Binary System Podcast #101 – WTNV #116: Council Member Flynn Part 3

Binary System Podcast is back on schedule this week (meaning we’re a week behind with our recaps. “Running behind” is the new “on schedule,” all the cool kids say it’s so.) Listen in as we discuss crime and finances in Night Vale, and wonder what exactly are the rules for Naked Uno. (Probably the same rules as Naked Anything Else.)

Also tune in next week for a spoileriffic podcast as we talk all about Wonder Woman and Blade Runner 2049!

Binary System Podcast #100 – One hundred episodes of randomness

Binary System Podcast #100 – One hundred episodes of randomness

Binary System Podcast is celebrating 100 episodes! Well, not counting 20 or so recorded before we started calling them Binary System, plus some bonus episodes here and there, the odd fan art collections…you know what, it’s not important, happy one hundredth episode!

The plan was to record a retrospective of our favorite moments of the last one hundred (..or so..) episodes, starting with our favorite Night Vale episodes, our favorite Weather music, and our favorite fangirl “eeeeeee” episodes like Arrival, Sherlock, and Star Wars (plus a few “arrgh!” moments with Walking Dead.) But of course there were tangents into Blade Runner 2049, Wonder Woman, Friday the 13th the Series, American Horror Story, Saga, and Transformers, because of COURSE Transformers. 

Thanks for listening in! And if you’ve got a plan for what our next 100 episodes could be about…you’re more organized than we are!

Binary System Podcast #95: WTNV #113 “Niecelet” and many tangents

It’s a nice rambly podcast this week, first with a Night Vale recap where Cecil talks about eclipses you can’t see from this planet and then gets stuck in his own recording booth. And then Elizabeth drags the podcast off on not one but TWO tangents, once about mythical two-headed snakes and another about alien tourists on Earth. And finally a segue into the Defenders, John Barrowman’s awesome DragonCon cosplay, sand castles, Lady Killer, Motor Girl, conventions, Cabin in the Woods, and “My Dad Wrote a Porno.

Binary System Podcast #94: Eclipse recap and WTNV #112 “Citizen Spotlight”

First off this week is a recap of The Great American Eclipse because SCIENCE. Then we’re looking at Night Vale’s first Citizen Spotlight, featuring a character who is entirely fictional. More so than usual we mean.

After that we look at the first episode of Marvel’s Defenders and talk about what we like (“WRONG NUMBER”) and what we hate (shut UP, Danny!)

Binary System Podcast #92: WTNV #111 – Summer 2017, Night Vale, USA

This week’s episode of Night Vale was less of an episode and more of a little present for everybody who’s been a fan of the show since the beginning. We got the Dog Park, Dana Cardinal, Khoshekh, the lights above the Arby’s, Carlos’ perfect hair, and angels. And lightbulbs. (sniff) (We’re not crying you’re crying.)

After that there was just time enough to talk Twin Peaks, Agatha Heterodyne Girl Genius, Dylan Marron’s new podcast, and the final issue of Transformers Till All Are One.

Binary System Podcast #89 – Night Vale Bonus tracks, and San Diego Comic-Con!

Binary System Podcast #89 –  Night Vale Bonus tracks, and San Diego Comic-Con!

This week Welcome to Night Vale demonstrated once again that they don’t understand the meaning of the word “hiatus” because they gave us both an excerpt from the upcoming Night Vale book It Devours, AND a teaser for the new “Conversations With People Who Hate Me” podcast. This brings up one of the few times that the twins come down on opposite sides of an issue, because Kathryn likes to read the comment threads of news articles to find the rare moments of intelligent discussion and well-worded viewpoints, and Elizabeth doesn’t because she thinks they’re cesspits of humanity.

After that they nerd out about Saga for a bit (the cover to issue 44 is all kinds of neat) and then spell out their plans for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con! They’ll both be there, along with Official Binary System Photographer Captain Slack (otherwise known as Kathryn’s husband Nathan) to do some interviews, take a pile of photos, and report back on Nerd Mecca. Keep an eye out here and on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram!

Binary System Podcast #79 – WTNV Episode 106 “Filings”

In Night Vale it’s illegal to acknowledge the existence of angels, so they’re out to change that, and you know what that means: PAPERWORK. Also minor riots, dragons, and rifts in the space-time continuum. It IS Night Vale we’re talking about.

After the twins recap the episode they also get into Mystery Science Theater 3000: the Return (and how delightfully creepy Felicia Day can be), the new Beauty and the Beast movie (and how it’s okay if you make a movie that’s only for Disney Fans because that’s a hell of an army to contend with), the new Iron Fist (about which we’ll say very little) and the Hugo Award nominations (about some of which we’ll say nothing at all…)
