Anomaly Podcast
Fun but deep episodes on Sci-fi / Fantasy and geek culture. Covering Star Trek, Star Wars, and other sci-fi fantasy TV, book, and movies. In addition to the episodes available here, you'll find many, many more at anomalypodcast.com.

This is the last Anomaly episode of 2014; a lost recording made at the Anomaly booth with Jen, Angela, Rico and Noah.

Anomaly's next episode, the first of 2015, will be on role playing raid groups and how they relate to our real-life dynamics. Find out what roles Jen and Angela play in their circle of friends and hear funny stories that back up their positions. Coming January 1, 2015.

KC and Sue are back to discuss the latest episodes of Doctor Who:  Listen, Time Heist, and The Caretaker.  As always, we would like to remind you that we have each seen these episodes only once, and these are our first reactions.  And as usual, we go down several rabbit holes and stir up some Moffat crit.

Doctor Who has returned! We're already a quarter of the way through Series 8, and KC and Sue talked for nearly two hours about the first three episodes featuring the new Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi. Don't worry, though - it has been edited down to a much more manageable 52 minutes (or so).  Please remember that we both only saw each episode once and that these episodes are "first reactions" to the episode.  Don't expect too much analysis.  There will be some, however, because we just can't stop ourselves.

****THIS EPISODE CONTAINS SPOILERS****

To help you avoid said spoilers and still listen, if you want, here are some time codes:
01:15 - Thoughts on the new title sequence
03:30 - Capaldi first impressions
06:30 - Deep Breath (KC and I disagree about something!)
19:10 - Into the Dalek
28:35 - Robot of Sherwood
33:00 - General thoughts so far (including some general Moffat crit around the 38 minute mark and also some things we forgot earlier.)
40:45 - An email from listener Marcus and our response
And stay tuned to the very end for over 2 minutes of ridiculous outtakes.

Hi, I'm Jen and this is Anomaly's first podcast episode about Outlander. I recently sat down with my sister and my mom to discuss the time traveling series written by Diana Gabaldon. We also talked about the first two episodes of the new television show that Gabaldon and Ronald D. Moore created, based on her novels. Alas, I don't have the Starz Channel, but my mom graciously offered to record them for me—it's good to have connections. A couple of weeks ago, I had a free weekend, so I  traveled seventy-five miles to watch them with her and my younger sister. It was our "girls' night". We shared a couple of  bottles of wine and some laughs as we talked late into the evening about why we enjoyed the series. It's a very good excuse to get together more often and I think we're going to make it a habit.

Welcome to our final installment of this year's Classic Who series! KC and I discuss the 1996 TV Movie simply titled "Doctor Who" and starring Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor.

We talk about why American content creators should not be trusted with a 30+ year old BBC property, the overuse of racial stereotypes and gang/gun violence, the Seventh Doctor's traumatic end, and the somewhat odd characteristics of the Eighth Doctor (like kissing random women, which stuck around, and telling people bits from their future, which didn't). We also discuss the Doctor's apparently questionable genetic makeup, and again ask the age-old question: Why does the Master have superpowers?

This month, while KC is busy a moving couple hundred miles, I was joined by Anomaly Correspondent and Staff Writer Sarah to talk about Jurassic Park.  From the very beginning, we had some particularly difficult issues with Skype, and even after correcting the audio as much as possible, Sarah still sounds a bit like she's in a fishbowl.  Apologies.

Along with favorite quotes/characters/scenes and John Williams's majestic score, we share stories of our first experiences with this movie, production trivia, comments from the Facebook group, and talk a little about the somewhat weighty themes of exploiting scientific advancement for monetary profit and attempted to control nature.

"I am Groot!"  In this edition of Anomaly, Angela and I review Guardians of The Galaxy. In short, the casting was great! The dialogue was clever, the comedy was non-stop awesome! And, as Gen Xers who both lived by the "awesome mix tape", as teenagers and young women, we both LOVED the soundtrack. It's definitely one to buy. We highly recommend you see this movie... now!

In this episode Jen and Angela discuss a Star Wars documentary, by Alexandre O. Philippe, called: THE PEOPLE vs. GEORGE LUCAS. The film, now available on Netflix, aims to deconstruct the cultural legacy of George Lucas--a man whose life, feelings and creative impulses remain largely shrouded in mystery." (from PeopleVsGeorge Lucas.com/about)

You know the drill by now.  The end of July means it's time that KC and I talk about the Seventh Doctor, by way of "The Greatest Show in the Galaxy."  After some preliminary research, we put this serial out there as our frontrunner for viewing, and received no other suggestions.  But our uncontested winner turned out to be one of our favorite serials (featuring one of our favorite Doctors) in this project.

As usual, the conversation takes some diversions, into things like "Zoobilee Zoo" and cosplay.  

Additionally, we discuss what we have seen and heard so far regarding the upcoming Series 8, featuring Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor.  Neither of us has read the leaked scripts, but we do speculate, so if you want to remain completely unspoiled regarding the next series, that discussion begins around 16:30.  We don't talk about anything else, so you can just skip the rest.

Jen talks about her trip to the movies with her son, Aaron. She describes his crazy antics during the film then gives her impressions of the movie before her little boy provides his own review. This is a movie review and a slice of life hybrid; the first edition of a new podcast series and one of many adventures to be shared by this geek mom and her rambunctious preschooler.

The end of another month means the KC and Sue chat about another Doctor! We're on another adventure with Peri, but this time, she's accompanying the Sixth Doctor, as portrayed by Colin Baker, in The Mark of the Rani (show notes).

In this episode, KC makes a potentially controversial statement about The Master, we collectively decide that we need the Rani to return to New Who, and Sue ends up pitching an episode idea for Series 8.  (You can have it, Moffat!  All yours!)

In this month's episode of Anomaly Supplemental, Sue and KC review and rave over "The Night Circus," the 2011 debut novel of Erin Morgenstern. Show Notes Here »

KC and Sue share their love of the book and spend the first portion of the episode suggesting why listeners might enjoy the book. Topics include analyzing (and mild myth-busting) the book's publicized synopsis, books similar to "The Night Circus," and the difficulty of placing it in a certain genre. Note: There will be spoilers for the book in the episode, but they will be preceded by the "Spoiler Alert" tag.

In this special  Father's Day episode, Jen and Angela talk about their dads and discuss a Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode entitled: The Visitor. The story wonderfully illustrates the bond between father and child and the sacrifices they often make for one another. Show Notes Here »

The majority of this chat is spoiler free, but at the moment the spoilers begin a warning is played. If you haven't seen this particular Star Trek episode, we hope that you'll pause our discussion, watch The Visitor and then return to this installment of Anomaly to finish it.

 This month's Anomaly Supplemental is an admission of guilt from KC and Sue. Well, "guilty pleasures," that is.

From reality TV shows to paranormal romances, the Supplemental hosts cover almost every geeky and non-geeky guilty pleasure that they hold. The phrase itself has a lot of connotations, but we're focusing on the chocolate cake analogy--chocolate cake may be delicious and you want more every time you have some, but how many times have you had a slice for breakfast? And who have you told that you ate chocolate cake for that morning's breakfast? Best thing ever, yes. A little bit of guilt? You could say that...

Next month's topic: "The Night Circus," a novel by Erin Morgenstern (published 2011)

May the Fourth be with you! In this special Star Wars Day episode, Jen and Angela discuss the women of the Star Wars universe. Click for show notes. To the hosts, Star Wars also encompasses what was formerly known as: “The Expanded Universe” or “The EU” as fans call it. The EU included all officially licensed content, outside the films and television shows; such as novels, comics and games.

Minor spoilers included regarding characters. Please see the episode show notes to find out how far to fast forward to skip the spoilers, as well as links to content mentioned in this episode and a slide show of female characters. There are a number of women in the EU and in the background of the films, so they may not have included all of your favorites. The hosts discussed as many as they could and added as many characters as they could find to their slide show in the show notes; including fan art and cosplay photos. They also discussed the recent controversy about the EU and the announcemnt about the cast. Jen and Angela weigh in on the debate and try to offer hope to concerned fans while still expressing their own disappointments over the years and their nervousness with regards to J.J. Abram's involvment. 

Special thanks to Jen's Star Wars Stacks co-hosts, Chris and Joe and to the Anomaly Group for their participation.

It's the end of April, and time to talk about the Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker. With so many serials to choose from during Four's tenure, KC and I narrowed it down a bit by companion (Sarah Jane Smith was required) before opening the poll up in the Anomaly Facebook group. Genesis of the Dalekswon by a landslide, and now we know why.

Show Notes »

As usual, we talk about costumes, effects, make up, and the philosophical questions posed by the serial. All while being distracted by our animals and making silly jokes. Enjoy!

In this mini skirt episode of Anomaly, Jen and Angela talk about Geek Couture. What is couture? What is Geek Couture? The two discuss their Facebook Group's recent debate on the subject. Is it contributing to the dilution of geekdom or should we, as geeks, encourage creativity and geek diversity in our community? We would like to hear your thoughts. What do you think of San Diego Comic Con's inclusion of the Geek Couture Fashion Show? Does it make it easier to digest, knowing that Ashley Eckstein's "Her Universe" is presenting?

Included is Sue's disclaimer about why we chose this episode's title along with the difference between Muppets and puppets. The co-hosts also discuss the lack of puppetry and practical effects in modern films, what separates puppeteers from men in suits, the effect Jim Henson had on the entertainment industry, and more.

It's [barely still] March, and that means it's the Third Doctor's month!  After a poll on the Anomaly Facebook group, we found ourselves watching the Series 9 serial "The Sea Devils."  Thanks, guys.   We have a great time talking about the Third Doctor, Jo Grant's fashion sense, and the Master's beard.  Oh, and those amazing cousins of the Silurians, the ever-amusing Sea Devils.

Show Notes »

Let's face it - this is not a "good" episode, by any means, but it is a <em>great</em> one.  And this may be the best time we've had recording a Moment of Who episode ever.  I hope it's as much fun for you to listen to as it was for us to record.

Get your Show Notes here. It's the second episode in our Classic Who series, which means we're talking about Patrick Troughton, the Second Doctor!  After taking recommendations and then polling the Anomaly Facebook Group, we settled on the fifth series serial "The Tomb of the Cybermen," which also happens to be the earliest complete serial from the Second Doctor's tenure.

We discuss our impressions of the Second Doctor, before and after watching this story; his companions; the, um, interesting special effects; intimidation levels of old versus new cybermen; and much, much more.

In this edition of Anomaly, Jen and Angela discuss "Rascals" from Star Trek: The NExt Generation's sixth season. It's an episode that features a preteen Picard, Guinan, Keiko and Ro; it's not the "best of Trek", but it is certainly one of the more entertaining of this particular series. Angela and Jen also announce their plans for a live anniversary show--Anomaly is now seven years old and to celebrate they are hosting a live broadcast on Mixlr on March 1st at 2pm CST. There will be a chat room on Mixlr, where you will be able to interact with the hosts as well as other listeners.

In this episode of Your Moment of Who, KC and I begin our Classic Who series. This month - because it's still January - we watched the very first Doctor Who serial ever - "An Unearthly Child" - with the very first Doctor ever, William Hartnell. The serial includes 4 episodes: "An Unearthly Child," "The Cave of Skulls," "The Forest of Fear," and "The Firemaker."

We talk a bit about the difference in style from 1963 to now, how the character of the Doctor has changed (or not changed), and come to the conclusion that Susan is a little bit insane. Among other things, of course.

Happy New Year, Anomaly listeners!

Right before the busy holiday season, Sue and I took some time to chat about modern animation classic, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. The ladies also quickly discuss what they've been up to, and sneak in an impromptu review of Disney's Frozen. So, spoiler warning for those who have not seen it yet. The Frozen mini-review runs about 5 to 6 minutes long for those who want to remain spoiler-free.
