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. 15: Cyberman Sitcom ft. The Krynoid Podcast

Everybody is getting cyberized in Young and Cyber. Coming soon.

This week Jim and Martin make a tepid return to Trust Your Doctor. Apparently they really like Cybermen because if you’ve been paying attention the first time they were on this glorious show was to talk about Revenge of the Cybermen. If you haven’t been paying attention, now you know. Also, we chose this story quite some months ago (almost 6) so the fact that it corresponds nicely with World Enough and Time and The Doctor Falls is legitimately a coincidence. But we talk about them anyway. Obliquely. It’s Spare Parts, written by Marc Platt and released in July of 2002. Spare Parts can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website. It’s also on Spotify.


Show-notes:


6:38 Alternate limited edition cover.
1:23:27 Mostly Made Up Doctor Who Episode Guide is one of the best Doctor Who podcasts out there. Here’s their feed.
1:25:32 Check out Krynoid Podcast’s website, with links to all their other various channels. Seriously. Do it. They just put out their Stones of Blood episode. So that’s probably good.

Audio Ep. 14: The Mysterious British Part of America

No one even knows where this supposed British part even is.

This week we actually hear Tom Baker for the first time in 20 years! Can you believe it? He sounds…. exactly the same. Honestly don’t know what I expected actually. It’s The Valley of Death, written by Philip Hinchcliffe, adapted by Jonathon Morris, and released January of 2012. The Valley of Death can be purchased for $45 as part of the Fourth Doctor Boxset (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website. It’s also on Spotify.


Show-notes:

26:45 Meet Dave.
52:53 Krynoid podcast.

Audio Ep. 11: The Blood Tree

Not all trees bleed, but the ones that do… they’re pretty creepy.

I’m pretty certain this is the newest audio drama that we’ve listened to, which is kind of interesting because it’s also about the oldest (and one of the best) TARDIS team on the books. Unless, I guess, if you count just The First Doctor and Susan. Which maybe you should, I don’t know. It’s Domain of the Voord, written by Andrew Smith and released September 2014. Domain of the Voord can be purchased for $11 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:

11:48 Fish Fight is a new movie about some teachers engaging in Star Wars prequel style duels but instead of lightsabers they use frozen fish.
16:01 HE MUST NOT BE FORGOTTEN. Also the Monk was an advisor to him according to some book. What the hell.
20:57 Santorini
27:38 HEY NOW YOU’RE AN ALL ST
29:34 He must really not be forgotten.
35:36 That audio is Beached if you want to listen to it.

Audio Ep. 10: Milking That Hatchet Money

Apparently there are actually 5 Hatchet novels.

This week Trust Your Doctor makes it to the halfway point of the audio drama side-step they did. Which means next week we listen to another first doctor story and then work our way back up again. But this week, it’s The Anachronauts, written by Simon Guerrier and released in January of 2012. The Anachronauts can be purchased for $8 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


3:33 That audio is called Home Truths if you want to listen to it.

11:31 I read Hatchet as a kid. If you’re too lazy to look it up, it’s about a sentient hatchet that goes on hilarious adventures through the Canadian wilderness.
11:40 It’s actually My Side of the Mountain.
12:40 4 sequels, 1 series.
47:56 The Selachian Gambit. Can’t wait to listen to it.

Audio Ep. 9: Eat Light and Die

So this is what it has come to, the eaters of light have to die.

This week we decided to walk across a nice little moor in Scotland. We watched as someone just out of view got struck by lightning. It was really weird, there weren’t even clouds in the sky. We ran over and told us a story, the story of Helicon Prime, relayed to him by Jake Elliott. Apparently the story was first told in November of 2007. Helicon Prime can be purchased for $8 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


2:28 Season 6B was the B side to Fraser Hines’ hit single “Got those Season 6 Blues”.

Audio Ep. 8: Hyper Ancient

Everybody knows that the hyper ancient >>>> regular ancient.

This week we’ve reached the companion chronicles section of the podcast. Which means we’re at the non full cast audio section of the 16 week adventure. Which also means our episodes might be slightly shorter for a few weeks. Never fear, we’ll return to full 2 and a half hour length glory soon. It’s Ghost in the Machine, written by Jonathon Morris and released October 11, 2013. Ghost in the Machine can be purchased for $8 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


10:03 10 seconds on Youtube told me that this recording is actually the very first.
27:02 It’s actually from a critique of Descartes by some dude name Gilbert Ryle. I heard it really ryled Descartes up. Ha.

Book Ep. 3: Hate Fiction

Ogrons have a lot of hate stored in them.

This week we drop off the audio train for a little while to do a little mental stimulation. This week we actually had to do work for this podcast and read a book, which is honestly too much brainpower for me. It’s The Romance of Crime, written by Gareth Roberts and and published on January 19, 1995


Show-notes:


9:05 Most people don’t know this but Alcatraz is actually derived from Al Katraz, the famous Arabic poet known for mastering the haiku. One of his most famous poems: Raped by the inmates, and then beaten by the guards, then raped by the guards.
21:30 I never knew The Mask was based on a comic. Then again I never knew real life was based on a comic, so yeah.
21:45 No, he is. Nah I’m just messing with you, he’s not.

Audio Ep. 7: Card Playing Alien

Daleks are probably pretty bad card-players.

This week Mark Gatiss returns to the podcast. Sort of. I mean, he’s not a guest or anything, he’s just written another story that we’re reviewing, which mean’s he’s the first writer to cross mediums for us. It’s Phantasmagoria, written by Mark Gatiss and released in October 1999. Phantasmagoria can be purchased for $3 (or your local equivalent) on Big Finish’s website.


Show-notes:


1:24 Here is more info about false memories. Careful when looking up Berenstein/stain Bears info, people have been known to go missing after they found out too much.
4:56 Rounders was invented in 1760 by a group of disgruntled parakeets who were fed up with the lack of rounders in their society. It has since become one of the most well-known vegetables of all time, and is on display at the museum of natural history in New York, New York, USA.
6:55 RINGS.
9:11 He was an orange.
24:08 Here’s the video if you’re interested, which you shouldn’t be, cause it’s terrifying. I see it every time I blink now.
