Seriously, Dan Podcast 10: Lady S. and Andy Nale (and a little Dr. Who!)
This week Seriously, Dan is joined by Lady Soliloque, an author who perfected her craft with fan fiction. Also joining us is Andy Nale, recruitment and employment expert. Lady comes directly to the show to talk about her Enoch The Traveler novel which is coming out in July. She also discussed Dr. Who and fills in for my regular co-hosts who are lost in translation (or traffic).
In a departure from our usual show, we present a discussion with Andy Nale that took place on Career Talk on WYXC 1270 AM in October while I guest hosted the program. We cover employment, managing your job search, and what employers are looking for.
And a little bit, we talk about contributing to the on going IndieGogo Campaign to raise funds for Seriously Dan on the air.

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to run a toy panel at my personal favorite sci-fi convention – TimeGate. It’s focused around Stargate and Doctor Who, but this year the emphasis was definitely on Doctor Who. Between the 50th Anniversary and the presence of an actual Doctor – Colin Baker – for the first time, things couldn’t have gone down any other way.
What follows is an excerpt from my recap of TimeGate. The full version is available on NeedlessThingsSite.com:
It was very important to me that I wear my Phantom Troublemaker Speed Suit during the toy panel. This was the first panel at a con that I had ever been in charge of. Granted, nobody had actually put me in charge. I kind of just decided that I was gonna run the thing. If I was going to be on a panel about toys, particularly Doctor Who toys, then I was going to be in charge. And it was going to be great. That’s why I had loaded up a suitcase full of Doctor Who toys from across the ages and brought it with me.
“THE ALMOST PEOPLE” – Series 6, Episode 6, Story 217b – Written by Matthew Graham; Directed by Julian Simpson – The Eleventh Doctor, Rory, and Amy are at their monastery in the future caught between the humans and the gangers and blabbedy blabbedy blabbedy. Are we even supposed to talk about what happens in the first 95% of this episode? Because Amy Is A Ganger, And Original Amy Is About To Pop Out A Baby.
Does anyone actually care about THE ALMOST PEOPLE? Isn’t everyone really just gonna talk about that last few minutes and try to figure out what that means?
I feel bad for Matthew Graham. As bland and stretched out as THE REBEL FLESH was last episode, the second half of his two-parter is a marked improvement. There’s real tension here, characters have actual emotions, and there’s some clever bits to keep you guessing. Though if you didn’t guess the Doctor swerve, well, if we were watching together you would have totally heard me groan and say, “So obvious” and if you didn’t know what I was saying you totally would have faked it.

It’s a computer-hacking, neo-nazi-whackin’ good time!
