Bryan is a frequent guest on www.epicfilmguys.podbean.com and he co-hosts their sister show called B-Sides.

Gallifrey One 2017

Rob Shade, the man who designed the logo for Buzz Burbank News and Comment (another great show on the RELM Network), returns to fill in for Tony so he can tell George about his adventures at Gallifrey One, the 29th Annual North American Doctor Who celebration. His awkward encounters with Naoko Mori are worth the price of admission but he doesn't stop there as he shares stories about panels, meeting John Hurt last year, and schools George on Blake's 7 and The Thick Of it. It's a lot of British pop culture thrown into one episode. Plus, George checks out the Alex Ross exhibit at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. And, of course, Rob rants.
