podcast131

 In recent times there is one series of books that got a generation of children to read and many adults as well. We really don’t need to tell you as you can see from the image on this podcast! Well, you are right it is ‘Harry Potter’! In this episode Gerri and Eugenia, discuss the books, the films, and much more. This book is of course an epic ‘heroes’it’s a tale, about good over evil, boy meets girl, a crime story, and of course inspirational! So who would not love it? Gerri and Eugenia talk about the fans who are very invested in this tale. There is fan-fiction, blogs, podcasts and even clubs all over the world. A generation of children grew up with Harry Potter and we mean then grew up around the same age and as Harry did so did they. The characters are strong and Hermione Grainger of course, is who every girl wanted to be. She was smart, the best at magic and was also prepared to make sure Harry did what he had to. The series of books is very reminiscent of the British boarding school books from the 40-60s and of course many people who would have gone to them appeared in the series. If you see an actor in another show, film, television and they are from the UK or Ireland then the probably have been in the movies. So Gerri and Eugenia are talking to two actors who played iconic roles in the series. Firstly, Robbie Jarvis who played James Potter in some of the early backstory. Their other interview is with Stansilav Yaneviski, that enigmatic Quidditch player Viktor Krum, who once tried to win Hermione’s heart.

Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Oz Comic Con www.ozcomiccon.com and Sophie Blue of Blue Planet PR www.blueplanetpr.com.au for offering them the opportunity to interview Robbie.

Gerri and Eugenia would also like to thank Daniel from Supanova www.supanova.com.au and Lionel Midford www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for offering them the opportunity to interview Stanislav.

Arrrrrh me hearties, and shiver me timbers , does that give you some clue as to what Eugenia and Gerri are talking about in this episode! Pirates are baddies that we love to love! So what is a “pirate”, and what do they have to do about Sci Fi and Fantasy well that’s what Gerri and Eugenia talk about! Pirates in spaceships include Firefly, Farscape and even some could say Doctor Who, well the odd episode or two! Eugenia and Gerri could not resist putting a picture of Johnny Depp on this podcast they unfortunately don’t have an interview with him, but they do have one with the “sane” and really the “rudder” and first mate of The Black Pearl , Joshamee Gibbs otherwise known as Kevin McNally. This actor who you will recognise from many a Sci Fi show talks about his obsession with “Tony Hancock”, his work as an actor who has managed to build a career across two continents and more! But let’s get back to pirates ! Captain Jack and Gibbs and their many cosplayer copies have turned pirates back into a watchable treasure. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Daniel and Lionel from Supanova Pop Culture Expo, for these interviews, catch them at www.supanova.com.au and www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com  and because they couldn’t resist : “Why are pirates pirates?

Click to play – Right click to download

issuu podcast 110Some characters just turn out to be iconic and Superman is just one of those! He has been round since 1938 (looks good for his age hey!) and has provided the world with inspiration, someone to hero worship, and some damn fine entertainment since then! Superman has appeared in just about every form of entertainment from comic books, to radio, television and movies and there never seems to be a “him again” moment, we just can’t get enough. In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk about him in all his incarnations and they have an interview with someone very special. That very special interview is with Margot Kidder, who played Lois Lane in the 1980s movies with Christopher Reeve. These movies brought a whole new dimension to the Legend of Superman, with what were then ground-breaking special effects and again made everyone want to be from a different planet who came to Earth with superpowers! Margot Kidder is one of Eugenia and Gerri’s favourite interviews, with Margot not afraid to talk about her life “warts and all”. This is a very special episode and they would like to thank Scott Liston from First Contact Conventions, http://www.firstcontactconventions.com.au for allowing them to spend time with Margot! The Liston’s have a new experience for fans of “popular culture” coming to Melbourne Australia, with AMC Expo check them out at http://www.amcexpo.com.au . Eugenia and Gerri would also like to thank actor Sam Lloyd (you know him as Ted Buckland from Scrubs) for the use of the Superman March song sung by an a Capella group he sings with called The Blanks.

issuu podcast 109Every now and then the Antipodes does something fantastic and those little islands to the right of Australian (if Oz is really at the bottom of the world), called New Zealand does something fantastic! Whilst they could be talking about The Hobbit, Gerri and Eugenia are not! They are talking about The Almighty Johnsons, a fantastic and little known show about Norse Gods, New Zealand culture and with really cute main characters. NZ is a funny country, just look at the NZ Airlines safety instructions on YouTube and you will understand! Being the first in the world to welcome in the New Year, NZ’ers have a way of looking at things differently and they did just that with this show! They are a country of migrants and are very welcoming so why wouldn’t the gods like Oden, Thor and all those other wonderful, eccentric characters from Scandinavia want to go there too? This funny, dramatic and clever little show is one of their favourites and Gerri and Eugenia have an interview with one of the main cast the wonderful Dean O’Gorman who played Anders, otherwise known as Bragi, the god of poetry and in his present form (of course it would be this) a PR guru! He was also in that movie that was mentioned before, you know that one with the hobbit in it where he played Fili. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank, Daniel from Supanova Expo http://www.supanova.com.au and Lionel from http://www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the chance to interview Dean, watch out for their next exciting guests at a convention near you.

issuu podcast 105That show about the girl with a “stick” and “attitude”! In this episode guess which show Gerri and Eugenia are talking about? It’s one of their favourite shows, Buffy the Vampire Slayer! They have talked about this show before, but as you know they can wax lyrical about anything! So, with that in mind they discuss the strong character growth across the seven seasons of the show and still feel that the show stands up today, yes even with the clothes and the hairstyles! So whom are they talking with in this show, the lovely funny and very talented Amber Benson, actor, author, director and producer! So, they discuss the (at the time) intriguing relationship between Willow and Tara, the shock of her Tara’s death. Tara showed strength of character and took on the role of the stabiliser for the “Scooby Gang” with the voice of reason! Amber Benson is also a big “geek” into sci fi and fantasy , comic books and more!

Episode 104 – A Hat Full of Fantasy – Terry Pratchett

Click to play – Right click to download

issuu podcast 104This is our tribute to Terry Pratchett! Long Long ago in a place far away a mind found a world that was on a disc supported by four elephants standing on the back of a giant turtle called the Great A’Tuin. That mind was the fantastical one of Sir Terry Pratchett inventor of the Disc World and the many wonderful characters that reside there! Terry is a social commentator and this is reflected in his many books. Terry is such a master of telling a tale that it is only when you reflect back on the story (that you could not put down) that you know that what the story is really about! However, every one of them is full of fun and whimsy. With that in mind Gerri and Eugenia invited one of their friends Jo, who is as fanatical about Terry as Gerri is! So they discuss the world of Terry Pratchett, discuss the characters who they love and who is their favourite. Who is your favourite Discworld favourite or is it just like Gerri’s which changes every time she reads a new book? Terry and his daughter have also set up a Production Company and plan to make television series about the Discworld, keep checking the net to see when or if they may be transmitted!


Episode 102 – The Sword Arrow and Armour – Tom Hopper, Mark Ryan, Alfie Allen

Click to play – Right click to download

issuu podcast 102In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk about the hero! Heroes such as Robin Hood and King Arthur ignite our imagination allowing us to take part in stories where “might” is fought and good wins! Stories such as these have inspired us for thousands of years and television and film have since their invention given us many interpretations of these stories! Eugenia and Gerri talk about the variations over the years and how film and program makers can at time sanitise history and the violence. They discuss how shows such as Game of Thrones are a truer representation of the way history is and not the versions that we see with Robin Hood and King Arthur! Even though the subject matter may be takes a serious bent they don’t talk about it for long because they have three wonderful interviews from such shows with Alfie Allen, Theon Greyjoy from Game of Thrones, Tom Hopper, Sir Percival From Merlin and Mark Ryan from Robin of Sherwood, armour, swords and arrows who could want more? They would like to thank Daniel and Lionel from http://www.supanova.com.au and http://www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for Tom Hopper and Alfie Allen’s interview and http://www.armageddonexpo.com/nz for Mark Ryan’s interview.

issuu podcast 101All of us remember that time on Saturday morning when we watched the cartoons! Our parents happy that we were occupied and able to get a sleep-in on that day they did not have to go to work! So, if you have those memories Gerri and Eugenia have the podcast for you! Cartoons have played a big part in the entertainment that we remember from our youth and of course many of us tried to do the voices of those characters we love! How many can do the Woody the woodpecker laugh or the Bugs Bunny’s “What’s up Doc” and more. Well in this podcast they talk about what has become the branch of acting that they are most enamoured with “voice acting”! Gerri and Eugenia always say that when they interview these actors it feels like they are interviewing a roomful, of the funny, entertaining and talented! In this episode they have again three of what maybe some of the most famous voices from your favourite cartoons, Sponge Bob, Jimmy Neutron and of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. These are of course Debi Derryberry, the voice of Jimmy, Rodger Bumpass, the voice of Squidward Tentacles and Rob Paulsen the voice of the original Raphael and now Donatello in the latest incarnation of the show! Cowabunga Dude. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Oz Comic Con http://www.ozcomiccon.com for their interviews with Debi Derryberry (who is also a singer and has a range of children’s albums which can be purchased through her website. http://www.debiderryberry.com ) and Rob Paulsen (who does a podcast called “Talkin Toons” http://www.robpaulsenlive.com check it out!) and Culture Shock Events http://www.cultureshockevents.com for the interview with Rodger Bumpass.

Click to play – Right click to download

issuu podcast 99Has Sci Fi finally made it into the mainstream? With all the shows from the Sci Fi and Fantasy genre we sure hope so! In this episode Gerri and Eugenia talk about the Arrow. This show is about a human superhero, no special super powers (except what lotsa money can buy), showing us what commitment and effort can achieve. With the newest incarnation being very dark and a flashback in each episode we have the past and the future of what makes and what happens when a superhero takes on the world. Arrow has many interesting characters with some of them even female, strong, purposeful and funny with one as the geek and the other The Black Canary. One thing that is nice to see in this show for Gerri and Eugenia is the Australians, with an Australian accent! In this episode Gerri and Eugenia have an interview with Manu Bennett, otherwise known as Slade, done just before Manu took on the role. Born in New Zealand, grown in Australia (it is just across the pond) they claim him anyway! Thanks to Culture shock events, http://www.cultureshockevents.com for allowing Gerri and Eugenia to interview Manu.

issuu podcast 93Many of us have a favourite cartoon, animated film or Japanese anime and in that, we have a favourite character! As we watch the screen these characters feel alive and we invest in them, we enjoy how they react and how they come across as real, but, they are only (well up until now) 2D frames of some very good drawings hand or computerised and put together with sound and music! So what really brings these characters to life? Well, in this episode Gerri and Eugenia discuss that, they talk about the words that are said and the actors who make them come alive with their use of voice. In this episode they talk to some of the greats in the voice actor world with interviews with Steve Blum, Kyle Hebert, and Scott McCord but in reality they are now just interviewing these three but hundreds of characters from the world of the cartoon! Scott is also a musician, visit his website http://www.scottmccordmusic.com to see what he is up to.

In their last podcast Eugenia and Gerri had a talk with a Hobbit from Middle-Earth and in this episode they talk with Dwarves and not just one or two or even three or four but 5 of them!

Episode 91 – The Hobbit Who Could – Sean Astin

Click to play – Right click to download

issuu podcast 91Every now and again there is what may be called an “epic” movie and in recent times there has been not only one but a whole series of epic movies! Made in Gerri and Eugenia’s neighbouring country of New Zealand, they are of course, The Lord of the Rings trilogy! In this episode they talk about the movies, who really was the “hero” and of course that magnificent country, New Zealand! (Did you know that Australia still has in its constitution that New Zealand can decide to join as part of its Commonwealth!) So, of course they are discussing the Lord of the Ring movies and they also get to talk with the amazing Sean Astin, who played Samwise Gamgee, who Gerri really thinks is the most important of the Hobbits and the most important character of the story. Sean is no stranger to our screens appearing in The Goonies, Jeremiah, 24 and voicing Raphael in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank the crew from OZ Comic Con http://www.ozcomiccon.com for allowing them to interview Sean.


Episode 90 – Why Isn’t Sci Fi Mainstream? – David Faustino

Click to play – Right click to download

issuu podcast 90In this podcast Eugenia and Gerri discuss how mainstream TV and movie awards do not seem to want to recognise the genres of Sci Fi and Fantasy, why? So; in this episode they look at movies of James Bond, Mission Impossible and Austin Powers and more and explain why they should be classed as Sci Fi rather than just Action or Comedy movies. There have interesting comments about the definition of Sci Fi and different opinions about the parameters of the genre. They have an interesting interview with David Faustino best known as Bud Bundy from Married with Children currently voicing the role of Mako in The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra. He talks about being a child star, his friendship with Corin Nemec (Stargate SG-1, Supernatural, Sand Sharks) who together developed their web series Star-ving, his music and how he supports new bands through his record label Old Scratch Records, as well as talking about his role in, The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra. This is an entertaining podcast and well worth a listen. They thank their friends Jason and Darren from Gifts for the Geek http://www.giftsforthegeek.com.au for the interview.


Episode 79 – Sif Warrior of Asgard – Jaimie Alexander

Click to play – Right click to download

issuu podcast 79One thing that Gerri and Eugenia go on about a little is why is Sci Fi not mainstream? Every big blockbuster movie in 2012 that has made millions has Sci Fi/Fantasy concepts in it! The Avengers, Skyfall (yes Bond is Sci Fi we don’t have the gadgets that he has yet!), The Hunger Games, The Hobbit, The Amazing Spider Man, even Brave (magic), Ted (talking teddy), Twilight movies, Madagascar 3 (talking animals) just keep looking down the list at Box Office Mojo to see! So why don’t these movies that make all the money get recognised, why don’t the actors win an Oscar?? The most popular stories are those that we have been reading for over 80 years, yes some of our super heroes are close to reaching a century and who said that senior cits are not interesting. The “best” movie winner at the Oscars in 2012 only made 10% of The Avengers take! However, Gerri and Eugenia discuss the point in this episode as well as that maybe they don’t win because there is more attention given to the special effects than there is to the story being told! Could we tell the stories better or are they just “Kapow, Wham, and Zap?” Do you agree with them or do you think that all the special effects are what bring in the crowd? Gerri and Eugenia get to speak with the only female warrior from Thor the irrepressible Jaimie Alexander who plays Sif. They would like to thank Daniel and Lionel from Supanova Expo http://www.supanova.com.au for allowing them to spend time with Jaimie.

issuu podcast 76Sometimes a movie just hits the right spot. However, this movie took a little while to catch on but when it did!! Eugenia and Gerri talk about The Rocky Horror Picture show which they believe to be the first and only Science Fiction musical! Who knew it? Full of aliens, frankensteinish monster, but a cute one hey and more! This movie released in 1975 and at the time a confrontational regarding some of the social issues which are still debated today. Rocky Horror is now a popular and permanent feature in popular culture and in fact is the longest-running release in film history with 20th Century Fox never pulling it from its original 1975 release. It continues to inspire and is generally shown at midnight in many theatres around the world with almost an obligatory ‘if you attend then you must wear a costume from the film”. In this episode Eugenia and Gerri were more than overwhelmed when they got to interview one of the iconic actors from this iconic movie. It is none other than the wonderful and amazing Patricia Quinn, otherwise known as Lady Stephens (a real one!) who plays Magenta in the movie. She also talks about her appearance on Doctor Who on the Sylvester McCoy story Dragonfire which was also the story Ace becomes the new companion of the Doctor. See if you can hear a little cultural bonding of Patricia and Gerri as they both break into their hometown accents. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Oz Comic Con http://www.ozcomiccon.com and Blue Planet PR http://www.blueplanetpr.com.au for the chance to spend some time with this amazing woman.

Click to play – Right click to download

issuu podcast 74Sometimes, yes we all do it, search the internet just to see what is interesting and Eugenia and Gerri are no different from anyone else! A little while ago they did just that and came across a wonderful audio drama called The Minister of Chance. What is it you may ask? In 2001 the BBC produced a webcast called Death Comes to Time, a Seventh Doctor Story. In this story another Timelord “The Minister of Chance”, originally played by Stephen Fry meets up with the Doctor and takes his place in helping to resolve a conflict and so it goes on! Check out Wikipedia for more information Death Comes to Time. Dan Freedman the director of Death Comes to Time writer and director of The Minister of Chance has produced what only can be called a “Sonic Movie” about the adventures of The Minister of Chance with many cinematic features including sound and more. Eugenia and Gerri could go on and on about this audio series but it is easier to download it yourself at Minister of Chance http://www.ministerofchance.com or on ITunes and by the way it is FREE! If you would like to hear more then maybe you could support the production by donating as well. In this episode Eugenia and Gerri have a special treat for you not one, not two, but three of the cast from the series Sylvester McCoy (the Seventh Doctor Who) who plays the Witch Prime, Paul McGann (the Eighth Doctor Who) who plays Durian and Jed Brophy (dwarf Noki from the Hobbit) who plays Pilot. Yes Two Doctors and Jed dwarf and elf in the Lord of the rings too!

issuu podcast 73In this episode Gerri and Eugenia discuss Warehouse 13 and the world of Pete, Myka, Claudia and Arnie! This series has a winning formula that allows it to take an object from any time, any place and any person in history and do a story about them. A cross between Indiana Jones, cop shows, a “who-dun it”, with the odd supernatural mix. It has wizards, secret societies, mythology, government secrets, inventions and the world of art to name a few! But is it fun? Heck yeah! The show never takes itself seriously and Pete the “everyman” gives all of us those pop culture references that shows he is just like us and loves all of it as well! Gerri and Eugenia think that that he is a geek! To their delight that is who they interview in this podcast the funny and whacky Eddie McClintock. Not only is he a great actor but he is also a graphic designer and he sells his art on is website http://www.eddiemcclintock.com Have a look. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Oz Comic Con http://www.ozcomiccon.com and Blue Planet PR http://www.blueplanetpr.com.au for the chance to spend some time with the wonderful funny “Pete” from Warehouse 13
