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 #44 – Within the Wires #1

Binary System Podcast #44 – Within the Wires #1

Welcome to Night Vale is on hiatus for the whole month. And since none of the Night Vale people know what the word “hiatus” means, they gave us a whole new series to recap. This week the twins listened to the first episode of Within the Wires, which seems to be a guided meditation for a mental institution. In the future? Hard to say. Apparently we were turned into a bug.

Then we went over the finer points of Doctor Who costumes, Pacific Rim, Battle Angel, Penny Dreadful, and that scary subsection of the internet that believes Hiddleston and Cumberbatch are victims of a giant conspiracy to put them in fake relationships to…make them..more popular? Or something? No, don’t explain, we don’t want to know…

Binary System Podcast #43 – An Alice Isn’t Dead Twofer

Because we’re two episodes behind in our recap, this week you get two recaps for the price of one. And since each episode of Alice Isn’t Dead was heavy on atmosphere and light on plot, that takes about 15 minutes. We fill up the other 13 minutes with Luther, Downton Abbey, Breaking Bad, designer toys, and the scary (but strangely familiar) (if you’ve ever tried to get SDCC tickets) process of buying New York Comic-Con tickets. (Spoilers: we’re going to NYCC! Woo!!)

Binary System Podcast #42 – The answer to…wait, what was the question?

No recap this week because…well, because excuses, but Night Vale is on hiatus and Time Warner’s dropping half of North Carolina into an internet black hole and California is still (last time we checked) three hours behind the East Coast, so scheduling and technical difficulties and are you still reading this? We love you. Have 15 minutes of random ramblings.

Binary System Podcast #41 – WTNV #90 “Who’s A Good Boy, Part 2″

The chaos in Night Vale comes to a crashing finale as the whole town joins in the battle. In the end, what happened? We can’t tell you. Seriously. We have no idea. Lots of opinions though.

After the recap we were all over the place, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Civil War II, Saga, Cowboy Bebop, Lucifer, the Fall, and any other distraction we could fit in a half hour.

Binary System Podcast #40 – WTNV #89 “Who’s A Good Boy, Part 1″

“Who’s a good boy?” Not really a question that you’d expect to strike fear in the hearts of podcast listeners. But it does.

Once we shook off the Welcome To Night Vale heebie-jeebies we talked about Daredevil and The Fall, and then about the final seasons of Hannibal and True Blood, which we haven’t watched yet because some streaming platforms are biding their time. And by biding their time we mean stingy and by some we mean Amazon Prime.

Binary System Podcast #39 – Alice Isn’t Dead #6 “Let’s Break Into A Police Station”

This week we recap the latest episode of Alice Isn’t Dead and ask the question: if you’re not a criminal mastermind, how do you break into a police station? (Answer: loudly. Before you can change your mind.)

We also discuss how season two of Hannibal is just amazing, and how season six of True Blood is just godawful.

Binary System Podcast #37 – WTNV #88 “Things Fall Apart”

The title to this week’s Welcome To Night Vale episode sums it up: things in Night Vale are falling apart. It’s bad enough that the gas, electricity, and water is out, but now the surveillance cameras aren’t working? Everybody panic! (Quietly. Where the Sheriff’s Secret Police can’t hear you.)

(Kidding. They can always hear you.)

Binary System Podcast #36 – Alice Isn’t Dead Chapter 5: Signs and Wonders

On this week’s episode we’re discussing Captain America: Civil War (don’t worry, no spoilers,) Daredevil (nope, no spoilers here either,) High-Rise (still no spoilers) and recap the latest episode of Alice Isn’t Dead. (Lots of spoilers there.)

Along the way we get into the finer points of when you should and should not go back to see if that’s really a dead body over there…
