Episode 229: If We Stop the Podcast, We Die

At least we only have to do this for the rest of our lives.

Look. I run this podcast. I edit it. I maintain the website. Basically what I’m saying is that it’s my podcast. No one else’s. Am I doing this God Complex thing right? I actually don’t think I am now that I think about it. Close enough. I’ll have to look at Steven Moffat for more examples I guess. It’s The God Complex, written by Toby Whithouse and aired on September 17, 2011.


Show-notes:


1:27 Tension and release is a pretty big tenet of comedy in general and has a history of theory behind it. This article puts at least some if it in perspective.

2:15 Can’t believe there are already 13th Doctor books.

25:42 Check out our Blake’s 7 podcast Zenith.

Episode 226: Fast and Furious: Leadworth Drift

Very fast and furious when you really think about it.

This week we try to stop one of the biggest tyrants in history and then promptly decide to dick around and not even do that. I mean, if you have the chance to change the entire course of human history, why would you? It’s Let’s Kill Hitler, written by Steven Moffat and aired on August 27, 2011.


Show-notes:


17:07 The Nuremberg trials started in 1945.
17:38 Meet Dave is movie about a bunch of people inside Eddie Murphy. I’ve never watched it, but I’m sure it’s even better than it sounds.
19:30They don’t look that similar to the Mister Handy line of robots from Fallout.
29:06 Check out Zenith, our Blake’s 7 podcast.

Episode 210: Long Live the King

Can you believe we finally got a Lion King/Doctor Who crossover?

This week we do a total reboot of the podcast. Complete restart. Everything is going straight back to the beginning, we’re starting it all over. We’ve scrapped the format. We’ve started again. As the show is too! It’s The Eleventh Hour, written by Steven Moffat and aired on April 3, 2010.


Show-notes:


10:18 What I Did In My Christmas Holidays By Sally Sparrow is a story by Stephen Moffat and the story Blink was based on. The BBC has the whole story up on this page.
11:36 Rose was the first episode filmed of the first series. After Rose they went right to Aliens of London.
13:15 All of what Framestore has done is basically up on their website, so check that out if you want to see more of what they worked on.
13:33 Early Man is about cavemen and stuff and is from Aardman Haven’t watched Early Man, or even most of their animations, but Wrong Trousers is probably still the best.
29:49 Most of the ones I saw had mini telescoping ones on the side, like this one from Amazon.
36:30 Spiral Scratch is a Sixth Doctor book by Gary Russel. I wouldn’t really recommend it.
36:38 Jellied eels are a traditional London dish. Can’t believe I can’t get them anywhere in Southern California. Anyway, they look disgusting.
40:01 Wikipedia: “A kissogram, also called kissagram (short for kissing telegram), is a message delivered along with a kiss, usually arranged as a fun surprise for a person for a special occasion.” This probably isn’t a widely-used, cause that paragraph also mentions Doctor Who.
48:19 It’s not a real company.
50:15 Matt Smith said Patrick Troughton was his favorite Doctor at Doctor Who Convention 2012.

Episode 202: Books Suck

Unlike books, however, River is actually useful.

Every once in a while we deserve to take a digression, I think. A nice little trip down the yellow brick road so to speak. Of course, it just so happens that this digression is all of the episode, but you know, whatever! It’s Silence in the Library & Forest of the Dead, written by Steven Moffat and aired on May 31 and June 7, 2008.


Show-notes:

12:36 David Bowie had liver cancer.
32:51 St. Elsewhere is a medical tv series.
48:04 Lingthusiasm is a linguistics podcast.
49:35 The Night is Short, Walk on Girl is a Japanese animated movie.
1:00:44 The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe is a 2016 novella by Kij Johnson.
1:04:49 We have a Blake’s 7 podcast called Zenith. It’s alright I guess.
