It’s a new year and a new “Galaxy” for The G2V Podcast as we kick off 2014 with a special episode that turns the spotlight on The G2V Guys themselves: Scott Alan Woodard and Arnold T. Blumberg!
“After six months of producing this podcast and building an audience that we really truly appreciate, we thought it was long past time to introduce ourselves in a substantial way. Who are these guys? Why should you listen to us? What have we done before this podcast began, and what led to the launch of this show? And most importantly for listeners, what amazing stuff do we have planned as we head into our first full year of G2V? This is where all the answers can be found…and there’s even a contest for a FREE prize too!”
In a special holiday “Satellite” episode just in time for Christmas Day, the G2V’s own Scott Alan Woodard presents a dramatic reading of his story “All Snug in Their Beds” originally published in the 2007 DOCTOR WHO anthology published by Big Finish, SHORT TRIPS: THE GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS!
Featuring music by Matt Jessop, Rat Soufflé, and Singing Bell.
From Scott: “Despite a few ropey impressions and accents, I think it came out rather well considering I did it all in one night (a bit like the antics of that portly, red suited gentleman). I hope you all enjoy it and thanks again for supporting The G2V Podcast!”
We’re gonna put a SPELL on you with a look at the astonishing antics of AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN! Scott and Arnold discuss the diabolical deeds of the first nine episodes, the heart- and head-stopping mid-season finale (SPOILER WARNING: the guys talk about everything up to and including that episode), and what might be in store for us as we reach the final four (only four, say it isn’t so!) episodes in January. If you’re a horror fan and you aren’t already following this series, you NEED to be watching this show!
ALSO: Scott and Arnold suggest some really last-minute holiday gift ideas!
In Part 2 of our celebration of DOCTOR WHO‘s 50th anniversary, we take a look at the big events of the weekend itself, from the airing of the special adventure “The Day of the Doctor” to AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME, the Mark Gatiss-scripted drama that takes a nostalgic look back at the beginning of it all. Scott and Arnold discuss the celebration of a television institution, focus on the many “beautiful” touches that made it such an unbridled joy, and also provide some feedback on Big Finish’s own 50th anniversary special, “The Light at the End,” and the classic Doctor romp, “The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot!” Also, check the show links below for some of the many ways that Scott and Arnold seemed to take over the Internet on the 50th anniversary weekend!
SPECIAL NOTE: This episode features a remix of the DOCTOR WHO theme by “Gwylock1”!
CONTEST TIME!

Get in touch, share your story, and we’ll not only share some of them in the next episode but choose one to receive this special 20th anniversary collectible!
Believe it or not, Scott and Arnold survived the zombie attacks featured in our previous episode…but just barely! This time around, our celebration of the 50th anniversary of DOCTOR WHO begins with a look at fandom – how it not only supported the series during those dark “wilderness” years but how it also helped bring your G2V hosts together and allowed them both to contribute professionally to the universe of our favorite TV series! We focus on the fun, the fantasy, and the fandom with a look at our hero – the Doctor – on screen, in print, and on audio!
