Turns out said "tease" was at the very end of the podcast, where Eddie indicated that the schedule wasn't out yet, they were working on a possible special guest for opening night, yadda yadda yadda.
My ears pricked up, however, when he mentioned that on Saturday August 27 they were going to have a special event--an eight-film B-noir marathon, which would apparently have a prize or prizes for attendees who came and saw all eight films. Characteristically, Eddie suggested that the prize might be "a cocktail," at which Anne Hockens laughed and said "you've got to have something for the non-drinkers, Eddie!," there was the sound of a rim shot, and then they moved on. (OK, I lied about the rim shot...)
I presume that they'll work out something that won't break the bank, as I suspect that many folks will be interested in seeing eight B-noirs and getting anything other than a cranky back for sitting in a movie theater for upwards of ten hours.
More interesting to us (perhaps...) is the prospect of trying to name the eight B-noirs that Eddie will select to be in the lineup on that day (and evening). I wish that I could offer a suitable prize to anyone prescient enough to guess even six of the eight films that end up in the lineup, but I encourage those of you who can access the Board to take a crack at picking what you think he'll be screening on the 27th. My thought is that if a dozen or so of us took a stab at it, out of those guesses we might actually name all eight films.
I'm going to give it some more thought before posting, but you are encouraged to give this a shot. Feel free to simply post your eight most favorite B-noirs, even if you don't think there's a chance in bloody hell that Eddie will pick 'em all. As noted, let's try the "safety in numbers" approach and see if by doing so we can name 'em all. Let the guessing begin...!
