New Australian Podcast: SpaceFallPC
Mrs_Underhill
I stumbled upon very enjoyable bi-weekly podcast reviewing Blake's 7 episodes, they are up to The Web now and Seek, Locate & Destroy is coming out tomorrow:
https://twitter.c...pacefallpc

I like how they focus on character development and character moments. The Web was the first one I listened to and they had me by appreciating The Web for those things (I really like this episode). Comments about Avon and Cally interactions over "I'm interested in your work" had me in stitches.

Then I listened to the rest of the episodes and it was enjoyable too, with many great insights and interesting Australian perspective on Spacefall, for example. How prison ships were similar to ships bringing convicts to Australia.

They have sections on "It's the 70s" and "Best Avon quote" at the end of each episode. Smile

Just wanted to share.

This isn't new. They been going since February. They done 12 episodes. Though it has been about 3 weeks since the last podcast.

Is there a non-Soc.Media url via which one can download an MP3 of the podcast?
 
Mrs_Underhill
Unfortunately, they appear to have run out of steam. I'm not sure when we can expect another update after "Deliverance".

winnie-l, here's the direct download link:

Or do what I do and do a google search for Blake's 7 podcasts and click on the best player link.
 
Mrs_Underhill
They updated with "Orac" episode!
https://www.hipca...t/HkB3lw1s
I thought they're gone for good. Glad to see them continue, albeit infrequently.
 
daro2096
I think they been busy with their other podcast the Goodies Pirate podcast lately.
 
Mrs_Underhill
They updated with the episode reviewing Season 1:

They read my e-mail there. Smile

I might wait until a B7 podcast is finished. Sigh I miss Down and Safe.

Do you mean until they've done all 52 B7 episodes?!
Don't - that would mean you have like weeks of solid podcast listening to do NOTHING ELSE to get thru them!

I'm enjoying these hipcast podcasts quite a lot - they obviously love the show very much. They're quite long though, like an hour or so each!

There is a B7 podcast which has just finished the show!
http://decorative...g=blakes-7
They are two guys from USA watching B7 for the first time but more or less spoiled. Hit and miss with me but they had interesting guests on sometimes and they did keep to weekly schedule and they did finish it in a year, which is a rare achievement in itself. Smile

Spacefall PC is up to Redemption meanwhile.

In the hipcast 03.CygnusAlpha podcast they mention that ?elusive? 2nd teleport bay... & then say it's implied, in one other B7 episode, that it does exist....

I can't think of any other episode in which that HMMM (does it exist?) 2nd teleport bay exists - can anyone shed any light on this?

The forum thread "41st Anniversary Rewatch - A2 Space Fall" has a post from JustBrad

This episode features three things never seen again.

(snip)
2. The Second teleport bay
(snip)

Are the hipcast guys wrong in saying the existence of a 2nd teleport bay is implied in some other B7 episode?

I'm veeeerrrry slowly getting thru the hipcast podcasts, they are very enjoyable! but only just started 05.TheWeb.
So maybe someone else who has heard more hipcast podcasts has come across their podcast where they discuss this ?

I'd have to check Space Fall. As you refer to "any other episode", I assume you know how the argument from Cygnus Alpha goes, but just in case:

In Cygnus Alpha we have a set of scenes from about 48' 30" in where:
* Vargas is teleported to the Liberator ahead of anyone else.
* Blake calls for teleport.
* We see a close-up of Vargas in a teleport bay by himself. He starts to walk forward, out of the bay.
* Blake, Vila and Gan appear in the usual teleport bay. You can see practically all of them in the shot, so it's clear Vargas isn't with them.
* Vargas enters the scene from the right, on our side of the teleport desk, heading for Blake.

Either Vargas arrived in the normal teleport bay, moved off to somewhere near "us", then comes back to tackle Blake, or he is emerging from a separate teleport bay located near the teleport desk. The problem with the first possibility is that it means Jenna let Vargas walk around in the teleport bay without challenging him or doing anything. Perhaps she was frantically trying to bring up Blake and the others, but you'd think we'd see her scrambling from behind the desk, trying to intercept Vargas while flipping switches etc.

A moment we're puzzled by, and discuss, in this Friday's Blakes 7 In Character podcast!

In the Horizon Technical Manuals the drawing for the Liberator's Teleport Bay has a secondary teleport bay to the left of the controls desk.

I stumbled on another finished podcast by TimeVault which I found very enjoyable:
https://thetimeva...om/7692-2/
It's been apparently going out for several years and they finished it very recently.
