The Chronic Rift Podcast

John S. Drew's picture

The Chronic Rift Podcast was the first of the many programs produced by the network.  Based on the popular New York public access show of the 90's, the podcast broadens the original science fiction/fantasy forcus to that of all things pop culture.

The podcast is hosted by public access show creator John S. Drew, an educator, writer, and lover of all things television.  Each week, the podcast features news, reviews, and interviews on the latest in pop culture phenomenon.

There are four versions of the show.  They are:

ROUNDTABLE - Once a month, a group of fans and professionals alike gather to discuss an aspect of pop culture.

IN REVIEW - Once a month, John and Rift regular Keith DeCandido discuss all aspects of the pop culture universe with other members of the Rift Network.

SPOTLIGHT - Twice a month, interviews and special episodes are the focus of the spotlight.  Specials include our annual music show, Match Game tribute episode, audio drama, and holiday show.

POST MORTEM AFTER PARTY - (returning in 2012)  Some of the best conversations on the show occur after the show has been recorded.  John, Keith, and guests of the show, keep the party going with discussion on other aspects of pop culture.
