Dean Alfar comes on the show to geek out about Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez's horror epic Locke & Key. We talk about our favourite characters, major plot points, and why we love this comic book series so much.

My guests Gabriela Lee and Francis Quina join me to talk about The Lego Movie. This'll be a spolierific episode, so catch the movie and listen to us pick it apart and talk about why we love it. There's some fun stuff here as we talk about the narrative, the meta-levels of the movie, what makes it fun, and the Legos we dream of owning.

Dean Alfar talks about his story "Six from Downtown." I asked him questions about its inspiration, the techniques he applied, and what he thinks about writing stories. He also provides some insights and tips about writing the fantastic in a Filipino context.

Hey welcome back everybody!

Been gone for about a month, but here we are rolling on and bringing you a lot of new episodes for the new year. We start off talking music with poet, teacher, and music fan Vincenz Serrano.

We talk about a few New Order songs, trying to understand why we love the band and its music.

You can visit the blog over at lumpenculturati.wordpress.com for links to the songs if you'd like to listen to them.

Thanks for dropping by and we hope that you'll listen to the fun episodes that are lined up this year.

In this episode writer and comic book nerd (also my roommate at the UP Faculty Center) Francis Quina talks about Morning Glories.

The ongoing series by Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma is a mind-blowing ride, and Francis and I talk about what makes it great. A good deal of that is how it's a lot like one of our favorite shows, Lost, but it's also a mix of teen drama and high school stuff.

I got to record the panel I was moderating, Writers as Readers featuring Gerry Alanguilan and Eliza Victoria at the Filipino Reader Conference this year. In this recording Gerry and Eliza talk about the books that they love, and they field some questions from the audience and me that all show their love for books and reading. Fair warning, the audio is a bit rough (and I did some minor edits due to some technical difficulties at the start). This was a live recording in a big event, so there's a fair amount of mumbling that gets picked up, you'll hear a lot of camera shutter clicks, and other noise. Also, some bits in Tagalog, so hope you don't mind. In any case, it's a very fun little session where these two incredibly talented artists get to tell us about the things they love to read. You can start updated your TBR piles to include a lot of the books that they mention. Special thanks to Danry Ocampo for the photo. You can visit the companion blog post here to read more.   Enjoy listening and please drop us comments and share with your friends.

In this week's podcast we invite Prof. Gabriela Lee to geek out about Doctor Who. I know it says this episode is supposed to be about the 50th anniversary episode, but we go in all kinds of directions here. It's a double length special because we were talking about so much Doctor lovin' timey-wimey stuff.
We invite comments (please don't kill me for all my flubs and lapses in Doctor mythos) and suggestions and also if you want to tell your friends and help promote please do so.
Not too much to put on this companion post since the discussion is pretty long. But we promise that we'll also talk about the Five-ish Doctors soon too.
Also, I'm going to need your help to keep this podcast running. As such, I've put a new donation button here on the blog, and anything you can give is much appreciated. I'll use it to pay for podcasting space so that I can keep this show going. Thanks guys!

For the first episode I talk to Prof. Mikey Atienza about “Sink” by Isabel Yap. In discussing the story we question aspects of Filipino science fiction, look at a story set in the future that gives us a glimpse at the Greenhills we once knew, and question our humanity as we look at a little robot kid.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
