Wild, Wild Podcast Season 5 Episode 8 - RAIDERS OF ATLANTIS (1983)

In this episode we leap from helicopter to nuclear sub to mysterious island in our pursuit of the Atlantis Interceptors and their quest for, well, who knows. It may not make any sense, or even really be post-apocalypse, but it fun will be had along the way - and after all, perhaps the true meaning of Atlantis was inside us all along.

Yes, it's the late Ruggero Deodato's bonkers Filipino action film Raiders of Atlantis, an odd entry in the Pastapocalypse sub-genre, but one that belongs there nonetheless. We discuss its origins, try to get to grips with its plot, and even find time to mention Oliver Onions again.

We would love to hear from you if you have any favorite post-apocalypse films. You can contact us on Twitter and Instagram or by email at wildwildpodcast@gmail.com. Please also remember to rate and review us on your podcast platform of choice!
