#24: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy / Gallifrey One 2019

February 16, 2019

This week we’re talking Slartibartfast, Zaphod Beeblebrox, and Ford Prefect. No, we aren’t advertising for some weird diet shake, an odd new laundry detergent, or a car that ceased production in 1961…it’s just a few of the interestingly named characters from the 1981 BBC TV adaptation of THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY. Ashley, a huge fan of the book series, wonders if one needs a live action version of a near perfect story. For Dave, who knew the story from books, radio and the series, his pick is pure nostalgia. Will it stand the test of time? Speaking of time, we’re recording this episode live-ish from GALLIFREY ONE 2019, the US’s largest fan-run DOCTOR WHO convention. We’ll rundown some of our favorite moments from the conference so far, plus give a brief history of how Dave and Ashley got into WHO in the first place.

Extra #1: ROMA (2018)

Extra #1: ROMA (2018)

February 4, 2019

Dave and I saw a truly outstanding film this weekend, and although it breaks the rules for our podcast, we really wanted to talk about it. The film was ROMA. Director Alfonso Cuarón takes us into his childhood in the Colonia Roma neighborhood of Mexico City. Told from the perspective of the beloved nanny who helped raise him and his siblings, this film is gorgeous from first shot to last, and it is all the things a film should be: engaging, evocative, deeply moving, and most of all profoundly human. Go see it if you haven’t, and maybe see it again if you have.
