301: How To Make A Uniquely Wisconsin Sci-Fi Channel

Both wacky and invasive! Another considerably over-length stroll through memory lane; this time, instead of the odd jobs, a very candid and personal discussion of possibly the one and only job where I was ever firing on all cylinders. Also: lots of musings on a Star Trek Section 31 series (including how it might actually work), a wrap-up of the thirteenth Doctor’s first season on Doctor Who, the Orville, Short Treks, and soundtracks, plus some shutdown shout-outs, an attack of the killer gall bladder, and much more.

202: Odd Jobs

Fall Preview Special! Live (at the time it was recorded) from Utah! An even longer-than-usual ramble about moving, working, not working, working some more, getting shot at (while working), playing impressive new Atari homebrew games, looking forward to an expanding galaxy of Star Wars and Star Trek spinoffs on TV, recent developments in space exploration, and why neither Doctor Who nor anything is being “ruined by the SJWs”. Really. (2:05:35)

104: Bulletin Board Systems

Parlez-vous ATDT15014521700? In the days before the internet, there was the BBS…and for some weird and probably unhealthy reason, your host wanted to run one of his own. A tale replete with BBSs, MIBs, not nearly enough +++ATH0, and numerous other unfortunate abbreviations. (1:15:38)

102: The One About The Rogues

A lot sooner than expected, it’s a solid hour of geeking out about all the things there are to love about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, along with a stroll down memory lane into Star Wars memories past. (1:02:02)

Get well soon, Carrie Fisher. If any of my circuits or gears will help, I’ll gladly donate them. 🙁
