Let’s Talk Monsters is a podcast that primarily discusses the Universal Monster movies that were produced from the 1920s through the 1940s, but also expands to include all movies and TV shows from the horror genre. Michael and Allison don’t review the movies as much as they zoom-in on certain scenes from the films, discussing oddities, flaws, and eyebrow-raising moments.
