Verity! Extra! – In Defense Of… 3 Rounds Rapid

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

VerityExtraIDO3RounsRapid-210It’s been a while, but once again, we’re making good on our promise to defend Doctor Who. Those bits you think are dodgy? We’ll find something good in ‘em–even if it kills us. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy for our most ridiculous Extra! yet. Deb springs a last-minute rules change on us, and it results in consternation and hilarity. Can the Verities keep their defenses to two minutes? (EXACTLY two minutes!) Listen and see!

Verity! Episode 41 – The Legend of Sontar: A Linx to the Past

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

VerityEpisode41-210Our survey of Doctor Who baddies continues with those kings of the potato people themselves! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we chat about Sontarans. We all rewatched “The Sontaran Stratagem” and “The Poison Sky” as a jumping-off point for this conversation, but fear not classic Who fans, there’s plenty discussion of their origins and development throughout the series (and even Big Finish)!

What do you think of these (usually) stocky, militaristic foes? Let us know in the comments!

While you’re commenting, please vote! We’re going to try our hands at an audio commentary. Let us know which one of these stories you think we should do. (Or let us know on Twitter using #VerityVotes.)

  • The Gunfighters
  • The Visitation
  • Black Orchid
  • Paradise Towers
  • Father’s Day
  • The Curse of the Black Spot


[Tansy note: obviously Paradise Towers is the best option here. RED KANGS RED KANGS RED KANGS ARE BEST.]

PLUS, feel free to ask us any Doctor Who-related questions you might have. We’ll start covering those in future Extras! (Again, you can also ask on Twitter, using #AskVerity.)

Galactic Suburbia the John Campbell Memorial not a Hugo Episode Show Notes

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

Two Galactic Suburbia episodes in one week? What the WHAT? Don’t panic, podcast minimalists, this one is totally not an episode. Sure, it might involve me, Alisa and Alex talking about the Hugo shortlist for an hour and three quarters, but that doesn’t mean it’s a podcast. It is what it is.

Go check it out! You can download or stream the latest Galactic Suburbia at our Podbean site.

1957 Hugo AwardIn which we do discuss the Hugo shortlists both Retro and Current, but this is not an episode. Not at all. For… administrative reasons.

Retro Hugo Shortlist 1939.

Hugo Shortlist

Brandon Sanderson says interesting things about fandom groups, and the Wheel of Time nomination.

THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO NOMINATED GALACTIC SUBURBIA FOR BEST FANCAST, WE LOVE YOU TOO. WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH WE WOULD GIVE YOU FIVE STARS ON ITUNES.

Galactic Suburbia 98 Show Notes

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Forgot to put these up on Sunday! Episode 98 is now available to download or stream directly from the site.

In which we approach Fringe from multiple sides, rant about Game of Thrones, muse about cake lit and Alisa is a PhD student again! Bonus supplemental awards chat (but not in depth about the Hugos because we recorded before the shortlist went public) and an invitation to CAKE OUT for our 100th. See you there…

Galactic Suburbia 96

Monday, March 24th, 2014

In which we announce the 2013 Galactic Suburbia Award for activism and/or communication that advances the feminist conversation in the field of speculative fiction.

You can download the episode here, stream it direct from the computer, or pop over to iTunes.

[If you want to listen unspoilt to the episode discussing shortlist and winners of the GS Award, listen Noooooow without reading the rest of the show notes. Don't even glance at them! Move along, nothing to see here]

Galactic Suburbia 95

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

New episode is up a day early! Get it here.

In which, the Hugo host debacle online conversation became a many-tentacled AI that wants to steal our souls, and ladies are cranky.

Speaking of Cranky Ladies – check out Tansy and Tehani’s crowdfunding campaign.

News In Depth: The Hugos v. Jonathan Ross, Safe Spaces & Online Discussions

Foz Meadows laying out the original drama in her usual inimitable style.

Cheryl on the arguments for & against Jonathan Ross as host as particularly on the importance of Intersectionality – how to be a good ally, and why you LISTEN to why people are upset, even if it’s inconvenient to you or your community.

The Chairs of LonCon apologise for the situation – weirdly, this graceful and thorough acknowledgement of their responsibility for how the chain of events went is often not being mentioned in coverage of the discussion.

UPDATE, PLEASE READ:

The downside of recording several days ahead of broadcast is that sometimes the conversation we are contributing to moves on without us – in particular with the “Hugos and Jonathan Ross” conversation we recorded on Wednesday night there has been some serious reframing of the narrative, some of it highly gendered.
