Episode Five: Hither Came Conan...
This episode gives a very brief critique of the three main Conan titles being published by Marvel these days: Conan The Barbarian, Savage Sword Of Conan, and Age Of Conan, as well as mentioning Savage Avengers, which debuts today, that brings Robert E Howard's Cimmerian into the modern Marvel world! You can find articles - reviews & promos etc - I've published on this character, and related ones, under the Conan tag on HeroPress:  https://heropresstwo.blogspot.com/search/label/Conan You can find Marvel's own articles about their take on Conan here:  https://www.marvel.com/search?limit=20&query=Conan

Episode Four: New Name, More Game
My longest, script-free, podcast to date. Bit rambly, bit unsteady, lot of 'umming' etc but it has some gaming content, so I'm pleased with it.

Episode One: Mortal Engines (a review)
In which I gush over the big screen adaptation of Philip Reeve's Mortal Engines, my favourite work of contemporary literature. Also featuring special guest commentary from my wife, Rachel.

Episode 0.75: Doctor Who - The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos
My quick review of last night's Doctor Who season finale, The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos. Certainly one of the stronger episodes of a very uneven season. We also have a voicemail message from Ivy (aka The Happy Whisk).

Episode 0.5 - Doctor Who: It Takes You Away
My rambling thoughts on this week's episode of Doctor Who. Sadly another disappointing story in a season of underwhelming outings. PLUS, my first voicemails!!! This is another "test" episode, with me experimenting with formats, production methods etc, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless.
