Soundtrack Of Your Life #13: Spawn

How come God hogs up all the good podcasters, and we’re left with… .

Each episode, Corey Pierce welcomes a guest (or guests) onto the show who has chosen a compilation or soundtrack that speaks to a memorable era of their life. The soundtrack will play underneath and serves as a springboard to discussion about the music itself, how it works within the film, and what was going on with their life at the time of its release.

For episode 13, Corey once again dips into his wedding party, welcoming comedian/voice actor/Classic Simpsons Trivia Toronto host Chris Brazeau . After an extended intro featuring talk of Harry Shearer and a game of Stump The Guest, we dive into 1997’s critically reviled Spawn, known for it’s collaborative efforts between then-hot alterna-metal acts and emerging heavyweights of the genre we then called electronica. We find the film to be surprisingly campy fun whilst reflecting back on stories of teenage rebellion and finding ways to set yourself apart via clothing. Stay tuned to the end where we also discuss a recent local controversy around women in comedy facing sexual harassment.

Great show, guys, I had no idea of this controversy with local female comics in TO. That’s insane. Rita Rudner actually is doing a regular Vegas gig, by the way. I always liked her on Just For Laughs growing up. I would think if she came up now, there’d be a little bit more opportunity for someone with her comic sensibilities, but who knows.
