PodKast with a Fanbarrassment!

Kasterborous Doctor Who podKastHave you ever been embarrassed by being a Doctor Who fan?

Is embarrassment a terminal plague upon your love of the series, or do you wear fandom on your sleeve, cosplaying at conventions and generally having a lot of fun with things?

This strange collision of approaches – dressing up vs self loathing – is the main topic of discussion in this week’s Kasterborous podKast (with a “K”) in which we talk about the differences between Brian Terranova and James McLean following the former’s regular cosplaying adventures and the latter’s inability to buy a copy of DWM without wondering what the WHSmith girl thinks of him.

We also spend a few moments discussing the sad passing of Richard Briers, and look out for our regular recommendations feature.

This week’s podKast also includes the name of our very lucky Terry Nation biography winner!

How do you listen? There are three ways to enjoy the podKast:

  1. Use the player in the top right of each page on Kasterborous.
  2. Listen with the “pop out” player above, which also allows you to download the podKast to your computer.
  3. Third, you can take advantage of the RSS feed to subscribe to the podKast for your media player, and also find us on iTunes!

Incidentally, if you are listening on iTunes, please take the time to leave a rating and review and help us to bring in new listeners to the podKast!

    Only time I was ever embarassed by Doctor Who fandom was in church once, when a very nice Brother from the monastery next door asked me what my ‘cross’ represented and I had to explain it wasn’t a cross, but a classic series TARDIS key pendant. When everyone had stopped laughing I pointed out that Doctor Who was cool these days and I didn’t need to be embarassed by it. But I was, just a bit!

    I don’t think I’ve ever felt embarrassed by being a Doctor Who fan, more frustrated at people who don’t have any idea about it, especially years ago when I was a kid and then a teen, in the days when it was still very much a cult show here in the states. I would dress up as the Doctor and most people didn’t have a clue who I was actually dressing up as. I was called a hobo once in my Fourth Doctor outfit, and a pimp in my Seventh.

      This at least explains how the Nitro 9 could be afforded… :O
