In this second part of the auto-biographical series, I discuss my biggest hero in life, and how wandering between jobs actually factored into the creation and appearance of Spinward Fringe. There's a little more humour in this episode thanks to misadventures with co-workers and there are more dreams at the end. There's also a lot more music! Here are the bands featured in this broadcast:


I play a tune from Monster Truck called Love Attack. You can find them on their website: www.ilovemonstertruck.com

Next in the hopper is In The Silence with Ever Closer. You can check them out here: www.inthesilence.net

Finally, playing us out is Cloudkicker with From the Balcony and The Focus back to back. Check them out on bandcamp: http://cloudkicker.bandcamp.com

Thank you for listening! I'm going to go shovel some chicken lo-mein and sweet & sour pork towards my face! I hope to catch most of it!

Welcome to the first regular episode of Where's My Flying Car? where we follow Ray's ADD down the rabbit hole to topics including (but not limited t0): A lack of space themed science fiction on TV, the SyFy Network, Uwe Boll (that director guy), Spike TV, some Spinward Fringe trivia, a conversation on how some shows just don't age well, Xena Warrior Princess, Hercules, Bruce Campbell, and our Blu Ray of the Week: Star Trek The Next Generation - Season 1.

It's the first half of an exploratory geek conversation, and we have a blast. The theme music is by the Omega Experiment. You can find them on iTunes or on their website.

Thank you so much for listening, watch for the second half of this, and for the Spinward Fringe Podcast, returning to your feed on Saturday!

I'm joined in studio by Sylvie and Luke for a fun-filled question period. Topics include: What's inside a Spacerwares store? What job would we take if we were aboard the Triton? Why are British people interlopers in Spinward Fringe? Is Spinward Fringe staying PG? There's another question or two, and we give out PRIZES! Tune in to find out why we're giving swag away, how we're deciding who gets it, and if you're getting any! You too could be a winner!

Special notes: There was a heavy vacuum noise throughout the episode thanks to a duct cleaning truck across the street, but after some serious work much of the annoying noise should be gone. I also messed up the name of our song this week, see below for the correct one.

This episode features Katerinah Joshephina by Universal Hall Pass - a fantastic, dynamic group. Check them out on iTunes, on their web page, or anywhere quality music is sold!

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 www.crewcastradio.com 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.

Crewcast Radio Broadcast 5

We say farewell to Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0: Origins - for now. Ray begins with his new segment: The First One's, or Ray's Tips For The Apocalypse. The topic of this mini-feature is food. We explore other topics including Randolph's writing motivation, the Graphic Novel and more!

We pick up where we left off with Broadcast 3. It all starts with my sordid past in Fantasy, when the names and places I made up back then were barely pronounceable by human beings. Real life relationships come up next, quickly followed by a conversation about fictional prison and a conversation about Agameg. Music? Walk Off The Earth! Find them at www.walkofftheearth.com

The Bunker is graced with the presence of Sylvie, otherwise known as The Minion from the Facebook page. Ray won't be recording new episodes for a few weeks, but he's left us with several more that will appear later. This time we answer qustions about wormholes, time dialation, the locaiton of the Bunker (our studio), why Sylvie is late to the podcast, I ask for help from Neil deGrasse Tyson, and I pronounce all the difficult names in the Spinward Fringe series.

Warning: The sound may be a little loud on this one, we're working with a new mixing board.

Thank you for listening!

The intention to move on to a discussion about Spinward Fringe Broadcast 1: Resurrection gets foiled by a number of excellent queries about Broadcast 0 and what may have come before.

After mentioning how fortunate Randolph is to have an active Facebook Page, this episode opens with a conversation about prequel novels / trilogies and other backstory matter. Other segments include Ray's quick comparison between True Blood and the novels the show was based on, as well as a Broadcast 7 update!

We continue answering questions from the Facebook page about Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0: Origins.My allergies continue to worsen as you can tell by the occasional sniffle, but we soldier on.

There are a few good questions on offer this episode ranging from "Where do you get your ideas for names?" To "Are you ever inspired by something you see on the Facebook Page?"

Ray also discusses his own childhood trauma, we review The Avengers at great length, talk about Spinward Fringe costuming (as well as the struggle of actors to fit into costume from day to day), and the hopeful future for Joss Whedon.

Ray reviews Wurm Online off the cuff, I talk about the early beginnings of the Spinward Fringe RPG, we promise and end to our look at Broadcast 0 - but that's a lie, we continue in Broadcast 2.

Other words and phrases that come up in this episode:

"Watch Mob" "Cattle prod" "Crafting" "Pull the Trigger" and "Distill"

Special thanks to Walk Off The Earth for the music in this episode! Way play out to the tune, From Me To You - a fantastic Beetles cover. You can find their upcoming tour dates, music and more at www.WalkOffTheEarth.com - WOTE.com leads somewhere else, so disregard that part of the Podcast.

The next Podcast will be released on Saturday, the regular day for our weekly release.

Thank you for listening!
