The Chronic Rift Network is thrilled to be able to have the comedy stylings of Dan Lackaye and Travis Searle on our network. The voyage of radio genius continues with a new episode.  Starting out as The Pirate Ship in the 90s, the boys charted the rough waters of the early days of the Internet and managed to deliver comedy gold week after week.  They were one of the inspirations for The Chronic Rift becoming a podcast.  Last fall, Dan & Travis reunited with a new podcast, bringing back many of the elements of the original Pirate Ship, and John has been on their case to join the network ever since.

Hear how it all began as Dan and Travis present a classic Pirate Ship Radio show while Travis is recovering from his recent nuptials.  It's a somewhat new Dan & Travis Show. Check out all the fun of past episode by visiting them on the web.

This time on Presenting the Transcription Feature, Kevin Lauderdale starts off in the middle of World War II. The classic sit-com Fibber McGee and Molly paints a portrait of life on the Home Front when its stars decide to go to the movies. Between rationing and price controls, just getting inside the theater proves quite the challenge. Then we return to the world of quiz shows with another episode of Information Please, with guests newspaper columnist Franklin P. Adams; sportswriter John Kieran; and pianist, comedian, actor, and raconteur Oscar Levant.

This time the Case File opens for actor and musician Robbie Rist.  Robbie talks with John and Paul about his career, his love of music, and his voiceover work.  He speaks fondly of working with Lindsay Wagner in The Bionic Woman, comments on "The Cousin Oliver" factor, and says why Doc McStuffins is one of the best gigs he's ever worked on.
 
NOTE: This interview took place in early 2013.  Robbie speaks of his parents and their influence on his life, in particular, his music.  Robbie's father recently passed away.  We extend our condolences to Robbie and his family.

Comment on the episode here or write abionicpodcast@gmail.com or better still use the "Send Voicemail" tab on the left of the page to leave a message via your computer.  Take a moment to rate the episode by using our star system at the bottom of this entry.



Robbie Rist was born and raised in California.  He knew at an early age that he wanted to act and was allowed to by his supportive parents provided he never lost sight of who he was.  His parents also developed a love of music in Robbie that continues to this day.

As a child actor, Robbie appeared in numerous television shows - The Brady Bunch, The Bionic Woman, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Galactica 1980 and many more.  His angelic looks also carried with it a little devil on the side that he played to great advantage in many of his roles.

As Robbie got older, he continued to work in television and branched out into the world of voice acting.  He was the voice of the Michaelangelo in the orginal Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies.   He has lent his vocal talents to many animated series and features as well as video games such as Final Fantasy and Zach Bell.  He is currently performing as the voice of "Stuffy" in the highly popular Disney animated series Doc McStuffins.

Robbie's music career is as vast and varied as his acting career.  He has performed as the lead singer, guitarist, bassist and/or drummer for several Los Angeles rock bands, including Wonderboy, The Andersons (band), Cockeyed Ghost, Nice Guy Eddie, and Steve Barton and the Oblivion Click. The list of west coast pop bands Rist has performed with numbers is in the hundreds. He divides his time between film and music production, performing with Los Angeles alt-country band KingsizeMaybe and rock band Jeff Caudill & The Goodtimes Band (with Jeff Caudill of Orange County punk band Gameface and Michael "Popeye" Vogelsang of Orange County punk band Farside). Robbie has also produced a number of records for bands, including Suzy & Los Quattro, Backline, Ginger Britt and the Mighty, Jeff Caudill, Steve Barton and the Oblivion Click, Nice Guy Eddie, Kingsizemaybe and The Mockers. Rist produced the Rubinoos album Automatic Toaster and played drums on that album. He currently is the drummer for Your Favorite Trainwreck.

Robbie also hosts a podcast called The Spoon, "Join hosts Robbie Rist, Chris Jackson, and Thom Bowers, in their quest to understand the wide world around them and the insane people who populate it. Jumping through conversational hyperlinks like a trio of cats playing with a laser pointer, their mission is to separate the stuff from the stuff while providing a generous dose of broadcast irritainment."

Jim Arrowood's Interview with Nicholas Eftimiades (Jim's SciFi Blog)

I first learned about Edward Of Planet Earth and the author Nicholas Eftimiades by listening to an interview on the Scifi Diner Podcast. The idea intrigued me, so I went to Amazon.com and downloaded for my Kindle and began reading. I enjoyed the story and posted about it on this blog.

Nick was very appreciative that I would review his book on this blog and we began our on-line friendship. A few weeks ago, I contacted Nick to see if he might be interested in an interview. He was more than happy to accommodate me, so here it is. We talked about Edward and his two other non-fiction books on Chinese intelligence, and on how we Americans are viewed by people in other countries. But the discussion was not just limited to books, we also discussed the future implications of the evolution of our technology.

Those who are interested in learning more about Nicks Books can visit anywhere books are sold on-line. He can also be found on-line on his blog. Recently, he posted an article on his blog that outlines the intelligence implications of the Battle of Yavin in Star Wars. This was an interesting analytical look at Star Wars and a fun read. We also visited about The Federation of Galaxy Explorers, a non-profit organization intended to promote interest in space exploration in school aged children and young adults.

We’re off to the village of Roarton, Lancashire, setting for the BBC3 zombie television series IN THE FLESH! Created and written by Dominic Mitchell and now entering its second year, this show offers a truly fresh (if such a word can be used for zom…sorry Amy, the “Redeemed!”) take on the genre. Kieren Walker is one of many that inexplicably rose from the grave seeking the brains of the living, and now thanks to a special medication he has regained his former personality and rejoined his family along with many other PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome) sufferers. But in a world struggling to integrate these “Rotters” back into society – and wondering if they  even should – the living and the undead alike walk the Earth seeking answers amid a new reality of discrimination, hatred, and fear. The more things change…

"Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar" starred Bob Bailey as "the man with the action-packed expense account."  A freelance insurance investigator, Dollar was called in to investigate burglaries and suspicious deaths. If he could recover the item or solve a murder, the insurance company might not have to pay off.  In exchange, Dollar got a commission, and, of course, his expenses reimbursed.  The show shifted from a weekly half-hour to 15 minutes five days a week.  This time host Kevin Lauderdale presents all five episodes of one of Dollar's most unusual cases.

Keith gets the opportunity to sit on the other side of the Chronic Rift table as a guest.  His latest Star Trek work, The Klingon Art of War has just been released and he sits with John to discuss the development and writing of the book.  Take a listen as Keith explains all including what is happening with his Dragon Precinct series on a new Spotlight episode.

Pick up a copy of The Klingon Art of War via our Amazon store.  In doing so, you not only support Keith and show the power that be at Simon and Schuster that you wish more Trek literature by Keith, but you also support the podcast as well.  Thank you.

International best-selling author Keith R.A. DeCandido was born, raised, educated, and still lives in the Bronx. His Mom and Dad fed him a steady diet of Robert A. Heinlein, Ursula K. Le Guin, J.R.R. Tolkien, and P.G. Wodehouse, which corrupted him for life -- not only instilling in him a great love of science fiction, fantasy, and silly British humor, but also likely being responsible for his pretentious insistence on using both his middle initials all the time.

Keith has published over thirty novels, most of them in the realm of media tie-ins. The majority of his work has appeared in the worlds of Star Trek: Keith has written novels, novellas, comic books, short stories, and eBooks, and also edited several anthologies that cover all five TV shows as well as several prose-only series -- one of which, the Corps of Engineers eBook series, he co-developed. Several of his Trek novels have hit the USA Today best-seller list, and received critical acclaim from all over the map, both online and in print. Keith edited the monthly Star Trek eBook line from 2001 until the line came to an end in 2008.

He has also written in the worlds of Blizzard Games, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Command and Conquer, CSI, Doctor Who, Farscape, Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda, Marvel Comics, Supernatural, Young Hercules, and many more.

In 2004, Dragon Precinct, Keith's first non-tie-in novel, was published. It's a police procedural in a standard elves/dwarves/magic fantasy setting -- picture Law & Order meets Lord of the Rings. Stories in the same setting have appeared in the anthologies Murder by Magic, Hear Them Roar, Bad-Ass Faeries, and Pandora's Closet.

Keith's editorial career started in college -- serving on Fordham University's award-winning alternative newspaper, called, simply, the paper -- and includes a stint at Library Journal magazine and five years as an editor for the late Byron Preiss and his various companies (Byron Preiss Visual Publications, Byron Preiss Multimedia, BP Books, and ibooks inc.). Among his accomplishments in the latter job were editing a highly successful line of novels based on Marvel Comics's super heroes and helping bring Alfred Bester back into print.

From 1998-2006, Keith owned and operated the company Albé-Shiloh Inc., a provider of writing and editing services. ASI's most visible project was the Nebula Award-nominated anthology of original novelettes called Imaginings: An Anthology of Long Short Fiction. Keith has edited over a dozen anthologies since 1995, from the acclaimed OtherWere: Stories of Transformation in 1996 to the Star Trek anthologies Tales of the Dominion War and Tales from the Captain's Table in 2004-2005 to Doctor Who: Short Trips: The Quality of Leadership in 2008.

For four glorious years, Keith worked on The Chronic Rift, a New York City public access talk show on SF, fantasy, comics, gaming, and other genre issues. Working with his best friend, Executive Producer and Director John S. Drew, Keith was cohost and Producer of the Rift, doing 100 half-hour episodes that aired in New York from 1990-1994.

Keith is a professional musician, currently the percussionist for the parody band the Boogie Knights. He's played on five CDs. From 1996-2000, he was with the Don't Quit Your Day Job Players, and besides his gigs with the Knights, he has been occasionally active in New York City clubs, backing up the Randy Bandits, Steve Rosenhaus, and the late David Honigsberg.

Besides all this, Keith is a student of Kenshikai karate (a brown belt, as of February 2008), and an amateur actor and voiceover actor (you can hear his work on some of the audio dramas produced and directed by his erstwhile Chronic Rift cohort John S. Drew).

The Falling Woman

Winner of the Nebula Award: An archaeologist with a strange power risks death to unlock the secret of the Mayans When night falls over the Yucatan, the archaeologists lay down their tools. But while her colleagues relax, Elizabeth Butler searches for shadows. A famous scientist with a reputation for eccentricity, she carries a strange secret. Where others see nothing but dirt and bones and fragments of pottery, Elizabeth sees shades of the men and women who walked this ground thousands of years before. She can speak to the past—and the past is beginning to speak back. As Elizabeth communes with ghosts, the daughter she abandoned flies to Mexico hoping for a reunion. She finds a mother embroiled in the supernatural, on a quest for the true reason for the Mayans’ disappearance. To dig up the truth, the archaeologist who talks to the dead must learn a far more difficult skill: speaking to her daughter.

Over five years ago, John created an audio drama series with the intention of making it a regular occurrence.  It didn't happen, but now John is almost done with his grad school work and can devote his time more to a project such as this.  Because of that, he is releasing the first five episodes to get everyone on board with the story.  Take a moment to comment here or by writing john@chronicrift.com.

In 1977, the United States government determined that one in every ten million Americans was gifted with a paranormal ability. It immediately set up a commission to look into the growing phenomenon. It was decided that a special, top-secret research facility was needed to study the matter further. Today, in a world where the paranormal is normal, the unexpected happens within the walls of The Dome.

"Headgames" - Jared is the latest case study for the researchers of The Dome.  There is a major concern as his abilities are similar to the late Dr. Sullivan.  Meanwhile, Anne and Helen are combing through the late doctor's papers and discover some shocking details about his plans for world domination.

Think of this episode as a .5 episode.  It's a shorter story that acts as a bridge between the full length dramas in the series.

Cast

Andrea K. Lipinski, Orenthal V. Hawkins, John S. Drew, Susan Drew, Anna Ackley and Edd Drew

Written by John S. Drew

Produced and Drected by John S. Drew

Theme music and episode score by Lenny Ackley
