Description

Welcome to the greatest show in the multiverse! Strap yourself in for a rip-roaring rocketship ride! Blast off! Whoosh! From the back room of Altair City Spaceport's Rocket Tavern, the Captain discusses science fiction, fantasy, and horror; books, comics, movies, TV, games, toys, and whatever catches his art, music, and tech mad fancy. The UK podcast for the culture geek, technology nerd, and creative wizard is produced using alien technology, eldritch powers, and caffeinated beverages, since a summer night in 2012 fuelled by two double gin and tonics.

RRR 196 The Time of the Geek
00:40:10
The geek life of the bloody cold, the rusting, grinding, but still great (while it lasts) cogs of the UK's National Health Service, the effect of Dungeons and Dragons on the wizard's aris, the frustrating music of Blade Runner: 2049, The Survivalist, Doctor Who: Time Trips (again), The Walking Dead (spoilers), Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Finale (spoilers), and the continuing hell of buying rubbish things online.

RRR 195 The Geek Life Fantastique
00:35:36
The geek life fantastique of offline flirting using celebrity selfie props, and also the geek life of a busted Millennium Falcon, a big needle, a bad Valerian, a funny Thor, crooked spies, a return to reading actual physical books, buying something from Amazon, and praying that you actually get it, and that when you get it, it isn't the wrong thing or broken (these people are building a rocket), and the final, final, final draft of the book you just re-edited.

Goodness? Please! I was an 80s teen and, granted some of the movies and video games were great, but everything else was crap. Yuppies, greed, Thatcher, Loadsa, the Falklands, and we didn't even have the sodding internet.

RRR 84 Chat with UK Author Christopher Fowler (Roofworld, Psychoville, Bryant and May Series...)
01:26:36
This week I chat with prolific UK author Christopher Fowler, creator of the Bryant and May mystery series, as well as many other works of genre fiction, see https://www.christopherfowler.co.uk/ He also expounds some useful writing advice and, oddly, appears to share my difficulty in finding the new entrance of Foyles (about 10ft left of the old entrance - there's a big sign!) Despite his previous work in the film industry, deep connections with Hollywood, and the Bond films' cast and crew, he still can't help me get a date with Berenice Marlohe. Damnit. I also update you about my own writing and let you know what to expect from the show in the next few weeks.

We also discuss my continuing online dating saga, Ninjalicious, a job vacancy at Roy's Rocket Radio, listener feedback, how we write, Avengers: Age of Ultron and I moan about too many spoilery Mad Max: Fury Road trailers. George Miller, are you listening? Well, are you? We also stray into some audio production topics that may be of interest to prospective podcasters.
