off the lights, and join us as we cast the bones.

Send any fiction, strange experiences, or art/books/films you'd like reviewed, or general feedback to castingthebones@gmail.com.

Happy New Year from Phantom Galaxy!

Seth and Nathan start the year out on a slightly bleaker note, by considering Charlie Brooker's dark sci-fi phenomenon, Black Mirror.

Set in worlds that feel devastatingly close to our own, Black Mirror often feels like Twilight Zone for pessimists. But underneath the grim exterior, there are worlds bursting with human truth and feeling, even if some of it doesn't exactly shine a light on our better natures.

In this first episode, Nathan and Seth discuss the first two seasons of the show and the first Christmas special. They will return to talk the two Netflix seasons shortly.

SPOILER WARNING: While we mostly try to leave many of the big plot twists or suprises intact, our basic approach to this episode was with 'full spoilers' in mind, so take notice before you continue.
