Pex Lives: A Doctor Who Podcast
James Murphy and Kevin Burns are both Certified Minor Internet Personalities with a shared love of Doctor Who. Explore the history of the show with them, as they watch classic serials and chat with each other each month about them. Each month, the pair will pick a classic serial to watch and then break down, exploring the themes, characters and production of the given story. There will also be jokes. Sometimes they may barely mention the show. New episodes every month.

The Bondage crew is joined by Jack Graham to discuss Moonraker. Hijinks and technical difficulties ensue.

We're here already, pod people!  Jack, George, and Elliot reform to talk about one of the greatest of all remakes, one of the greatest of all sci-fi movies, one of the quintessential films of the 70s, the remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, starring Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Veronica Cartwright, Jeff Goldblum, and Leonard Nimoy.

Another podcast excursion into the Media Hauntological, this time focusing on The Shining, the 1980 masterpiece by... well, by several people, including but not limited to Stanley Kubrick.  (See also a triumvirate of brilliant women: Diane Johnson, Wendy Carlos, and Shelley Duvall.)

This time George and I are joined by Kit Power.  Because we've decided we hate Elliot.  No, no, no.  I kid.  If the Joker ever tries to corrupt one of us, it'll be Elliot, because he's the best of us.  Truth is, George and Kit and I have long been planning a Shiningcast, since long before George, Elliot and I launched the project that I, to the silent embarrassment of everyone else involved, insist on calling It *IS* The Same Log.  

Luckily, it fits very well into the running thread of IITSL.  By agreement with Elliot, George and I went ahead with Kit, and this episode slots nicely into the series.

It's a long, long episode in which we mostly talk about the film but also talk a lot about the novel, some about the TV miniseries, and even a little bit about Doctor Sleep (book and movie).  As well as the usual manifold digressions.

Content warnings for discussion of very difficult subjects, and also for gushing because this is very very my favourite movie.

The longest Shabcast ever - both in terms of its total running time and of how long it has taken to release - draws to a close.  

In this final fantastic episode, Holly offers some closing remarks about texts, fan art, fan fiction, fantasy and its relationship to real action, play, etc.  

As you might expect by now, these remarks are complex, thought-provoking, and challenging.  They take in matters of great delicacy, and even darkness and danger.  Touched upon in our final discussion are: the nature of fantasy, the line between the pornographic and non-pornographic, unregulated fan spaces, attempts to regulate them through community pressure, accusations and abuse in fandom, the safety of children to think through their development through fiction and gameplay, possible exploitation of young fans, good and bad faith in discussions of what is or isn't appropriate, the complexity of moral judgement and legality re representations of criminal and immoral acts, realism as ideology, the tension between exploration and normalisation, etc, etc.

Some of this is knotty stuff so content warnings abound.


Elliot, George, and Jack continue their podcasting odyssey into the Media Hauntological, branching off into a related but new direction with Robert Eggers' 2015 masterpiece The Witch

A little extra.  George, Elliot and I don't consider, let alone take a course of action as drastic as 'stop talking' lightly.  Our Blair Witch conversation continued for another near 40 minutes after the point where I ended the episode.  And here it is.

Aaaand, for Halloween itself, here's yet another spooktobery new episode of It IS The Same Log (because these days we are *all* Heather in the woods sobbing "It's not the same log!" over and over again but... I gotta tell ya... it *is*) and once again I (Jack) am joined by Elliot Chapman and George Daniel Lea.

My (Jack's) October odyssey through the Media Hauntological with erudite and enthusiastic pod-mates Elliot Chapman and George Daniel Lea continues and culminates with a consideration of the source text of this show's title, 1999's terrifying, ominous, ineffable, and intensely freighted 'Found Footage' classic The Blair Witch Project, taking in digressions on The Terror, Stalker, Come and See, Salò, Cannibal Holocaust, Doctor Who, Peter Watkins, David Bowie, Baudrillard, Frederic Jameson, Lovecraft, and LeGuin.

We had some technical problems at the start and poor old George was a bit runny of nose with a nasty cold (rather appropriate given that BWP features some of the most celebrated snot-shots in cinematic history) but I've worked my usual folk magic - I am to podcasts what Mary Brown (maybe?) is to threatening corn dollies and stick sculptures - and made it so listenable your ears will cancel their plan to overthrow you and run your body themselves (yes, I was in on it).

As ever, my Patreon backers got advance access to this, so consider chucking me a dollar a month.  I have such sights to show you... slightly earlier than I show other people.

There's a substantial off-cut from the end of this conversation which you'll get as a separate extra, early next month.

Welcome back to the loooong discussion between myself, Jack Graham, and the excellent Holly Boson (@fireh9lly) in which Holly explains Final Fantasy VII to me, a total novice, in pitiless detail.

Sorry for the looooooong gap between this and the last installment.

So here, at last, is Part 4

This episode is mainly about why the remake is amazing.  Even so, some possibly disturbing subjects are mentioned, so I must again attach a content warning.

The series will conclude with a fifth part, probably next month.  Or possibly in eight months, knowing me.


Aaaand here's another spooktobery new episode of It IS The Same Log (because these days we are *all* Heather in the woods sobbing "It's not the same log!" over and over again but... I gotta tell ya... it *is*) and once again I (Jack) am joined by Elliot Chapman and George Daniel Lea.

This time we tackle the legendary and infamous Ghostwatch, created and aired by the BBC in 1992 much to their own horror.  Written by Stephen Volk, directed by Lesley Manning.  

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghostwatch

I would probably call this one of my very favourite pieces of uncanny media, brilliantly crafted, genuinely scary, and a veritable bottomless pit of implications.  I don't find much disagreement from my co-hosts and, once again, our enthusiasm runs riot.  We cover many topics from the BBC internal reaction, the public furore, media 'realism', gothic marxism, etc.  We were even plagued during recording by terrifyingly appropriate technical glitches.  Skype got media hauntological on our asses.  

Once again, my backers got days of advance access.
