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 #51 – WTNV #93 “Big Sister”

Binary System Podcast #51 – WTNV #93 “Big Sister”

It’s an “On The Road” edition of BSP as Kathryn’s recording from the wilds of Florida, land of…heat and…rain and…alligators? Yes okay she’s sipping a glass of red wine from our parents’ place, but still. We go through hardships for you.

Anyway, we recap a Welcome to Night Vale episode full of dragons and stolen cars, and then talk about the Serial podcast, Wooden Overcoats, the final episode of Torchwood, and the latest update on our Doctor Who cosplay for New York Comic Con!

Binary System #50 – Fifty Episodes. Still no plan.

Binary System #50 – Fifty Episodes. Still no plan.

It’s the 50th episode of Binary System Podcast! What do we have planned? Absolutely nothing! Seriously, are you surprised? After 50 episodes if you think we’ve got a game plan we’d like to talk to you about this section of prime real estate in the Everglades, lovely spot, we’ll just need your credit card number…

Seriously though, we tackled this episode with all the randomness we could put behind it, and jumped from Penny Dreadful to Stranger Things, Mr. Robot, the Foreigner Series, Game of Thrones, the Craft Sequence, Neil Gaiman, Chuck Palahniuk, prom night, Civil War 2, time travel, the Thessaliad, Sins of the Wreckers, Transformers that break, and being surprisingly girly about it. Don’t judge.

Binary System Podcast #48 – WTNV #92 “If He Had Lived”

This week’s episode of Welcome to Night Vale was so wonderfully weird, such a jewel of strangeness, we’re just going to dance around the details in the recap because we really really want you to listen to it yourself. Instead we discuss the additional weirdness that is The Last Days of New Paris, and Saga, the beautiful art of Civil War 2, and how last month’s issue of Transformers More Than Meets The Eye ripped our hearts out. Seriously, IDW, how could you? (We don’t want you to stop, but seriously. Ow.)

Binary System Podcast #47 – WTNV #91 “The 12:37″

If all the news stories about travel delays are getting you down, you’ll be happy to hear that the 12:37 to Night Vale has arrived right on time! Well, one hundred years late. On tracks that don’t exist anymore. At a station that was torn down and turned into a baseball field decades ago. Oh, and no one who goes inside has been heard from since. All aboard!

Listen in as the twins dissect the latest episode of Welcome To Night Vale, then ramble some rambles about Stranger Things, Suicide Squad, Zootopia, Batman v Superman, Inception, Niagara Falls, fan art, and maybe just a little bit of Pokemon Go, and how to pretend that’s not what you’re doing with your phone.

Binary System Podcast #46 – SDCC 2016 Debrief

Elizabeth’s back from San Diego Comic-Con and Kathryn’s had a cold kicking her butt for a week so we’re both brain dead and rambling. That’s the kind of podcast we like best. (No one who knows us is surprised.)

Listen in as we debrief on Nerdigras (Nerd Mecca if you will) and spaz out about Civil War II, Dave McKean, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Doctor Strange, Moffat, and more.

Binary System Podcast #45 – Alice Isn’t Dead #10 “Thistle”

Binary System Podcast #45 – Alice Isn’t Dead #10 “Thistle”

It’s the season finale of “Alice Isn’t Dead” and as much as we liked it, what we REALLY liked was the Disparition song they used at the end (we put a clip at the end of this podcast, it has a hammer dulcimer, we love it.)

After that we had to address this whole ridiculous Pokemon Go thing. Yes, we both created accounts. Don’t judge. Also if you’re going to cheat while incubating your eggs, please don’t put your phone in bad places. Just saying.

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!!)
