Syndication

In the second half of the pilot episode of Where's My Flying Car? we continue to rush between topics you'd find in a geek boutique that include: Light Sabers versus Nanoswords, Hoverboards by Hasbro, Pamela Anderson, X-Ray Glasses you can order from the back of a comic book, real life stasis, Peter DeLuise (that great director), Stargate SG-1, the True Blood Finale (spoiler alert!) and we recommend Buffy The Vampire Slayer for our suggested view of the week (spoiler alert!).


It's an epic end to an epic pilot episode. I thank Ray for joining me, and everyone else for listening to us! Please tell us what you think of our driving in the comments section!

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!

Where's My Flying Car? Broadcast 1

We don't have a Spinward Fringe Podcast for you this week because I'm busy working on Broadcast 7 and we didn't have the questions to do another Q&A.

BUT!

We do have the premeire of the new podcast from the Crewcast Radio Network: Where's My Flying Car? Our podcast about all things Science Fiction, Futurist, and Entertainment.
This is the Doctor Who Special, where I'm joined by Sylvie and Stephanie, fellow Doctor Who fans who discuss our encounters with the Doctor and celebrate the premiere of the new season of Doctor Who, on September 1 in Canada, US and the UK. I hope you enjoy the show!

Bif Naked provides the outro song: Spaceman. You can find everything she's done wherever great music is sold, including iTunes. You can also find her by visiting her Facebook Page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bif-Naked/52180916228).

The Spinward Fringe podcast will return next Saturday, and you'll find a brand new episode of Where's My Flying Car? on Wednesday, it's regular broadcast day.

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!

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!

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/

In the second half of an interview with Twisted SciFi, I suggest another SciFi author, some biographies, and answer questions about the research I do, my motivation for starting Crewcast Radio, the TV series, as well as future books. Brought to you by the Crewcast Radio Network, this is my most favourite interview! (Final version)
