Extra! – Polly-Anneke

verityextraannekeIt’s time for another con-sourced interview! Join Deb and Erika as they chat very briefly about Deb’s experience interviewing Anneke Wills at Long Island Who. Then listen to the interview. This lady has had quite a life! Tragedy, success, and strawberries with John Lennon. What more could you ask for?

Extra! – Gallifrey One Love

verityextragally2017It’s our annual recorded-live-in-person Gallifrey One Extra! Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we tiredly gush over how lovely this year’s Gally has been.

Episode 129 – The Doctor as a Valentine

verityepisode129No, we’re not talking about the Black Guardian, it’s (just past) Valentine’s Day! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we celebrate the holiday-of-love by discussing the Doctor as a romantic figure. Not all of us are equally comfortable with that notion, but as always, that leads to a fascinating discussion.

What are your thoughts on the Doctor as a heart-throb? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – You Autocomplete Me (aka Think Like an Idiot)

verityextraautocomplete01It’s time for a new game! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we try a nifty new game that we shamelessy stole from another podcast. It’s a rollicking good time, and Erika only flounders a little bit as she dons the mantle of “Game Show Host”.

Did you enjoy us trying to think like an idiot? (And do you have feels you just must get out about the casting of the next Doctor?) Let us know in the comments!

Episode 128 – Lynne’s Love: Frocks and Fireplaces

verityepisode128It’s high time we started on the love part of our year of love and lasts. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we cover Lynne’s love, “The Girl in the Fireplace”. Liz and Deb do some LJ fanthropology, Erika has a change of heart, and Lynne gushes about France and frocks. Of course we do our usual random-tangent thing too. X-men fighting leprechauns, anyone?

What did (and do) you think of this ep? Do you love it like Lynne or hate it like an old-school Rose/10 shipper? Or somewhere in between? Let us know in the comments!

Our First Repeat! – Episode 46 – Communication Breakdown

verityepisoderepeat46Because of the emotional ups and (mostly downs) of the last week in the world, the Verities did not have it in them to do a podcast–about love or anything else. Instead, we’re releasing our first re-run. Join Deb and Erika as we give a short intro explaining why we’ve chosen to re-release this particular episode. At this time in history, we feel it’s really important.

The conversation Deb talks about in the intro starts at 49:12, so feel free to skip to that if you only want to hear the truly relevant bit. We hope you enjoy!

As always, comments are welcome–especially messages of hope, perseverance, and love.

As published July 16, 2014

This week we do lots of talking about villains who don’t. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we discuss what makes silent villains so creepy and effective. We also discover just how many Moffat-baddies are non-talkers (or mostly non-talkers). And do stick around for a particularly interesting tangent about gender roles and power dynamics in communication. This Verity! ep gets positively analytical! Almost scholarly! Almost.

And of course, let us know who your favorite quiet killers are–or weigh in on the deeper debate about communication in general. Or both!
