New Podcast! On “Filibuster #63” Talking “Opening the X-Files” with Lee Hutchinson

I had the pleasure making a guest appearance on Filibuster with the great Lee Hutchinson, who very kindly invited me on to talk about my book, Opening the X-Files. Always a pleasure to talk about the X-Files, especially with Lee. I also talk a little bit about the origin of the book, the processes that I used when writing it, and the differences between doing a blog project over several years as opposed to filtering that down for a book.

You can listen to the podcast directly at the Filibuster website, but you can also listen to it directly below.

New Podcast! The X-Cast X-Files Podwatch – Episode #102 (Sunshine Days/The Truth)

I’m thrilled to be a part of The X-Cast X-Files Podwatch, a daily snippet podcast rewatching the entirety of The X-Files between now and the launch of the new season. It is something of a spin-off of The X-Cast, a great X-Files podcast run by the charming Tony Black. Tony has assembled a fantastic array of guests and hosts to go through The X-Files episode-by-episodes. With the new season announced to be starting in early January, Tony’s doing two episodes of the podcast per day, so buckle up. And we’re at the end of the final season of the original series.

This is my last appearance on the podwatch, although hopefully I’ll be back before long on another X-Cast activity. It’s a pleasure to be joining Tony to discuss the last two episodes of the final season of the original run, Sunshine Days and The Truth. The X-Cast will be continuing beyond this to look at The X-Files: I Want to Believe and the revival, but this is the end of the line for me, at least for the moment.

My final collaboration with the wonderful Baz Greenland finds us discussing the highs and lows of the season, the mythology-heavy Trust no 1 and the Doggett-driven John Doe. No points for guessing which is the high and which is the low.

This time, I’m reteaming with the great Baz Greenland to dig into two early ninth season episodes, 4-D and Lord of the Flies. 4-D isn’t too bad, and is actually quite interesting on its own merits. Lord of the Flies is a little bit more like the stuff that flies traditionally swarm around.

With the new season announced to be starting in early January, Tony’s doing two episodes of the podcast per day, so buckle up. And we’re in the final run of the original series.

I’m actually covering most of the first half of the ninth season, and I’m joining Tony to cover Nothing Important Happened Today II and Dæmonicus, two of the episodes that set the tone for the season ahead. And not really in a good way.

Fun fact: This was the last episode of the regular podcast that myself and Tony recorded, perhaps explaining our giddiness. Or maybe the season was already getting to us.
