Doctor Who: Podshock is the longest running Doctor Who podcast (internet radio show) presented by the fan run Gallifreyan Embassy (est. 1985) and is the official podcast of the Gallifrey One conventions. We feature interviews with the Doctor Who cast and crew along with the latest Doctor Who news, reviews, interviews, commentaries and discussions from an international perspective.
The award winning Doctor Who podcast; Doctor Who: Podshock began in 2005 on the 20th anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy. In that time, it quickly grew into one of the most popular Doctor Who podcasts and continues to be to this day.
Last week I had the privilege of being on and joining my fellow co-host James Naughton on the Cultdom Collective podcast. The episode is a Gallifrey One preview show. Yes, the Doctor Who convention is a year away now at this point, my friends at Cultdom are getting a head start for those planning on attending next February in Los Angeles, CA.
Originally all I had done was record a short comment that was to be played on the show with James. Then the scheduling gods were shinning upon us, because they were recording at a time when I was able to join in on the fun, unbeknownst to James. They were playing my pre-recorded clip I made about meeting James in person for the first time at Gallifrey 20 when suddenly I was on the show myself.
Last month while Doctor Who: Podshock was in Los Angeles, CA at Gallifrey 21 for our annual live on stage there, the tables were turned on us a bit when Chris McKeon interviewed us (Ken Deep, James Naughton, and myself) for the Examiner.com.

Here is the video of the interview. Be sure to check out the article though for other interviews from Gallifrey 21.
For those that follow me on Twitter, may know that I sometimes use AudioBoo to record short audio reports while on the road. It is usually while attending a conference or convention or some other event, though not limited to such. (If you want to know more about AudioBoo, back in 2008, I posted this blog about AudioBoo: Boo! AudioBoo! Mini Mobile Podcasting!)
This year's Gallifrey One convention (Gallifrey Blackjack 21) was no exception.

Our very own James Naughton of Doctor Who: Podshock is the guest in the hot seat in the latest episode of the Ian Todd podcast "Series 2". This humourous, off-centered, Series 2 podcast headed up by the "weird and wonderful" Sunderland based comic, Ian Todd features Simon Helberg of the Big Bang Theory, Micheal O'Keefe, and now James Naughton.
In Series 1 of the podcast, Ian had David Cross of Arrested Development along with various other guests. Be sure to check out both series, but first the James Naughton episode where he discusses reality TV, soft drinks, Doctor Who, and of course the Loch Ness Monster (running time 9:54):
Our surprise guest at the Doctor Who: Podshock live on stage show (episode 141) at Gallifrey 20 (February 2009) was none other than Daphne Ashbrook (1996 Doctor Who movie) who joined Ken Deep, Louis Trapani, and James Naughton on stage along with Doctor Who Producer Phil Collinson and comedian Toby Hadoke.

Doctor Who: Podshock live on stage at Gallifrey 20 recording episode 141 on February 15, 2009. The image is a little blurry and with glare, but note the two Doctor Who: Podshock banners on stage. Also on stage left to right is Doctor Who Producer Phil Collinson, comedian Toby Hadoke, Ken Deep, Louis Trapani, and James Naughton. Kudos to Billy Davis for his help with the banners and this photo.
