In this long-delayed episode of the Bodacious Horror Podcast, Gill and Roscoe are joined by horror historian, author and all-round excellent person Frank Dello Stritto to talk all things Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, with a particular focus on "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein". In discussing his latest book - "I Saw What I Saw When I Saw It" - Frank reflects on his time growing up in the suburbs of New Jersey with the omnipresent companionship of TV re-runs, Shock Theater presentations of classic horror movies and the faded stars of Saturday afternoon matinees. Frank talks about the formative power of film and TV, and along the way we discuss everything from "Chico The Rainmaker", "The Cisco Kid" and "The Lone Ranger" through to "The Twilight Zone", "Frankenstein meets the Wolfman" and "American Horror Story".
