Our first new format show is out and it’s a monster size issue 🙂
This time we do the regular main show/book/audio/topic recommendation, which this time is the 1981 BBC Radio 4 adaptation of JRR Tolkein’s The Lord of the Rings. And yes the movies get mentioned too 🙂
There’s some topical comment about the Buffy “reboot”, a huge comics recommendation for SAGA by Brian K Vaughn and Fiona Staples – that’s sort of the Show A part and then we hear right on into the Show B part with a terrific crew chat about the topic of our very first show, the amazing Sense8. Since we did that, there’s been season 2 and the grand finale, so there’s a whole bunch of Sense8 goodness that we didn’t get to cover last time.
And that’s how we’ll continue. A show A part where we make a new recommendation and then the show B chat based segment based on the show A part of the previous show, so you can always just leave the spoilerific half until you have seen/heard/read the subject of the chat part if that’s how you want to do it.
So here it is – the RSS feed link is top left of this page as usual or you can go to
