302: A Man Of Action (Figures)

Now with kung fu action grip! A seven-year-old playing with action figures? Totally normal. Same kid picking up the collecting bug at 17 and keeping it alive (budget permitting) at 47? That’s where people start demanding explanations. A quick stroll down toy-collecting memory lane, encompassing both Star Wars figures and many others I’ve collected down through the years, plus you get to hear my psychoanalyzing my aforementioned collecting bug in real time…the results are a little surprising. And long-winded. Remember to save your proof of purchases so you can find out who’s the Bossk around here. (1:55:39)

110: In, Through and Beyond

This is not a drill! The Black Hole: guilty pleasure or maligned masterpiece? Maybe it’s somewhere in between. And maybe it’s a means of pointlessly scaring the crap out of a seven-year-old. Plus, year-end roundups of science and wonderfully geeky merch, a discussion of Star Trek Continues’ final and finest hour, and any excuse to subject you to the theme from Star Cops. (79:03)
