About Doctor Who: Radio Free Skaro
Radio Free Skaro is possibly the most popular, most prolific and charmingly irreverent (but never irrelevant) Doctor Who podcast around. Since August 2006, hosts Warren Frey (in Vancouver, BC) and Steven Schapansky (in Edmonton, AB) have provided listeners with their brand of amusing Doctor Who praise and punishment. A year later, Chris Burgess (also in Edmonton, AB) was added to the team, and The Three Who Rule were born.
Recommended by Doctor Who Magazine and voted most popular Doctor Who podcast by members of Gallifrey Base, Radio Free Skaro provides an entertaining and diverting listen for the diehard or casual Doctor Who fan. New episodes usually appear on Sundays, following a loose magazine format of the three hosts discussing the news and events of the past week in the Doctor Who universe. Extra features include fan commentaries for classic series and new series episodes of Doctor Who, interviews of some of the brightest Doctor Who luminaries and our massively popular Miniscope that profiles a writer, director or composer. Radio Free Skaro is also the official podcast of Gallifrey One, the world’s largest and longest-running fan-run Doctor Who convention.
