Lee is joined this episode by his friend and fellow podcaster Vaughn Kuhlmeier to chat about an underseen Canadian exploitation film, "Siege" (1983), directed by Paul Donovan. Set in, and shot on location in Halifax, Nova Scotia (Lee's home province), some Canadian history surrounding the premise for the film, and some silly East Coast-isms are pointed out by Lee. Police brutality and corruption come up as they talk about the differences between American and Canadian police, and the obvious influences of John Carpenter's "Assault on Precinct 13" on this film. Vaughn also covers what he's been watching recently. So sit back, fortify your home from Canadian fascists, crack open a bottle of smooth Hermit's wine, and listen-in.
