Episode 214: Broom is Doomed

And so the age of brooms is over. I for one welcome our new mop overlords.

Well, this week we sparkle. Not that you can really tell, because it’s an audio podcast and not a video podcast, but just trust me, we are. We have the blinds open and the sun is streaming in and we’re just dying while we record. It’s The Vampires of Venice, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on May 8, 2010.


Show-notes:


7:15 This could have been an interesting thread about the differences between a stag party and a bachelor party until some no-fun-allowed nerds decided to close it for being off topic.
11:38 Check out Zebra, the world’s number like 3 or 4 Blake’s 7 podcast.
12:45 According to New World Encyclopedia, the population of Venice was around 124,000 in 1581.
24:48 Arachne I guess? But it looks like she more gets transformed into a spider.
29:35 Rosanna or Roseanne? Who rosanned better?
35:29 Toby Jones was the really famous British actor who plays the villain in Amy’s Choice.

Episode 18: BDSM America FT. Sgt. Draino

This week on BDSM America… no I’m not finishing this thought.

This week is our first episode of Zenith that features three hosts rather than the usual two. Because we’ve somehow convinced some random fan to actually pull out a microphone and record with us. Yes, this week we are joined by the illustrious(?) Sgt. Draino for Pressure Point, written by Terry Nation and aired on February 6, 1979.


Show-notes:


16:22 Oddjob is a character from Goldfinger.
23:18 Foundation is a book series by Isaac Asimov.
41:28 Blake’s 7 in Character is a new Blake’s 7 podcast that examines minor characters in Blake’s 7
42:19 If you’ve ever wanted to make your own Blake’s 7 teleporter bracelet, now you can with the help of this 40 year old TV segment.

Audio Ep. 17: Brutally Boring

Can you feel the change in the podcast? We’re going back to TV.

This week Kiyan and Dylan are approaching the end of the Dark Years diversion. They’ve listened to their final audio for now, they’ve read their final book (you’ll have to wait until next week) and so it draws almost neatly to a close. Almost. But not quite. Master was written Joseph Lidster and released in October of 2003. Master can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website. It’s also on Spotify.


Show-notes:


5:59 It was McKinley.
12:29 “Son of a bitch.”
17:53 It was Mrs. Norris. Thank god Harry Potter is over. It’s over, right? Right?
21:51 I didn’t look too hard obviously, but there really wasn’t anything definitive about green being considered the color of death significantly at a certain place/time. So yeah.
22:02 Monster House is a movie.
52:11 I won’t let my dreams be dreams I guess.
Also discussed in this episode: Goodnight Saigon by Billy Joel.

Episode 139: Batnipples and Robin

And the sequel, Batnipples Forever.

And here we see the return of one of the greats of Doctor Who writing. Mostly. The Krotons was a bit of a dud, but hey, it was his first serial. This week Robert Holmes returns to write The Caves of Androzani, aired in March of 1984.


Show-notes:


0:45 Apparently the reasons date back to medieval times. Figures.
4:58 And if you don’t know you can look it up yourself. I’m not gonna be the one to let anyone who doesn’t already know about it know about it.
18:19 Wait, no it wasn’t. -_-
21:15 Warning: this link is for true underdogs only. Click at your own risk.
26:16 Melange. The most generic name for a fictional substance possible.
30:53 More Bowie never hurt anybody. I think. Labyrinth is overrated by the way.
48:36 Not sure if this is what he was talking about, but this is the first thing that came up when I googled “mars blue.” So good enough for me.
48:47 Maybe it’s this one, but that’s actually Jupiter.
48:48 Dylan here, it’s this one. Although I’m not even sure anymore if it’s actually Mars. Word on the street is that it’s just a “landscape.”

Episode 129: Surely You Remember Liz Shaw

Liz Shaw was truly the most memorable UNIT member.

This week’s throwback to earlier serials comes in the form of The Brigadier Allistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart. The one and only, taking over for Ian. Yes, apparently the Brig can teach math? It’s Mawdryn Undead written by Peter Grimwade and aired in February of 1983.


Show-notes:


5:47 He uninstalled the randomizer randomiser at the beginning of season 18 in The Leisure Hive.
8:50 Thing.
16:27 This list is where the idea comes from. Wonder if anyone’s ever gotten all the way to 90.
20:26 Just like Cool Whip!
33:20 Batman gambit. Don’t ask why I know that. Do ask why I don’t know that.
44:54 Check out our other podcast Trapple Ploy.

Episode 125: Every Meme Has an Origin

Maybe one day Trust Your Doctor will be a meme.

He finally kicked the bucket. He took a dive. Got offed. Put on ice. You feel me? Yes it’s Earthshock, written by Eric Saward and aired in March of 1982.


Show-notes:


6:30 Apparently “Morphsuits” is a brand, which I guess makes it a generic trademark?
8:49 They also continue the trend of their costumes getting more and more cool. Seriously, I forgot how terrible they looked in Tenth Planet.
9:40 Don’t mind this blatant lie.
10:57 Yup.
20:20 Yeah, it does seem really bad.
22:55 What?
40:29 You heard it here first. Doctor Who stories have no plot.

Episode 95: He Keeps His Fortress in His Mattress

I keep my mattress in my fortress but that’s personal preference.

This week Kiyan and Dylan are now in 0 A.N.H. (After New Hope). In the coming weeks [it’s unlikely that] they’ll discuss the effects of Star Wars on Doctor who. The serial this week is the first of season 15, The Horror of Fang Rock, written by Terrance Dicks and aired in September of 1977.

Episode 85: Rainbow Tunnel of Death

The colors! They burn!

This week Kiyan and Dylan make up a new term (biobabble), sort of explore a serial from Doctor Who, and indicate that Kiyan is half asleep. It’s been quite a week. The serial sort of covered this week is Pyramids of Mars, which was written by Stephen Harris (in reality Robert Holmes)  and aired in October and November of 1975.

Episode 84: When The Scarf Hits The Fan

There were little scarf bits everywhere. It was a disaster to clean.

This week Kiyan and Dylan put forward their life’s work in harnessing the power of podcasting. They successfully harness pure podcast ether to create this episode about Planet of Evil, which was written by Louis Marks and aired in September and October of 1975. Watch out, pure podcast ether is toxic in large doses.

Here’s a comparison between greyscale and color images of the Addam’s Family Mansion.

Episode 79: Stationed Outside the Station

The guards just hang out in space.

This week Kiyan and Dylan venture into what is supposedly one of the best classic who stories and then create what is supposedly our most recent episode. I’m not actually sure if it is, I mean, it will be until Episode 80 comes out. Anyway this week they watched The Ark in Space, which aired in January and February of 1975.
