Captain Roy's Rocket Radio Show: The UK Podcast for the Culture Geek, Technology Nerd, and Creative Wizard
Summary: Welcome to the greatest show in the multiverse! Strap yourself in for a rip-roaring rocketship ride as you blast off into the Infinite Ocean of Weird. Whoosh! Orbiting Altair City Spaceport's Ye Olde Rocket Tavern at a bar tab defying distance of 1 AU, the Captain presents the UK podcast for the culture geek, technology nerd, and creative wizard. He talks about books, comics, movies, TV, games, toys, art, and music; with an emphasis on genre entertainment; particularly science fiction, fantasy, and horror. 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 C8H10N4O2 based beverages (following a night of C2H5OH overindulgence on Wednesday the 4th of July 2012).
