Audio 18: Cheesegrating Yourself (The Sirens of Time)

Nothing more grating than a cheese grater, especially when you’re using it to grate yourself. Going to town with it on your own body. Turning yourself into a bloody pulp if you know what I’m saying. Tearing your flesh to shreds if you catch my drift. Permanently maiming yourself in the most hideous and painful way possible if you get my meaning. The grating halt to which our enjoyment of this audio came in the story’s fourth part is pretty high up there on the gratingness scale too though, I guess. It’s The Sirens of Time, written by Nicholas Briggs and released on July 19, 1999

7:04: For the love of god, don’t listen to our episode on The Airzone Solution.
8:30: I’ll just link the page for this audio on the Big Finish site so you can see the cover of this audio.
15:30: Know Your Meme has details on the “reaction guys” meme. Here’s the 2014 reunion as a side-by-side comparison.
16:46: Sigh, something something TARDIS wiki something something artron energy.
24:35: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast, our classic sci-fi podcast.
42:15: Here’s a pretty decent page on whether or not viruses are alive (it’s up for debate) and how they differ from other lifeforms. I think when most people think “virus,” they’re thinking of bacteriophages, which look like microscopic robots. These things attack bacteria and are supposedly one of the deadliest beings on Earth. Luckily, they’re completely harmless to humans.
1:08:53: Here’s a sneak peek at what we’re covering next week, courtesy of the TARDIS wiki.
