The Carbon Arc Podcast Episode 4: King Kong Escapes (1968) With Guest Bob Madison.

In the latest episode of The Carbon Arc Podcast, Bob Madison and I start with King Kong Escapes (1968) and somehow make our way through Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer and Batman to Jim Backus, Paul Frees and George C. Scott.



From the late 70s into the 80s, WOR-TV in New York used to run this as part of a Thanksgiving monster marathon.

Be sure to look into Bob’s young adult novel, Spiked, available on Amazon.
