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.
