Tosche Station Radio – Episode 21
On this week’s Tosche Station Radio, Brian and Nanci talk cliffhangers!
Kicking off the show, the hosts highlight what’s new on the blog. Nanci did a guest spot over on the Star Wars Beyond the Films podcast talking about gender in Star Wars. Brian continued the summer X-Wing retrospective with his look back at The Krytos Trap by Michael Stackpole. Reader and listener Blizz sent in an art entry for the Replace Mara’s Catsuit contest.
In Fixer’s Flash, Nanci has been busy writing, but managed to find some time to re-watch the Star Trek reboot. She also watched Batman and Robin for a guest appearance on another podcast. One of these films was good. She’s also been reading Operation Montauk by Brian Young. The other was not. Brian finally saw Prometheus and while both the hosts initially enjoyed it, they liked it less and less the more they thought about it. After months upon months of prodding from Nanci, Brian finally read Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor. The hosts launch into a (spoiler filled) impromptu discussion on the book.
Deak’s Dirt starts off with Mercy Kill mini-excerpts. To say the hosts are excited for this book is an understatement. On the things-to-buy front, the X-Wing eBook bundle will be going on sale July 30th. They quickly go through a bunch of Celebration VI announcements before stopping to discuss an interview Tor conducted with author Karen Miller.
This week’s Camie’s Concerns threatens to cause countless heart attacks as the hosts dive in and discuss their favorite cliffhangers in film, television and literature. Some cliffhangers are delightful. Others are maddening. Which ones stick out in Nanci and Brian’s minds?
For Wormie’s Works, Nanci highlights a podcast she enjoys and Brian links to a cover of a TV theme.
- Nanci’s pick for Fanwork of the Week: Wrong Opinions About Movies
- Brian’s pick for Fanwork of the Week: Ballad of Serenity cover by Margot MacDonald
Rounding out the show, the hosts answer a question from a listener and highlight their pick for Trope of the Week: The Ascended Extra.
