    SO THIS IS GOODBYE - 16 March 2020

    Hey Jumpgate fans. Andy here. There is no easy way to say this, so I'll just come out and say it: Jumpgate will be removed from our host Podomatic immediately. We will archive the complete show on the Jumpgate Google drive, for easy downloading later, while still keeping Season One up for anyone who hears of us. We had a lot of plans when the show wrapped, but unfortunately Life Itself had other ideas.

    Thank you all for being a part of a great era in our lives. And be good to each other... because if you don't, who will?

    THE SEASON ONE DRUNKCAST - INFECTION

    THE SEASON ONE DRUNKCAST - INFECTION

    WARNING! THIS EPISODE IS TOTALLY NOT SAFE FOR WORK!
    We aren't joking! Seriously!

    This completely useless and unnecessary episode of Jumpgate has Andy, Jinny and Nick letting their hair down (as the Earthers say) and getting their spirits up... specifically, Cap'n Morgan's Spiced Rum, Black Russians and Gin and Tonics! Thus inebriated, they are unleashed upon what is considered to be this season's worst episode: Infection!

    So, to one and all, we say Skol! Slainte! Prost! Cheers, mate! See you all in 2015!

    Jumpgate Episode 24 - Season One Wrap-Up

    We've reached the end of season one last week, and this week we kick back and get all nostalgic and retrospective about each character on the show and their arc for the season. Where did they start? How did they change? Where did they end up at the end, and why? And HOW, for the love of all the Centauri gods, can we possibly top ourselves next season!?

    A HUMONGOUS THANK YOU TO ALL OUR FANS! THANKS FOR GIVING US A CHANCE! SEE YOU ALL IN 2015!!!

Scoop Dave ,

A great and thoughtful podcast

Clever, funny, and well referenced. If you want to learn more about one of science fiction television and important franchises.

Off topic too much

Tried to stay with this but too many voices and too off topic too often. Thanks to Ginny for trying to get things on track but sadly much of the episodes just deteriorate into their own storytelling about their own personal universes. And random people are around who offer no views but take away from the focus. How many people does it take to do a podcast (certainly not three hosts and then two other random people chiming in with no significant contributions.) Stay focused on what you are supposed to be doing. Sadly, some gems of insight (mostly Andy) get lost among all the fodder.
