The Spinward Fringe Podcast 10: The First One With Broadcast 7

In this episode Ray and I (Randolph Lalonde), discuss Spinward Fringe Broadcast 7: Framework after I thank some retired podcasters for giving me a major hand and holding them partially responsible for my online rambling, submit our popularity report, and I talk about a recent blog post where I cast out the whiners and thank the supporters.

Our discussion about Broadcast 7 doesn’t spill precious beans (meaning there are no spoilers), and we feature music from the Omega Experiment  (iTunes Link)at the end.

Thank you for listening!

Crewcast Radio LIVE!

There is a possibility that we will eventually be able to do live shows. I say it’s a ‘possibility’ because it depends on how available all the hosts are. A live podcast with one host isn’t really that much fun. So, right now, I’m information gathering and getting ready to present the idea to Ray, Sylvie and possibly others in the near future.

We do have the cameras, we even have a gimmick or two, and now we have the live playback equipment to have some real fun. I even know which service will carry the live show, and it won’t be UStream. The question is, when would you guys n’ gals like to see it happen?

There’s a survey available on the Crewcast Radio Facebook Page, and if you don’t use Facebook, please feel free to leave a comment below!

The Twisted SciFi Interview Part 2 of 2

In the second half of an interview with Twisted SciFi, I suggest another SciFi author, some biographies, and answer questions about the research I do, my motivation for starting Crewcast Radio, the TV series, as well as future books. Brought to you by the Crewcast Radio Network, this is my most favourite interview! (Final version)

I’d like to thank Twisted SciFi for giving me the chance to over-answer not just a few, but every single interview question!  You can find Twisted SciFi on Twitter: @Twistedscifi and check out their website:www.twistedscifi.com

The Twisted SciFi Interview Part 1 of 2

In this half of an interview with Twisted SciFi, I reply to questions about the categorization and form of Spinward Fringe, how I became a science fiction fan, the roots of my story telling habit, early rejection letters, my reading list, influences and more. Brought to you by the Crewcast Radio Network, this is my most favourite interview!

I’d like to thank Twisted SciFi for giving me the chance to prattle on, and working with me on doing this in audio instead of text.

You can find Twisted SciFi on Twitter: @Twistedscifi and check out their website: www.twistedscifi.com

[UPDATE: This interview underwent a big audio upgrade, with a new intro, a little theme and a proper exit. The content in the middle is the same, with a little audio polish.]

The Spinward Fringe Podcast 7: The One Where George Lucas Retires

George Lucas

George Lucas takes a well earned retirement from big biz to get busy in his garage, we wish him luck.

This podcast starts with a conversation already in progress about beloved entertainers who refuse to retire, retired then changed their mind, and finally comes to the man we initially decided to talk about, George Lucas, who is certain about his retirement. I make a huge mistake several times by referring to Frank Miller as Frank Frezetta – OOPS – then we move on to Ray’s review of the $99.99 Kobo touch. Spoiler alert: he takes no prisoners.

The rest of the episode provides a rare walk through of the Spinward Fringe novel that was never written between Broadcast 0 and Broadcast 1 – and Ray had something to say about that book’s absence.

All in all, it’s a great beginning to our discussion of the Science Fiction world, and the beginning of Broadcast 1, which will continue next week.

We have the pleasure of presenting another tune from Walk Off The Earth this week, it’s called Money Tree. We just can’t seem to get away from this band, and it seems the world is falling under their spell as they continue their tour. Check them out at www.walkofftheearth.com.
