The Whostorian Winterly Episode 4: Peddle To The Metal (w/special guest ADAM PEDDLE)
Shannon sits down with former independent wrestler and occasional on-air commentator for Newfoundland wrestling federation New Evolution Wrestling (N.E.W), Adam Peddle. Parlaying a childhood love of wrestling into being ranked #494 of 'The Pro Wrestling Illustrated' magazine's 'Top 500 Wrestlers' list in 1999 before the age of 17, Adam has brought a level of passion to every facet of his various fandoms. A retro-gaming podcaster, he reviews the 'Doctor Who' Expansion pack entries in the Lego 'Dimensions' video game, and the duo discuss the 2017 BBC Books 'Doctor Who Paper Dolls' book. Adam also tells of befriending a very young future podcaster the world would come to know as... 'Stylin' Steve Lake.  From having his wrestling gimmick allegedly stolen by WWE alumni Tommy Dreamer, to being summoned specifically by the 'homicidal, suicidal, genocidal' Sabu,  to a never-ending online feud with Hasbro Toys and forcing an exasperated Walmart Canada to block him on Twitter, Adam pulls no punches!  LINKS: Find Adam on Twitter: @ConsoleCulture Adam's Youtube reviews page: .youtube.com/channel/UCQ-HgbXbiPFKI9g60f7qDVQ N.E.W Wrestling dedicated Youtube channel, including Adam's on-air work: www.youtube.com/channel/UCbB3Dlqt7zzCTjCrZMG1XYw Tell Walmart Canada they messed with the wrong guy on Twitter: @WalmartCanada Cut a promo on Hasbro in Adam's name on Twitter: @Hasbro Follow us on Facebook: Facebook.com/TheWhostorian For 9 plus years of podcasts, videos, and blogs: TheWhostorian.ca Find Shannon at Twitter: @Marshalllush Find Shannon's book reviews on Goodreads: Search 'Shannon Marshall Lush' Find Shannon's video reviews on Youtube: Search 'Marshall Lush' Preview/buy Shannon's book: https://www.amazon.com/His-Soldiers-Coat-Private-Columbus-ebook/dp/B00G5N2UDG

The Whostorian Winterly Episode 3: The Whostorian Historian Part 2 (w/special guest STEPHEN NOLAN)
In the second and concluding visit to the podcast named for the renowned magazine he co-founded, Stephen Nolan dives right in with thoughts on the New Series. When last we left the pair, Stephen and Shannon in 2005 fretted over the future of 'Doctor Who' with the abrupt departure of Christopher Eccleston. In an engaging and freewheeling chat in 2020, the duo look back at the developments of the last 15 years; what worked, what didn't, what stories and actors stand out, and most importantly, which actors made the best people to meet! Convention devotee Stephen relates stories of Paul McGann needing a hug, introducing John Barrowman to Newfoundland Screech liquor, former pop star Billie Piper's surprising warmth to fans, and the pros and cons of introducing overt socially relevant themes into the Jodie Whittaker era.  Note: due to prevailing weather conditions impacting the editing process, this episode does not have an intro by Shannon. It simply begins seconds after the conclusion of Part 1.  Basically, when a podcast has 'winterly' in the title 'and' is produced in Canada during winter, folks, you have to play with the deck Mother Nature deals!  LINKS: Follow us on Facebook: Facebook.com/TheWhostorian For 9 plus years of podcasts, videos, and blogs: TheWhostorian.ca Find Shannon at Twitter: @Marshalllush Find Shannon's book reviews on Goodreads: Search 'Shannon Marshall Lush' Find Shannon's video reviews on Youtube: Search 'Marshall Lush' Preview/buy Shannon's book: https://www.amazon.com/His-Soldiers-Coat-Private-Columbus-ebook/dp/B00G5N2UDG

The Whostorian Winterly Episode 2: The Whostorian Historian Part 1 (w/special guest STEPHEN NOLAN)
In this long-awaited interview, influential Newfoundland 'Doctor Who' fan-club co-creator Stephen Nolan makes his debut on the podcast named for the iconic magazine he was instrumental in conceptualizing. From his earliest days as a primary columnist and contributor, to overseeing the growth of a fan club that would grow to encompass 60+ members with publishing, advertising, independent film and audio divisions, and an expansive social presence locally, Steve did it all.  Now, nearly a decade from the birth of the podcast that serves as the spiritual successor to his creative efforts, Steve sat down with Shannon for an engaging, in-depth chat that provided the 'Who's Who of Who', detailing the efforts of himself and a cast of characters with love and passion for 'Doctor Who' that became inspired and united in common cause: to spread fun, joy, and good humour in the mutual pursuits of all things 'Whovian'. Whether commiserating with Catherine Tate over lost Lotto earnings, sticking up for Sarah Sutton in the face of bad reviews, or buddying around with John Barrowman, Steve has a plethora of stories, insights, and merchandise to show for a lifetime of devotion to The Doctor.  Part One of Two.  LINKS:  'Tristam Island' retro video game demo, with concept art and packaging created by Stephen Winsor (@WinsorPrint): https://hlabrande.itch.io/tristam-island-demo Friend of 'Whostorian' Gary Scott Thomas (@gstkrty953) podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/heres-what-we-know/id1540320003 Follow us on Facebook: Facebook.com/TheWhostorian For 9 plus years of podcasts, videos, and blogs: TheWhostorian.ca Find Shannon at Twitter: @Marshalllush Find Shannon's book reviews on Goodreads: Search 'Shannon Marshall Lush' Find Shannon's video reviews on Youtube: Search 'Marshall Lush'  Preview/buy Shannon's book: https://www.amazon.com/His-Soldiers-Coat-Private-Columbus-ebook/dp/B00G5N2UDG
