THE REPORTER Episode #2

Star reporter Yolanda Davenport has been tasked by GFL Commissioner Rob Froese to get the real story behind the murder of Grace McDermot. Krakens runningback Ju Tweedy was accused of that murder, an event that almost got him killed by Orbiting Death owner and crimelord Anna Villani, and led to Ju joining the Ionath Krakens. In just her first few hours on the case, Yolanda has already been threatened by Quyth Warrior Marik the Covetous, who may be connected to Krakens owner Gredok the Splithead. Why would Gredok get in the way of finding out the truth about McDermot’s murder, and Ju’s possible guilt?

FridayFix • Kids These Days and also the Hulk

ARealGirl here. Last Friday, Scott and I sat down to rant about the state of superheroes back when we were kids. Sigler was quite upset at how good the “kids these days” have things, because back when he was a boy, superheros were everywhere — but not so much supervillains

Oh, and I was afraid of the Hulk when I was a kid.

SHOW NOTES:
I’m still looking for the promised pic of me as a kid. If I find it (no luck at Thanksgiving at my Mom’s house) I’ll post it.

Here’s a little internet proof (for what that’s worth) of the Bruce/David Banner changes.

WTF with Glenn?

SPOILER ALERT!

There, I said it. If you keep reading, that’s your business. I have given you due notice of spoilers and stuff.

All right, let’s get into this.

The “is he dead / is he not dead” debate has gone on for a few weeks, and we finally have an answer. […]

FridayFix • THE EXPANSE

Non-spoilery review of the first four episodes

We were lucky enough to get an advance screener of SyFy’s new show THE EXPANSE. Click the play button below to hear our take.

THE EXPANSE Episode #1 premieres on streaming services on Monday, Nov. 23, and on Syfy on on Monday, Dec. 14 at 10/9c

How did we get these episodes early? Because we’re horribly important and terribly busy. You know, my wallet’s to small for mah $100s and my diamond shoes are too tight. But with great benefit comes great responsibility — we get to tell you what we think of this new series, which is based on the novels of James S.A. Corey. Warning: this podcast contains some serious squee-ing.

FridayFix • Top 5 Books

Another in our continuing series of Top Fives! This time it’s our Top Five Books.

Top5As a reminder, we do this ambush style, where Scott only has about ten minutes before we record to think of his list. So this isn’t meant to be a ‘master class’ on what Sigler thinks you should read, or anything like that.

It’s just books we love, ordered how we thought to order them on this very day. You can trust that these books are truly favorites of ours.

FridayFix • BLUE BALLS live

This has to be one of the most-fun things ARealGirl and I have ever done on this podcast.

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/149_FridayFix___BLUE_BALLS_live_reading.mp3

For SiglerFest2k15, we wrote a script for Pookie Chang’s BLUE BALLS cop series. Those of you who know the name “Pookie Chang” have read my novel NOCTURNAL (and if you haven’t read that, you’re only hurting yourself, so get on that). We drafted readers from the Junkies in attendance, then went at it for a live reading. Listen in, my friends, to 15 minutes of hilarity and general stumbly confusion.

FridayFix • Dogs in Costumes

Friends, I’ll be honest: this FridayFix™ serves mostly as a vehicle for me to post all these adorable photos of the Dog of Døøm, Reesie the Piece, and her best pal Stella.

No great insights into running a small business, no tips on how to get more writing in your day. But a goodly amount of pics of these adorable pups. And a grousing Future Dark Overlord who can’t help but smile at his tiny Princess Leia.

ALIVE Episode #17

In the last episode, Em discovered her true purpose in life — to be a receptacle for a much older version of herself, a 1,000-year-old monster that created Em to be overwitten. Em refuses to be a victim, and she refuses to be erased. In this episode, she must rally the Birthday Children to face this horrifying reality, and prepare to fight back.

FridayFix • Top-5 iTunes Plays

A few weeks ago on the FridayFix, Scott and I talked about one song (each) that transported us to another time in our lives. On that ‘cast, we decided we’d sit down and talk about the Top-5 most listened to songs in each of our iTunes. In this ‘cast, we have that conversation.

I won’t lie: This might be the most fun we’ve had recording in a loooong while.
