Next live podcast: Sunday, December 23rd, 2pm PST with Mike Spiegelman, Carl, and Ira Emsig on

5/14/17 Episode 49: Mechanized Death (1961)

Listen to the podcast Let's Watch A Full-Length Movie on YouTube, embedded below, and watch Mechanized Death (1961), embedded above, at the same time. Start with the podcast. .

Co-host Carl and I went to the same high school where this film is legendary. Our high school would play this "educational short"during Driver's Ed classes. Mechanized Death (1961) teaches safe driving by endlessly showing car fatalities. It's horrific. School stopped showing it by the time I was in class, but they would talk about Mechanized Death, show a lesser short, then turn it off 5 minutes in. Cool kids in our school had a punk band called Mechanized Death. The band got into an argument with Mr. Dino's Pizza and then held a "Rock Against Dino's" concert on the sidewalk outside Mr. Dino's. Anyway, Happy Mother's Day!
