Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

*dusts off blog* We’ve been a bit busy this month, 1. We are setting up Uncanny. The big, robust website is being built, contracts are being signed,  we’ve found our first issue’s materials and are working on converting them into ebooks, authors are being paid, and are also working on all that setting up a small business […]

Thoughts on Deep Breath

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

I just watched “Into the Dalek” last night, and will share my thoughts on that on the next Verity!. I have some first impressions, and some nitpicks about “Deep Breath.” In general, I really liked most of the episode. It was a pretty good introduction of a new Doctor, although I still think “The Eleventh […]

New Verity! Episode 49–Into the Deep Breath

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

I’m not on this one, but you know you wanna.  I need to listen to it and write my 2 cents post!    

New Verity! Extra! Series 8! Series 8! What do we appreciate?

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

IT’S ALMOST HERE! Pardon the shouting, but we’re a bit excited. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we talk about what little we know of the upcoming Series 8. We also have a nice little discussion about out spoiler policy–and spoilers in general. Poor Erika does too much Verity! homework and learns more than she […]

5 things make a post-Convergence update post

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

  1. New Verity Episode! Episode 46: Communication Breakdown is live. 2. Work is quiet, in the sense that I’m mostly working on things like annual reports and tenure portfolio reviews, that I can poke at slowly over time well before the deadlines. We are planning Digital POWRR workshops in the fall (I will be […]

Verity! Extra! Doctor in a Strange Land

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

This week’s Extra! features crossover madness! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy, as we muse over what it would be like to plop the Doctor into other fictional worlds. What makes a good crossover? Which Verity isn’t really comfortable with crossovers? Who coins the term “Capaldi-flicted”? And who observes that Capaldi “gives good cape”? Listen and see! […]
