Audio Ep. 16: I’m a Real Penguin

As it turns out, Penguins are the third largest flightless bird in the world after the Australian emu and the German mole rat.

After last week’s rather depressing adventure, Kiyan and Dylan are back to talk about a much more uplifting and funny… oh nevermind. Well it started funny and uplifting. It… just didn’t end that way. It’s The Holy Terror, written by Robert Shearman and released in November of 2000. The Holy Terror can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website. It’s also on Spotify.


Show-notes:


1:02 The M4 Sherman?
8:21 Googling “dammit dammit dammit” told me it’s from Robot Chicken, so let’s go with that.
11:32 According to “Jeffrey Tan, coach for sleeping habits,” no, you can’t drown asleep.
21:11 Surprisingly the punchline of R. Kelly’s “Trapped in the Closet” isn’t that he’s coming out of the closet. I think. I never finished it. And it’s still ongoing, so who knows?
23:57 Her name was Genie. No relation to the Disney character Genie, from the romantic comedy fantasy animated feature film Aladdin.
29:34 Ursula Le Guin’s “Why Are Americans Afraid of Dragons?” Knock yourself out.
38:03 Really hope that comic book bubble bursts soon. And that Neil Gaiman bubble.
44:12 Couldn’t find it within 30 seconds on Google, so I gave up!
47:04 A morphologist is someone who studies morphology. Duh.

Audio Ep. 13: Jedicopter

Only “Senator” Palpatine knows how to do the secret jedicopter move.

This week Kiyan and Dylan have created a new world order. Turns out that was our plan all along for this podcast, we were going to use it to start this new world order thing. Not sure what we’re going to do with it now, stay tuned. It’s The Sentinels of the New Dawn, written by Paul Finch and released April 2011. The Sentinels of the New Dawn can be purchased for $8 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


1:19 2012 is a 2012 animated comedy/drama based on the events of 2012 (the entire year). It was so successful, they made two sequels: 2013 and 2014.
18:47 Actually Hogwarts is Alnwick Castle in England. In the books/movies/HP universe it’s in Scotland.
20:20 The Art of War was written by Sun Tzu in 2006 after he lost a game of Risk and decided to take revenge in real life. Full book here.
25:39 Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law.
25:51 Bioshock Infinite is a video game.
26:40 God Medicine is a video game.
27:11 Former US president Grover Cleveland is a video game.
27:18 Here’s a picture of this blue guy. Not really sure who he is.
36:50 Gattaca is a former US president.

Episode 132: Until We’re At Satan

Only 66 more to go…

Who thought that a serial with the Master of all characters could be so horribly boring? THE MASTER! And it didn’t help that Terence Dudley has been consistently declining in quality since his first outing. It’s The King’s Demons, written by Terence Dudley and aired in March of 1983.


Show-notes:


0:28 We’re talking about the cool Iron Maiden, not the torture device.
5:40 Thank god I didn’t grow up in the 80s.
9:38 WOW.
11:51 Here’s more about beds in the middle ages. I say we all go back to straw. It probably builds character.
13:27 Apparently it was “rare” to do so. But I say more people should start doing it in real life. It probably builds character.
20:15 And who you never see again.

Episode 120: Wheelchairs are Insanity!

I hope that when the wheelchairs take over they don’t find this.

This week Kiyan and Dylan bravely soldier forth without their leading man Tom Baker. There’s this weird scruffy blonde dude now, can’t quite remember his name. Pete probably. It’s Castrovalva, written by Christopher H. Bidmead and aired in January of 1982.


Show-notes:


0:50 You can take a road traveled by a lot of people by reading “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost. I dunno how many people “a lot” is. Probably like 6.
1:52 Find that here.
4:30 But in case YOU didn’t know, here’s this super-clickable, totally-not-a-trap link.
6:02 Doctorin’ the Tardis…?
13:57 Just like this podcast!
16:10 Just like this podcast!
17:12 It was Bob Baker who co-wrote The Wrong Trousers.
19:57 Jim Jones was a cult leader best known for convincing hundreds of people to drink poisoned Kool-Aid. Except it wasn’t actually Kool-Aid. It was Flavor Aid.
22:39 Contrary to popular belief, the Large Hadron Collider is actually a real-world particle accelerator and NOT a fictional machine on Doctor Who. The LHC is well known for assisting scientists with producing some of the most interesting scientific materials of our time, such as quark-gluon plasma, a possible Higgs boson particle, and the turkey sandwich I ate for lunch yesterday.
24:49 M.C. Escher was a guy with a staircase fetish. He was born in the Netherlands in 1898 and died rotting away in a Castrovalvan jail after being imprisoned for making the city impossible to navigate.

Episode 104: Romana and the Chocolate Factory

Willy Wonka is a Time Lord right?

This week Kiyan and Dylan got through David Fisher’s second serial for the show, an arguably much better piece of work. It’s called The Androids of Tara, and it aired in November and December of 1978.

Dylan is not in the fabric business. Here’s some information on tweed because he doesn’t know how tweed works.
