For the first Podcast of 2014, I'm all a-flutter to welcome the originator of one of my favourite characters from one of my favourite TV shows - Racetrack from Battlestar Galactica herself
Leah and I met at a SF convention last year and found ourselves chatting away like old friends in no time. Asking her to join us for a chat was both logical and obvious.
Actually finding the time to make the recording on the other hand was a task of epic proportions! I'm talking Hobbit-like people. (Films not the slenderest of slender books)
It's a weird thing about talented people. They seem to always be working...
We chat about all sorts of things. From Leah's origins as a dancer through her epic backpack years (!) to her realization that she wanted to act...in India...while visiting a mediation centre. Perhaps this should come with a Random Alert warning, let alone language and spoilers!
We then discuss Battlestar Galactica - her audition, input into her character and the Racetrack arc as a whole. Along the way, expect constant little tidbits about the cast and crew Leah was working alongside. As Leah notes, no one really understands these characters as well as the actors who portray them!
Interstellar - Chris Nolan's soon to be released film, Kyle XY, Sanctuary, Fargo, The Tomorrow People and Leah's dream projects are also explored along the way.
Finally, we take a look at Leah's Go Fund Me campaign for two adorable little girls who are living with very dangerous conditions. There are details on how you can get involved after the links.
We've very good. Practically not offensive at all.
Nevertheless, those of an especially sensitive nature might want to brace themselves.
We *RUIN* Battlestar Galactica. Particularly the parts that relate to Racetrack. Because OBVIOUSLY.
CulturallyFixatedis delighted to welcome back - by popular demand - the wacky, hysterical and musical
For a Spectacular Musical Extravaganza, otherwise known as the
Cult Fix Christmas Special!!!
Ladies and Gentlemen, there are no words.
We sing, we dance (thankfully not recorded in the podcast), laugh, cry and hurl.
It's everything you could ever want in a Reed Diamond Christmas Special.
We discuss The Mentalist, Bones, Franklin and Bash as well as his new series Wayward Pines.
That's the coherent part.
Reed also introduces you to two of his favourite Christmas scamps, sings and plots and plans his wishes for the future. We also put to rest the Turkey/Goose debate, as well as touching upon absurd crowd pleaser Duck sized Horses.
