Roy's Rocket Radio: The UK Podcast for the Pop Culture Geek, Technology Nerd, and Creative Wizard
Summary: Welcome to the greatest show in the multiverse! Strap yourself in for a rip-roaring rocket ship ride into the Nerd-O-Mania Nebula... Whoosh! From the backroom of the Rusty Rocket Tavern in Altair City Spaceport, the Captain presents the UK show for the pop culture geek, technology nerd, and creative wizard. He discusses both enjoying and creating science fiction, fantasy, and horror entertainment, in the form of books, comics, movies, TV, games, and toys. An inveterate tinkerer (you have to be to run this old tub), he also talks about whatever happens to catch his tech mad fancy. Produced using alien technology, eldritch powers, and caffeinated beverages since July 2012.

Happy New Year!
Happy Boxing Day! Today I talk about Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)(Some Spoilers)
After a long absence, I'm back to wish you happy Christmas and pick up where we left off, before we were rudely interrupted by circumstances beyond my control. Tonight, we finally return to my ongoing, but highly irregular, Doctor Who marathon, to talk about Doctor Who: The Ambassadors of Death (1970), as well as the Doctor Who Christmas Special 2017.
I've been ill, and I still am, but now I'm back. I'm just here to wish you all a quick happy Christmas Eve, and to tell you to tune in again tomorrow for a full Christmas show.
