Reality Bomb Episode 036

On the thirty-sixth episode of Reality Bomb, we've given over the whole episode to a special documentary that looks back on the special programs on Doctor Who made by Eric Luskin and New Jersey Network for PBS in the 1980s. We listen in on some of the best moments of these documentaries, talk to fans including Chris Hankenson, Drew Walco, Felicity Kuzinitz, Steven Schapansky and Warren Frey about what those programs meant to them and what it was like to live in a world of PBS pledge drives. And we talk to Eric Luskin himself about what it was like to go behind the scenes on Doctor Who in the 1980s and interview some of the most important people from that period.

SPECIAL NOTE: Reality Bomb will be doing a live show in New York on Saturday, September 17 at the Way Station in Brooklyn. Details are on our Facebook page.

We're looking back on Doomsday 10 years later with Head Over Feels' Sage Young and Kim Rogers. And we wake up to the possibilities in what will probably be one of the lower regarded stories from the past season when Martin Hajovsky brings Sleep No More to the Gallery of the Underrated. All this plus an infomercial that will change your life when it comes to freaking out about Doctor Who!

Sorry dear listeners. We've decided we need to take the month of February off.

It was a hard decision but Alex and Graeme are hard at work on another project and their day jobs have been super-busy. With the hiatus on Doctor Who in 2016, we thought this might be a good opportunity to take a break.

But, fear not, we'll be back in March (and Patreon subscribers, we'll be giving you something extra down the road). 

Graeme and Alex talk about this a little more in depth in this mini-segment. We'll see you in a few weeks!
