An examination of Jerry Goldsmith's Thriller score "The Cheaters."
Show Notes

Phase 2 of the Goldsmith Odyssey Podcast Universe has begun! Jens has relinquished his regular hosting/editing duties (he'll remain involved in a variety of other ways), passing the baton to friend of the show W. David Lichty. David joins Yavar and Clark for an exploration of the Thriller episode "The Cheaters," an anthology show within an anthology show centering around a pair of spectacles imbued with mysterious power. The whole thing is held together by an intelligent, suspenseful Goldsmith score that also makes room for a surprisingly lovely character theme. Your humble hosts explore the way Goldsmith’s thematic ideas work and examine the effectiveness of the episode's approach to horror. Put on your reading* glasses** and join us for the start of a new era!
