Doctor Who New Adventures, Video Games and East of Heysham on the PodKast

June 4, 2015

Wow. After last week’s “low-key” podKast with Christian Cawley and James McLean, this week we bring in Gareth Kavanagh and the conversation swings and turns from video games and New Adventures to other podcasts, past podKasts, and Philip Martin’s upcoming East of Heysham, which Gareth is producing.

All in all this is an eclectic podKast, which also includes an updated on Vworp Vworp! issue 3.

Listen to the PodKast

There are several ways to listen. In addition to the usual player above, we’re pleased to announce that you can also stream the podKast using Stitcher, an award-winning, free mobile app available for Android and iPhone/iPad. This pretty much means that you can listen to us anywhere without downloading – pretty neat, we think you’ll agree! (Note that it can take a few hours after a new podKast is published to “catch up”.)



What’s more, you can now listen and subscribe to the podKast via our Audioboom channel (formerly Audioboo)! Head to and click play to start listening. You can also comment and record your own boos in response to our discussions! Meanwhile you can use the player below to listen through Audioboom:

You haven’t clicked play yet?! What are you waiting for? As well as our new Stitcher and Audioboo presence you can also use one of these amazingly convenient ways to download and enjoy this week’s podKast.

  1. (chortle) James’s comment on 1980s video games completely sums up the decade socially, politically and morally – “The shiny cover belied the rubbish inside”.

      Not really. The 80s were great, if you actually lived in them. Rubbish is a lot of now.

        I think there was a great deal of rubbish which we enjoy with nostalgia and because we knew no better. I remember, being a Spectrum user, how many games I had to accept would look awful, but because my expectations were low, when they looked bearable, or above a certain standard, they looked great. Bionic Commando on the Spectrum I played for hours, days, weeks. Looks terrible if you look now, but embraced it back then. The cover, was much, much better.
