I’ve started a podcast!

I have been running the Cinema/Gorgeous blog for almost 3 years now, and in that time I’ve gotten a ton of questions about films, games, art, internet culture, and filmmaking. I’ve loved having the opportunity to have a dialogue with the many (now almost 35,000) people who regularly follow this blog. This podcast offers me a much more longform way to communicate with you guys and share my thoughts on the things we both love.

This first podcast is a bit of an experiment, but I hope you enjoy it! If people respond to it, I would love to start doing these regularly. Use the ask button to send me your thoughts on the show, or reach out to me on Twitter.

Let me know what you’d like to hear me talk about in future episodes!

New Podcast: Geologist and Museum curator Denton Ebel is joined by Amanda White, a con-focal microscopy specialist, and Ellen Crapster-Pregont, a doctoral candidate conducting her research at the Museum, in a discussion of the 2 and 3-dimensional analysis of these space rocks.

CORRECTION: In this episode, Rachel claims that there is only one Super Doctor Astronaut Peter Corbeau in the Marvel Multiverse. This is patently untrue. There are numerous versions of Super Doctor Astronaut Peter Corbeau in the Marvel Multiverse, who may or may not be able to combine Voltron-style into a giant Corbeau Singularity.

The Gaining Life - Episode 41: SrPercivale

In this episode we talk to SrPercivale. In elementary school a 400+ lb. man came to talk to his class and his interest in obesity was born. Hear how his urge to gain really began in high school, how his weight yo-yoed in college, and then gaining more rapidly to pass into the 300 lb. club after graduation. Learn what kind of dream body type he would like to have, his feelings about gaining to an extreme size even if it comes with health issues and physical pain, balancing gaining and career goals, and how he would seriously consider growing to immobility if the right guy and circumstance came his way.

Running Time: 54 mins.

Did the Great Machine’s choices of Sinclair, Londo and Draal make any kind of sense? And what did Steven say in the last podcast that left Chip spluttering?
