This week I'm doing my first solo episode. Instead of doing a standard radio-style show, I'm taking a running leap at a biographical style, so this episode is filled with stories of my early years and advice on writing that I know applies to every writer out there because I've never seen it proven wrong. This is all wrapped in a theme, and your challenge is to guess it before the 45 minute mark.

I hope you enjoy this experimental episode. I'm looking for feedback, so please leave your comments below or talk about this podcast wherever you normally discuss Spinward Fringe.

The music at the end of this episode is provided by WVM. I play the latest from the new album: The End Is Only The Beginning. The track is called For a Better Tomorrow (feat. Josh Freese). You can find his work anywhere great MP3's are sold including iTunes and Bandcamp.

Thank you so much for listening!

Ray and I take a look at Spinward Fringe Broadcast 2, in what turns out to be a fairly thorough and flavorful read-along edition of the podcast. It's not your typical read-along, rather, we have a great time looking at the book from every angle but in no particular order.

Until I re-read Broadcast 2 the night before as a noval in its own right, I had forgotten how much fun I had writing it, and how I think it wraps up the set of Broadcast 1 and Broadcast 2 nicely.

So, sit back, put your feet and listen in as Ray and I enjoy this book aloud, examining our favourite bits, what happens in the book, what the chracters experience and where we end up on the last page.

We're thinking of Bif Naked as she struggles with health issues, wishing her all the best and hoping she makes a full recovery. This week we play Red Flag from her most recent album: The Promise. You can find her through Bifnaked.com or wherever great music is sold.

Thank you for listening!

Sylvie and Luke join me in studio to talk writing, podcasting and how awesome the Facebook Page crew are. We answer the questions: What advice do we have for self publishers? For new writers? As well as: Why podcast? What's with the music? and I talk about how big change can disrupt the creative process. Stephen King and Russel T Davies (of Dr Who and Coupling fame), come up, as well as Wattpad and what the future of the Crewcast Radio Network might look like now that we have 15 episodes under our belt.

We round out this epic, afternoon filling episode by thanking the Facebook Crew for helping out in times of need, and the tip jar for the talent that enters the bunker to help me with the show.

This double sized episode also contains twice the music!

The first song is by that fantastic, whimsical band: Pomplamoose, called Little Things. Check thm out if you like what you hear!

The second track is by Stereo Alchemy, a new act with huge talent. We play the title track from their new album, God of Love. Check them out if your ears are pleased!

Thank you for listening!

I have the pleasure of sitting down with Sylvie and Luke for a fantastic Q&A using quesitons from the Facebook Page. We talk about where the material cut from my books goes, the Edxi Plushie and why it's a bad idea, evolution in interstellar settlements, what's next for Spinward Fringe merchandise, printed book availability and Luke talks about handling hecklers on stage as a stand up comic. I also provide an update on Broadcast 7 progress.

This fantastic episode is brought to a charming close thanks to Pomplamoose. We play a tune from the album: 3 New Songs! Woot! called If You Think You Need Some Lovi. Check them out on iTunes or www.pomplamoose.com

The Youtube clip we talked about with Luke Alberton performing on stage can be found here. Check him out! (Not safe for work)

Thank you for listening!

This is the first of the Q&A extraveganza episodes, where we do nothing but answer your questions! I also tell a couple stories, but back to the point. A few of the questions include: Where did the name Vindyne come from? What's with that Victory Machine? and What's my favourite drink? There are too many to mention here, so give this a listen! We also play some music by They Might Be Giants, tell you about a charity they're supporting and how to get some free tunes. Thank you for your questions, and thanks for listening!

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 http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bif-Naked/52180916228 and http://www.bifnaked.com/
