Mike, Mike, Phantom Troublemaker, the award winning author Bobby Nash, and Jennifer Hartshorn enter the room from which no one returns to review the 100th episode of Doctor Who since its revival. In addition to taking a tour of Sweetville, the ESW crew also discuss some of the recent negative comments regarding the series as it seems they are building up along with all other excitement regarding the 50th anniversary. Internet trolls will not be preserved to survive the apocalypse. So says Mr Sweet.
The Doctor and Clara take a trip of a lifetime without going anywhere! Mike, Mike, Phantom Troublemaker, the award-winning author Bobby Nash, Anglofile extraordinaire Jonathan Thomas, and listener Drew Meyer remark on all the sights and sounds revealed in that beautiful big blue box. Plus, Jonathan introduces us to the center of Tardisopia, a new website for people who love Doctor Who. Then someone hits the big friendly button and resets the entire show.
There’s only a little over 100 days left until Dragon*Con 2013 and plenty to talk about! Mike, Mike, Darren, and Mary Lou Who chat with the official Dragon*Con Director of Media Relations, Dan Carroll, who gives us the skinny on what’s new this year. We also talk with Meredith Plako (aka Ana Aesthetic) about the pros and con of cosplay. Plus, Judy Faber reveals what it’s like to be a “Dragon*Con widow,” photography tips from Nikki Rau-Baker, and The Phantom Troublemaker spends some time with Le Sexoflex. This one’s not for the kiddies!

I’ve got some catching up to do.
A clearly distraught Director Faber pointed out to me the other day that I have not been posting new episodes of the Needless Things Podcast here on the ESO Network page. At the time I couldn’t remember why, so I just told him that I’ve only actually done two episodes and it’s not like I have the manliness or intestinal fortitude to produce multiple podcasts in a single week like he does. I’m lucky if I can muster the will to crank out one every six weeks.
Which is why I am only now producing my third episode since the beginning of 2013.
On this episode, the ESO crew sing of ice and fire! Bobby thought this was another musical episode, so he steps away while Mike and Mike are joined by Jessa Phillips (GoodtoBeaGeek.com), Rita De La Torre (Transmissions from Atlantis), Tara (Ice and Fire Con), and listener Jon Kenoyer for a review of the novels by George R. R. Martin as well as the HBO series, Game of Thrones. We also review the penultimate episode of The Walking Dead’s third season. Plus, we strap the visionary filmmaker GB Hajim in The Geek Seat! All this and the usual Rants, Raves, Shout Outs and Khan Report!

The time has almost come and it seems the wait for The Doctor’s return has been longer than ever! Although the 50th anniversary of the franchise doesn’t officially begin until later this year, Steven Moffat and company have already promised that the second half of the season will be one for the ages! Join Mike, Mike, Phantom Troublemaker, along with guests Robert Bowen (assistant director of the Dragon*Con Brit Track) and ESO contributor Mark Bousquet, as they voice their anticipation for the things to come. Clara Oswin, Ice Warriors, and Cybermen! Oh my!
This week, ESO steps up to be a real American podcast as The Phantom Troublemaker leads an elite team of Mike, Mike, JD, and the award-winning author Bobby Nash, to discuss all aspects of the franchise from the debut of the 12″ action figures in 1964 to the new movie hitting theaters this month. And speaking of soldiers, we also talk with Gary Phillips, Sam Ingraffia, and Doug Birch about their new web series, Midnight Mover, and all three face a fate worse than COBRA – The Geek Seat! Plus a report from Joelanta and the usual Rants, Raves, Walking Dead review, and Shout Outs!

Next week, the Earth Station One crew enlists. That’s right, Mike, Mike, and Bobby report for duty as part of America’s highly trained special missions force, known as G.I. Joe. ESO takes down Cobra forces while looking back at the Joes’ history from comic books, the various cartoon series, the conventions, the toys, and the upcoming live action movie starring The Rock and Bruce Willis. Plus, the ESO Khan Report goes on the road to Joelanta, Atlanta’s premier G.I. Joe convention. And if that wasn’t enough, just wait until you see who we strap into The Geek Seat this week. Plus, we’ll have the usual rants, raves, shout outs, and ESO’s Khan Report! It’s going to be another fantastic episode next week at Earth Station One. Now you know.
And knowing is half the battle.
ESO wants to hear from you. What are your favorite G.I. Joe memories from the comics, TV show, movies, or the toys that started it all? Let us know at email@example.com, Facebook, Twitter, or Google+. We just might tread yours on the show.
I suppose every one of these podcasts is going to include a certain amount of drama and stress. If I could just record them and then shoot them out of my computer and directly into your brains I would be extremely happy.
As I stated last time, I have no schedule for these things. If there’s something I feel like I can record a show about,. I’m going to try and do it. And I definitely felt like Toy Fair was something I could record a show about. I’ve been following Toy Fair for fifteen or so years now and providing coverage of one kind or another for maybe five. Every single year me and my toy dork buddies end up discussing the reveals at length and the obvious next step was just to record one of those conversations and then upload it.
HA , HA, no.
Dearly beloved geeks! We celebrate our 150th episode with the most guests ever! We gathered together at the new Titan Comics and Games in Smyrna, GA to discuss the current state of geekdom. ESO cohosts Mike, Mike and Bobby presided over the event with the following representatives: Anthony Taylor, award-winning artist Mark Maddox, Alex Autrey (7th Row Center Podcast), Doctor Q, Mark Heffernan, Nikki Rau-Baker, Andrea Judy, Patrick Freeman, CD Ske, John Strangeway, Peter Cutler, and Victor Fishman. And there was much filibustering! God bless the United States of Geekdom!
