GWC Podcast #147

This week we take in BSG’s A Disquiet Follows My Soul and are joined by the irreplacable Nicki Clyne. Highlights: we wonder why Tigh seems so comfortable with pregnant-Six having just seen Ellen, explore the long-term effects of discovering the human nature of Callie’s baby, note that we finally saw Gaeta’s meeting from the end of the webisodes, discuss possible motives for Gaeta’s new motivation and direction, express concern that Adamlin may have created the current nasty situation in the fleet by ruling with an iron fist while paying lip service to the representative government, weigh the value of democracy vs. fleet survival (as colored by last week’s talk with Richard Hatch and his take on Zarek and Cain), cite some examples of how the masses in the fleet aren’t so powerless after all, hear Ms. Clyne’s insights into Callie (i.e. motherhood, losing herself, and seeing Tyrol with Tori) and acting, and take listener calls about last week’s premiere.

    I’m a big fan of GWC, but I may have to stop listening. I simply don’t have 2 1/2 hours a week to catch up on your podcast. Last week I had to cut it off half-way through. It’s your show and your sweat equity and the fun you have doing is obvious. I look forward to it each week. But I’m literally running out of time. Have you considered shorter podcasts? Suggestion: breaking them into two separate ‘casts with the first one focusing on the core of the current week’s show.

    I agree with ChairSpread.
    Great job.
    With Ron Moore’s commentary, its becomes un-manageable.

    there are tricks with iTunes and Media Player.
    ITunes/iPod/iPhone: If you convert it to AAC. then rename the extension to m4b (Audiobook) iTunes can play the “faster”. Approx 1.8x speed.
    it does adjust the pitch so people don’t sound like chipmonks.

    Windows Media Player: can do this without converting the file, change the speed to “faster”

    Good suggestion, Brian. Thanks for the back-up.

    Thanks for another podcast guys. They make a great capstone to a night of new bsg.

    They do seem to be getting longer and longer.

    @john b: Yeah but I doubt anyone will ever top Richard Hatch for longest rant. Heheheh Man that guy can talk. Reminds me of how I was in college, only he’s far more intelligible, wiser, and probably not always wasted. 😀

    Anyway, that’s why it is a good idea to listen to them the next day while you’re doing some mindless busywork. Much the same way most people listen to talk radio. My only complaint is that I can’t count the number of times I have wanted to call into the show over some comment or interesting point raised only to face the reality that I’m listening to a recording.

    And I always miss the live casts.
