New Podcast! The X-Cast X-Files Podwatch – Episode #41 (Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man/Tunguska)

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.

My first appearance of the fourth season is covering the episodes Musings of a Cigarette-Smoking Man and Tunguska with the fantastic Zach Moore. It’s actually the last hurrah of this particular pairing, but talk about going out on a high note. Well, half a high note. Half a high note and a really weird Senate-driven cliffhanger.

My second appearance of the third season is covering the episodes Pusher and Teso Dos Bichos with Clara Cook. One of those episodes I adore and the other… I don’t. Guess which is which. Go on. This is my first episode with Clara, although we do a couple more before the end of the run. So keep your ears open for those.

New Podcast! The X-Cast X-Files Podwatch – Episode #19 (Aubrey/Irresistible)

My second appearance of the second season is covering the episodes Aubrey and Irresistible with the wonderful Zach Moore. I should be doing roughly one episode per season with Zach, who is a bit of a deft hand when it comes to podcast hosting and a shrewd eye when it comes to X-Files criticism. This episode is particularly worthy of note because I’m a big fan of Aubrey and find it somewhat overlooked and underrated.

Tony has assembled a fantastic array of guests and hosts to go through The X-Files episode-by-episode. I’m honoured to be a part of it.

My first appearance of the second season is covering the episodes Red Museum and Excelsis Dei with the always insightful Christopher Knowles. I do a couple of episodes with Chris over the course of the podwatch, and very few people understand the workings of the show, its symbolism and its fascinations, as thoroughly as Chris. It was a joy recording these episodes, and I hope it’s as much fun listening to them.

New Podcast! Discussing Opening The X-Files with The X-Cast!

Hello!

As readers may be aware, I published a book of X-Files criticism this year. The book is called Opening the X-Files, it is published by McFarlands Press, and it comes with a foreword from the great Kumail Nanjiani.

Tony Black very generously invited my on The X-Cast to talk a little bit about the book, and maybe answer some questions about where it came from and what it’s about. It was, as ever, a pleasure and I was very glad of the opportunity. You can hear the podcast below.

In the meantime, if you do want to order yourself a copy of Opening the X-Cast, it is available at the following links.

The eBook is available for purchase at:

The physical book should now be in stock at:

Give the episode a listen below, and keep your ears open. I should be back a few more times before the podwatch wraps up.
