I was invited to appear on the Sci-fi Review podcast to discuss my favorite movie of all time, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. We discuss the amazing overacting abilities of the Shatner and Mr. Roarke from Fantasy Island, the needs of the many vs the needs of the few (or the one), my questionable ability to recall particular scenes of this classic movie line by line, the usefulness of girdles and toupees, and why Citizen Kane pales in comparison.

Skunk Dicks, you might respond. Yeah, suck it, we’re busy.Read More
Here we go, the first episode of “The Second Law,” wherein our intrepid hosts get a “feel” for each other, introducing themselves and discussing, among other things, their deconversion experiences.
If you like it, give your thanks to hosts Emma and Joe (Moggie and Gliblord from the forums). If you don’t like it (hey ptah, ‘sup), blame Leighton.Read More
