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:


1:14 Can’t believe there’s XIV of these things.
1:19 The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars. I don’t remember the character designs being this wack.
10:07 Mickey’s Trailer
19:20 Australia though.
26:45 Meet Dave.
52:53 Krynoid podcast.

Episode 13: Zero People Were Entertained

Aladdin made zero dollars because zero people saw it.

This month Kiyan and Dylan made the decision on what trilogy to watch solely based on how long it was. In hindsight, probably not the best idea. On the other hand, we almost ended up with Lord of the Rings one time, and that’s the complete opposite end of the spectrum. So we watched Aladdin, Aladdin II: The Return of Jafar, and Aladdin 3: King of Thieves. Surprisingly we didn’t watch 4l4ddin: Four Dudes Animate a Movie for $4.


Show-notes:


3:37 Making of Aladdin.
12:40 Apparently Disney decided to take Aladdin a different direction than its previous movies. Sadly I wouldn’t know.
13:52 Humiliate the Boy. Notice the younger Aladdin.
14:00 Also notice how it’s the last song Ashman ever wrote.
20:52 The Genie was one of the first animated movie characters to be voiced by a well-known celebrity.
21:11 Scott Weinger’s audition tapes featured his mom.
28:57 More about Return of Jafar and direct-to-dvd sequels.
38:07 God that ticking is annoying.
42:43 People really overplayed the supposed sexual content in these movies.

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.

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:


6:14 Water World is a movie about the entire planet getting covered by water. It takes place in July 2017 so we only have a couple weeks left.
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

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.

11:40 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.

Episode 12.5: No Gods or Man, Only Theme Parks

Gott ist tot. Gott bleibt tot. Und wir haben ihn mit einem Themenpark ersetzt.

This month we actually did the impossible. We actually made a half an hour episode talking about a ~12 ish minute long amusement park ride. Have you ever seen another podcast attempt such a thing?  Yessir, it’s the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, at California Disneyland.


Show-notes:


1:52 The last ride he himself had a hand in, not the last one his cry-self had a hand in.
10:41 This song in case anyone wanted to hear it for some reason. Most people don’t know this, but Walt is actually the one doing all the vocals in this. That’s why the audio sucks, cause it was recorded through ice.
11:21 Little do most people know, this early Pirates poster was actually designed by cryo-Walt. No wonder it sucks.
13:02 It’s Walt Disney’s cryo-chamber.
13:56 Wish I could’ve been there on the day Johnny Depp was there. Seeing a famous pirate like Jack Sparrow play an actor like Johnny Depp would’ve been awesome.
15:28 This dog comes to terms with Walt Disney’s still-alive cryo-preserved body as his world goes up in flames. “This is fine,” he says, finally putting his past doubts behind him and accepting it all in his last moments. What a true hero.
21:42 If you don’t already know, Club 33 is Disneyland’s exclusive club. $50,000 down payment to get in plus $15,000 per year, so it’s actually not that expensive. Benefits of joining include access to an exclusive restaurant, alcohol in Disneyland, getting a cameo in a Disney movie, and free viewing of Walt Disney’s cryo-body.

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”.
4:46 Did you know America’s Rainforest Cafes are in danger of deforestation? Join the cause today to help save Rainforest Cafe and save dozens of indigenous gift shops and animal puppets.
40:05 This is his Crispin Glover’s face. Why is it so distinct?
40:48 Check out our other podcast Treble Clef.
