Podcast #927 – “Sports & Sci-Fi” – 2402.11

This week with the Superbowl happening later today I thought it would be fun to cover sports in Sci-Fi. There are actually quite a few futuristic films that involve sports. First up I talk about various topics mainly related to what I’ve been watching lately. Some non-SF stuff too. Then on to the main topic.

I’m not the biggest sports fan but I appreciate sports and thought it would be fun to cover sports from a nerd viewpoint. I go over a number of films that involve sports in a Sci-Fi setting. Many of these I really enjoy too. As always I can’t cover all of them but I hope this got you thinking about stuff worth watching maybe later after the big game or sometime soon.

I’ll be back in two weeks with a new show. Until then take care and stay well.

Podcast #926 – “What If…?” – 2401.28

This week is a fun show. I decided to cover the MCU animated series called, “What If…?” for the main topic. Two seasons so far and I really enjoy this series. I cover the usual recent TV and movies I’ve been watching along with a few other details as well. Been a hectic couple of weeks since my last podcast. Then it’s on to the main topic. The “What If…?” series has been great and I give background and play some trailer clips to discuss on the show. It’s a very cool series and one all the Marvel fans should watch. We will be getting a third season too!

That’s it for this week. Hope everyone is doing well and I will talk to you again in about two weeks. Take care until next time!

Podcast #925 – “Star Trek: Resurgence” – 2401.14

Cool show this week folks. I got to interview the two writers who worked on the “Star Trek: Resurgence” video game (available on PC, PS, XBox). I spoke for a bit more than an hour with Dan Martin and Andrew Grant and we discussed the game in quite a bit of detail. I especially talked to them about the way the game is structured and the various decisions you make to shape your game experience. To me the game feels like you are put into your own episode of “Star Trek” that you get to play out. I’m not the biggest gamer around but I’m really enjoying this one. Big thanks to Dan and Andrew for their time – along with some free game codes. Listen to the podcast to learn more about that.

Next week will be a skip week but I’ll be back in two weeks with a new show. Take care until then.

Podcast #924 – DS9 -“Visionary” – 2401.07

For my first podcast of the new year I’m starting out with a classic style show. I do a full audio commentary while watching the third season DS9 episode, “Visionary.” It’s a really good fun episode to start the new year with. I also talk a bit about recent TV shows and movies I’ve been watching too. Hope you enjoy the show and I look forward to some more fun podcasting this year for all of you!

Next week will probably be an interview show talking to some of the people who worked on the new “Star Trek: Resurgence” video game. Hope you come back for that. Until next time take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast #923 – “The Orville” Music for Season Two – 2312.31

As has been tradition, Vartok does a guest cast either at the end of the year or first one in the New Year. He is here this week with a super cool podcast all about the music from season 2 of “The Orville.” I love the series and Vartok does his usual great job giving us lots of background info. Here is some info from Vartok himself on this show.

Owing to the influence of executive producer and creator Seth MacFarlane, the music to the spacefaring series The Orville, Season 2, is more than just a backdrop.  The music is really a vital force that propels the narrative forward, adding layers of emotion, tension, and depth to the already captivating universe of The Orville.  Composers John Debney, Joel McNeely, and Andrew Cottee, along with Bruce Broughton who created the Main Title and End Title themes, showcased their musical prowess delivering a symphonic masterpiece as you take a sonic journey through the cosmos.  Vartok presents his analysis and provides examples in this one-hour tribute to The Music of the Orville Season 2.

I really enjoy these podcasts as I’m a big soundtrack and music fan too. Big thanks to Vartok for this guest podcast.

A big Happy 2024 New Year to all my listeners. Hope the year starts off great for you! Take care and I’ll be here next weekend with a brand-new show!

Vidcast #922 – “Merry Trekmas” – 2312.24

This week it’s my annual Christmas vidcast. I look back on some of my favorite geek entertainment of the past year. There was a lot of great stuff in 2023. I also share a quick video tour of the “Rico Cave” as well as a little giveaway for my TSF Patreon supporters. Hope you enjoy the show and have very Happy Holidays! Vartok will be here next week and I’ll be back in two weeks with a new show to start 2024! Take care!

Here’s the vidcast!

Podcast #921 – “Picard Episode 3.1” – 2312.10

This week I do a full episode commentary for the first episode of season 3 of “Star Trek: Picard.” I first comment on the recent set of three “Doctor Who” specials and especially about the last and most recent one. Spoilers in the cast if you have not seen this yet. Then I move on to the Trek audio commentary. Really great to revisit this first episode of the final season of Picard. I forgot how much they crammed into this episode. It really does a great job at setting the stage for the whole season. Of course, we all loved season three and I had a great time watching and commenting on this one. More to come in the future.

That’s it for this week. Next week will be a skip week, but I’ll be back in two weeks with my annual Christmas holiday vidcast. Until then take care and be safe.

This week I just talk about several topics.
