Welcome to Show #36!
Jeffrey is in Telluride this week, looking for snow to film, and regaling Tim and Summer with tales of the beautiful skyscapes and the free beer.
Next, we talk with Carrie Dobro, best known for her role of Dureena Nafeel on Crusade, but she also portrayed a medic in the third season episode “Exogenesis” alongside Jeffrey and The Snackman.
Carrie tells us stories about sitting in the makeup chair for hours, her different experiences with mud and tight costumes, and with extensive prosthetics in “Hypernauts”, and the fun of working with her Crusade co-stars, and the physical nature of Dureena’s character. Watch out when she’s playing with the blades.
We also learn about her role as producer of Pickets, a highly-regarded film that had made it’s way around the film festival circuit, and the challenges of filming on a schedule when your outdoor sets have been victimized by weather. And bugs. And poison ivy. Unfortunately, we can’t see the film playing anywhere or on DVD anywhere, but we’ll keep an ear out and let you know if it becomes available.
If you want to listen to us live as we record episodes, tune in at 9pm EDT/6pm PDT. You can find all of the necessary info here, including instructions on how to join the IRC chatroom for live interactive feedback from the studio.
Listener Feedback: Tim reads an email about the Vorlons in the “Babylon Squared” time loop, an email of thanks from Matthew for doing the podcast and helping keep the B5 fandom passions alive. Jeffrey’s really fascinated by the shiny gondolas going up and down the river.
A giant supersized feedback show will be coming your way next week!
Your feedback does matter, and is welcome! You can call, 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.
