Extra! – We Get By with a Little Hell from Our Friends

This week Deb comes up with a cooperative way to friend-source game material for the podcast. Join her as she puts Erika, Katrina, and Lynne through a new edition of “Seven Minutes in Heaven/Hell” with topics by friend-of-the-show (and as we recorded, birthday-boy) Kyle Anderson! We’re calling this new targeted crowd-sourcing feature “We Get By with a Little Help from Our Friends”.

What do you have to say about these topics? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!

Episode 228 – The Rings of Akhaten Things I Hate About You

Time for another bit of hindsight. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we discuss Deb’s modern Who pick to look back at, “The Rings of Akhaten”. Fandom really hates this one. And we (mostly) didn’t love it the first time around. Do we now? Have we grown souls (according to Liz)? Listen and see!

Have you revisited this story recently? If so, what did you think, and how did that compare with how you felt about it in the first place? And how do you think this story compares to “Vincent and the Doctor”? Let us know in the comments!
