Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

verityextract2016Chicago TARDIS was, once again, a delightful experience for Lynne and Erika. They are joined by honorary-Verity, Amber Ensign (Erika’s sister!) as they discuss what made this year’s con great.

Apologies if you were expecting a special live version of “In Defense Of”. We had a blast doing it on the main stage this year, but the tech gods were not with us, alas.

If you were there in person and would like to share some memories of the con, please feel free to do so in the comments!

Did you/will you see it in the movie theatre with a bunch of fellow fans? Have you watched it at home? What did you think? Let us know in the comments!

verityepisode122Another excellent first for you this week! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we discuss the 4th Doctor’s first episode. It’s also a first in a few other ways–including in our hearts for some.

How do you feel about “Robot”? Do you love the big lug, the wackypants new Doctor who defeats him, and Sarah Jane’s go-get-’em attitude? Or do you think it’s so blatant a King Kong ripoff it distracts you from the story. Let us know in the comments!

verityepisode121Series 1 continues! Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we discuss a serious Slitheen, a crowded TARDIS, immature breakups, and more! “Boom Town” tends to be a bit of a forgotten episode, so we tried to give it its due.

How do you feel about this ep? Did you forget about it? Or do you find the personal drama exciting? Let us know in the comments!

verityextrapodcastingIt’s a “very special episode” of Verity! Join Deb, Katrina, and Liz as they talk about why they do what they do, how podcasting has changed for them, and what it’s meant to them. Deb calls this one a biscuit episode, and Liz reveals that one of us is really a talking flamingo. It’s a great mix of personal seriousness and silly fun!

Do you have thoughts about Verity!‘s evolution or podcasting in general? Let us know in the comments!

verityepisode120In continuing with our year of firsts, we decided to check out Doctor Who‘s first ever spin-off! Join Deb, Erika, and Liz as we discuss the gem that is K-9 and Company. Sarah Jane in her “natural” habitat! The greatest aunt of all–Lavinia! stereotypical rural folks! A cult! And perhaps most importantly of all, a very concerned goat.

Have you seen this jewel of a Christmas special? Please tell us what you thought in the comments!
