The SciFi Podcast by Scifihost, Mattroid, Station, And S.. - 1M ago

Welcome to The SciFi Podcast, a wretched hive of scum and villainy a bi-weekly podcast focused on in-depth discussions of all things science fiction. The SciFi Podcast features four hosts—Mattroid, Solo, Nick and Station!—and frequent guests. Each episode we look at a science fiction theme or franchise and take the discussion where no show has gone before.

In this episode, Mattroid is joined by former guest and friend of the podcast Jonasty. Jonas and Mattroid discuss the newly released X-Men film Dark Phoenix, with franchise fan Jonas enjoying it as much as to be expected and Mattroid delivering some surprising opinions and thoughts on the movie. The other co-hosts were unable to join but will be voicing their opinions in the next episode.

With this being the final film in the Fox-run franchise, how does it hold up against the rest? Will Marvel take over from here? When? What are you hoping they’ll keep? Change? So many questions about a series with incredibly imaginative characters and stories rooted in social issues and sci-fi wonder. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Welcome to The SciFi Podcast, a wretched hive of scum and villainy a bi-weekly podcast focused on in-depth discussions of all things science fiction. The SciFi Podcast features four hosts—Mattroid, Solo, Nick and Station!—and frequent guests. Each episode we look at a science fiction theme or franchise and take the discussion where no show has gone before.

WE ARE BACK. That’s right. After months off, yours at The Sci-Fi Podcast have opened their cryochambers and have begun to thaw. With the first 50 episodes (and numerous unnumbered episodes to boot) released, it was time to end season one and head into season two. This is episode five.

2019 is shaping up to be an incredible year for television and movies. We’ve experienced the end of the Marvel Infinity Saga, we’ll see the undoubtedly emotional close to the Skywalker Saga, Alien turned 40 and much, much more. In this episode we discuss the return of two storied franchises: Star Trek and Terminator.

Seventeen years after the final film in the Star Trek: The Next Generation series, Jean-Luc Picard returns in Star Trek: Picard, on CBS All Access. At this time we have very little to go on, but a newly released trailer has ignited the flames of deep space nerdness and you better believe your hosts are all about it.

Terminator made a fairly milquetoast comeback in 2015 with Terminator: Genisys. Arnie made his return as the titular character but sadly that wasn’t enough for fans to rally for, and the franchise appeared to be doomed. But! James Cameron wasn’t about to let that happen. Later this year we’ll welcome the return of Sarah Connor and the Terminator, and the buzz is certainly buzzing.

Disney Plus. X-Men – Phoenix. Random verbal nonsense.
Based on a season-one segment called “While You Were In the Cryochamber”, where the hosts discuss recent life events, Cryochamber episodes aim to emulate that segment while giving ample time to each host so they can discuss topics of their respective choosing.
In Cryochamber 1, Nick talks Disney Plus, the highly-anticipated streaming service; it’s awesome to hear Nick’s excitement on this. Station! exposes her inner Extreme Nerd and goes full Comic Book Guy on X-Men and The Phoenix, in preparation for the upcoming movie. Mattroid basically plays referee and offers virtually nothing outside of evaluating actor Doug Jones in five words.

SLC FanX 2019.
In this second part of the FanX coverage, Mattroid and the Sci-Fi Podcast crew for a weekend of ultimate nerdtasticness. William eats a microphone, Nick recognizes Return of the Jedi hiding in plain sight, Station bails three times but comes back to make some keen observations. Also, they talk about the new Star Wars trailer and other things of much less importance.

MARVEL AVENGERS: ENDGAME
Live from the van! Mattroid, Station!, William Solo Jr. and guest Sharon discuss their reactions to the movie, immediately after departing the theater. Nick saw the movie an hour earlier in a different city and therefore was unable to join the crew, but always one to please he had his own reaction (and hilarious story!) sent over before the end of the night, and it’s been added on to the beginning of this episode.

***SPOILERS ARE MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE***

Will there be changes? Yes there will be, and you’ll learn all about them both in this episode and the one following, but what’s most important for now are the following things:

* We have a new co-host and his name is Nick. He’s a big person with a big heart and equally large sized brain. He will be a lot of fun and provides some excellent and unique perspectives as well.

*Episodes will be shorter. Expect a tighter overall structure.

*We will be covering less newly released content in favor of properties that have been around for a little while. More on this as we release episodes.

*Our episodes are now EXPLICIT. Not horribly so, but you’ve been warned.

SLC FanX 2019.
Mattroid is joined by the Sci-Fi Podcast crew for a weekend of ultimate nerdtasticness. William learns about Facebook Live, Mattroid gets uncomfortable, Stations laughs and laughs and laughs and Nick let’s one slide. Somewhere along the line, they podcast.

SLC Gaming Con 2018. As with Alien Con, Mattroid is once again out in the field and left to his own devices–never a good sign! Not dissimilar to Comic Con or FanX, Gaming Con embraces nerds, geeks, and particularly gamers of all kinds; throw in vendor booths, panels, and competitive gaming (including collegiate e-sports!).

ALIEN CON: 2018, Pasadena, California. With Solo and Station! unable to attend, Mattroid braves the wonderful and weird outer-space inspired convention alone. The audio quality suffers quite badly in some places (so sorry!) but the content is incredible and, especially in conjunction with the pictures below, you’ll get a pretty good idea of the goings-on at Alien Con.

The second spin-off of the Star Wars saga has a young Han Solo flying across the galaxy to reunite with the one he loves. On the way his character and loyalties are tested as he makes new friends, new enemies, and begins his life as a smuggler.

With so much on the line, how does Solo hold up against it’s predecessors? Does new Han compare to the old? Lando? Chewy? Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments section.

It’s here. Episode 50. And only a year or two late.

Getting back to the roots of the show, Mattroid, Solo, and Station decide to once again visit the exquisitely awful Jupiter Ascending, and this time you get to join in on the fun from your very own couch! Special guest Maddy Triggs weighs in on her thoughts on the movie, life, and a thousand other subjects as the gang struggle to pay attention to the space train-wreck brought to us by the Wachowski Siblings. How much do love hating this movie? Or do you hate that you love it? Head to the comments section and let us know.

Show Notes:

William worked really hard on this production. The edits were abysmally difficult, the swears plentiful, the content barely salvageable, and the number of tracks numerous. Yet it sounds great. Find out more about William’s wonderful project The Villa and tell your friends do to the same.

The Magic Word will get you a SCI-Fi tee!

Thank you for joining us for 50 episodes and many extras over the past few years. We love and appreciate each of you.
