Captain Roy's Rocket Radio Show: The UK Podcast for the Culture Geek, Technology Nerd, and Creative Wizard

By Roy Mathur

Welcome to the greatest show in the multiverse! Strap yourself in for a rip-roaring rocketship ride... Blast off! Whoosh! From the back room of Altair City Spaceport's Rocket Tavern, the Captain discusses enjoying and creating books, comics, movies, TV, games, toys, art, and music, with an emphasis on science fiction, fantasy, and horror. An inveterate tinkerer, 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.
