SFP-NOW Christmas Special 2020

Tis the season and we here at SciFiPulse Radio and SFP-NOW wish you a merry one.

In this special episode, which we recorded in early December. Ian, Ben, and Raissa discuss episodes of Star Trek: Discovery, The Mandalorian, and more.

Ian was very excited about the inclusion of Bo-Katan in Mandalorian and was thrilled with Katee Sackhoff's interpretation of a role that she has only done as animated. We also discussed Ahsoka Tano and speculate a little about how she may be used in future Star Wars projects.

Additionally. Given the time of year. We also discuss a few of our favorite Christmas Movies and TV shows. So ho ho ho and all of that.

Apologies for Ben's sound in this episode. We were having a few problems with his microphone and have done our best to clean it up. But unfortunately, we just were not able to fix all of it.

SFP-NOW Chats Harryhausen, Flash Gordon & Escape From New York with Writer John Walsh

Ep. 119
Welcome to a very special edition of SFP-NOW on SciFi-Pulse Radio. In this episode, we are joined by special guest John Walsh who is a huge fan of science fiction and fantasy. An acclaimed filmmaker and writer as well as a Trustee of the Ray Harryhausen Foundation, which preserves and displays the work of the legendary special effects artist and filmmaker. In the episode. John takes us through his early career and how he found friendship with the late filmmaker who created memorable monsters such as Medusa and the Kraken from the original 'Clash of The Titans' and many more. He also talks in-depth about many of the things that can be found in his book 'Harryhausen: The Lost Movies', which I highly recommend to fans of genre film and television. As it gives insight into the many things that Ray Harryhausen would have liked to do. But never got to due to budgetary reasons. John also discusses the incredible journey that he went on. When putting together his Flash Gordon book 'Flash Gordon: The Official Story of the Film'. Which is an incredible story to listen to and well worth the time in the telling. In short. When John wrote the book and it came time to look for images from the film. He learned at the last minute that the studio didn't save anything. So he had to source images and production stills from the fan community and some of the people that worked behind the scenes on the film. Added to all of this great stuff. John also previews his new book, which is due out in September, which is called 'Escape From New York: The Official Story of the Film'. So if you enjoy retro movies and appreciate classic genre entertainment. Tune into this episode because we cover a hell of a lot of stuff.You learn more about John Walsh and his work at
