In this episode I reinforce my goals for this year, setting expectations for Broadcast 8, 9, and I talk about what it took to responsibly step back and figure out when those can be expected. We also had a major incident in studio involving some water, so the computer we normally use for podcasting is not available. We recorded on a Mac Mini and use a Cloudkicker tune for the temporary entry theme.

Luke Alberton, from another podcast: An Axe To Grind, co-hosts this episode with me as we talk about my month off, a couple adventures, and what lies ahead.

Yesterday Crewcast Radio obtained permission to use the music of Amanda Palmer so we are pleased to present Want It Back, a track from her latest album: Theatre Is Evil. 

Thank you so much for listening!

This is our first real geek news episode, and it begins with a segment I (Randy) would like to call; "Leave It All In" or, "They Had No Idea I Was Rolling," or something like that. For the first time in studio, Sylvie, Stephanie and Randy are joined by Andy, a time-travelling, kick-ass commenter who happens to be anchored in our time thanks to our limited technology.

We wanted to talk about time travel, but there was so much important news to share instead, so you get the play by play of an interesting month in excellent Geek Entertainment news and all the round table commentary that comes with it. Actually, our table is square, but since there's no video for this, or any episode, I hope you won't notice the difference. We also take a moment to talk about how our media is packaged these days: Are the super-pack DVD+Blu-Ray+Digital+Special Features discs and their variations worth it?

I (Randy), begin with an apology to Stephanie, and we launch into news topics ranging from Star Wars, Disneyland, Clerks 3, Kevin Smith, Game of Thrones, a quick look at Geek-worthy new releases in Blu-Ray/digital/DVD, and a couple other topics.

ImageIn this double episode, Stephanie, Sylvie and I take our first run at a discussion about women in contemporary North American fiction. I like to think that we did well in this episode discussing heroic women in fiction as well as a range of other related topics including prejudices and double standards.

This was originally going to be a split episode, but it became plain to me (Randy), that this episode had to stay in one piece because we get a little serious about things and we come to a conclusion that I think requires the proper context.

Ultimately, our discussion took a life of its own and went in an unexpected, but interesting direction. The topic was much larger than we could have contained in the time given, so I'm sure we're going to revisit this topic in the future from a different angle.

Thank you so much for listening, please share your comments on this topic and our approach and / or conclusions. I'm begging here, we want to hear from you.

Sylvie, Stephanie and Randy return after a hiatus with our likes and dislikes in film and television for 2012. 

It's a celebratory episode because there were many great things about 2012, so this episode is largely positive.
 
We've changed to a half hour format, and we'll be back with a new fix every Wednesday, thank you for listening!
 
Our theme music is provided by Incompetech, and the tune is called Pinball Sprting.

angelmuppetWe catch up wish Sylvie, Stephanie and Randy as they recover from the various ailments that kept us away from our microphones for so long. We start by talking about what we plugged in to while we were immobilised, and move on to some big news in Geekdom that we missed such as…

 
The Blu-Ray version of Season 1 and 2 of Star Trek The Next Generation, Sherlock BBC season 2 on Blu-Ray and Netflix, The Young Indiana Jones and why you should get your set NOW if you want one.
 
We go into the big shifts in the Science Fiction world recently, like Disney purchasing Lucasfilm (Star Wars, Indiana Jones). We take positive and negative sides of the issue and discuss good and bad points of one of the biggest franchises of all time being bought by the largest children entertainment company in history.
 
Other side-topics include: Geriatric Indiana Jones, errors in Star Wars past (including the 'Han Shot First' issue), ET, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), I Dark Overlord, and much more…

Spinward Fringe Broadcast 7: Framework Cover

This broadcast is all about Spinward Fringe Broadcast 7: Framework. Sylvie and I delve as deeply as we can into the book, discuss some controversial parts, and answer many, many questions directly from readers. There are also a few serious behind the scene moments, and tales of scenes that were cut entirely. The best thing about this episode? You guys. This e

pisode exists because there was a serious demand for it, and you gave us some fantastic questions. So many, in fact, that we'll do another Q&A about Broadcast 7 if we get a few more. 

MASSIVE SPOILER ALERT! If you haven't read Spinward Fringe Broadcast 7: Framework, then you're going to want to skip this episode entirely. We take the gloves off and get right into the details.

Thank you for supporting this book, and for listening to Crewcast Radio. We're having so much fun, and there's so much more to come!

In this mini-episode, I talk about the hiatus we've taken, when we're coming back and what we'll be doing when we do. I also play some Bif Naked and almost get into a religious argument with myself about the Holidays.

Want to know what happened to us and the plan for the near future? Here it is!

Thank you for listening!
