Welcome to the KMMA Media Podcast Network
KMMA Media was started by Kaylia Metcalfe.
Pages and Popcorn Podcast features Kaylia and her co-host talking about movies that are based on books as well as the original source material. We answer the age-old question: Which version is worth your time? (Could it be both?)
In The Ghosthropology Podcast, host Matt tells ghost stories, folklore, and tales of the weird followed by a discussion of what makes them interesting from an anthropologist’s perspective.
It’s A Queer Thang is a monthly show where Chris and Kaylia talk politics, pop culture, and local events for the Fresno LGBTQ community.

In this episode, Kaylia is joined by real-life archeologist Matthew to discuss this real-life event that was heavily changed to be a novel that was then heavily changed to be a movie. Join us for a discussion of archeology, history, badly inserted queer plotlines, and what Kaylia deems as an unforgivable literary sin.
Kaylia and Chris talk about this book turned movie that attempts to tell the tragic love story of two gay men through the lens of a (some would say unlikeable) straight woman. Is this all styles or is there substance in this book and movie combo?

Dudleytown is often described as one of the strangest and most haunted places in North America. In this episode, Matt tells the tale, then is a total killjoy and destroys the tale, and then discusses how the folklore surrounding Dudleytown came to be.
Kaylia and Sarah discuss The Quiet Boy (short story) and Antlers (movie adaptation) in the newest episode of Pages and Popcorn. When you base a feature-length film on an 8,000-word short story, you have to add some stuff. But some of the things they added were truly scary. We talk about the stories behind the…
In this episode, Matt talks with Dr. Alena Pirok about her recently published book The Spirit of Colonial Williamsburg, which covers the intersection of belief in ghosts, public perception of history, and ghost tourism.
In this special crossover episode, Kaylia (Pages and Popcorn) and Matt (Ghosthropology) talk about that 1970s classic: The Exorcist. We discuss the “true story” that inspired the novel, the novel that inspired the movie, and the movie that has inspired fear for almost 50 years.
