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 back to the “real world” from a DELIGHTFUL GALLIFREY ONE Doctor Who Convention (the 28th!), and we’re continuing recapping the con and keeping that GALLYLOVE vibe going with our great friends Sage Young and Kim Rogers of HeadOverFeels.com !  We’ll focus on their throughts on this year’s shindig and specifically their participation in panels, podcasts, games, cosplay, etc!  Kim talks about her participation in Paul Cornell’s “Would I Lie To You” game and her triumphant stint during “In Defense of…” PLUS her turn as the maniacally cruel BBC America executive during the live REALITY BOMB Podcast!  Sage was dropping knowledge all weekend – she did a great mini-panel during REALITY BOMB as well as excelling on the Chibnall Era Transition and Class Is Now in Session panels!  They’ll tell us about the fantastic PUNK COMPANIONS cosplay that they and many of their friends did, too (it was AMAZING)!

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!

The 26 Seasons of Gallifrey One, the 2015 version of North America’s pre-eminent Doctor Who convention, is in the books, and John and Will return for one last recap.  They’ll discuss the weekend – what they liked, what they wish they’d seen, podcasts they did and will be doing – everything in general.  Join them for a quick burst back through the excitement of Gally!

NOTE: This was recorded on Friday afternoon; shortly thereafter, John and his wife learned of the passing of her mother.  Deepest condolences go out to his wife V, John, and their entire family.  V’s mom was a nice lady and well-loved; she’ll be missed.
