Trials and Triple Libations

JB, Chris & Sean take turns acting as prosecutor, defender and judge as they place a handful of Doctor Who stories on trial. This is probably the crudest episode we’re recorded thus far from beginning to end, so we apologize in advance.

TODAY’S (randomly picked) TRIAL DOCKET: “Listen”, “The Rescue”, “The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood”, and “The End of Time, Parts 1 & 2”.

The Chicken Soup of Doom

Hey, it’s JB. Chris, Sean and I went almost three hours recording this one. We were really inebriated and got into a very cathartic and politically charged discussion, most of which you’re NOT going to hear. I’m lucky I got an hour of usable material for this episode. Please forgive the audio levels. I promise to be the designated driver next time we record an episode, cause I get really fucking loud in this.

CONTENTS INCLUDE: A botched intro, listening to Yes and Queen, Chris gets tested for Covid-19, sponsorship, “professional” podcasts, problematic creative people and cancel culture, James Cordon’s Doctor Who Cosplay Challenge, bitching about aging (again), what’s a Cloister Wraith?, Moffat mansplaining the Bootstrap Paradox, Nicola Bryant offering personal hypnotherapy sessions, why do they defer to the First Doctor on multi-Doctor stories?, JB really needs to stop yelling into the mic, the “Lockdown Video” featuring Bill & Nardole, Doc liked “City of Death”, watching “The Sensorites” as punishment, “The Edge of Destruction” as a Pinter play, should the Police Box be abolished from the series?, filming new episodes on video and CSO, “Rosa” and confronting our white privilege, Sean praises “Vincent and the Doctor”, “Home”, everyone should watch Mr. Rogers, cocky leaky soup, “The Noodle Doodle Man” by Jon Pertwee.
