TG Geeks Webcast Episode 317
The Two Gay Geeks 🏳️🌈 have a chat with a chat amongst themselves about the Classic Universal Horror films that started it all. We take a look at Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Mummy, all released in the early heyday of horror at Universal 1931 – 1932. A little history and some critique on the restored versions of these films are up for discussion. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
About The Two Gay Geeks
Ben and Keith are The Two Gay Geeks behind TG Geeks Webcast, where our motto is “You name it, We talk about it.” ®
Our website, tggeeks.com, is headquarters for our Webcast as well as articles and reviews on a variety of subjects.
We cover all aspects of Geek-dom and Nerd-ery. As our motto implies, we talk about almost anything. We do tend to talk more about the Sci Fi, Comics, Film, Horror, and Genre, but we have been known to talk about Opera and Disneyland on occasion.
We have become passionate about supporting Independent Creators whether that is film, comics, music, or authors we are always open to talking with creators of all types.
So, come along and join our wildest ride in the podosphere.
Universal’s Classic Trifecta
After a naive real estate agent succumbs to the will of Count Dracula, the two head to London where the vampire sleeps in his coffin by day and searches for potential victims by night.
Dr. Frankenstein dares to tamper with life and death by creating a human monster out of lifeless body parts.
The Mummy (1932)
An Egyptian mummy searches Cairo for the girl he thinks is his long-lost princess.
In our second segment, we chat about Universal’s attempt at reviving their horror classics with the doomed Dark Universe. We also highlight recent articles posted to the tggeeks.com in the past week. As always we have our birthdays and we have the ever-popular feedback segment.
We welcome your feedback. Please, let us know what you think. Good or bad, we want to know and you could receive a shoutout in the feedback segment. Thank you for listening, we really do appreciate you taking time out of your day to spend with us.

Support Independent Creators
As you know we are huge supporters of Independent Creators and not just in film. TG Geeks supports any kind of creative outlet that’s independent in nature. We know we’re always pushing something, but we’re passionate about supporting indie artists. We ask that you to take a look at the independent creators we talk about and any others you may discover on your own and give a helping hand. It doesn’t have to be much, but every little bit helps in the scheme of things.
