Cosmic Potato #93: Classic Movie Series III

This week we continue our trek through classic movies. But as we looked through the IMDB list of the 100 greatest movies of all time we realized that there was very little sci-fi on it. So, we took a break and watched three revered examples of the genre. The Day The Earth Stood Still, The War of the Worlds, and Forbidden Planet.

Cosmic Potato Bonus Episode: Virginia Hey


This week we have a bonus treat for you. If you don't know the name Virginia Hey then I guarantee that you've seen her. She played Zhaan in Farscape. She was also The Warrior Woman in Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior and she played Rubavitch in The Living Daylights. On top of that she's been in tons of things all over Australia, Europe, and the US.

Next weekend she'll be appearing here in my hometown of Birmingham, Alabama at Magic City Con. She was nice enough to come on the show and talk with me about the convention as well as her career. It was a wonderful conversation and she was a very sweet person. I hope that you enjoy listening to our talk as much as I enjoyed taking part in it.

If you'd like to find out more about Ms. Hey's career and the things that she's doing now you can visit her website at virginiahey.com.

If you're in the south next week you should come out to Magic City Con. We have a great time there every year. It'll be filled with special guests as well as presenters and podcasters having discussion panels and playing games. I'll be there playing Sci Fi Jeopardy like I do every year. I'll also be playing Um...Actually and I'll have a panel about Star Trek: Discovery. And I'm teaming up with our friend Joe Crowe to have a screening of the Star Wars Holiday Special which we'll be lampooning in MST3K fashion. If you'd like to find out more about the convention you can visit their website at magiccitycon.com.

And remember, this is a bonus episode. This week's regular episode is coming out as well so be sure to download that as well.

The Prime Direction #21: Virginia Pickel

Many of you know that I co-host a podcast over on the Simply Syndicated network known as Simply Syndicated's Discovery Aftershow. Last season we tried our best to find some female representation to join our conversation. When season 2 comes around you'll be hearing this month's guest as our regular co-host.

Virginia Pickel hails from the great state of Texas. Growing up in rural America she didn't get exposed to most of what Star Trek has to offer until fairly recently. It is interesting to find out how her fandom has unfolded over time. And the fact that she is still experiencing a lot of it for the first time was fun to talk about.

Virginia hosts a blog at tocasuallygo.com. She attempts to offer explanations for a lot of the things in Star Trek, such as alien races and technology, that will be easy to understand for newcomers. I recommend it. Go check it out!

If you'd like to be a guest on The Prime Direction and share with me the story of your Star Trek fandom, all you have to do is send me an email at mail@cosmicpotato.com. You can also send me a voice mail or a text message at (205) 642-8380. I'll get in touch with you and we'll set up a time for you to tell me your story.

This show can be heard right here on the site. You can also find it on iTunes, Stitcher, and Podcast Addict on the Android store. Go to one of those places and subscribe to the show so that you'll get a notification every time I post a new episode. Make sure you leave me a 5 star review and a rating so that more people will be able to find the podcast.

Thank you for participating in this project and listening to The Prime Direction!
