Wowwee wow wow! Friends, before we get into PLANET OF FIRE, we have a ton of Who News to discuss because in the last two weeks we've had the reveal of the 14th Doctor, news that Tennant and Tate are returning for something to coincide with the 60th, and maybe we have a new companion cast? Anyway, we cover all that and then get into the introduction…
 
FOUR TO DOOMSDAY! If the story Kinda has been our standard for bonkers episodes for years, it only stands to reason that the episode right before it is pretty bonkers, too. Right?! Well, imagine our TARDIS team encountering a race of frog-esque people who can download your whole self into some circuitry, build an android replica of yourself, and pu…
 
MOTHMAN! He's become the poster child for weirdness these days, but as part of our #RoadToHellier series, we take a look at the massive flap in Point Pleasant, West Virginia between 1966 and 1967. It becomes our launching point for a greater discussion of what the phenomena might be and what the purpose could be for 13 months of panicked fervor in …
 
Legend of the Sea Devils has now come and gone like the Easter candy we probably had too much of over the weekend! But like that candy, did we get hopped up on the sugar of the Easter special or did we eventually crash afterward and wonder what the heck we were thinking? This story is a bit of a mixed bag for us. There's lots we liked, there's some…
 
ELDRAD MUST LIVE! Yes, this week we take a look at Sarah Jane's final story, The Hand of Fear. The Doctor and Sarah Jane find themselves in the middle of a quarry (not surprising) during an explosion (fairly surprising) that dislodges part of an ancient silicon-based lifeform (definitely surprising) that’s been buried in there for millions of years…
 
On the evening of November 2nd 1966, Woodrow Derenberger was driving home from his job selling stereos and repairing sewing machines when he was passed by and then stopped by a UFO. The person who stepped forth from that craft communicated telepathically and introduced himself as “Cold”. What proceeded to happen from that point forward is one of th…
 
EPISODE 250, PEOPLE! Who'd have ever thought we'd make it this far! This time around we watch The Krotons (which were designed to replace the Daleks as the Doctor's main enemy...you'll see why that didn't work out). The Doctor, Zoe, and Jamie land on a rather stinky planet. Mainly, that’s because of the sulfur content, but it’s also stinky because …
 
With thanks (as always) to Mike Solko, we have our post-Gally review recommendation! 1963: Fanfare for The Common Men! An entire audio drama created from a small reference to a fictional band during the First Doctor's era! It's a solid story and one littered with Beatles references (and one glorious conspiracy theory) for those of you who love to l…
 
Yes, friends, we have been talking about reviewing The Web of Fear since before Gallifrey One this year, we were going to talk about it during our Gally coverage, but stars aligned such that we're finally now getting to it. And that's for the best because it's a story that deserves our full attention. We have the return of Professor Travers and the…
 
This month our #RoadtoHellier officially kicks off with a look at the Men in Black! These shadowy visitors have been around seemingly as long as the modern era of UFOlogy (perhaps longer, by some accounts)! But who are they? Government agents out to discredit witnesses? A secret government operating outside our own? Could they be, as Keel suggests,…
 
Podcastica's Animation Domination block continues with the First Doctor adventure Galaxy 4! While the story in and of itself doesn't exactly grip us--Taylor in fact calls this the least scary Doctor Who story ever--we are certainly entertained by the Chumblies, are impressed by a female-dominated cast (if only fewer of them were villains), and we f…
 
The Loveland Frogman! Yes, folks, strange things were definitely afoot in 1955! The same year that brought us the Kelly-Hopkinsville goblins also brought us somewhat similar series of encounters in Loveland, Ohio (right next to the Little Miami River, no less). What was the Frogman? Was he really all that froggy? Why was he seen again in 1972 and d…
 
Podcastica's Animation Domination is off to a very strong start with EVIL OF THE DALEKS! The Season 4 finale was originally supposed to be the end of the Daleks in Doctor Who (but we all know how that actually turned out), so it's chock full of fisticuffs, sword fighting, and (by the time we get to the last couple episodes) explosions galore! Plus,…
 
Heeeey we're doing the thing! I'm going to be honest with you, I am writing the description of the episode a couple days after having edited it and can pretty much only remember that we had a ton of fun doing MadLibs again. We talk about a lot of other things, as we always do, but I done fucked up, alright? Note to self: Always write the descriptio…
 
Friends! 2022 has already given us this little gem of an episode! That's right, we loved Eve of the Daleks! Though we have one minor nitpick, we were delighted by what Team TARDIS was able to do with a small cast, an enclosed set, and the old time loop trope! We got explosions, emotions, action, and the confirmation of the Thasmin Agenda! Let's gra…
 
The Future! That's right, friends, we are all interested in the future because that's where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives! That famous line by The Amazing Criswell permeates our first episode of 2022! And what does the future hold? We're not sure, but we make some predictions and share listener predictions for the new year. We …
 
Our six-week long rollercoaster of a story has led us to this! The Vanquishers! Does it stick the landing? Well, we have a long discussion on expectations and how excited speculation can maybe lead to unrealistic expectations. We liked the episode, don't get us wrong, but we have to wonder if the original 8 episode season order would have served th…
 
Regardless of your thoughts about Bob Lazar's story of working at a secretive location inside of Area 51 (S-4), his influence on the pop culture of UFOlogy in undeniable. This month, we take a look at Bob Lazar's story because there's just enough there to make it believable and simultaneously just enough there to make it unbelievable. Seb identifie…
 
We're back! We missed you! Did you change your hair while we were on hiatus because it looks GREAT! In this episode we catch up a little, but not as much as you may expect because we had ACTUALLY done that the week before in an episode that was eaten and cannot be released. But, hey, look, we talk about our favorite fruits so everything is all good…
 
Folks, we are barrelling toward the finale for Doctor Who Flux! Our penultimate episode, Survivors of the Flux gives us lots to chew on. We get a deep download of Division lore, a twisted history of UNIT, and our very own Indiana Jones-like adventures (complete with an amazing hermit)! We're still loving this season, but we're also really hoping it…
 
Sometimes there's an advantage to recording a day later that we normally do, especially when that day is Doctor Who's 58th anniversary!We dive into Village of the Angels, but we also have lots of news that dropped in honor of Doctor Who Day! And this episode just blew us out of the water! Possibly the second greatest Weeping Angel story ever. There…
 
Like a solid mythology episode of The X Files, "Once, Upon Time" gives Doctor Who fans some answers, a ton of speculation, and even more questions! This season continues to fire on all cylinders and if you were confused by the disjointed time aspect of the episode and the whole "we're hiding this character from the past and just making them look li…
 
Having seemingly survived the Flux, The Doctor, Yaz, and Dan are dropped in the Crimean War where the British are battling the Sontarans! Yep, they're taking advantage of the Flux to conquer Earth across time. Meanwhile, on the Planet Time, not all is well. Time seems to be sentient and the mechanisms in place to make it behave are in need of repai…
 
Doctor Who is back, baby! And hoo boy do they come in swinging! There is so much happening in The Halloween Apocalypse that we think we easily could have filled a couple podcast episodes about it. We are definitely going to need a bigger flowchart (or a conspiracy board for Taylor...he has some speculation about what's going on)! Either way, join u…
 
In May of 1973, a most peculiar thing happened in Sandown on the Isle of Wight. A girl, known only to us as Fay, and a boy, whose name we never learn, met a seven foot tall creature that for all intents and purposes looked like a poorly crafted clown. He communicated in an odd syntax at times and also gave cryptic answers. Despite having an encount…
 
Well, we could have spent most of the episode discussing news of our impending 13th season of Doctor Who (that's only two weeks away, if you hadn't noticed), but we also have a great episode to discuss this time! We continue the dinosaur trend with DINOSAURS ON A SPACESHIP. There's no sign of Samuel L. Jackson, but we do have guest visits from Mr. …
 
The Doctor and Sarah Jane return to present day London to find it basically empty, save for looters, UNIT, and dinosaurs?!!? Trying to sort out the cause of these time eddies, The Doctor & Sarah Jane also discover deep underground (former) military bases, MK Ultra-esque mind control programs, and a secret space program psyop worthy of Alternative T…
 
October is finally here and, with it, the spookiest month of the year! Join us as we discuss one of the most haunted places in America: The Queen Mary. From her life as a luxury liner to her service in World War 2, we look at the various events and mishaps that shaped her history. We talk about the hauntings aboard, when they started, and why perha…
 
This time we discuss the 5th Doctor story The Visitation! We go deep on the interpersonal dynamics on the TARDIS right now, marvel at a sparkly droid, and behold the joy that is the character of Richard Mace!Team TARDIS are finally getting Tegan back to Heathrow, but they’re 315 years early. That’s okay, right? The air is clean, the locals are...be…
 
Jump around! Jump around! In time, that is! This week, John & Taylor review...well, two different versions of Day of the Daleks! So you get the added bonus of us comparing what you'll find on BritBox versus the original broadcast version (and there definitely are some differences!). Regardless, Day of the Daleks is a little bit of an underwhelming …
 
Imagine yourself in a dark room in the middle of the night. Your only source of light is the glow of the shortwave radio before you. Your headphones are filled with static as you slowly creep along the dial. Amongst the background hiss are chirps, warbles, the occasional faint staccato rhythm of morse code. And then you stumble across a female voic…
 
John is back! And we're reviewing The Girl in the Fireplace! The Doctor, Rose, and (well…) that other guy, arrive on a spaceship in the 51st Century. No time agents about, but the power of the spaceship is being used to punch holes back to 18th Century France and the life of Madame de Pompadour. Rather snazzy looking clockwork droids are terrorizin…
 
This time Taylor is join by friend of the show Dan van der Werf who's chosen The Aztecs for them to watch. The Aztecs is an incredible story that shows just how powerful early Classic Who can be. Frankly, they both see much of the Modern Who template in this story! Join them for a discussion about the merits of this adventure along with some heartf…
 
As the legend goes, 2.5 miles under the Archuleta Mesa outside Dulce, New Mexico exists a seven-level base that is a joint operation between the US military and extraterrestrials. The legend of the Dulce Base is also something of a nexus point for various other legends that permeate modern UFOlogy: cattle mutilations, the MJ-12 documents, the whole…
 
This time Taylor is joined by friend of the show Terry Manley as they discuss the 5th Doctor story (and Season 19 finale) Time-Flight! It's a bonkers adventure with next to no budget that was all inspired by Peter Grimwade's hope that he could score a ride on the Concorde! But Time-Flight is a generally panned adventure that possibly would have wor…
 
Effective immediately there is a tax of five Talmars for listening to this podcast! Just kidding, but this time we watched the 4th Doctor story The Sun Makers! This is a bonkers tale and quickly becomes one of our favorites. From set design to costume to the dialogue, it was very clear Robert Holmes was miffed with the tax board and, well, sometime…
 
On the evening of August 21, 1955 in the tiny town of Kelly, just above Hopkinsville in western Kentucky, the Sutton family had an encounter that would radically shape their lives and the field of ufology for generations to come. Diminutive creatures (the number varies based on who you ask) approached the small Sutton farm house.The Suttons, like m…
 
The Doctor, Ian, and Barbara land on Dido...not the singer, don’t worry, she’s fine...only to be instantly separated after discovering a crashed rocket ship on the planet’s surface. But a slightly menacing figure named Koquillion is keeping crash survivors Vicki and Bennett confined to the rocket. The Doctor, however, having been to Dido before, fi…
 
In the sixth episode of Soundtracks on the Sticks, hosts Chris Damasceno and Jordan Young return and with some help from another long time friend Phil Nau (@shinryuucos), they go over the history behind Mega Man X being the series' first leap into 16- bit, how that affected its soundtrack on a technical level, their favorite tracks over the years a…
 
We're back after a slight delay! This time around Taylor is joined by Michael Nixon (of The Game of Rassilon fame) to discuss Christopher Eccleston's return to the role of the Ninth Doctor (this time in audio form for Big Finish)! Despite being quite happy to have new 9th Doctor adventures, we're both left wanting a little bit more from what Ravage…
 
The story goes that on March 16th 1957, a Venusian named Valiant Thor landed on Earth and was taken to Washington DC. He met the president, vice-president, and a host of higher ups. He scored himself a three-year lease on an apartment at the Pentagon while trying to sell Eisenhower on his fairly Christian message of peace and galactic brotherhood. …
 
The Doctor, eager to impress his new friend, launches them not 100, not 10,000, but 5-ish billion years into the future! Because nothing impresses a shop girl more than seeing her home planet blasted to pieces by the expansion of the sun as it approaches its next phase of life. But not all is hunky dory as glorified skin pancake, Cassandra, is plot…
 
A broken family. Secluded forests. A demon watching from the shadows... On the latest episode of IKWYPLS, we head deep into the woods for Jordan Graham's Sator. Our hosts tell you what they liked, what they didn't, and ponder the nature of 'artsy' horror.So, give yourself over to this episode, IKWYPLS is calling...Music used in this podcast: 'An Ab…
 
Cold War is a tight, well-directed base-under-siege story in which the base is a claustrophobic submarine trapped 700m underwater and they're under siege from the inside by an Ice Warrior! Grand Marshall Skaldak has just awoken from a 5000 year slumber and no one's offered him any coffee yet. Can The Doctor and Clara head off both an international …
 
13 years ago, the Doctor welcomed a daughter into his life. She was a...full-grown adult woman who could speak, handle a rifle, and was a clone of his hand (while there was already an extra hand of his floating around in the TARDIS!). Not your typical birth, to say the least! This time around, we review The Doctor's Daughter! It's a fun story with …
 
This month we talk about GHOSTS! While possibly the most subjective of all experiences with the Phenomenon, we definitely have some weird experiences while recording this episode! We take a high-level look at what ghosts could be and definitely hit on some topics we'll come back around to in greater depth in future episodes.…
 
Nobody loves birthdays like the folks at Willy's Wonderland, the titular children's entertainment center featured in this month's movie.Closer to Five Nights at Freddy's than Chuck E Cheese, Willy's Wonderland has been shut down for years while the joint's band of animatronic animals gathers dust on the stage. A nameless, silent drifter might be ab…
 
A quarter million years in the future (not that we're explicitly told that), The Doctor, Clara, and her two wards (remember Clara's nanny phase?) land on a theme park planet that's certainly seen better days! Things quickly go south as Cybermites kickstart the long-dead Cybermen on display and a high-paced, high-stakes story ensues! We discuss Nigh…
