I am Clay Dugger, The Podcast Cowboy, and I want to welcome you to the second episode of Watching the Skies:From “Who Goes There?” to “The Thing”.
This five episode mini-series will explore “Who Goes There?”, the wonderful story by John W. Campbell, Jr., and all the great entertainment that it has spawned
In this episode, I am joined by my good friend Paul K. Bisson. He and I discuss the classic 1951 movie, “The Thing from Another World”. This is one of the first “space monster come to Earth” flicks that ruled the 1950’s.
Paul K. Bisson is the narrative voice of The Food Network’s “Restaurant Stakeout”. He has also been interviewed for the Time-Life “Six Million Dollar Man - The Complete Collection” DVD set.
Paul is the co-creator of “Cyborgs: A Bionic Podcast”, found on The Chronic Rift Network.
You can find Paul over at www.bionicfans.net and www.abionicpodcast.com.
The podcast I have with my wife, “This and That with Him and Her (and sometimes It)”, can be found on the Chronic Rift Network. Go to http://chronicrift.com.
You can find my audio adaptation of “Who Goes There?” at http://mustbenicestudios.podomatic.com.

For a poor kid growing up in Boston (where there wasn't much to do except watch TV or go outside and find trouble), they were doorways into the worlds of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and comics. And they remain the cornerstones of Paul K. Bisson's inner Fanboy.
Today, Paul is an actor, writer, independent media producer, and all-around Geek. He still collects comics (mostly DC and definitely Wonder Woman), he founded the member-rich Bionic Fan Network (http://www.bionicfans.net) and an ambitious online Bionic encyclopedia, The Bionic Wiki (http://www.bionic.wikia.com), he's the webmaster of The Omen Chronicles, the only fansite devoted to the Omen film series (http://www.omenchronicles.com), and he's co-host and co-producer on Cyborgs: A Bionic Podcast, (http://www.abionicpodcast.com) a mostly twice a month podcast looking at each and every episode of The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman.
