    Rob and Dave Unplugged 2

    Rob and Dave Unplugged 2

    January 5, 2022 saw Rob and Dave catch up, in person, in Sydney. Being based in different Australian cities - and the pandemic - it was only the third time they've met in person since first meeting on January 27, 2018.


    That first meeting resulted in a lo-fi, hotel room recording which got called, 'Rob and Dave Unplugged' where the guys discussed fandom in Australia, and their roles in it (and out of it), during the 80s, 90s, 00s, and beyond.


    For this latest meeting, the lo-fi, hotel room recording vibe is back. Strap in for, 'Rob and Dave Unplugged 2' where, this time around, the guys take 19 questions and a comment, from their social media followers, and answer them all.


    The questions take the chat over the place, from hypothetical Doctor Who scenarios, to our favourite Australian bands, to questions about the podcast itself. A veritable cornucopia if you have an hour, or so, to spend with the guys.

    Primary Sources – December 1998

    Primary Sources – December 1998

    Welcome to the 15th episode of a short podcast we’re dropping on the feed every month in between our regular monthly shows.


    In today’s podcast, Rob sits down with Dylan Rees to talk about the letters to DWM in December of 1998. You might know Dylan as the author of 'Downtime: The Lost Years of Dr Who' or the host of the podcast 'Dr Who: Too Hot For TV' which Rob listens to avidly.


    This is Doctor Who without a safety net. The conversations could go anywhere the guest wants them to go.


    This is Primary Sources.

Time traveller

Dear Rob and Dave,
About 5 ish years ago, Cameron Reilly was introducing Ray Harris Jnr to the magic of Doctor Who and mentioned your podcast. I downloaded it and have had it in my list since.
However, because I have many podcasts in my list, the rotation takes me about 18 months to get through. I have just spent 2 weeks, 2 hours a day in your company. I travelled backwards in time to a land before COVID-19, when Dave could casually mention travelling to the US as though that is a thing. I travelled the podcast timeline through lockdowns and personal losses, through Big Finish and New Adventures. I have arrived at the end just before the best of the 1980s, the era when my brother and I videoed every daily episode so we could watch them all on Friday afternoon using a technique the kiddies now call binge watching.
I met Davo in Myer, Brisbane and he signed a randomly selected Doctor Who Target novel. He was the incumbent at the time and wearing the costume. I am sure the 80s adventures will be excellent. I guess I will hear about them in 18 months!

Disagreeing Politely

These guys have opinions and they're not afraid to share them. However, that being said, they demonstrate that in this day and age of "you're either with me or you're my enemy", fellow fans can disagree and still be friends.

Great Doctor Who pod

Well worth a listen. Rob and Dave continue to provide new angles and insights on a venerable show. Whether it’s the monthly show, hot takes on the new series or even the occasional trip to a different show entirely they maintain a positive and fond spin to a show, whilst never paper over the flaws in the papier-mâché monster. Suitable for the crusty old fan, or the 12 year old obsessive. Keep it up guys.
