      This section is looking for currently in production, interesting
      podcasts related to Doctor Who. If you think your webcast/podcast (or
      somebody else's) belongs in this section, e-mail me. My audio device
      used for most of this programming is trying to turn itself into an
      expensive paperweight, which is slowing down efforts in
      listening/listing any other relevant podcasts. Touch screens don't
      work well enough - bring back buttons.

      done in podcast format. Hosted by Louis Trapani, Ken Deep, and James
      Naughton, with frequent contributions/co-hosting by Dave AC, Mike
      Doran, and a cast of many. There is a feed for studio shows and for
      life shows.
      2) Also home to the Sonic Newsdriver, Louis Trapani's weekly rundown
      of new Doctor Who news.
      3) Also home to the Hitch-hiker's Guide To British Sci-Fi, a podcast
      covering a mix of shows, including Doctor Who.
      Current episodes:
      Episode 137 and 138 - Review of The Next Doctor, both parts. Cleaned
      up and annotated version of the most recent live podcast episode,
      where the hosts and audience had a live roundtable about the
      Christmas 2008 episode. At this point (December 28, 2008) it was not
      known that the BBC would announce the new Doctor in just a few days.

      SciFi Overdrive http://www.scifioverdrive.com
      Joey Reynolds guested on the January 9/12 edition of Overdrive,
      discussing the announcment of Matt Smith as the Doctor in both hours.
      Jarrod Cooper of Hurricane Who was also in hour 2. Lifestyle Talk
      Radio aired the episode late Friday January 9 at Midnight EST.
      Business Talk Radio will air it late Sunday/early Monday at 2AM EST.
      Links to the networks are at SciFi Overdrive. There should be
      podcasts of the broadcast available.

      DWO Whocast http://www.thewhocast.com
      Current episodes:
      Whocast episode 104. First of 2 episodes covering the history of
      Peter Davison as the 5th Doctor. This time - Peter's first 2 seasons
      (season 19 in 1982 and season 20 in 1983).

      The Two Doctors http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thetwodoctors
      call in number (718) 664-9807
      Jim Iaccino and Kenn Gold look at the latest SciFi broadcasts in the
      US, with emphasis on fitting in Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica,
      Fringe, and the other big scifi shows of the moment. Everything is
      based on US premiere dates rather than UK. Approximately 90 minutes
      per episode. Show airs live with a text chat and can be downloaded
      Current episode - 90 minutes after all. Focused on the Battlestar
      Galactica midseason premiere with some other bits thrown in.
      Next episode - Sunday 9PM PST (Midnight EST, 5AM GMT) - Knight Rider
      might get some attention due to the episode that aired Wednesday (an
      episode that NBC should have hyped as it was effectively the new
      pilot). The new Galactica will get attention. Given the time they
      gave to the Bionic Woman remake when it aired, they may discuss
      Michelle Ryan being in the next Doctor Who special.

      Tin Dog Podcast http://www.tin-dog.co.uk
      Weekly UK based podcast looking at the latest in Doctor Who,
      Torchwood, or Sarah Jane Adventures. New episodes ever 2 weeks or so.

      Proms get examined.

      call in number (724) 444-7444 call id 30659
      West, Dave AC, Colin, and other Doctor Who fans liked the live Doctor
      Who: Podshocks so much that they wanted to keep talking afterwards.
      The resulting show covers Doctor Who, anything else sci-fi related,
      and can go wildly off in all directions. Chats open 15 minutes before
      the scheduled start time.
      Current episode - You Made A Time Machine Out Of A Delorean? CIA
      discusses the Back To The Future movies and admits the existence of
      the animated series.
      Upcoming episodes:
      Sunday 2PM EST/11AM PST/7PM GMT - I've Got A Bad Feeling About This

      Radio Free Skaro http://radiofreeskaro.wordpress.com
      The 3 Canadians get together on Sundays for about an hour or two or
      more to discuss the latest in Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Sarah Jane
      in a fairly amusing manner.
      Current episode - #118 - By Hook or by Crook. Canadian schedule
      announcements, the passing of Patrick McGoohan, and more backstory
      about Warren in Egypt, including a mention of Dubai One.
      Sunday or Monday - #119 - Content unknown.

      Cardiff-based Doctor Who fans get together to discuss the latest

      Current episodes:
      Mini episode where Caleb Woodbridge watches the Confidential on first
      broadcast and gives his thoughts as the Doctor is announced..

      A Whovian's Quest http://www.whovianquest.com
      Jonathan Rainer is podcasting his experiences as he watches Doctor
      Who. In original broadcast order. From 1963. Without a gap. Can he
      pull it off?
      Current episode - 13 - The Web Planet. Includes an update on the
      delays in the interactive website Jonathan is planning.

      Bigger On The Inside http://www.earth-2.net
      Mike and Dan decide to do their own podcast exploring each Doctor Who
      story in broadcast order. It is a very different style from
      Jonathan's. Again - can they pull it off? Part of the Earth-2 family
      of podcasts. Warning - explicit language (swearing). If your
      headphones leak any sound at all - do not listen at work.
      Current episode - 5 - The Aztecs and The Sensorites. Two stories with
      little in common, except that they aired next to each other. Note -
      the hosts like one of the stories more than the other.

      Hooe On Who - reviews of recent Doctor Who DVDs
      Staggering Stories - in the middle of checking out

      Cliff And Stephanie's Doctor Who Fan Podcast http://www.gspn.tv
      Current episode - 17 - Review of Midnight, Turn Left, The Stolen
      Earth, and Journey's End (free)
      Next episode - content unknown
      Cliff and Stephanie Ravenscraft review Doctor Who episodes when their
      busy schedule of podcasts allows time. This time it is a group review
      of the end of Series 4 and their thoughts on Doctor Who's upcoming
      break/loss of David Tennant.
      GSPN.tv is a network of podcasts on TV shows, daily life, religion,
      and other issues that interest the 3 Ravenscrafts. Doctor Who Fan
      Podcast becomes one of the pay programs in the network starting with
      episode 12. The existing paying audience ranked Doctor Who dead last
      in their interests (annoying the hosts who want to do the show but
      are living off the revenue from their podcasts). If you subscribe to
      their podcasts in order to hear the new Doctor Who episodes, be sure
      to alert them that you are doing this. Half the episodes expected to
      be free, half paid.
