MUTTER’S SPIRAL is (well, was) live from Gallifrey One!  This post will collate links to all 3 of our live podcasts from the 2018 edition of the Doctor Who convention.  We were able to record on Friday night, Sunday morning and again post-convention to do shortish recaps of each day’s happenings.  Friday and Sunday (recapping Saturday) were previously published, just not on this page, so we thought we’d do one consolidated post here.

We also have links in this post to the blog of Alyssa Franke (aka Whovian Feminism).  Alyssa wrote an emotional recap of the AMAZING “Gallifrey Waits No More” panel from Sunday that we also talk about in detail on this newest podcast (the Sunday wrap).  There are also links to Paul Cornell’s blog with his wrapup of the weekend as well as the delightfully evil playlist from Head Over Feels’s Fan Video Happy Hour.

We will also have guests on in the weeks to come to discuss their own (and our) convention experiences, since this was such an amazing and special weekend, even by Gallifrey One’s already high standards.  Also, Friday night’s podcast features our friends  Susan & Morgan!

So, enjoy the podcast(s) and definitely check out the linked material if you’ve not seen it, and thanks as always for listening!

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year on the MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast!  We have our great friends Kim Rogers & Sage Young of HeadOverFeels.com back with us for our Annual PREVIEW of GALLIFREY ONE, the amazing DOCTOR WHO convention upcoming this Feb. 15-18 in Los Angeles!  Gally looks to be EXTRA amazing this year with special guests headlined by STEVEN MOFFAT as well as SO MANY more actors, writers, directors, and more, plus great panels with brilliant fans of every description!

One of the MOST exciting parts will be Sage and Kim bringing their “This or That” panel to the main stage at Gally with guests Jemma Redgrave & Camille Coduri!  We’ll talk about how this came about along with their curation of a FAN VIDEO HAPPY HOUR at Gally, also.  Plus, we’ll talk about their other panels, John’s panels, and all of the OTHER panels and podcasts and symposiums that we are so excited to see!

It’s a family reunion weekend for all of us, and that sense of community is what keeps bringing us back every year (well, sure, the amazing guests and programming help, too!).  As Sage said on the podcast, this podcast is always a favorite for all of us, because it means GALLY is ALMOST HERE!

We cover what to look for if it’s your first time at Gally, what panels we are anticipating most, and hopefully many other helpful tips for first-timers and veterans alike!  We hope you enjoy it!

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast is back, and we’ve got a double shot of guests this week – the Sisterhood of Burt!  Our friend and great guest Kayti Burt returns, and she’s not alone – her sister Jen joins us as well!  We will talk all about the idea of fan entitlement, especially as it relates to changing narratives in fandom.  We’ll talk Doctor Who, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Twin Peaks, X-Files, and other properties, so it’s a wide-ranging conversation this week!  We will first get their Doctor Who origin stories and find out their favorite stories of the Capaldi Era.  We also get into Gallifrey One briefly, as the upcoming convention is their first.  Also, I’ll do a ribbon reveal, as the ribbons that John and I ordered happened to arrive right as recording started.

It’s an entertaining and thoughtful discussion, and Jen & Kayti are great and fun guests!  Twitter information for them: For Kayti, it’s @KaytiBurt and for Jen, it’s @ourownstrings .  You can get a link to their brand new podcast from their twitter feeds, too!

We hope you enjoy this podcast!

BTW, Capaldi Era pt 2 coming soon, as well as our annual GALLIFREY ONE preview podcast!

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast is back with a final wrap-up of LI Who 5 as well as some news about the upcoming Gallifrey One 29 and the new guest announcements for it (MOFFAT and MURRAY GOLD!) .  It’s a quick chat talking about those topics as well as some squeeing about the teaser for TWICE UPON A TIME that was shown during the Children in Need special in the UK this past week!

We’ll be off next week and back the week after with a new pod— NO, REALLY, I MEAN IT, WE WILL DO ONE .. -cast, likely focusing on a classic Series story and the modern one that featured the same Aliens, from a story we missed first time around.

Also, here’s the link to the Head Over Feels#FanVidHappyHour playlist – lots of feels here!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aWMvHT9Dq8…

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast 131 talks all about “The Pyramid at the End of the World”, written by Peter Harness & Steven Moffat, directed by Daniel Nettheim.  It’s part 2 of the “Monks” trilogy, and, candidly, it’s not our favorite.  John and I discuss what worked, what didn’t, and the big flaws we each found in the episode.  We will go into various theories we have, as well as real world issues that affected the creation of this episode, while holding out hope that Part 3 next week (and Toby Whithouse) can save this story.

There’s also discussion of the first batch of guests announced for 2018’s Gallifrey One convention – classic stars, new series stars, writers, directors, and annual favorites of us all!  Gally may be 9 months away, but we are already eagerly anticipating it!

Of course, there’s trivia (7 questions this week), a brief news recap, and a cat named Puncher makes his podcast debut!  Please take a listen!

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast returns with a fun and thought-provoking deep dive into various DOCTOR WHO topics with our good friend Kathleen Schowalter!  She’s a brilliant PhD, she’s a super analytical and thoughtful WHO fan, and she’s a delight to talk to!  We talk about her WHO “origin story”, including: her initial fear of Tom Baker and how her feelings towards him have changed since she got back into WHO fandom in adulthood.  We also talk more about how Joseph Campbell’s “Hero’s Journey” pertains to Doctor Who and the companions, building from the fascinating panel that she excelled on at Gallifrey One, as well as just which WHO story she feels is the BEST example of that in the WHO canon.  We dive into favorite episodes, both classic and new, and she turns the tables on us with some thoughtful questions to John and me about our likes and dislikes in WHO.

We also discuss the news of the return of the ORIGINAL Mondassian Cybermen to Series 10 for the first time in over 50 years since “The Tenth Planet” and how we all feel about their return (spoiler alert, we are almost as excited as Peter Capaldi – LOTS).  We discuss the news of British Bookmakers shutting down wagering on the next Doctor after lots of money came in on Kris Marshall, and Kathleen and John help me figure out just who that is!  We discuss what we think Chris Chibnall’s WHO might look like as well.

It’s a really enjoyable and engrossing conversation to have participated in, and we hope listening to it is as pleasurable as recording it was!   We’re already looking forward to having Kathleen back on the show.  Listen and find out why!

We’re going back in time on this week’s MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast: a re-posting (the original one is long gone) of “Vincent & The Doctor”, one of our very favorite episodes and one of our first podcasts (#10)!

We recorded about ten minutes of new content as an introduction, then you’ll travel by TARDIS (OK, speaker) back to June 2010 for our discussion of Vincent.  This seemed suitably gushy and happy for the holiday season!

Please enjoy our gift to you (and Doctor Who’s gift to all of us)!  Happy Holidays!
