Happy 10th, New Who!

Wow, I haven't posted anything since November!  Thought I would start the first post of 2015 off with a link to Charles and Jesse's latest podcast!

Join Charles and Jesse as they give you their take on "Rose", the first episode of the modern era!  From Charles:
"I can feel it...the turn of the earth.  The ground beneath our feet is spinning at a thousand miles an hour.  The entire planet is hurtling around the sun at sixty-seven thousand miles an hour.  And I can feel it.  We're falling through space, you and me, clinging to the skin of this tiny little world.  And, if we let go...That's who I am.  Now forget me, Rose Tyler.  Go home."

We're a bit late for the tenth anniversary, but my good friend and co-host Jesse Jackson and I are FINALLY back with another episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! And this time, we reverse the polarity back to the 2005 Christopher Eccleston classic, "Rose"!

Exploring the first episode from the modern series of Doctor Who, Jesse and I discuss things like the tenth anniversary of Doctor Who's return, American fans watching the episode in 2005 with crappy internet dial-up, adapting to the Nu Who format, finally having special effects that don't suck, Christopher Eccleston's accent, the greatness of Douglas Adams, the continuity gap since the 1996 TV Movie, the long-awaited return of the Autons, borrowing from "Spearhead from Space," the influence of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Farscape, watching Doctor Who with Jesse's family, Eccleston disappointing Whovians more than once, burping Auton trash bins, Rose's obliviousness to Auton Mickey, Rose being all in Roseworld and treating Mickey and Jackie like crap, the Doctor's grunge phase, the dark days of Doctor Who on the Sci Fi channel, our Reverse the Polarity segment, and more!

You can find them here on iTunes , Stitcher, or, if MP3 downloads are your thing, you can find them here!  Be sure to check them out on Facebook and Twitter!

I know it's a little late, but happy 10th New Who!
