GWC Podcast #6

In this special edition of GWC we respond to some calls from a listener.  Highlights: Starbuck’s “special” relationship with Tigh, Caprica Six and the resistance, and everyone’s favorite topic (at least when not confronted with it personally) — sex and love.

    Wow do I feel special. You guys did an entire episode on my phone calls? I have to laugh because you guys always seem to talk about the same ideas that I have before I can even get them to you. Ah well. Great minds and all that, right?

    Thanks for the conversation on these issues, although most of them were rehashing. It’ll definitely be great to begin new discussions with fresh material after tonight!

    Great ‘cast. One of my hobbies is archeoastronomy and have been considering doing my own Galactica podcast discussing the references to terrestrial archeology and astronomical/astrological symbology in the show. Anyway, I enjoyed the show and wanted to pass on some info on the actual horoscope and the 13th Constellation, if you already haven’t looked it up.

    ACTUAL TRUE ZODIAC AS OF 2000 AD

    ARIES = APRIL 19 – MAY 13
    TAURUS = MAY 14 – JUNE 19
    GEMINI = JUNE 20 – JULY 20
    CANCER = JULY 21 – AUG 9
    LEO = AUGUST 10 – SEPTEMBER 15
    VIRGO = SEPTEMBER 16 – OCTOBER 30
    LIBRA = OCTOBER 31 – NOVEMBER 22
    SCORPIO = NOVEMBER 23 – NOVEMBER 29
    OPHIUCHUS = NOVEMBER 30 – DECEMBER 17
    SAGITTARIUS = DECEMBER 18 – JANUARY 18
    CAPRICORN = JANUARY 19 – FEBRUARY 15
    AQUARIUS = FEBRUARY 16 – MARCH 11
    PISCES = MARCH 12 – APRIL 18

    Looking forward to more of your shows!

    Chip you are AWESOME! Thanks so much for that info! I knew something about the thirteenth constellations but I couldn’t remember the details during the podcast. Thanks for bringing it to light. Any idea who came up with these dates in the first place?

    Probably aliens… ;D

    I really don’t know, but there is enormous speculation of a lost “wisdom cult” existing prior to the the Egyptian and Mayan cultures that fed both cultures with the engineering and agricultural knowledge that help build those civilizations. If I can find anything more, I’ll let you know.

    I’m liking your podcasts.

    RDM said somewhere (possibly DVD commentary) that the glowing back thing was done just because it was cool, and I think he regretted going there in hindsight. That said, yours is the best retro-eplaination that I’ve heard.

    TOS did have a different units of time measurement – microns, centars, etc. I got the impression that the names were based on metric measurements. TOS was aired when there was a big push for the US to adopt metric measurements, hence the fact that the thought process was there and that it was easy for the viewers at that time to understand.
