Radio Free Skaro #374 – The Inside Story

Radio Free Skaro #374 – Click here to listen!

rfs374The Three Who Rule went west to Westercon this week, special guests of the 66th edition of one of the longest running science fiction conventions in the world. Much fun was had, much sun was enjoyed, and all three of the RFS hosts were very active on a variety of panels throughout the weekend. One such panel devoted to the history of Radio Free Skaro is presented in this episode, in which the past seven years of RFS podcasts are recounted, the highs, the lows, from humble beginnings to the recent triumphs of today (what other podcast has had a commentary of Delta and the Bannermen, we ask you?). We hope you enjoy our introspective look at a podcast that we truly do enjoy producing every week to hopefully entertain and distract you from your minor inconveniences.

Radio Free Skaro #280 – The Devil In The Dark

Radio Free Skaro #280 – Click here to listen!

The dark cloud from last week’s pirate adventure has lifted and The Three Who Rule are able to take solace in blathering over one of the best-received episodes of Doctor Who from this past series. The Doctor’s Wife gets the commentary treatment, and – short story even shorter – it’s just as well-loved this time around as when we first saw it half a year ago. Also, as we start to gear our brains toward conventions such as Chicago TARDIS and Gallifrey One, we sink our teeth into some details about the recently-announced official convention. Does it sound worthwhile?

Radio Free Skaro at Chicago TARDIS 2011

Chicago TARDIS, the Midwest’s premier Doctor Who convention, announced today that Alex Kingston, River Song herself, will be a guest at the upcoming 2011 edition of the convention which takes place from November 25-27 at the Westin Lombard Yorkton Center in Lombard, IL. Kingston joins previously announced guests Peter Davison, Ben Aaronovitch, Nick Briggs, Jason Haigh-Ellery, Benjamin Cook, Beth Chalmers, Arnold T. Blumberg, and Toby Hadoke.

Radio Free Skaro has in past provided extensive coverage of Gallifrey One, the world’s preeminent Doctor Who convention which takes place in Los Angeles every February, and we’re pleased to say that we will be doing the same for Chicago TARDIS this year. One of our number, Steven, will be in attendance at the convention, talking to the guests and attendees and gathering interviews and such for Radio Free Skaro podcasts. It will be a grand time, and we hope that as many of you who listen to our podcasts can make it down to Chicago on Thanksgiving weekend.

Check out the Chicago TARDIS website for more details about the convention!
