 UK TV has some shows that never really grow old they just keep on giving. One of these is the iconic Sci Fi comedy Red Dwarf! In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk to another of the cast. The smartest and dumbest computer on board the ship, (even the scutters are more intelligent than Holly on occasion) is who they are interviewing, the funny and sardonic Norman Lovett. But, as with any episode of Red Dwarf the unexpected can happen and that happened when they started interviewing Norman! In pops the redoubtable Craig Charles, who audio-bombed Norman, what happens next is a laugh fest where Eugenia and Gerri just sit back and let it happen! Eugenia and Gerri also talk all about the latest series’, yes, including Season 9 .
Don’t forget to catch up with their previous interviews with cast members including Cat (Danny John-Jules), Lister (Craig Charles), Kryten (Robert Llewellyn) and Captain Hollister (Mac McDonald).

Episode 135 – The Discovery of Star Trek – Rekha Sharma

Click to play – Right click to download

issuu podcast 135

This podcast recorded part way through the series has Gerri and Eugenia speculating who the Captain of Discovery was to be! This incarnation of Star Trek is a darker, grittier version. No mention of “The Prime Directive” and of course all that technology that we never saw on the USS Enterprise. Have those that believe Star Trek canon should be followed to the letter accepted this new version of the franchise? As we have moved on with our own technology, so has the film industry and it would be “silly” to use the production values or props of the 1960’s in the telling of these stories. Discovery does however (BTW it seems that the show title has been shortened to Star Trek: DSC to fit in with the shortened form of the other shows), give nod to a least the sounds of the 60s with the noticeable hisses of the doors and the tinkle of the transporters and of course the flip communicators, paying homage to The Original Series. Star Trek again looks to the world that we live in with xenophobia being central to current story lines and a retelling of the Mirror Universe, first seen again in TOS. So whilst being new it acknowledges what went before. So far Gerri and Eugenia like the show and look forward to the development of a new history that adds to the mythology of one of their favourite franchises. Don’t forget to check back through their catalogue to re-listen to their episodes covering all of the Star Trek incarnations and even some fan made shows. In this episode Gerri and Eugenia pull an interview from the archive with Rekha Sharma who played Security Chief, Commander Landry. Recorded before the making of the new series, Rekha has been a fan of the show from a child having watched it with her father. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Rob and Sandra from Culture Shock Events who gave them the opportunity to interview Rekha. Check out www.cultureshockevents.com for their upcoming shows.

issuu podcast 134In this episode Eugenia and Gerri have been able to “transform” a one interview episode into three!!! How did they do this? Whilst looking into their vault of interviews for a topic they found that they had three interviews about the transformation of an 80s cartoon series into a live action movie franchise! So, what is this episode about, well it’s about Transformers of course. The cartoon series that captured the imagination of many children and when they also got the toys that “transformed” from cars and trucks into ‘super beings’, who could blame them? They also discuss how CGI can enhance or take away from the storytelling of a movie. The interviews they have in this episode transport us from animation to live action and include, Garry Chalk, the voice of the 80s Optimus Prime ( Colonel Chekov in Stargate SG-1). Tony Award winner, Julie White , who played Julie Witwicky from the live action movies. Last, but not the least of them, Mark Ryan who voices the much loved Bumblebee. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Culture Shock Events www.cultureshockevents.com for the interview with Garry. Bill and Adele from Armageddon New Zealand www.armageddon.com for the interview with Mark and Daniel from Supanova www.supanova.com.au and Lionel from www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the interview with Julie.

In the early years of Doctor Who companions dying was not common as in recent years. So when Adric, from planet E-space (a parallel universe) Alzarious was killed stopping a freighter from crashing into Earth, it was a shock (Earthshock in fact)!!.

Episode 130 – Get Smart with Barbara Feldon & Bernie Kopell

issuu podcast 130Click to play – Right click to download

 In the 1960s, TV shows mixed it up and Get Smart was one of them! Was it a Spy show, a Sci Fi show, or a comedy? Get Smart was all of them with a little bit of social change chucked in as well! As you can see by the image, Eugenia and Gerri are talking Get Smart, that Sci Spy Fi Comedy show, where technology ruled. Who didn’t want a “shoe phone” or a “Cone of Silence” and the smartest person in the room was Agent 99, a women who always saved the day and the boys! All the characters of this show are iconic, from Agent 86, Maxwell Smart, to the previously mentioned 99, the girl with no name and of course one of the agents of KAOS “Siegfried” the one with many names! Of course this show is all about the standard story of “good vs evil” or ‘control vs chaos”. Funny, pertinent, up-to-date with all the gizmos and social happenings of its time Get Smart, still is all of those things today. So who are Eugenia and Gerri talking to? Two of the icons of the show, Barbara Feldon and Bernie Kopell Agent 99 and Siegfried respectively. They would like to thank Culture Shock Events – Rob and Sandra find them at www.cultureshockevents.com for Bernie and for Barabra Feldon Daniel from www.supanova.com.au and Lionel from www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the chance to interview these icons!

The truth is out there!  Well, where have you heard that before?  Eugenia and Gerri get to talk about the truth of The X-Files and the impact this show had on the psyche of Sci Fi fans.  Well written, with two of the most memorable characters to appear in a TV show and to make it even more memorable was that the skeptic and rational one was a women!!!   Who does not know the theme to this show and thinks of the many strange and weird ideas it discussed!  So who are they talking with in this episode?  One of the shows stand out characters, Dean Haglund who played Richard “Ringo” Langley from the group called “The Lone Gunmen” (they even got their own show!).   Dean also has a “podcast”of his  own and you can catch him at  www.chillpakhollywood.com

The X-Files was  a show that paved the way for many of the genre that are on TV now such as Supernatural, Warehouse 13, Torchwood and even Buffy!  This show was scientific, fantastical and just right out there at times!  It is one of those shows that we still look forward too when we hear that a new movie or series many be on the way!   Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Scott Liston of First Contact Conventions for the opportunity to interview Dean.  Find  out about shows coming to you  at www.firstcontactconventions.com.au

As you know Gerri and Eugenia love Star Trek in any of its forms! In this episode they get to interview 8 characters from them (well if you count the many versions of one of this actors parts)! So if you are into Star Trek you already know that they are interviewing Jeffrey Combs who is one of most versatile actors in Sci Fi TV today and you will have seen him in many roles that are “weird”, “iconic” or just plain “strange”. Can anyone of us forget his role of FBI Agent Milton Dammers from The Frighteners or Herbert West from the cult movie Re-animator. Combs is one of the three actors that have played two different roles in an episode of a Star Trek. In the DS9 episode “The Dogs of War”, he played both Brunt and Weyoun and shows his range. He is the only Star Trek actor to be credited for playing two roles in the titles. Gerri and Eugenia discuss Jeffrey and his many roles sans Sci Fi and they would like to thank OZ Comic Con and Blue Planet PR for the opportunity to interview him.

issuu podcast 126

Remember Angel the TV show!  Whilst it has not been on our television for many years it was one show that is hard to forget!  Not only did it entertain us, but it taught us as well!  The main theme of the show was about “good v evil”, but there was also an underlying theme of “yes you can overcome your base” and you can aim to change the way that you interact with the world!  So what do Eugenia and Gerri have for you in this episode?  They talk about Angel the show with not one, but two vampires who got their “humanity” back!  Angel and Spike who could want more, well we could, do more episodes if that is possible “Josh”!  This show still stands up today and could be said that it and Buffy changed the way that we look at female heroes, not only are they brave but like Fred they can be smart too!  So in this episode Eugenia and Gerri get to talk to J. August Richards and Mercedes McNab.  The guy from the hood that is good (Gunn), and the vampire who tried to be better (Harmony).   This show had a darker, more grown-up theme than Buffy, however it did have a lighter side!  Who can forget Muppet Angel, well Eugenia and Gerri can’t!   Just do a Google search, it still makes them laugh!

They would like to thank Daniel of www.supanova.com.au and Lionel of  www.lionelmifordpublicity.com  for their interview with Mercedes and Oz Comic Con  www.ozcomiccon.com   and Sophie Blue of www.blueplanetpr.com.au  for their interview with J. August. 


Episode 125 – 2001 A Space Odyssey-Gary Lockwood-Kier Dullea

issuu podcast 125Click to play – Right click to download

Some movies are just entertainment and some movies become “icons”! In this episode Gerri and Eugenia are talking about one such movie and that is 2001: A Space Odyssey. In fact this movie is all about “icons”, based on a short story by one of the icons of 20th century SF author Arthur C. Clarke and directed by Stanley Kubrick who of course is another icon! Now considered to be one of the greatest movies ever made, every “geek” on earth has watched this movie and everyone knows “Hal”! For a Sci Fi movie this was not of the ilk that people expected to see in that era, no creepy aliens and no bad sets! For its time this movie was scientifically accurate, had pioneering special effects, used classical music and little dialogue to tell a story about humanities relationship with the universe. That Hal was damn scary though! In this episode Gerri and Eugenia get to talk to the two other icons of the movie ,Gary Lockwood and Kier Dullea, Dave and Frank respectively! They would like to thank Scott Liston of www.firstcontactconventions.com.au for arranging for the interviews and Daniel of www.supanova.com.au and Lionel of www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for hosting of the Gary and Kier on Scott’s behalf. It is not often that you get to interview “icons”, but Gerri and Eugenia are privileged to host what they think is a special episode!

Now many years ago when Gerri and Eugenia started their podcast and put their names out with the publicists and media for the conventions that were happening around Australia. One of the first interviews they had the opportunity to carry out was with Richard Hatch who was a generous and gracious interviewee to a couple of new interviewers. Battlestar Galactica was one the television shows that cemented their fascination with Science Fiction and it is with great regret that they hear of Richard’s passing. With respect and In Memorial to Richard and his fans they would like to re-air their podcast from 2010.

 For decades the stories of Terry Nation dominated the UK’s BBC viewing audience, he was the creator of one of the world’s greatest and iconic villains the “Daleks” of Doctor Who fame He was also the script writer for shows such as UK stalwarts, The Champions, The Avengers, The Saint and even MacGyver. He was instrumental in the creation of two TV shows those being “The Survivors” and “Blakes 7”. This program, Blakes 7 running for four seasons from 1978 to ’81 was different to everything else on TV and was also just damn well entertaining. The story of escaped rebels who after witnessing the cover-up of a massacre formed a resistance, stole an alien ship called “The Liberator” and their adventure begins. We watch as they are chased across the galaxy by the corrupt Terran Federation who tries to subdue this team of freedom fighters. It was a show praised for its dystopian themes, but it also had a sense of fun. In this episode Gerri and Eugenia have the pleasure of interviewing Sally Knyvette who played Jenna Stannis the ship’s pilot and smuggler from Blakes 7. Sally talks to them about the phenomenon that is Blakes 7, a show that still resonates 40 years on. Sally works now not only as an actor but as a theatre director and producer, bringing to the stage works of famous writers and promoting new talented writers. Gerri and Eugenia talk to Sally about her pathway to acting and her work as a director and the trials and tribulations of theatre life.

There are two types of Geeks in the world (although your hosts like both) and generally they are either for Star Trek or Star Wars. However, no matter which camp you call your own everyone likes a great story, great characters and of course great movies to watch over and over again! So, in this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk about Star Wars! George Lucas took the perennial story of the “hero” made it his own, and here we are still going to the movies to find out more about this Universe. Seven (or four if you are a Star Wars purest) movies later, we still can’t wait for the next one to be released. This universe has the staying power of Doctor Who and Star Trek and it is a staple in the geek world! Who does not know the characters of Luke Skywalker, Darth (I am your father) Vader and the “backward not does he talk”, Yoda? George L is a very clever man, building his Universe full of amazing non-human characters that we all want to take home via just about any store on Earth! Star Wars has inspired many, including fans who carry out charity in its name, ala The 501st Legion. He brought animation and puppetry to the fore in story telling and allowed us the opportunity to buy our own model of the Millennium Falcon! So, who are Eugenia and talking to in this episode? Two actors who played small, but iconic roles in the franchise and beyond! They are Tim Rose (remember the fishy Admiral) who starred as General Akbar and who was also a puppeteer for the movies and Daniel Logan who plays the young Boba Fett in the movies and animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Daniel of www.supanova.com.au and Lionel Midford of www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com the interview with Daniel and Oz Comic Con www.ozcomiccon.com plus Sophie Blue of www.blueplanetpr.com.au for Tim Rose.

Bright colours, fantastical costumes, and insane plots were a hallmark of shows from the sixties and Gerri and Eugenia talk about them in this episode!  The sixties, an era of change, new freedoms, the psychedelic colour schemes and of course the music all combined to create new ways of doing things and TV was no different!  With themes still relevant to our time of “women’s lib” and “diverse families”, Gerri and Eugenia talk about who could be called the first real woman super hero on television and a family that could only be called diverse and in all of the ways that you can consider!  These shows of course include Batman and The Munsters, two of the iconic shows of the sixties they were fun, frivolous and fantastic.  So who do they talk to about these wonderful none other than the first (in their eyes) woman super hero of TV the fabulous and sorely missed Yvonne Craig in an interview that they were lucky enough to do when she visited Australia before her death.  They also talk with the one and only Eddie Munster otherwise known as Butch Patrick.  They would like to thank Daniel and Lionel from Supanova Pop Culture expo, catch them at http://www.supanova.com. au   and http://www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com   for the rare privilege of meeting these sixties icons.

This of course could be none other than the indomitable Jo Grant! Companion to the 3rd Doctor and who at the time was a member of the show as it made innovations in the use of “special effects” yes even with the use of lots of quarries, cardboard and of course monsters who even then looked, well the only word is funny! The interview in this episode is with the indomitable (in real life as well), Katy Manning, who at times calls Australia home! As Katy was in playing Jo, a bit of a talker she does not fail us now and this interview for Eugenia and Gerri is one big long one (but that means more for you) and in the listening you never know who may just pop into the interview, giving you not one but two classic series actors!

For the last 28 years intermittently this show has been on the screens of Sci Fi fans all over the world.

While Enterprise did not make it to the seven seasons showing of all the other modern incarnations of the franchise it is still worth a watch and gives us more information to add to the canon of the Star Trek universe.

Whilst there were many great episodes, season 4 stood out and introduced us to the backstories of many of the species and our knowledge of them from the original series. These included how the Klingons played around with Noonan Soong’s genetic work and got their forehead ridges, introduced us to the Borg and of course the beginning of the Vulcan reformation and their path to the use of logic and how Humans overcame bigotry and xenophobia and became the humanity we see in the later series. Gerri and Eugenia also talk about the fan fiction of Star Trek and how it has inspired many fans to take the franchise in their own hands and create Star Trek worlds of their own. So, have a listen to a “plethora” of our guests from Star Trek: Enterprise and check out Anthony’s graphic novel at http://www.anthonymontgomery.com

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 .

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.
