James Naughton

Host, 2005-2011

James Naughton has been a sci-fi fan for as long as he can remember. Growing up in the UK, he spent most of his early years cowering behind the sofa to the Daleks.

Always interested in technology, in early 2005 he started his own podcast, about everything and anything. This lead to involvement in various other shows, such as Rough, Ready and Raw and Doctor Who: Podshock. These days though, he prefers to invest his time podcasting solely about science fiction.

Louis Trapani

Louis Trapani founded the Gallifreyan Embassy (GE) in June of 1985 to serve the growing fandom centered around Doctor Who and other British science fiction during the mid-80s in the US. Originally a local organization with local meetings, today it is international, serving the global community.

In 1989, Louis graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree from the School of Visual Arts in New York where he majored in the media arts department.

Ken Deep

Ken Deep comes to podcasting from the traditional broadcasting medium. Having honed his skills in professional radio and television broadcasting, he applies the same vigor and enthusiasm to our podcasts.

He, along with Louis Trapani were there from the beginning of the Gallifreyan Embassy and helped to bring it to where it is today. His extensive knowledge of science fiction is evident in all our shows.

Ken continues his work in traditional broadcasting whilst also being one of the pioneers in new media. His experience interviewing people from a wide range of backgrounds is vast. From his work hosting a national show on Air America to being a voice-over talent, Ken has mastered it all and brings that experience to our podcasts.

About Doctor Who: Podshock sticky icon

Doctor Who: Podshock is the longest running Doctor Who podcast (internet radio show) presented by the fan run Gallifreyan Embassy (est. 1985) and is the official podcast of the Gallifrey One conventions. We feature interviews with the Doctor Who cast and crew along with the latest Doctor Who news, reviews, interviews, commentaries and discussions from an international perspective.

Hosted by Louis Trapani, Ken Deep, and Ian Bisset in the US, and Dave Cooper in the UK, and Graeme Sheridan in Germany with segments and contributions from regular corespondents around the world.

The award winning Doctor Who podcast; Doctor Who: Podshock began in 2005 on the 20th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy. In that time, it quickly grew into one of the most popular Doctor Who podcasts and continues to be to this day.

Use Our Podcast to Get Your Message Out

Doctor Who and science fiction in general casts a wide net in its followers. While our podcasts (i.e. Doctor Who: Podshock) reaches everyone from 8 to 80, a majority of them reach those of the age of 21 to 44. Half of them are single with a disposable income.

Listeners range from ‘hardcore’ fans, to casual fans as well as people who have just obtained an interest in the genre. Most of them will consume other related media and collect associated memorabilia.

Due of the nature of podcasts, people can discover shows we produced years ago today. Some are listened to over and over again. They are available by various means including, Apple iTunes, website downloads, RSS feeds, various podcast networks, internet radio, etc.

Gallifreyan Embassy Website Regenerated

Once again, the Gallifreyan Embassy website has regenerated. This is sort of the Jon Pertwee version of our site (give or take), as it is essentially our third incarnation of the website.

This new site is still being developed while our previous site remains operating and functioning as it had been since the last regeneration (2005). Eventually, we will migrate here as our default site while keeping the previous site as-is for archival purposes.

NOTE: If you have an existing account from our previous site, it will need to be re-created here.

While content is being moved to and being developed here on our website 3.0, please access our previous site for the past four years worth content.
