My Christmas-turned-Winter Reading List is front and center on this episode of Radio Active as I run down the books I've been reading recently, including Revelation Space by Alistair Reynolds, The Last Colony by John Scalzi and Star Wars: Omnipedia: Tales of the Jedi, Volume 1.
In Radio Active #75 I look back on the holidays and talk about the presents I found under the Geek Tree this year, geek out with some gaming on the Xbox 360 and Wii, check out a tool for porting Unix utilities to the Mac, contemplate some retro-future t-shirts.
On this episode of Nuketown Radio Active, I dream of a good night’s sleep, remember the adventure that is potty training my son, recount my Xbox 360 "Red Ring of Death" woes and talk about the boatload of games I’ve been reviewing.
In Netheads, I try out the “Is Gd” url shortner, test drive the Obsidian Portal gaming wiki, and round out the show by geeking out over the Star Wars RPG game master’s screen.

There are several ways to get the podcast:
[img_assist|nid=2708|title=|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=125|height=125]The kids are getting over colds and we've got another round of home improvement under our belts as Nuketown Radio Active returns for more adventures in geek parenting. In this episode I've got a run down the video games I'll playing over the next few weeks, I take a look at Green Ronin's new Wizards and Warlocks role-playing game and find kindergartners playing chess with spaceborne astronauts.
Radio Active #72 contememplates the best way to organize a geeky bookshelf, takes another turn at chess with kids, finds out that Neutron Lad has a lot to talk about, asks questions about Nuketown's long-dormant RADIATIONS newsletter and finally reviews Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition, the latest edition of the venerable role-playing game by Wizards of the Coast.
Summer's over and Nuketown Radio Active's back in the saddle as I talk about a different kind of game day, dodge a bullet with a crashed hard drive, get ready for a Western-themed NukemCon 2008.
My promised review of Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition has been bumped to Radio Active #72, and instead I talk a little about the challenges of reviewing the game, and what my gaming group's decided to do with the new edition.
I accidentally linked the story for Radio Active #70 to the file for #69. This is a re-post to get the file into the feed; show notes are still available at:
And that folks, is why you should always check your feed and feed stats after posting a new episode...
On this episode of Nuketown Radio Active I talk about my trip to Shea Stadium to watch the Mets, give an update on my summer reading list, and talk about planning the next Nuke(m)Con.
In Netheads I speculate about this year's PodcampPhilly podcasting conference at Temple University, check out Dark Horse Comics' online preview of the upcoming Solomon Kane comic book, look at the Monsterpocalypse giant monster miniature battle game, and geek out about the Star Wars RPG.
It's summer and that means it's time to kick back and relax ... if only I can remember how. In this episode of Radio Active I run down my summer plans, including a week in New England, trips to Mets and IronPigs baseball games and adventures in home improvement.
It's all Balticon, all the time as I recap my trip to the science fiction convention, talk about the panels I attended, catch up with some old friends (and find some new ones) and talk about the new audio and video podcasts -- such as Mur Lafferty and Jason Adams' new podcast ZombInc and the supernatural fiction video podcast Stranger Horizons -- that I discovered at the convention.
