Nuketown Radio Active

Nuketown Radio Active #21: Upgrades, GOBLIN Network, Dungeoneer

by Ken Newquist / November 29, 2005

The home improvement never ends at Nuketown, as I prove by painting my bathroom. It's not all housework though -- I've also got news about the GOBLIN Gaming Broadcast Network, a round up of the podcasts I'm listening to now, and a note about a new podcast, Most People Are DJs. Lastly, I've got a review of Atlas Games' card/board game, Dungeoneer.

Radio Active #19: Month of Hell, Baby Nuke 2.0, DMG II

by Ken Newquist / November 9, 2005

Radio Active returns from its unintended, computer-crashing hiatus with great news: I'm going to be a dad again! Since I'm still recovering from a variety of technical issues, this podcast doesn't include the usual Sites of Note and Book Review sections, but does feature a review of Wizards of the Coast's D&D source book, Dungeon Masters Guide II.

Radio Active #18: Finding Serenity Contest, OgreCave and Integral Trees

by Ken Newquist / October 14, 2005

I managed to take a break from my ongoing home improvement efforts and record a podcast! This one opens with an announcement about Radio Active's Finding Serenity book contest, and then launches into reviews of the OgreCave Audio Report, the Librivox audio book project, and Edge of the Edge podcast. The show wraps up with a reviw of Larry Niven's excellent thought experiment novel, The Integral Trees.

    Radio Active #17: Serenity, Amber and Pulp Gamers

    by Ken Newquist / October 3, 2005

    The third of the weekly shows gets underway with a short review of the sci-fi western movie Serenity and then takes a look at two gaming podcasts: Pulp Gamer and Dice Make Bonk. This week's book review is The Great Book of Amber which collects all ten books of Roger Zelazny's excellent Chronicles of Amber series into one tome.

    Radio Active #15: Geek 4x4, Ditlog, Pattern Recognition

    by Ken Newquist / September 20, 2005

    The podcast opens with sad news about Derrek of Skepticality, who appears to have suffered a stroke, then discusses two sites of note: the Geek 4x4 podcast and the new gamer dad blog, Day in the Life of a Gamer. Finally there's a review of William Gibson's Pattern Recognition, a novel about the present day Internet, and those who immerse themselves in it.

    Radio Active #13: Battlestar Galactica Soundtrack, Monster Manual III

    by Ken Newquist / August 12, 2005

    The Battlestar Galactica Season 1 Soundtrack takes centerstage in Radio Active #13, with four songs from the new album featured in the podcast. There's also a bunch of news about the mothership,, including the launch of our new online message forum and Radio Active's new logo. I also talk about the Random Signal podcast and review the Monster Manual III source book for Dungeons and Dragons.

    Radio Active #12: Good News Everybody! KOTOR II, From a Buick 8, SciFi Podcasters

    by Ken Newquist / July 25, 2005

    Good news abounds in Radio Active #12, which includes an announcement about a change in my day job that will let me walk to work. Really. It's also got an announcement about the Atomic Swindlers contest winners and the happy news that Radio Active has joined the ranks of The Science Fiction Podcast Network. It's not all chat though -- there's also a short review of the Xbox version of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II as well as a review of Stephen King's very un-King-like horror novel From a Buick 8.
