Ad hoc 9: Blade runner

Don, Matt, Guy, and Rene podcast about things you wouldn't believe. Androids dreaming of electric sheep. Blades running after replicants shown to be real men. All those… versions… so many cuts, like tears… in… rain.

Ad hoc is our entertainment and media podcast, and this episode is all about Ridley Scott's seminal work, Blade Runner. From production problems to casting curiosities to effects, we put Blade Runner through the VK test! So what motifs did we pick up? Which themes resonated the most? And most importantly, who's a replicant?! Find out!

Ad hoc 5: Dune

Guy English, Don Melton, and Rene Ritchie talk about Dune, the classic Frank Herbert novel and the crazy David Lynch film. It all goes spice-wacky quickly, however, and no 1980s sci-fi is left unharmed. Yes, this podcast is a killing word.

Ad hoc 5: Man of Steel

Ad hoc is our media and miscellaneous podcast where we get a bunch of tech geeks together, put them in front of mics, hit record, and then chat with them about movies, TV shows, video games, comics and books, and other popular, nerdy things. In this episode, Guy English, Georgia, Dave Wiskus, and Rene Ritchie pretty much do to Man of Steel what the Man of Steel did to Metropolis in Chris Nolan, David Goyer, and Zack Snyder's reboot of the Superman franchise.

Ad hoc 4: Star Trek Into Darkness

Take a bunch of tech geeks who also happen to enjoy scattering their atoms across the galaxy, put them in front of mics, hit the record button, and what do you get? Another impromptu episode of the Federation's favorite podcast, that's what.

Join Guy English, Georgia, Clayton Morris, Derek Kessler, Bryan Bishop, and Rene to talk Star Trek Into Darkness. From plot holes to set pieces, lens flares to bikini flashes, Kirk to Klingons, we're nerding out over, and nitpicking, JJ Abrams' second take at Trek.

Ad hoc 1: The Future of Star Wars

Earlier this week, Disney announced they were buying Lucasfilm, so we gathered Guy English, Matt Drance, Dave Wiskus, Dan Moren, and Rene Ritchie together for an emergency broadcast. Directors, cast, crew, stories, traps, heroes' journeys, timelines, themes, theatrics, dramatics, and dreams, no topic is safe when a bunch of tech nerds get their Force talk on.
