Crewcast Radio
A podcast dedicated to readers of Spinward Fringe and other books by Randolph Lalonde. Randolph Lalonde hosts with friends in studio, like Ray, who was the first person to read the Spinward Fringe series.
Crewcast Radio Broadcast 10

In this episode Ray and I (Randolph Lalonde), discuss Spinward Fringe Broadcast 7: Framework after I thank some retired podcasters for giving me a major hand and holding them partially responsible for my online rambling, submit our popularity report, and I talk about a recent blog post where I cast out the whiners and thank the supporters. Our discussion about Broadcast 7 doesn't spill precious beans (meaning there are no spoilers), and we feature music from the Omega Experiment at the end.


Crewcast Radio Broadcast 9

We discuss all the characters in Broadcast 1, and wander into topics including: Artificial Intelligence's love for Birdhouse In Your Soul, character romance that never happened, I name the perfect actress for Stephanie Vega, what the podcast was supposed to be called, and how things get cut from the series all the time. Music in this episode is provided by Bif Naked! Check her out at and

The Twisted SciFi Interview

In this half of an interview with Twisted SciFi, I reply to questions about the categorization and form of Spinward Fringe, how I became a science fiction fan, the roots of my story telling habit, early rejection letters and more. Brought to you by the Crewcast Radio Network, this is my most favourite interview! (Now updated with better sound levels as well as a proper beginning and end)

We discuss favourite directors and actors who refuse to retire - to our glee, and the retirement of George Lucas. I talk about Frank Miller, using the name Frank Frazetta by mistake - sorry. Ray reviews the $99.99 Kobo Touch, and I detail the Spinward Fringe novel that will never be written and Ray has something to say about that. Music? Walk Off The Earth - Money Tree, a fantastic tune, check out for more info on them and the podcast!

With the help of our first special guest, Luke Alberton, we discuss gay characters in the Spinward Fringe universe, the production he and I are cooperating on, Ray does a quickie review of Ghostrider 2, his ancient EReader, I referee a session of Ray's tips for the apocolypse, then we play some Vegan Black Metal Chef. We had a blast.
