ELEVENTH DOCTOR MATT SMITH!!! Anyone who follows anything I do probably has heard my numerous blabbings about how much I love Doctor Who. After one such blabbing on the tweetstream, I was contacted by Devin Johnson at the BBC who graciously offered to help get Matt on the podcast if at all possible. AND SO IT CAME TO PASS. I would like to smother Devin, Matt Stein and the BBC with an absurd pile of thanks.
Matt Smith loves chess, Alan Partridge and cookies. Every charming character trait you see in the Eleventh Doctor is all Matt. It was an extreme pleasure hanging out with him, and we look forward to some sweet Doctor on Dickens action for the Doctor Who Xmas special on December 25th, 9p ET on BBC America.
Joining me this episode were fellow Whovians Matt Mira and Janet Varney.

Donal (long 'o') Logue is currently on one of my favorite TV shows, "Terriers" (a show NOT about dogs) on FX. I want many people to watch this show so the network will make more, because that's how television works. (Somehow, I've still managed to make a campaign for a show I have nothing to do with ALL ABOUT ME and what I want!) You may also recognize Donal from "Grounded For Life," "The Tao of Steve," "Blade," or from 90s era MTV as Jimmy the cab driver. Janet Varney ("Dinner & a Movie" co-host, SF Sketchfest co-producer and Chris Hardwick co-habitator) also sits in.

WIRED's head nerd Chris Anderson! He also wrote the wonderful books "The Long Tail" and "Free: The Future of a Radical Price". Mr. Anderson--as the Matrix would have to refer to him--is a super-smart, thoughtful human and I always love chatting with him. What topics can you expect from this episode? Trolls! Social politics! The economy of attention! How to write a book! And the ever-raging debate: NERDS v GEEKS. Please to enjoy.
