    This week we scour the wastelands of humanity and never ending expanses of the human mind and invention. First up is my unabridged audio book review of Armageddon's Children by Terry Brooks, as the Word and Void battle it out over the fate of the world torn apart by war. My special guest for this week is Martin Johnson, composer of from the recent production of the stage play Evil of the Daleks that took place in England back in October. We talk about what it is like to write music for such a production and the challenges that went into making music for a stage version of a lost Doctor Who epsiode. Also listen to the end of the podcast for a very special announcement concerning our friends at the Lipstick Aliens Podcast. As usual your comments and suggestions are always welcome.

    Cheers,
    Russel

    This week is my all movie edition of the podcast.

Then it is off to the movies with my friend Rob as we give our opinion on Hannibal Rising that opened this past weekend. We discuss what we learned from the movie, who the audience is for this film and a strange resemblance of a fellow movie goer to a famous serial killer.
