Feedback form is now closed.
With some of the best SF and fantasy TV shows coming out on Netflix or Amazon, are regular broadcasts being left behind? Has the quality of genre shows suffered because of it? What is coming on soon on the various streaming channels? How do pay channels affect the fans (ie...Star Trek: Discovery)?

To say that I enjoy podcasting and new media would be a gross understatement. My credits include mentions in high school and collegiate papers, newspapers, Podcasting for Dummies, and Advanced Podcasting Tricks. I have been called an innovator, having created the first fandom podcast (RotO), the first podcast for an Independent Wrestling Federation (Halo: Hardwired), and distributed the first comic book made available via podcast feed (Podcast 9). I was the force behind the official Troma Podcast and a former host/editor of the 501stCast, the official podcast of the 501st Stormtrooper Legion. I produced the long running Amazing Pulp Adventures Radio Show starring Mister Adventure, serving as writer and primary voice actor for recorded and live stage versions. I have done commercial voice work as the voice of CRASH, SWE and GOUGE Wrestling, Volaris phone systems, Howards RV and Fit Family NC (also providing puppeteering). I have MC'd numerous conventions and events, host/creator of Thinkin' While you're Drinkin' Trivia, am the house MC for Succubus Sorority, Riot Kittens and Nerd-Vana Burlesque under the pseudonym Richie Muenster. Between the podcasts, requested voices from other shows, father of 3, various audio sketches and dramas have been heard on ChronoRadio, Star Wars and Beyond, SwitchedOn Show, the Geeklabel Podcast and Dragon Pages' Wingin' It syndicated show, (plus countless guest appearances on other shows) of which I am very...
