      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.

      Doctor Who: Podshock http://www.gallifreyanembassy.org/portal
      Live Talkshoe broadcasts - http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/23358
      call in number (724) 444-7444 call id 23358
      1) Home to the Weekly-ish chat show with US and UK Doctor Who fans 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 episode:
      Episode 139 - Gallifrey 2009 pre-show part 1, review of The War Machines,
      and more. Mike Doran returns with the guys in the first of the pre-Gallifrey
      shows. There is apparently some audio problem during this show, but I did
      not hear it. Length - a tad under 2 hours.

      DWO Whocast http://www.thewhocast.com
      Current episodes:
      Whocast episode 105. Second of 2 episodes covering the history of Peter
      Davison as the 5th Doctor.

      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 later.
      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.
      Current episode - 79 - Vampires and Daleks.

      CIA - Cultdom In Audio http://ciashock.podomatic.com
      Live Talkshoe broadcasts http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/30659
      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 - I've Got A Bad Feeling About This - Star Wars IV, V, and
      VI stop by, have a chat, and steal the droids.
      Upcoming episodes:
      Sunday 2PM EST/11AM PST/7PM GMT - A first run episode.

      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 - #119 - Fall Guys. Everything you would want to know before
      going to the Gallifrey 20 convention in LA on Valentine's weekend, and
      everything you need to know about The Fall Guy. Ever.
      Sunday or Monday - #120 - To Be Announced - The Movie!

      A Podcast Of Impossible Things http://podcastofimpossiblethings.blogspot.com
      Cardiff-based Doctor Who fans get together to discuss the latest Doctor Who
      and do a full length commentary on new Doctor Who episodes.
      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

      The Big Finish Podcast http://www.bigfinish.com/podcast
      Big Finish podcasts at least once a month to discuss their Doctor Who and
      other projects (Sapphire and Steel, Stargate (!), Dark Shadows, Bernice
      Summerfield, etc).
      Current episode - Big Finish 2009 Doctor Who release schedule special.

      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
      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.

      MMM Commentaries http://www.mmmcommentaries.com
      Roving Australian podcasting gang. Some episodes are a discussion of the

      Time and The Deadly Assassin are available.

      through the website with archives appearing right after the show finishes.

      The Minute Doctor Who Podcast

      minutes long.

      contest. Traditional episodes soon.
