  1. Grimerica | #156 – Grimerica Talks Mythology, Spirituality & Much More with Gordon White

    Just finished listening to the Gordon White podcast. Wow … goes right to the top of the “Favorites” list along with Randall Carlson. These two guys have expanded my brain so much that it’s starting to leak out of my ears … and I love it. Can’t wait for him to come back for another couple of hours.

    Love the podcast. Keep up the great work, and Darren, don’t put a curse on Graham, O.K.? We need him around for comic relief. 🙂

    Welcome to the first episode of Consider the Ray Gun. That’s right, another day, another podcast thread. In a development that has been a long time coming, Daniel has decided to take a break from watching movies and television and is actually going to force himself to read books. This will be a catch-as-catch can kind of podcast, with a rotating series of guests, but in this one he’s joined by friend of the show James Murphy of Pex Lives and City of the Dead, and together they chat about Robert Heinlein’s controversial 1961 classic Stranger in a Strange Land.  Main Topic: Robert Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land.

  5. Pex Lives: A Doctor Who Podcast : Shabcast 23b - New Atheism is the Opium of Misogynists, Islamophobes, and Imperialists

    Yes, I use the Oxford comma.  I use it because it is sensible, stylish, and clarifying. Oh, and this is Part 2 of Shabcast 23, featuring the continuation of my latest chat with Daniel Harper.  I think the title is pretty much self-explanatory.  That’s my thing now.  Self-explanatory titles.  And Oxford commas.  They’re my thing too now.  And irrelevant commentary on my own style. Self-explanatory titles, irrelevant commentary on my own style, and Oxford commas. See, they’re nice aren’t they?  If that comma hadn’t been there, before the ‘and’, it could’ve looked like I was saying I now make irrelevant comments about my own style and about Oxford commas.  And clearly I would never comment irrelevantly about Oxford commas.

  6. Pex Lives: A Doctor Who Podcast : Shabcast 23a - The Ruling Class Thinks ‘Idiocracy’ and ‘Democracy’ are Synonyms

    Please find attached the latest Shabcast.  It’s the first part of another long chat between myself and Daniel.  In this episode we talk about the 2006 Mike Judge movie Idiocracy, which is ‘relevant’ nowadays as loads of people have jumped to the wrong conclusions about the Trump phenomenon and clambered aboard the everyone’s-an-idiot-nowadays-except-me bandwagon, using Idiocracy as a cultural touchstone.  Daniel has little time for the film and isn’t shy about saying why.  And nor am I.
