    Episode 10.04: Star Trek: Re-Unification

    In which Martin finds that a famous amazon might be taking tips from the God of thunder and meets an actor that is clearly not too old for this sh@#. While Mike says goodbye to another Star Trek legend and remembers when the Jumanji franchise was not box office gold. The original Ghostbusters almost make a comeback, Henry Cavill waits for an unrequited booty call, and the details of the Starburst International Film Festival are revealed, as Starburst Radio gets ready for its Christmas special...

    Episode 10.03: Chatting with Chop Top

    Episode 10.03: Chatting with Chop Top

    In which Mike despairs at the ever-expanding Christmas period and reveals why a joyless Bond is trapped in development hell. While Kris continues to deplore the sad state of UK cinemas and asks the big question, "When is a Purge not a Purge?". STARBURST Radio continues its 10th season with a pre-Christmas, pre-apocalypse show that explores early movie memories, David Tenant playing everyone and the return of the apes.

    [*Featuring a special interview with Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2/Devils Rejects star - Bill Mosely]

    Episode 10.02: The Kids from "It"

    Episode 10.02: The Kids from "It"

    In which Kris is not impressed with Rob Zombie’s ‘Poochie’ and introduces extraterrestrial television to the UK. Martin finally finds a movie to rave about then unfortunately also finds some footage to help with his adult-orientated 3D downtime. Mike is pleased that Netflix seems to be finally living up to its name and then gets triggered by the arrogance of the latest pseudo-sequel. Cheeseboards and pub lunches evolve, Midsommar bellends get outed, and both Jay and Bob are silent in dear old Blighty.

    [*Featuring a special interview with the original child stars from the 1990 It tv mini-series]

    Episode 10.01: Lost in the Sea of Netflix

    Episode 10.01: Lost in the Sea of Netflix

    In which Mike goes cockwise for a change and gets upset about the Dark Fate of the Terminator franchise. Kris announces the return of the Star Trek movies and strays into a discussion on the inappropriate behaviour of elderly wookies. Martin delivers an arguable ‘plethora’ of iconic horror interviews and gives an impromptu French language lesson. Things don’t look so full of wonder in 1984, and a billion-dollar clown looks certain to bag a sequel as STARBURST RADIO makes its time-shifted return.

    Episode 9.16: Tolkien Nonsense

    Episode 9.16: Tolkien Nonsense

    In which Martin turns Robert Redford into a raving political right-winger and kills off poor old Bobby Crush just when he wasn’t making a comeback. Mike has a full-blown meltdown with a Mr Robot "fan", and makes a false accusation of hoover theft. Kris fails to get a left-handed stormtrooper to open his beer and tries his best to announce the end of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In a show rife with dodgy de-ageing, nine noisy clocks and copious amounts of alcohol, Season 9 of STARBURST Radio finally comes to an end.

    [Warning: Mike totally loses the plot by the end of this episode]

    *Show first broadcast on Wed 30th July 2019

YESSS!

Funniest podcast out there. News and chaos while waiting for someone to trigger a Mike Royce meltdown. Imagine Mark and Lard running a sci-fi mag. Live show is good for music as well.

Stokesbons ,

Highlight of the week.

All the latest news with lots of banter. It's become the highlight of the week. Gets me through the night shift. Thanks lads (and Shauna)!

Greatest radio show in the universe!

This is a terrifically enjoyable podcast, as Mike and Chris, editors of Starburst Magazine, offer all the week's news and reviews in the sci-fi/fantasy/horror arenas...they are both articulate, passionate, and provocative with their off-the-cuff comments and in-depth opinions about film and tv, but not so insiderish that listeners feel left out. On the contrary, you feel like you're sitting with two longtime friends and co-workers just having a 2 hour-plus chat about sci-fi. I'm a relatively new listener but I already love it! It really is, as they say, the Greatest Radio Show in the Universe!
