Episode 119: A Scrappy Talk Show with Casper Van Dien & Jennifer Wenger of Salvage Marines

Original Broadcast Date: Saturday, October 22, 7pm PT

Take some time this week to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of chocolate cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world and working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. This week, what started out as a side project for Matty P’s Radio Happy Hour is now kicking off its 10th season with guests Casper Van Dien and Jennifer Wenger.

With a brief look back at our first episode ever, hosts Grim Shea, Marke and Jimmy The Gent go for a “where are they now” segment to check in with the indy movie Space Command (our first ever coverage) and a look at how the media landscape has changed these past ten years. 

Looking to the future, we bring you guest interviews with SDCC favorites Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers) and Jennifer Wenger (Confessions of a Superhero) to discuss their new Sci-Fi action series Salvage Marines and the San Diego Comic Con 2022 trailer debut and panel. Available now on Crackle and Popcornflix.

Salvage Marines Synopsis: The series takes place in a grim future of corporate tyranny where factory laborer, Samuel (Van Dien), is determined to provide a better life for his wife and their unborn child. Signing up for the hazardous job of a salvage marine, Samuel embarks on a grueling tour of duty in a war-torn universe. Brace yourselves for a sci-fi adventure filled with deep space combat and the drive to survive.
