MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast continues previewing the 2019 Gallifrey One convention, this time with our great friends from HeadOverFeels.com, Kim Rogers & Sage Young!  It’s become a pre-Gally tradition to visit with Sage & Kim before the convention to get the rundown on all the cool things they’re participating in at Gally!

We will talk about the epic upcoming “This or That” panel session with Pearl Mackie, Nicola Bryant, and Rosie Jane.  “This or That” was a favorite of everyone (including the guest participants) at last year’s Gally, and this year’s edition should be a blast!  (Saturday 1 pm in Program A)

We will also talk about another HoF-led favorite, the Fan Video Happy Hour – Sage & Kim always pick a fantastic crop of emotional and fabulous videos put together by some amazingly talented folks.  Bring your tissues! (Friday 4 pm Program E)

We’ll then cover the individual panels that the ladies will be on – Sage is on the “Doctor Who Crossover: Musicals Edition” panel (with another friend of the show, Susan Stanton) at 6 pm Friday in Program C.  This should be a fun and interactive panel where the panel of ardent fans of Broadway musicals recast various works with Doctor Who characters playing parts.

Kim is moderating the “Midnight in the Garden of Who and Evil” at 11 pm Saturday in Program C.  This 18+ panel will focus on the world of fan fiction and will include some dramatic readings of works created by the panelists and by the audience.

This is a fun conversation with Kim & Sage, and it’s a definite sign that Gally is ALMOST HERE!  Come have a listen!

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast is back with another preview of the 2019 edition of the Gallifrey One Convention – today focusing on the Academic Track – titled “Time Lord Timelines: An Academic Symposium”!  We’re thrilled to be joined by Joy Piedmont and Paul Booth, who have organized a wide-ranging and interesting collection of topics and speakers at the Symposium, which will take place on Friday, February 15 from 3 pm until 7 pm in Program B.

We’ll talk to Joy and Paul about how the Symposium came about (this is the 2nd edition), what types of subjects and topics they look for, and how they chose this year’s presenters.  We’ll then dive deep into the schedule and go over each presentation (including one that John is keenly interested in and had even thought of suggesting himself!) individually to get a bird’s-eye view of what can be expected.

It’s a terrific and interesting conversation with Joy & Paul that really gives the full rundown on what to expect.  Please have a listen!

It is indeed the MOST WONDERFUL TIME… OF THE YEAR!  That’s right, the annual Gallifrey One Convention, the world’s largest (and best) Doctor Who Convention is just around the corner, and MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast will be previewing the convention in full this week!  It’s the 30th edition of the con; it’s John’s 15th and my 13th (and the podcast’s 9th!); and it looks to be another corker of a weekend!

We’ll talk all about the great guests (Including CATHERINE TATE, PEARL MACKIE, JOHN BARROWMAN, COLIN BAKER, and many more!), the fantastic fan panels (including the 2 John will be on), and of course the many other amazing highlights to come (THIS or THAT, FAN VIDEO HAPPY HOUR, IN DEFENSE OF, the ACADEMIC TRACK, and so much else).

It’s our annual deep dive into and through the schedule.  We’re super excited for Gally, and we hope to give listeners a taste of what’s to come this year!  Also,  John finds out what game, featured in a panel at this year’s Gally, that I’ve NEVER played, which stuns him while i promise to maybe, perhaps, possibly try to participate in one of the other great games.  So, it’s chock full of Wibbly-Wobbly Timey-Wimey Stuff!

We will also be doing 2 more previews of Gally: one with Joy Piedmont and Paul Booth, focused on the “Time Lord Timelines: An Academic Symposium“, the Academic Track that they’ve put together (dropping Thursday); and one with our great friends Kim Rogers and Sage Young of HeadoverFeels.com for next week that’ll discuss in detail THIS or THAT, FAN VIDEO HAPPY HOUR, the FanFic panel, the Doctor Who/Musicals crossover panel and more.

MUTTER’S SPIRAL Podcast is back to talk about the solution to “The Tsuranga Conundrum”, episode 5 of Series 11 of DOCTOR WHO, written by Chris Chibnall and directed by Jennifer Perrott.  We discuss what worked really well for both of us as well as what might not have hit the mark.  We’ll look at where things may be going, given that we’re now at the halfway point of the series.  As always, we’ll have trivia, ratings, and lots of other PTINGS!  Please have a listen!

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!
