From Terror Transmission:
You’ll have plenty to be afraid of before this episode is over. And that’s because Matt and Jason will be putting electrodes to foreheads for the 1931 groundbreaking horror classic, Frankenstein. Celebrate this precious new life brought into a cruel and undeserving world by joining your handsome hosts for chatter on Boris Karloff, Universal films, the Mary Shelley novel, the joys of drinking, the meaning of life, battle scars, foursomes and other sordid affairs. After M&J have laid this one to its final resting place, keep listening as they bring you their thoughts on recent DVDs seen. It’s alive, it’s alive, IT’S ALIVE!
This commentary can sync with the film, but they pause the movie at (announced) times.

Maria just said goodbye to her father. And we should say goodbye to Maria, too. Yeah. … Goodbye, Maria! [laughter] See ya! … Watery grave.— ,
