DOCTOR WHO, Charles & Jesse...NEXT STOP EVERYWHERE!
To quote the Second Doctor, Ohhh, dear...We are in trouble, aren't we?
I'm very proud to announce that my longtime friend Jesse Jackson and I have just launched our brand-new Doctor Who podcast, Next Stop Everywhere, as part of the Southgate Media Group. Our first pre-show recording, "Episode 000 -- An Unearthly Podcast," was posted late last night and you can listen to it HERE.
In addition, we've set up a Next Stop Everywhere show page on Facebook, which you can check out HERE. And we're also on Twitter using the account @NextStopSMG. Be sure to share these with all of your friends, companions, worst enemies, whomever, and help build our little podcast into something special.
As a few of you might know, Jesse and I have known one another for over two decades now, having originally met as members of the amateur press association TitanTalk, a fan fiction group devoted to DC Comics' various Teen Titans characters. Jesse, one my closest friends, was kind enough to act as a surrogate father-in-law to give my wife Lori away at our wedding, and now we get to share our love of Doctor Who on a weekly basis with the upcoming Series Eight starring Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor.
This first podcast covers our backgrounds as Doctor Who fans -- Jesse as a NuWhovian who became a fan with the David Tennant era, and me as the old school veteran that started watching with the end of Tom Baker's run airing on PBS. Our next episode will start with our takes on "Deep Breath," the first episode of Series Eight, and we'll share our thoughts on each new episode after they air, as well as older episodes with similar themes that you might want to check out.
Oh, and our deepest thanks to Rob Southgate at Southgate Media Group for considering us for the gig and for all his help in getting us up and running (dematerializing?). Be sure to check out Southgate's website at the link above for more great podcasts, okay?
I hope you'll come along with us on this ride, but if you do, I should warn you. You're gonna hear all sorts of things -- ghosts from the past, aliens from the future, the day the Earth died in a ball of flame. It won't be quiet, it won't be safe, and it won't be calm. But I tell you what it will be -- the trip of a lifetime...
