We're back from Dragon Con!  And that means that it's time for Anomaly Supplemental to bring you some panel recordings!  Moderated by Sue and with KC as a panelist, this is Truly Outrageous! Female Heroes of Classic Sci-Fi.

The annual "Truly Outrageous" panel on the American Sci-Fi Classics Track at Dragon Con focuses on the women of classic sci-fi who influenced the panelists as children and young adults. It's always a convention highlight, the pride of the Classics Track Directors, and a good time, whether we all agree or not. 

Thanks for listening!

In this episode of Anomaly Supplemental, KC (Dragon Con Newbie) and Sue (Dragon Con Eternal Member) and joined by Gary Mitchel, the Co-Director of Dragon Con's American Sci-Fi Classics Track.  We discuss what makes Dragon Con different from many of the other big cons, talk about our panels, guests and events we're looking forward to, the community service aspect of the convention, and answer some of KC's n00b questions.  It may sound like we're doing a really long commercial for Dragon Con, but we just love it so much, and encourage everyone who is able to check it out at least once.

Recorded on Wednesday, August 24th.  Because we're currently at Dragon Con!

SPOILER ALERT! Star Trek Beyond is WORTH YOUR TIME! The End. I’m kidding… Of course there’s more, a whole lot more! Jen and Angela discussed the Star Trek Beyond plot, the treatment of its female characters—by far the most feminist story in the franchise—the acting, writing, new characters…the WHOLE shebang. What did you think of the movie? In two weeks, we’ll cover Stranger Things and Suicide Squad!

With no new Who on on the immediate horizon until Christmastime, KC and I have turned our attention to the Big Finish audio dramas and the return of David Tennant and Catherine Tate (as Ten and Donna, of course) to The Tenth Doctor Adventures, Vol 1

This set encompasses three stores: Technophobia, Time Reaver, and Death and the Queen.  We share our thoughts on the stories, try to place them chronologically (whatever that means) in Series 4, and gush about The DoctorDonna.  As usual, with Your Moment of Who, this is a reaction-cast, and not an in-depth analysis of these stories.

02:27 - Technophobia
07:25 - Time Reaver
13:11 - Death and the Queen
17:44 - Overall impressions & behind the scenes tidbits
21:45 - Opinions on the state of Who on TV
23:04 - Should we cover more audio productions?
28:40 - Coming up on Anomaly Supplemental
