Your Favourite Audio


I'm delighted to share the most exciting news of February. The eagerly awaited return of, and the link to, the new episode of Pex Lives.Kevin and I talk - for free, I'll remind you, we're just giving this stuff away - about the Peter Davison serial Kinda. Classic stuff to keep you company as you tidy that filthy hovel you call a home or commute to that job you can tolerate, or during the job itself, or however you listen to podcasts. i don't know, you can do as you please. But it is lovely to be able to continue to sit down with Kevin and still be chatting nonsense at eachother about our favourite show after all these years. In this episode, Kevin binds me to a promise to write erotic Tegan focused Dr Who fanfiction when I get 50 patreon supporters. So, that'll be a thing I spend my time doing.

Lee Russell is one of my best damn friends in the world and our Amicus podcast is excellent. Late last night, while recording an upcoming Wrong With Authority, my tongue slipped and I embarrassingly called him Lee Daniel. I don't know who Lee Daniel is, but I'm sure he's nice too. This is me and Lee, one of the most underrated characters out there on the internet, somewhere beyond the grave.

Speaking of WWA - the show about films which purport to be about historical events but which usually prove, on closer inspection, to be a catacomb of pointless lies - we're starting to pick up a little bit of steam and get them out more quickly. We consider ourselves a supergroup, which means we often find ourselves wearing tights on dark city streets, slick with rain. The latest episode was hosted by me, which means I didn't have to think very much and let my very clever friends be interesting as I asked probing questions like "What you think of movie? Good movie? Good." Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York.

I'll close this out with a plug for a patreon. Not my patreon, no, not the one over here  where you can get exclusive content from me for as little as a dollar a month, including very early drafts of the novel I'm writing with Kit Power and audio stuff. No, I'd collapse at such gauchery. I want you all to know that the man Daniel Harper has a Patreon and he is doing invaluable work researching the alt-right. Let me inject a note of seriousness into this post - Daniel is learning more than any of your favs about the fascists and fashish online and it is hardgoing work. Help look after a man who, I believe, will be vindicated in years to come for a far-seeing, far reaching project that will shine real light on where we are, how we got here, and where the racists will take us next.


Alright. Thank you very much for your attention. Thanks to Phil for continuing to allow me an amplifier on his site. Remember to back his book on the McCoy era, where he'll write in enlightening detail about the best Scottish Dr. Who.

There doesn't seem to be a link to Daniel's patreon.

How odd. I have also recently taken up running after years of associating physical exercise with jerk PE teachers.

Good to have you back.

Same! I'm not to the point where I'm enjoying myself yet (if I ever get there), but I'm losing weight. I chuckled as Kevin described podcasts as being a bit easier to follow while running because the level of attention needed to follow is a bit lower compared to audiobooks, since I'm watching classic Who while I run lol.

Looking forward to the next episode - I'm firmly in the "Snakedance is better" group (it's also my favorite 5th Doctor serial), though I love Kinda, too.

My impression is that neither Kinda nor Snakedance is generally favoured over the other, but most critics still end up with a strong preference for one over the other. It just goes both ways.

I feel like the burgeoning Pex Lives sporting goods range is crying out for the brand-name Muscle Brain to feature somewhere.
