Radio Free Skaro #355 – Click here to listen!

It’s only a week after Gallifrey One, but there’s no rest for the wicked as we bring you a very special announcement regarding Radio Free Skaro and the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo, taking place – surprise, surprise – in Calgary, Alberta from April 26-28! Event coordinator Shane Turgeon from Calgary Expo drops by with all the details including some exciting Doctor Who-related announcements. But wait, there’s more! As you may have noticed, the Three Who Rule let the news pass by the wayside during Gallifrey One, but there were so many interesting developments to discuss that a bumper list of news new and old is presented here for you to bring some sense of completion to your lives (but mostly to those of the Three Who Rule). Hooray!

Note: this episode was recorded before we heard the sad news of the passing of Dalek designer Ray Cusick. We will feature a short memorial to Cusick in our next episode.

Radio Free Skaro #326 – Because We Need The Eggs

Radio Free Skaro #326 – Click here to listen!

New Doctor Who! Yes, Asylum of the Daleks marked the return of the good Doctor and his erstwhile companions for the first time since last Christmas, and in high style with quite literally EVERY DALEK EVER making an appearance. What did the Three Who Rule think of Asylum? You’ll just have to tune in and find out, but suffice it to say their opinions were less than uniform. All this and Pond Life, an entirely too long rant about the BBC America specials, the universally beloved viewing figure recitation, and much more on this episode of RADIO! FREE! SKARO!

Radio Free Skaro #245 – The Howell Around Effect

Radio Free Skaro #245 – Click here to listen

The Miniscope returns to Radio Free Skaro this week, but with a twist. Instead of the subject being chosen randomly, musician Peter Howell’s work was specifically chosen for discussion, and instead of a discussion, why not interview the man himself? So, in tandem with Dr. Phillip Serna of Adventures in Time, Space, and Music, Steven got to talk to one of his early musical heroes about his many varied scores for Doctor Who from 1980-1985. Also, news and many fact corrections from the week before. What fun!
