George and Tony Entertainment Show

Help Wanted

It has become a bit of a habit to have Rob Shade fill in for Tony while he is on hiatus. Last heard on episode 161 (check our archives on iTunes and www.georgeandtony.libsyn.com), Rob returns to talk about the perils and monotony of job hunting and tells a tale of success we are confident you will enjoy. Rob and George turn sour grapes into a lovely, aromatic podcast wine, vintage 2017.

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.
