Binary System Podcast

Formerly known as The Night Vale Recap, we now present The Binary System Podcast. Twins Kathryn Adams and Elizabeth Wallace bring you recaps of Welcome To Night Vale, and geek out about any shiny thing that distracts them.

Binary System Podcast #24 – WTNV Episode #81 “After 3327”

There’s a really interesting lecture going on at Night Vale’s Museum of Forbidden Technologies (which Elizabeth and Kathryn will now refer to as “MOFT”, because we’re easy to amuse.) Unfortunately the lecturer has removed his burlap sack and disabled the white noise generator, so museum patrons can actually hear the forbidden technologies he’s talking about. That’s…not good.

Binary System Podcast #23 – Return of The X-Files

It’s another week and still no Night Vale, but that’s okay because we’ve got X-Files! The twins break down the first episode of the new X-Files series, with all the conspiracies, explosions, and the complete lack of anybody making out with anybody else. But they get away from that for a bit to talk about Twin Peaks (because David Duchovny’s in that) and Top Gear (because Gillian Anderson’s in that) so really, they didn’t get very far away at all.

Binary System Podcast #21 – New year, out of control already

Without a Night Vale episode this week, we set off to do a short podcast about what we’ve got coming up for January. It quickly spiraled into a discussion about X-Files, book authors, spoiler warnings, fan fiction, Warehouse 13, Mission Impossible, Doctor Who, and Star Wars. Of course. (Kathryn hasn’t seen Force Awakens yet so we’re still SPOILER FREE.)

Binary System Podcast #20 – WTNV Episode 80: A New Sheriff In Town

Happy Christmas Eve, y’all! Don’t forget to say Merry Christmas to the government agents running 24-hour surveillance on your business and home. (But avoid saying their name out loud when you’re on the radio. That’s just rude. Jeez, Cecil, were you raised in a barn?)

Join the twins for the last podcast of the year as we recap Welcome To Night Vale Episode #80, where we get to know the new sheriff (he likes interpretive dance), find out more about the trial of the century (Hiram McDaniel’s Violet head will be the key witness against the other four), and hear the proposal to tag all Desert Bluffs visitors so we’ll know who in our community are the unwelcome ones. That’s…not good.

There’s also a little more discussion about Star Wars. Which comes as a surprise to no one.

Binary System Podcast #19 – All Star Wars, All the Time

To give everybody a break from all the hype surrounding a certain movie that comes out at midnight tonight, the twins will spend today’s podcast talking instead about Existentialism in literature, and the differences between Solipsism and subjective relativism.

(pause)

AHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Just kidding, we’re going to talk about Star Wars.

Binary System Podcast #18 – WTNV Episode 79: Lost in the Mail

This week the twins help celebrate Remembrance Day in Night Vale, which involves the usual parades, speeches, Emissaries from the Blood Space War, and fidelipac cartridges. Also there’s some Walking Dead, Doctor Who, and Star Wars in there. We mean in the podcast, not in Night Vale. Ooo, a Night Vale/Star Wars crossover. Get on that, fanartists!

Gallery: Carolina Renaissance Festival 2015

Ren Fests are technically Geek conventions too, especially when they have theme days like “Time Travelers Weekend”. Festival attendees of the Carolina Renaissance Festival on the weekend of November 14-15 were invited to attend dressed as their favorite time traveling character inspired by movies, TV, comic books, science fiction and/or fantasy. Kathryn was able to go (dressed rather conservatively as a Scottish Highland lass with Steampunk accessories), and staff photographer Nathan Adams along with guest photographer Randy Kalaf captured a sample of the fandoms who traveled back to the 16th century for the weekend.

Binary System Podcast #17 – WTNV Episode 78: Cooking Stuff

Winter Halloween is almost here, but first there’s the little matter of Thanksgiving. Cecil’s guest tonight is Tourniquet sou chef Earl Harlan, here to walk you through all the steps to cooking the perfect Thanksgiving turkey: Kill, Clean, Gut, Stuff, AND Cook. And he’s also got lots of advice for making your favorite dishes like cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes (believe it or not, you have to cook the potatoes first; that makes it easier to mash them up. With your feet.)
