    Who's Raven On | Nikola Tesla's NoT

    Who's Raven On | Nikola Tesla's NoT

    Saddle up for another deep dive, as Nat & Stu connect via Skype to chat all things Nikola Tesla. Turns out this episode was... fun? A nice change from last week. Electricity and scavenging scorpion creatures make for a good time.

    Greg from the "Smart Enough to Know Better" podcast also weighs in; plus there's a bunch of other pop culture news, including the return of Captain Picard and the somewhat questionable first images from "The Watch", the adaptation of Terry Pratchett's classic Discworld novels.

    Tune in and drop out, y'all!

    Who's Raven On | Orphan 55

    Who's Raven On | Orphan 55

    Natalie and Stu catch up via Skype to talk about the general disappointment that was "Orphan 55", the third episode of this season of Doctor Who.

    Disappointment is one word - "giant unholy and rather preachy mess" are several more. Greg from the Smart Enough to Know Better podcast even chimes in to express his A n G e R Y feelings about this relaxing-spa-trip-gone-wrong-oh-wait-it-turns-out-it-was-man sermon of a show.

    Apologies for the tardiness ("Tardis-ness"?!?) of this upload - Natalie has been in Perth getting a show up and running. Check out www.actreact.com.au if you want to see what she's up to!

    Who's Raven On | Spyfall 2

    Who's Raven On | Spyfall 2

    Greetings! Nat & Stu were able to do a Skype hook-up to discuss the second part of the Doctor Who adventure "Spyfall". They discuss the rollicking adventurous nature of it, complete with historical badass ladies and just plain bad old Nazis.

    They also check in with Dan and get his written suggestions on the episode after his tirade last time. And they put the call out for fans to "call in" (or, you know, leave a comment), on what you reckon "The Timeless Child" is, was, means, represents, etc.

    Enjoy!

    Who's Raven On | Spyfall 1

    Who's Raven On | Spyfall 1

    Welcome to the first podcast of 2020!

    Another year of what Natalie calls "friendship" but what Stu might call "getting press-ganged into indulging more of Nat's rambling opinions on things she is mostly unqualified to comment upon"!

    This time, Dan from the "Smart Enough to Know Better" podcast joins Nat & Stu to discuss "Spyfall Part 1", the New Year's Day episode of Doctor Who, which turns out to be the start of the latest season. Lots of chats about spies, Stephen Fry, and that "O" guy.

    Enjoy!

    Raven On Garbage

    Raven On Garbage

    It's the last Raven On podcast for 2019!

    Natalie & Stu are joined by Greg from the "Smart Enough to Know Better" podcast to recap the final episode of season one of "His Dark Materials", before launching into a discussion of all things "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker".

    As an aside, the title "Garbage" is inspired by Natalie's Dad, who accidentally calls in to the podcast just moments after it gets underway. According to Marcus, most everything is garbage, especially that whole Star Wars business.

    Thanks to all listeners who've stuck with us during our final Game of Thrones podcasts this year (including our live audiences!), and for going with us as we experiment with other shows. See you in 2020!

    Raven On Subatomic Skidmarks

    Raven On Subatomic Skidmarks

    Nat attempts to surprise Stu with a belated birthday cake, and accidentally creates the new broadcast format "cake-casting". The subsequent sugar rush allows the chatty pair to rave on for nearly three hours, but that's OK, because at least they're not out on the streets causing trouble.

    Chill out and enjoy many thoughts on the penultimate episode of His Dark Materials, including the BEAR FIGHT, before a deep velvety dive into the final episode of Watchmen, including eggs, dong placement, fancy pants and even trivial things like the nature of time and contextual links in pop culture. Or something.

    Enjoy!

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...

Such a fun podcast

I wish I'd listened to these when they first came out, after all, I was obsessed with Nat's recaps! Have binged S5 and part way through S6 in the month before S7 drops, so hopefully I'll be up to date and we'll and truly recapped by the time it starts!
I'm loving how many predictions you got right and I'm especially loving Stu's pure hatred of that turd Ollie.

Finally something to celebrate in 2017!

Thank the (old) Gods that the 'Raven On' podcast is back to explain my favourite show to me. This brilliant podcast gives me an excuse to re-watch each episode a few days after first viewing and also provide a fabulous service with the wonderfully apt (and funny) nick-names Natalie & Stuart give to characters that I otherwise can never quite keep clearly identified in my mind.
