HTP Episode 079 – Dr. Mohamed Noor

5B05F09E-E77B-41A7-AE60-0B189115D0E4

In addition to being the Dean of Natural Sciences at Duke University, Dr. Mohamed Noor is also a giant Star Trek fan, and has the opportunity to act as a science advisor on Season 3 of Star Trek: Discovery.  Not only was he on the team that developed the scientific rationale behind “The Burn”, he and Dr. Erin Macdonald (episodes #13 and #51)  wrote a detailed article titled The Science Behind Discovery’s Burn that fleshes out the details for the science-minded viewers.

This episode of Hungry Trilobyte features he and I discussing how it’s now acceptable to use fandom in academia, whereas that was not always the case.  We spend a lot more time just hashing out scientific weirdness (and accidental accuracies) within our favorite Star Trek episodes. 

You can follow him on Twitter and on his YouTube Channel, BioTrekkie Explains!

HTP Episode 078 – Nick Taber

 

1-min

Nick Taber is the head honcho over at NickTaberFitness.com, but also the host of Movie Theater Time Machine. He’s a guy who can use both side of his brain at the exact same time… he’s an expert on how to help average people increase their health, but he’s also a major movie buff. He and I have a great talk about both these topics, and the weird ways in which they intersect.

HTP Episode 076 – Screaming Chuy

 

A44AFFC6-151C-4C23-8DCC-71352D3C52DF

The Screaming Chuy show is a podcast with a layout very similar to Hungry Trilobyte’s. Chuy is a guy who appreciates free-form conversation, good laughs, and exploring fandom anywhere you find it. He’s taken a bit of a different path with his show, with different types of guests, and he’s a great example of what makes podcasting such a versatile format. Here, he and I have a great chat about fandom, Rocky Horror Picture Show, horror movies like Halloween and Friday the 13th, Star Trek, and MST3k.

 

Follow Chuy on Twitter and YouTube, and subscribe to Screaming Chuy on all major podcast platforms, such as Spotify, Google, Anchor.fm, and Apple

HTP Episode 075 – Joseph Mallozzi

Joe_Puddle

Joseph Mallozzi is a highly accomplished writer, with series such as Utopia Falls and Dark Matter to his credit.  However, the work I couldn’t resist talking about was his work on the Stargate series, joining SG1 in Season 4 and helping launch Atlantis and Universe.  Joe and I talk about world-building, US Military support of the show, the importance of humor in science fiction, and the Richard Dean Anderson factor.  Because Jack O’Neill is awesome. 

We also get to take some awesome tangents into talking about getting kids into reading (the Harry Potter Effect) and getting them to keep reading after they grow up (the Post-Harry-Potter effect).  Also, how has the shortened TV season trend changed showrunning?

You can follow Joeseph on his official website/blog,  JosephMallozzi.com, as well as his Twitter feed.

HTP Episode 074 – Steven Jay Rubin

Steven Jay Rubin is the author of The James Bond Movie Encyclopedia. As a fellow Bond fan, I’m happy to pick his brain on classic 007 topics such as “Which Bond actor worked best?” and “Does the Bond continuity work?” He and I have a mutual admiration for the lengths the franchise has went through to stay fresh and relevant.

In addition, Steven is a screenwriter with a particular interest in comedy—real comedy, funny comedy, and we spend a lot of time talking about how the genre isn’t at its best right now, and ways it could see new life.

The James Bond Movie Encyclopedia is available on Amazon right now.  If you’d like a signed copy, check with the good folks at Larry Edmunds Bookshop.

Check out Steve’s Facebook group for the book, and watch for his feature “This Day in James Bond Movie History”.  You can also find him on LinkedIn,  and his somewhat lesser-used Twitter.

29B294B7-24B8-4C3F-A814-82A43BCD4463

Nick Bailey is the voice behind the Fancounters Celebrity Podcast, a creativty discussion podcast with an approach very similar to Hungry Trilobyte. Nick also has a solid background in independent film with projects such as Life On Our Own and Growing Up Hollywood.

In this episode, Nick and I talk about the merits of podcasting and independent film, and I get to talk about what I consider to be the Golden Age of indie cinema: the years 2000-2012.  I take this opportunity to gush over one of my favorite weird projects, Moving.

In addition to the website Fancounters.com, you can track Nick’s podcast on Twitter , Facebook, and YouTube.

A605E50E-D66B-41C1-BD72-892559A37712

 

Lanie Labens (first seen in Episode 36) has returned to Hungry Trilobyte to talk about her new book, The Bear Moon, as well as her writing persona of Halston Blake. This is a fantastic chat, full of insights into writing genre fiction in the 21st century, motivating yourself as an author (especially an unpublished author) and the value of writing something you’re passionate about!

Not only do we pick apart how genre fiction can cross over into more mainstream types of fiction, we also share our other mutual interests: Animal Crossing, and getting back to conventions sooner rather than later!

You can buy The Bear Moon digitally from Amazon as well as on paperback.  You can buy books directly from the author herself on the official author’s website, Halstonblakeauthor.com .

You can follow Lanie’s non-literary adventures on her on Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.

Fredd Carroll is the podcaster behind “The Cinephiles Flashback” and “Within the Head of Fredd”.

In this episode, Fredd and I enjoy swapping stories about how to approach film and TV outside our comfort zones.

You can follow Fredd’s adventures on his official website, as well as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
