Haven't listened to the entire thing (it's VERY long, at nearly 80 minutes!). However, I found it to be EXTREMELY informative, way much more so than the other monotonous, dull guides currently up on the internet. Ben Snow talks largely about the process of creating 1984 Arnold Schwarzenegger, and "Brian" talks about the miniature work on the film.
Basically, it is revealed that Gio Nakpil (!) did the young Arnold Schwarzenegger model, based on scan data from the 1983 bust from Stan Winston Studios (now known as "Legacy Effects"). It's also said that the artists at Stan Winston back then added skin pore detail, and that the team was not satisfied with it. So, they went out and got scan data from an actual person, an actor, in his mid-to-late 20's! There's loads more and I'm only about 1/3 of the way through!
Hmmm....would be interesting if Gio could post up here to post his thoughts on working on T:S!
