Welcome to Show #280!
It’s not goodbye, it’s farewell… we’ll meet again, and if we don’t, we will see each other again in the place where no shadows fall.
We’ve always been here, and so have you all.
Jeffrey returns from his many expeditions to explore along the Rim to join Tim, Summer and Jeremy for the final official episode of The Babylon Podcast.
We reminisce about days gone by, dive into a few more anecdotes from when the show was being filmed, and how much fun we’ve had and how much we’ve learned about our favorite show over these past seven years.
Brad from Podculture sends his regards, and his thanks for being involved in the show’s post-production early on, the Critical Myth team of John, Edmund, Bronzethumb, and Gary send their appreciations and farewells, and Edmund toasts Jarsto, a faraway friend who gave us all much to enjoy during the first few years of the show.
Just how many podcasts did we inspire to get off the ground over the years? And rumor has it that the final chapters of Three-Edged Sword over at Voices of Babylon will see the light of day soon.
Everyone runs through a stream of memories from the show, and we even had a run of puns off the official recording, just for the live stream listeners.
And yes, the trend of people who’d want to hear Babylon Podcast stylized commentary tracks on Babylon 5 and Crusade episodes, in MST3K style, is growing. Scary!
Lurker’s Guide 2.0: Summer is expanding the documentation to be covered at Lurker’s Guide 2.0, the major change being converting the episode guide into a full Wiki with cross-referenced topics, tidbits and everything you’d want in a Wiki. She’s also still searching for pictures of rare collectibles, photos of magazine covers and toys, and all sorts of other B5 goodies that didn’t get included in the original guide during the years after Crusade. Let her know if you want to lend a hand.
More Parody/Filk Songs Wanted: If you know of any more B5-related fan songs out there, definitely let us know, so we can let other B5 fans know where to buy them! And if those CDs are out of print, let’s brainstorm on ways to get those songs back out there for fans!
Babylon 5 Information Gathering: If you know of a dead or abandoned B5 related website that may be in need of a new home, let Summer know! Maybe we can mirror it here or house it on a sister site.
And yes, we will still take donations, to help offset the costs of keeping the site online and active, and for the work that will be done over at the Lurkers Guide.
