About Us


Cinema Supercollider is dedicated to smashing up cinema, one movie at a time.  We love all sorts of films, but particularly those of the low budget or b-movie variety.  That doesn’t mean we won’t ever talk about classy, award winning, big budget stuff; we just prefer the type that aims low and tries hard.

Megan Pedersen is a Chicago based performer, podcaster and game designer.  In addition to serving as a host of Cinema Supercollider, she was one of the core hosts of the Jank Cast, a podcast focused on topics in gaming, RPG actual plays and interviews with industry leaders. Her favorite b-movie is Future Hunters because it has everything you could ever want in a movie, including time travel, kung fu fights, Amazons, the Spear of Destiny and the lost tribe of the Mongols (who happen to also be little people).

Eric Ahlgren is a cool dude.  He likes movies and Frank Zappa.  You may have heard Eric on the late, lamented What the Fish!?! podcast from the Field Museum.  He is excellent at identifying all sorts of electronic keyboard sounds, especially from low budget movies of the ’80s and ’90s.
