Welcome to Show #59!
Pardon the audio quality. We know it sounds like crap.
Jeffrey tells about the benefits of green beer. Who knew Kosh was Irish?
Brad from Podculture is busy adopting B5 novels that he’s finding in used book stores in his area, and we’ll have those available to other fans. Not sure how yet, but we’ll figure something out.
Deep Geeking: No Deep Geeking this episode. It’s all voicemail, kids!
Listener Feedback: Elias makes another connection between “Infection” and “All Alone in the Night”: Marshall Teague played Nelson and Ta’Lon; Gary from Jacksonville comments on Bruce Boxleitner’s guest appearance on CBS’ “Cold Case”; we’re treated to a Londo-G’Kar montage; Gary from Jacksonville also comments on products from Mongoose Publishing; Edmund from Greenville comments on “All Alone in the Night” and the power shift that results from the imbalance created on the Grey Council; comments on Summer’s comments that Kosh didn’t know about Lorien being at Z’ha’dum and why Lorien’s waiting for someone; Edmund comments on the SuperNova podcast featuring Mira Furlan, and her insights about JMS’ use of the real conflict in the Balkans to infuse the fictional conflict between the Narn and Centauri; Chris from NZ reveals that he never knew Zima was a real and actual product that people consumed in a fit of insanity, and he’s happy he never drank it; T’jon of the Narn Regime accuses Jarsto of being a Centauri agent attempting to hijack the Babylon Podcast and other FarPoint Media productions; Martin in England lets us know how B5 was aired on Channel 4 back during it’s original run, and the nods JMS inserted for the British viewers; Jarsto laments the overuse of puns; Edmund defends the practice of taping TV shows to cassette to listen to later; Curt in St George comments on the similarity between the dream sequence in “All Alone in the Night” and the dream sequence in “Twin Peaks”, and makes the B5 connection with “Twin Peaks” by using The Hidden which guest starred Claudia Christian.
Your feedback does matter, and is welcome! You can call us at 206-338-2259, or email us and tell us what you think… and likely hear it played or read on the show. Please try to keep the voicemail comments as brief as possible.
Shameless related begging: Summer’s also really hoping to convince any publisher to eventually do an essay collection on Babylon 5. If you’d be interested in buying one if they did do a B5 collection, let Summer know, either here in comments, or over in the Babylon Podcast forums.
