Episode 71 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back with a look at lost celebrities, found fantasy, and fan films in Episode 71 of Upon Further Review!  In this show we thank our loyal listeners before diving right into the heart of the show: first we discuss the life and times of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson; second we look at David Anthony Durham’s foray into epic fantasy, Acacia; and finally, we return to Middle Earth with our review of the fan film The Hunt for Gollum.  As always, we appreciate your continued dedication to the show–and as always, we ask that you spread the word about the show to others!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

What’s wrong with a bit of shameless self-promotion?

Specifically, promotion of Greg’s new novel, just released by Five Star Press.  The Third Sign, a work of epic fantasy called “a very satisfying tale from an intriguing new voice” by Bram Stoker award winning author David Niall Wilson and “memorable…gripping…if this book is any indication, the author is in for a long and successful career” by reviewers from The Beezer Review to SFFWorld to Library Journal, has gotten positive pre-publication attention, and if you have any interest in fantasy (or in supporting a member of your favorite review team ;) ), please stop by Greg’s personal webpage for information on how to order the book.  And thanks in advance for putting up with a bit of self-promotion!

Episode 70 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back by boldly going where no one has gone before–for some cheesecake–in Episode 70 of Upon Further Review!  In this show we tie up some loose ends before getting right into the major part of the episode:  first we enjoy the food (perhaps not the fat content) at The Cheesecake Factory; second we warp into the new frontier with our review of the new Star Trek movie; and finally, we look at news with a twist (of onion?) as we review the comedy news source The Onion.  As always, we appreciate your support of the show–and as always, we thank you for letting others know about it as well!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

New episode coming soon!

Just a quick note to let you fine folks know that a new episode of UFR is on the way…we’ve been recovering from a fairly massive computer crash (more details to come :) ), but should have new reviews for your enjoyment within the next few days.  As always, thanks for your patience and support!

Episode 69 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back with a show about ballparks and Battlestar Galactica (sort of) in Episode 69 of Upon Further Review!  In this show we talk weather and wandering musicians before getting into the meat of the episode:  in the first half we look at the Mets’ new home, Citi Field, before presenting the third and final part of our interview with Minister Faust, started in Episode 67.  As always, we appreciate your continued dedication to the show…and as always, we ask that you share that dedication with others by spreading the word!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (”You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (”We Gotta Go”).)

Episode 68 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back with a new show about con men and politicians (we know, who’s ever made that connection before?) in Episode 68 of Upon Further Review!  In this show we get right down to business with our review of the new hit cable series Leverage before turning things over to part two of our interview with author and activist Minister Faust, started in the last episode.  As always, we welcome your feedback, suggestions for things to review and support–and as always, we appreciate your willingness to spread the word about the show!

Episode 67 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back after a winter layoff with a show about psychology, pseudonyms and superheroes–not necessarily in that order–in Episode 67 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we thank our loyal listeners (and mention a milestone) before getting into the heart of the show: in the first half we review From the Notebooks of Dr. Brain, a satirical self-help book for superheroes, and in the second play the first part of our interview with the author of the book, Minister Faust.  The interview is wide-ranging (we’ll release the next part in a couple of weeks) and certainly provocative, not to say controversial, and we suspect you’ll be as intrigued by it as we were.  As always, we appreciate your continued dedication to the show, and as always, we’re grateful for your efforts in spreading the word!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

Episode 66 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back once again with a New Year’s resolution to bring you more opinions, ideas and entertainment–and we’re starting with a bang in Episode 66 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we talk some technical matters before getting down to the meat of the show: first, we look at the half-filled glass of water in a different way with our review of Ode Magazine; second, we take up arms against a sea of, er, orcs as we look at the World of Warcraft video game; and finally, we toast the departing of the old year and arrival of the new with our take on the New Year’s holiday.  As always, we appreciate your continued listening to the show, and as always, we’re grateful for your willingness to spread the word!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (”You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (”We Gotta Go”).)

Episode 65 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back with a different kind of show in Episode 65 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we interview Dr. Wayne Cristaudo, professor and author of the book Power, Love and Evil: Contribution to a Philosophy of the Damaged, which we reviewed in our last show.  Dr. Cristaudo had some clarifications he wanted to make, and so we decided to do this interview, which turned out to be a wide-ranging discussion on love, evil, damage, and morality (and its problems).  It’s not our standard format, which we’ll return to in our next episode, but we think you’ll find it interesting, and we look forward to hearing your feedback.  As always, we appreciate your ideas and opinions, and as always, we really appreciate it when you spread the word about the show!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (”You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (”We Gotta Go”).)
