Introduction Derek wasn’t allowed to watch horror as a child, but he was able to sneak the black-and-white monster movies past the parental radar. Eventually, he started watching modern horror, but he always held onto his love of the classics. After years of producing content for other podcasts, Derek M. Koch finally embraced his past and found his true path as a fan when he launched Monster Kid Radio (2014 Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Film Award, Best Multimedia/Podcast). Fostering his lifelong love for classic (and sometimes not-so-classic) genre cinema, Derek also produces the Dorado Films Podcast and co-produces the Hammer Films-themed 1951 Down Place podcast. Mention Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Julie Adams, Roger Browne, the Chaneys, Godzilla, the Gill-Man, John Agar, El Santo, Bela Lugosi, or Boris Karloff in a conversation, and you’ll have a friend for life. (Fair warning: that conversation may end up on Monster Kid Radio!)
