The Gunfighters 4

Steven and Erika finish “The Gunfighters” from 1966…4 days ago. This is the second podcast they’ve recorded about it. But it’s the only one that still exists.

The Gunfighters 2-3

Erika and Steven continue watching 1966’s “The Gunfighters”, and finally suss out what’s going on with Dodo. Oh yeah, and there’s whiskey involved.

The Gunfighters 1

Steven and Erika haven’t podcasted together since last year! But they’re back to classic Doctor Who with the musical, comic romp that is 1966’s “The Gunfighters”.

Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways

Erika and Steven complete their frolic through the 2005 series of Doctor Who. It’s a strong finish for RTD’s “first album”. So that means the foreseeable future will be all classic-Who all the time. Probably.

Doctor Who Day 2016

Steven and Erika are flying high…literally! This LDW ep is an experiment from 30,000 feet. We hope you are all having a wonderful Doctor Who Day!

The Celestial Toymaker 4

Erika and Steven wash their hands of the final episode of this Doctor Who serial from 1966. The boardgame thing is fun, but the “stupid ball” is back in play in a big way.

The Celestial Toymaker 2-3

Steven and Erika do a rare mid-week episode, having watched a couple of Doctor Who eps from 1966. No more creepy clowns, but creepy dolls and infuriating nonsense! Oh, and more racism! SIGH…

Erika Ensign and Steven Schapansky


The Celestial Toymaker 1

Erika and Steven move right along to Doctor Who’s next story from 1966. It’s…less(?) racist than some others. Yay? It’s also full of fun and games…and creepy clowns. Yay?

The Ark 3-4

Steven and Erika finish off the second half of this story (which is really two stories in one) from 1966. Steven is surprised at Erika’s reaction to the next story!

The Ark 1-2

Erika and Steven had so much fun talking about “The Massacre”, they decide to toddle along to the first couple eps of the next Doctor Who story from 1966.

Between these stories, we’ve developed quite the headcanon revolving around Steven and Dodo. Is Steven Dodo’s great-grandfather? Is Dodo high as a kite on LSD? Listen and see if we can convince you!

The Massacre 2-4

It’s been a super-rough week in the real world, so Steven and Erika decide to escape into a little 1966 Doctor Who. Erika continues to enjoy this story quite a bit! (Though she does descend into fearful worry at one point. Steven gamely keeps her on track with the delights of the Doctor and Co.)
