About This Show
Hammered is a podcast about Hammer (the studio) and not hammers (the tools).
Starting with The Quatermass Xperiment (1955) and ending (maybe) with To the Devil a Daughter (1976), your host J G Byrne - aided by an undead army of super-guests - will chronologically and (kind of) critically and (hopefully) amusingly work through the studio's horror releases. One film at a time.
Original music by the mighty David Blake.Read more »

Episode 4: The Abominable Snowman (1957)
Wrap up warm and join Dan Smith and I in the high Himalayas as we prove that the word 'abominable' is bloody hard to say (for me at least).
We talk colonialism. We talk monkey suits. We talk the annihilation of the self.
Plus, y'know, hydrogen Bombs. And the extinction of humankind, Yeti mind control, Germanic Tibetan monks and lots more.
Music - as always - is by the indefatigable (and lovely) David Blake.Read more »
