The UK Podcast for the Culture Geek, Technology Nerd, and Creative Wizard
Welcome to the greatest show in the multiverse! Strap yourself in for a rip-roaring rocketship ride as you blast off into the Infinite Ocean of Weird. Whoosh! Broadcasting from Altair, the Captain talks about books, comics, movies, TV, games, toys, art, and music; with an emphasis on genre entertainment; particularly science fiction, fantasy, and horror. An inveterate tinkerer (you have to be to run this old tub); he also talks about whatever happens to catch his tech mad fancy. Produced using alien technology, eldritch powers, and C8H10N4O2 based beverages, following that first night fuelled by C2H5OH on the 4th(ish) of July 2012. Oh avast.
Talk nerdy to me. };-> I'm always happy to respond to listeners. You can send an email, or connect with me on Twitter.
Namaste. Get in touch if you want to be on the show, and can stand not being paid with anything more than good karma.
You will need a decent microphone, good internet connection, a quiet space, and I will require your undivided attention for a minimum of twenty minutes. The guest spot will be cancelled if good sound is unobtainable. Alternatively, you can arrange to visit the studio.
It is also absolutely vital that you publicise your participation in the show using your own social media.

The Captain! "Spacer of Swankiness" Presenter
"Doctor... Who? Pah! I am the Captain! Sherbet lemon? Step into my vimana. What? Yes, of course it's smaller on the inside you blithering idiot!" The Captain is an adventurer, rock star, and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2, and insanely loud music. His exploits usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse, or thoroughly bugger it up.
NB/ Contrary to the wanted posters vile, vicious, and wholly unfounded rumours, he is absolutely not a Minsky-Bennet Arm uni-tentacle enhanced cyborg from the 27th dimension.

I started the podcast in 2012 because there was very little that encompassed the broad range of the UK geek experience, and if I didn't have anything to listen to, I'd damn well make it myself.
Although based in the UK, the podcast goes wherever life takes me, including an early temporary relocation to Mauritius where I was working as a technology columnist for a national broadsheet newspaper.
The show has been variously titled: Captain Roy's Rocket Radio Show, Roy's Geek Broadcast, Roy.Pod, Roy's Rocket Radio, neRRRdcast, and Captain Roy's Rusty Rocket Radio Show.
