Welcome back to Create Pod. We’re continuing our season 2 interview series with Brian Salisbury, co-host of one of our favorite movie podcasts, the Austin based cult movie show Junkfood Cinema. Brian co-hosts the show with C. Robert Cargill, a celebrated writer and former film critic who’s written a number of novels and movies, including one you may have heard of, Marvel’s Dr. Strange.
We wanted to talk to Brian because, not only is he a very successful veteran podcaster, but because Junkfood Cinema is fueled by his and Cargill’s passion for cult and exploitation movies. Their primary driver for the show is the duo’s desire to share their deep knowledge of and affection for cult films like Deep Blue Sea, Piranha, and Killer Clowns From Outer Space with listeners (while having a fucking great time doing it). It makes for a uniquely entertaining podcast, and that’s why they’ve cultivated such a large audience for the show and tons of support over on Patreon.
In this chat, Brian covers everything from starting Junkfood Cinema, transitioning from writer to podcaster, and the success of the show and how they put it all together.
