Five(ish) Fangirls Episode #360: A Gallifreyan Buccaneer

Rachel's birthday is here again, and that means she gets to pick another Big Finish audio for us to review. And we're sure to no one's surprise she chose a 6th Doctor story, "Doctor Who and the Pirates".  Doctor Who isn't new to stories involving pirates, but we've never heard the Doctor break out into song before. Plus we discuss Rachel's very special, and related, birthday present. Also some news and your feedback.

Five(ish) Fangirls Episode #357: Up On The Roof

After being hidden away from the public for over 50 years, Peter Jackson has taken the hours of footage of The Beatles while they were working on the album 'Get Back' (later renamed 'Let It Be'), and has created a docuseries of epic proportions. We take a look at why this documentary is so important to the history of the Fab Four, but also how raises the bar for what is capable in film restorations. We don't have any news but we do have your feedback and a few "dad jokes" to (hopefully) make you chuckle.
