Captain Roy's Rocket Radio Show: THE UK Geek Podcast367 episodes - English - Latest episode: 3 days ago - ★★★★ - 1 rating
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 science fiction, fantasy, and horror; books, comics, movies, TV, games, toys, and whatever catches his art, music, and tech mad fancy. The UK podcast for the culture geek, technology nerd, and creative wizard is produced using alien technology, eldritch powers, and caffeinated beverages, since a Summer night in 2012 fuelled by two gin and tonics.
