    Who's Raven On | The Church On Ruby Road

    Who's Raven On | The Church On Ruby Road

    Singing! Goblins! Singing Goblins! New Doctor! New Companion!

    It's all happening in Ncuti Gatwa's first full episode as The Doctor in The Church on Ruby Road. John and Tom from the Best Pick Pod join Natalie to recap this Christmas episode, complete with babe left outside a church on Christmas Eve, goblin karaoke, mysterious set-ups for future episodes, and Davina McCall (who is a big deal in the UK, apparently).

    Who's Raven On | The Giggle

    Who's Raven On | The Giggle

    The trio of Doctor Who 60th Anniversary Specials concludes with "The Giggle", in which Neil Patrick Harris has the time of his life with a dance number to a song very close to Natalie's heart.

    Once again she's joined by Tom and John from the Best Pick Pod to deep dive into David Tennant's last(?) outing as the Fourteenth Doctor and (spoiler!) Ncuti Gatwa's first appearance as the Fifteenth.

    Thanks for listening to these podcast specials, which of course have been our first since losing the lion-hearted, Doctor Who-loving genius that was Stuart Layt. We know he would have loved them.

    Who's Raven On | Wild Blue Yonder

    Who's Raven On | Wild Blue Yonder

    It's the second 60th anniversary special, and Natalie is joined once more by Tom and John from the Best Pick Pod to discuss "Wild Blue Yonder". It turns out you can have a slightly-too-cutesy-and-quite-naff pre-credit sequence and then switch things up for a fabulously creepy episode set at the edge of the universe.

    Enjoy!

    Who's Raven On | The Star Beast

    Who's Raven On | The Star Beast

    Kittens! This is WEIRD. It is WEIRD to podcast without the genius that is Stuart Layt. WEIRD, and NOT RIGHT. Sadly Stu passed away three months ago, and boy am I still mad about it. Particularly since he LOVED Doctor Who with his whole soul. But I am so glad that Tom Salinsky from the brilliant Best Pick Pod reached out about joining forces to recap the David Tennant 60th anniversary specials.

    And so here it is - Who's Raven On with Tom and John from the Best Pick Pod, chatting all things Star Beast. This same podcast will appear on their feed (albeit with a different top and tail!). I hope you enjoy it. Much love, wonderful listeners.

    Raven On Stu

    Hello, my friends. I'm sorry it's been so long. I've recorded a little chat just about Stu, and what it's been like without him, and what might happen next with the podcast. I hope you can take a listen if/when you're up to it. I hope you are all well and happy, wonderful listeners. Much love. xoxo MoK.

    Revvin On | Fast and Furious 6

    Revvin On | Fast and Furious 6

    Lookout! Natalie's got herself a soundboard and isn't afraid to use it. Will this be enough to alienate Stu? Probably not, because he loves these dang movies too much.

    When Agent Hobbes needs to take down a car-based baddie, of course he turns to Dom's car-based superhero crew. They hit London to make those stupid Brits look even stupider, and track down the badass Owen Shaw. There's a chase through the Monopoly board, Rita Ora in hot pants, and Letty's back from the dead. Enjoy!

Such a journey!

I first heard Natalie as a guest on a recap episode of ‘and just like that’ with The Guilty Feminist. She was so engaging and so I looked for some more of her work. This podcast is an absolute delight - they just have so much fun! I came to this podcast about 6 months ago and have worked my way through all the old GoT episodes and am up to date with Robin Hood (excellent episode on the Errol Flynn one!) and Batman. Stuart Layt is an revelation, and he has one of the best laughs I’ve heard on a podcast. The way he exclaims ‘Jesus!’ when surprised or shocked just does something to me. Hearing Tom Salinsky guest on some of the Bond episodes then led me to Natalie’s episode on the ‘Best Pick’ podcast, on the movie Titanic, which I think is one of the best episodes of that podcast. It’s been quite the journey and now I eagerly await new episodes of both!

Raven hilarious (I’ll think of a better pun later)

One of my favourite podcasts to listen to. Natalie and Stu are here for your pop culture needs, and laughs all the way.

Raven On and On and On...

It's funny. It's informative. It's Natalie, the Mother of Kittens, and Disco Stu, settling down to chew the fat each week... with the added bonus of Natalie occasionally going extremely giggly over abs...
