    Star Travel and Hand-Wavium

    Warp drives. Wormholes. Infinite Improbability. How do you get your characters from one place to another over interstellar distances? The DRS Crew warms up their dilithium crystals, opens a space/time anomaly, and summons an infinite number of monkeys who want to show us their Shakespeare plays.

    Maps, Wikis, And Renderings -- what do you actually need?

You’ve got to like Squirrels and Tangents

Dead Robot’s Society is my go to writer’s podcast for pearls of wisdom and some seriously funny entertainment. With Terry’s squirrel brain and Paul’s tangents it keeps my attention from beginning to end. If you don’t like unprofessional humor, swear words and the occasional jabs at each other this isn’t the podcast for you. Find a more clean cut professional podcast. But for me this is absolutely awesome. When I am up at 5:30 in the morning getting ready for work these two goofballs help put me in a good mode and get me ready to face the day. Hands down entertaining and informative.

OoiiiiiiioO (Joe) ,

Pretty good stuff!

Great show guys. I Found you a few weeks ago, and have been listening to back episodes as I can. I'm an aspiring writer, especially writing Fantasy RPG content.

I just finished your epsidoe 520 - Find the Topic. You discussed that Star Trek is not military science fiction. Based off of your stand point, I do agree that it is a Science Fiction with some Military Science Fiction elements. The Dominion War in Deep Space Nine for example. In DS9 it felt more military sci fi than the rest of the series did.
What are your thoughts about Babylon 5 being another form of Military Science Fiction?

Good luck with NaNoWriMo! looking forward to hearing more episodes.

Too much chit chat

Seriously this podcast has some interesting titles for the podcasts, things I’d actually like to hear and learn about, but this whole thing could be reduced to a good 20min per podcast instead of this bloated nonsense full of chitchat and unnecessary insults hurled at each other.
