Radio Free Skaro is possibly the most popular, most prolific and charmingly irreverent (but never irrelevant) Doctor Who podcast around. Since August 2006, hosts Warren (in Vancouver, BC) and Steven (in Edmonton, AB) have provided listeners with their brand of amusing Doctor Who praise and punishment. A year later, Chris (also in Edmonton, AB) was added to the team, and The Three Who Rule were born.
Recommended by Doctor Who Magazine, Radio Free Skaro provides an entertaining and diverting listen for the diehard or casual Doctor Who fan. New episodes usually appear on Sundays, following a loose magazine format of the three hosts discussing the news and events of the past week in the worlds of Doctor Who, Torchwood, and the Sarah Jane Adventures. They have also recorded special commentary podcasts for classic series and new series episodes of Doctor Who along with interviews of some of the brightest of the Doctor Who luminaries. Radio Free Skaro is also the official podcast of Gallifrey One, the world’s largest and longest-running annual Doctor Who convention.

Radio Free Skaro – 2021 Advent Calendar, Day 24
This holiday season, Radio Free Skaro is presenting a Fluid Links Advent Calendar! Every day from December 1 until December 24, we’ll discuss one topic from our list provided by you, the listeners. Today: Day 24.
One of the best.
Wish I were at Galley right now but since this is the world we live in, I’ll leave a 5-star review for these guys instead. Love your podcast, love your vibe and banter (“banter” said in a PCap voice). I’ve been a DW fan since the early ’80s, and you guys keep me going through these televised-Who droughts. Keep up the great work!
(originally wrote this in February but it never got posted, hence the anachronistic first sentence)
Simply must listen
Love the show. One of the best on doctor who.
