Episode 29: Injecting Horse Tranquilizer and Speed

Probably a dangerous combination. I think.

This week we approach a dangerous natural object that honestly we have no business being anywhere even on the same planet with. It’s a massive, world ending volcano. Although to be fair I guess Yellowstone exists. It’s Volcano, written by Alan Prior and aired on January 19, 1980.


Show-notes:

Episode 25: Sorry to all the Rods

Are there any Rods who even listen to this podcast?

This week we argue about what Science Fiction is. I mean, you’d expect us to do that when the podcast started, when we first started watching Blake’s 7, an allegedly seminal Science Fiction Television Show. But we didn’t until now, so that’s kind of fun. It’s The Keeper, written by Alan Prior and aired on March 27, 1979.


Show-notes:


16:33 Fallout is a video game series. They announced a new one a few weeks ago. Like most video games these days, the trailer just shows some glorified cg bs.
23:06 It’s Free for All.
24:55 Seamus Heaney was just some dude.
26:02 There are actually a lot more women in Beowulf than just Grendel’s mom.
32:03 Now you can join Mensa too. Click here to join now.
37:10 The glove part is probably a cestus. Thanks @NavajoBirdsong.
49:10 Thanks @billkendrick.

Episode 17: The Ever-Ambiguous They

No one ever claimed we weren’t ambiguous on this podcast, you know.

This show is getting increasingly stressful to edit because I continue to actually forget to do so. I always remember way late at night Monday evening. This is more behind the scenes in formation than you could have ever possibly wanted or desired, but there it is. This week it’s Horizon, written by Alan Prior and aired on January 20, 1979.


Show-notes:


6:33 Blake’s 7 in Character now has more episodes on Colin Baker and Dorian.
28:10 Making Blake’s 7 is a twitter account about the making of Blake’s 7.
30:46 The original Magnificent 7 is alright, but I couldn’t watch the new one for more than 5 minutes.
