Pex Lives: A Doctor Who Podcast
James Murphy and Kevin Burns are both Certified Minor Internet Personalities with a shared love of Doctor Who. Explore the history of the show with them, as they watch classic serials and chat with each other each month about them. Each month, the pair will pick a classic serial to watch and then break down, exploring the themes, characters and production of the given story. There will also be jokes. New episodes on the first Sunday of every month.

Phil sits down with David J Haskins of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets to completely ignore both of those things in favor of talking about magic and Haskins's work with Alan Moore, including V for Vendetta, "March of the Sinister Ducks," The Moon and Serpent Grand Egyptian Theatre of Marvels, and The Birth Caul

This week Jack is joined by returning Shabcast guest, and writer of the brilliant blog Vaka Rangi (which is now part of Eruditorum Press), Josh Marsfelder.  They talk Trek for a bit, then Aliens and James Cameron, and then get on to another of Josh's passions: the Titanic (movie and reality).  It's a lively chat, loaded with fascinating, mythbusting details. 

Part 2 next week, in which Jack and Josh conclude talking Titanic and move off onto myriad other topics.

At last that guy who sings the unsettling theme music about burning down the world shows up for an interview, in which we completely fail to talk about him because this month we're just promoting Neoreaction a Basilisk. So instead we talk about accelerationism, hyperstition, and the end of the world.

Neoreaction a Basilisk remains available on Kickstarter all May.

Phil is joined by Eruditorum Press's very own Jane Campbell to talk about the gnostic and mystical implications of Neoreaction a Basilisk, which as I'm sure you know by now is available on Kickstarter all through May. And if you enjoy these podcasts, you should really back it, because holy crap the hosting bill this month is mental.
