My name is John H Maloney and I'm a writer, musician & podcaster based in New Jersey.

I decided to start the rec list as a way to extend the constant stream of recommendations that I've been posting on social media for years. I've recently realized that media curation is a passion of mine and now I want to try reach a larger audience. Every week I'll be posting recommendations for movies, music, anime, podcasts, Youtube channels, books, tv shows and any other media I find & feel compelled to share.

In addition to writing the rec list, I'm also the co-host and producer of a b-movie & cult movie review podcast called Zombie Take-Out.

Podcast/Zombie Take-Out

Zombie Take-Out is a movie review podcast that I co-host & produce. Officially, we say that we review b-movies & cult films, but internally my co-host, Scotto and I classify the movies that we cover as non-mainstream. Although, we also review box office bombs, big budget b-movies and classic geek films like The Fifth Element and Galaxy Quest. Basically, unless a movie is legitimately good and very mainstream, it's fair game for us.

We launched Zombie Take-Out in the spring of 2009 after ending The Tuesday Afternoon Show, a sketch comedy podcast that we'd been doing since the fall of 2005. We'd grown tired of all of the writing and post-production involved with a sketch comedy show and wanted to do podcast that relied more on banter than scripted dialogue and sound effects. We'd both been fans of weird and bad movies for years and I had even been doing a regular b-movie recommendation segment on The Tuesday Afternoon Show for some time so a b-movie/cult film review show just seemed like the next logical step. Of course, we couldn't leave our roots behind completely and we like to work in some comedy when we can including humorous episode titles, joke sponsors and a rating system that's based on brains instead of stars, but it's not all fun and games. We also do our homework and try try to provide an informed and in-depth analysis of each film that we review.

I'll leave you with clip from a recent episode and you can all of our episodes at our website.

If there's a movie, band, podcast or any other media that you'd like me to check out for possible inclusion on the rec list, please contact me and let me know about it.
