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 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!
