DwarfCast 147 – The Smegazine Rack – Issue #1
Ok everyone, put on your baseball caps on backwards, wear clashing colours, like Morrisey, 'pop' an 'e', sing 'Barcelona', be surprised at Denmark winning the Euros, experience the same dates on the same days as you will in 2020 and correctly believe Sonic to be superior to Mario because we're going back to 1992! In the first of what will be... *checks*... a lot of fucking DwarfCasts we're going through every issue of the Smegazine one by one, until we be done. Ian's read them all exhaustively over the years, and for whatever reason Danny and Cappsy... haven't. What's going to happen??Show notes

DwarfCast 146 – The Young Ones: Interesting – Commentary
Once in every lifetime, Comes a 'Cast like this, Oh, we need you and you need us, Oh my darlings can't you watch The Young Ones along with us after the pips and then stick around afterwards for a suitably themed Waffle Men?Show notes Adam Buxton's ramble chat with Charlie Brooker Alexei Sayle's Imaginary Sandwich Bar Man ejaculated out of anus and urinated faeces for two years. More at 10. The Two Ninnies CORRECTION: Smith and Jones were in the first series proper of Not The Nine O'Clock News; Ian was thinking of the aborted attempt at a series that was scuppered by a general election being called, which featured only Rowan Atkinson of the later-established cast.

DwarfCast 145 – Book Club #16: Backwards (Part Five)
IT. IS. DONE. 3 men, 4 Books and 16 episodes in just under 16 months. Our series of DwarfCast Book Club finally draws to a close as Ian, Cappsy and Danny wrap up Backwards, with our thoughts on High Midnight and The Difference II. Was Ace's death tossed off too quickly? What noise do popping bones make? Did Rob Grant go too far this time? Find out within!Show notes Take a look at this SCSI socket: Rick and Morty fucking off to another dimension (multiple times) The Waco massacre, three years before Backwards A load of Bolas The alternate ending to the audiobook

DwarfCast 144 – Wafflemen Special #2: Electric Waffleoo
It's waffle time! Again! That's right, to mark the occasion of the whole G&T trio being in the same room for the first time since that spiky red cunt fucked everything up for everyone, we thought we'd have another stab at a Wafflemen Special, since the last one seemed to go surprisingly well. So, join the slightly giddy and tipsy Danny, Cappsy and Ian as they heave their enormous, waddling frames in front of the microphone to discuss all the things you see in the banner, AND MORE.

DwarfCast 143 – Book Club #15: Backwards (Part Four)
It's been a little while coming, but please take your seats, grab a coffee and arrange your notes because the book club is back and we have a lot of... interesting material to cover. Join a crossed legged Ian, Cappsy and Danny as they wince their way through what is undoubtedly the moment that Rob Grant's Backwards takes a bit of of a turn to the sadistic. But never fear, because Ace also makes his triumphant return, thus signalling that everything will be absolutely fine. Right?Show notes The mid-90s Virtuality system and the that may have influenced AR on Red Dwarf. See also the later VFX1. Valve's Gabe Newell lays out his aspirations for the terrifying future of entertainment Red Dwarf The Movie synopsis Rob's pronunciation of Agonoid names in the audiobook Boston Dynamics' latest shenanigans What if the Earth Stopped spinning?

DwarfCast 142 – Dimension Jump XXI Special
For the first time in far, far too long, a small army of Red Dwarf fans laid siege to the Nottingham Crown Plaza last weekend. We called it Dimension Jump XXI, and the last survivors converged on Sunday night to see what they could remember under the glare of our microphone. So join Ian Symes, Fan Club team members Andy Holland, Dan "Pendo" Pendleton and Shelley Smith, plus attendees Dave Billingsley, Si Bromley, Stephen Fletcher, Peter Jones and Jo Sharples as we run through such diverse topics as Lee Cornes meeting his alter ego, Doug Naylor's plans for future projects both?Dwarf and not-quite-Dwarf, Danny John-Jules's reworked lyrics to Tongue Tied, touching tributes, scandalous cheating and taking Johnny Vegas to bed.Show notes Transcript of Doug's video message This year's costume competition entrants Lee Cornes meets Confidence & Paranoia The story of the Partick Thistle Away Subbuteo set Johnny Vegas sings American Pie

DwarfCast 141 – Wafflemen Special #1: Maturity, Memories and Moore
Literally no one asked for it, but yet here we are anyway - a whole podcast devoted to Wafflemen, our regular segment from the commentary episodes in which talk about whatever Dwarfy topic you, the listener, so desires. So, join Cappsy, Danny and Ian as they desperately search for something we can cancel Red Dwarf for, finally settle on whether it was Rob or Doug who was the real funny one and generally just, well, waffle on.Show notes Discussion of Ace Rimmer's gay panic Cappsy being an idiot about the Sonic 1 level select code Bread Dwarf is discussed within the inaugral edition of Coffee Lounge Cock Ian's Doctor Who watch-through blog, Curiosity in a Junkyard The YouTube video that Danny wishes he could unsee (WARNING: graphic content, NSFW, click at your own risk):

DwarfCast 140 – Book Club #14: Backwards (Part Three)
What's that now? You wanted more backwards stuff in your Backwards novel? Well, have we got the DwarfCast for you! Yes, whether you like it or not, in this episode Cappsy, Ian and Danny go Back to Backworld one last time as Rob Grant forces us to consider the reverse logistics of, let's say, a few too many bodily functions. Thanks Rob.Show notes Cappsy was about a decade out with his timeline of the Star Wars defence system Mitchell and Webb's Rebecca parody The tits and arses of the Czech Backwards book cover

DwarfCast 139 – The Promised Land Commentary
IT. IS. DONE. I feel like we've been going on about milestones quite a lot recently, but to add to our previous BBC-era accomplishment we have now finally recorded a commentary for every single extant episode of TV Red Dwarf! Whether or not this ends up being the last ever remains to be seen, but let's hope we'll be returning to our longest running feature sooner rather than never. Before that, though, join Ian, Danny and Cappsy in this feature length commentary of the Dave era's finest, The Promised Land.
109 minutes | Jul 2, 2021
DwarfCast 138 – Book Club #13: Backwards (Part Two)
Yes, I'm sorry, I know we asked you to smoke us some kippers and I realise that we gave you a very specific idea about the sort of time you'd expect us back, but sometimes these things take a little longer than expected, ok? The kippers will be fine, we'll have them cold in some kedgeree or something. Please, stop crying. Yes, that's right, your three favourite ace holes have returned with the next instalment of the DwarfCast Book Club, which this time is all about part 2 of Backwards, Smoke me a Kipper, I'll be Back for Breakfast. Why is Louis Pemberton a perfect human being? How did Lewis Pemberton save Red Dwarf? Is Ace really all that great when compared to Lewis Pemberton? Lewis Pemberton? Ian, Danny and Cappsy discuss all that, and more!Show notes Bob Mortimer's Train Guy Armstrong and Miller's RAF pilots Big Train's parody of A Matter Of Life And Death The 1983 Soviet nuclear false alarm incident Some nerds who are way too obsessed with a TV show tell us about Class M planets
79 minutes | Jun 11, 2021
DwarfCast 137 – Skipper Commentary
Another day, another DwarfCast milestone as we have finally completed our commentaries on all traditionally lengthed Red Dwarf episodes, marking an end to a series of casts going back to 2006. Unless Series XIII comes along, of course. Also, we're going to do The Promised Land in a few weeks. And we'll likely revisit some old episodes if we feel like it. But still. Anyway, join Ian, Cappsy and Danny as they jump between dimensions to see if they can find a reality in which Doug remembers he wrote Dimension Jump and Stoke me a Clipper as they have a jolly old time talking over the final episode of Red Dwarf XI, Skipper.Show notes Matthew Clark's Twitter thread on TV working hours TOS article on Series XI's effects The AA's giant Starbug festering in a car park Official GNP confirmation that Back To Earth isn't Series IX

DwarfCast 136 – Book Club #12: Backwards (Part One)
Welcome to another episode of the Bulc Koob TsacFrawd! It feels like a very, very long time ago that we finished Better than Life but finally we're getting to its sequel! Er, again. Because when it comes to Red Dwarf, sensible continuity is just something that happens to other franchises. So, join Ian Symes, Danny Stephenson and Jonathan Capps as they start their journey into the weird and wonderful world of Rob Grant's Backwards, because All Good Boys Deserve Fatuous opinions of twats.Show notes The Two Ronnies' Mastermind sketch Some examples of the extensive research done into Niagara Falls and nearby mountains Latest "backwards universe" scientific theory updates Markets of Britain, a short film by Lee Titt Doug interviewed by The Independent in 1995 Grant Naylor - the surprising alternative to armadillos A slightly incorrect article about the origins of "Awooga" And a much more amusing tweet from Craig on the subject
74 minutes | May 17, 2021
DwarfCast 135 – M-Corp Commentary
We continue our triumphant victory lap of commentaries as we mop up the last few episodes with M-Corp, officially the second best episode of Series XII and a solid favourite of the site in general. Join Cappsy, Ian and Danny as they hope against hope that they haven't got their microphones mixed up with something entirely less savoury.
113 minutes | May 3, 2021
DwarfCast 134 – Book Club #11: Last Human (Part Four)
Well, it's been quite a journey but we're finally here: Last Human is finished. I don't think we realised when we started this endeavour just how interesting the revisiting of Doug's solo novel would be, but I think we've all come out of the other side a little wiser and a lot more weary of acronyms. So, join the last human alive Ian Symes, mankind's final hope Danny Stephenson and the universe's one remaining broccoli farmer Jonathan Capps as they discuss the second half of The Rage and reflect on what is most certainly a very weird and sometimes frustrating book.

DwarfCast 133 – Mechocracy Commentary
It's 10pm, polls are closing across the country and G&T are now projecting that the next DwarfCast will be... Mechocracy! And in the tradition of all good election coverage, we will now force you to listen to some terrible people talk about the results for longer than is strictly necessary, specifically the Right Honourable Cunts of the Scottish NatIanal, Liberal Dannycrats and The Labour & Cappsoperative parties.Show notes Cappsy meant to say "The Next Doctor" instead of "The Two Doctors", the big idiot "Previously on The West Wing" music Post-Series III Hilly in the Smegazine We mention a Seb Patrick fancast article for a series 2 of the Hitchhiker's TV series, but it seems like it was sadly never published so we're probably remembering one boozy weekend in West London with him excitedly pitching it to us.
106 minutes | Apr 9, 2021
DwarfCast 132 – Book Club #10: Last Human (Part Three)
And so the DwarfCast Book Club advances wearily on, as we continue our re-read (although the failing memories of your hosts means this may as well be a first read) of Doug Naylor's literally seminal novel, Last Human. We're in the final part of the book itself but due to reasons beyond our comprehension it accounts for half of its length so we're splitting it in twain. Join Cappsy, Ian and Danny as they gather round a table at Rita's Kabin and try to figure out what the bloody hell is going on.Show notes Kurzgesagt: What if We Nuke the Moon? Michael McGruder on Tongue Tied Wiki Settle down with a Shincup and catch up with Henry Imbert's YouTube channel

DwarfCast 131 – Timewave Commentary
Over Ganymede & Titan's long and illustrious life we have seen many milestones. 3 years long service. 6 years long service. 9 years long service. 12 years long service. 15 years long service... 18 years long service. But today we mark the day we officially commentate on the last truly shit episode of Red Dwarf (so far). Its loomed large over us for months as we approached but three heroes have arrived and slew the great beast, probably with some amusingly juxtapositioned song playing in the background. So now, we present to you the defeated corpse... of Timewave.Show notes Article about Helium-3 Extraction on the moon "I think it's a superfruit" Niki Hutchinson's tweet about the police uniforms There's never been a better time to buy a woollen penis The Red Dwarf Plot Inconsistencies Project

DwarfCast 130 – Book Club #9: Last Human (Part Two)
[Insert Holly line relevant to a delayed thing eventually happening here] Yes, it's finally here! Danny, Ian and Cappsy once again put on their best dust jackets, turn on their pink study lamps and somehow defy the laws of gravity to bring you another DwarfCast Book Club! This time around we're putting the chapter Time Fork to bed (but not before marrying it first) as the crew unwittingly murder hundreds in order to free a dangerous psychopath, and Anton Chekhov becomes the sixth Dwarfer.Show notes The debate about what exactly shocked Rimmer about Lister's penis. The first in the series Sexual Assault of Men Played for Laughs by Pop Culture Detective. I regret to inform you that the abridged version of the book does, in fact, not cut out this wedding night/weeks scene. Thanks Ants. Thants.

DwarfCast 129 – Purple Alert: Gloop, Hop and Legality
Well, I suppose we better talk about what's been going on shouldn't we? As you no doubt know, the world of Red Dwarf has been a busy old place this February with both good and bad news, so we've gathered an emergency council to discuss the recent GNP turmoil, the Fan Club's inaugural (and triumphant) Holly Hop event and Rob Grant's new script, Into the Gloop.
73 minutes | Feb 15, 2021
DwarfCast 128 – Siliconia Commentary
There is a new DwarfCast update! Would you like to install now, in 10 minutes' time or now?Show notes Past Echoes: Ian's musings on Red Dwarf and technology. Since recording, Dave have started repeating Red Dwarf every Friday night. Which kind of proves our point. We tried to find out why Back To Earth isn't available on demand, and to be honest we're now even more confused. We've spoken to Mac and confirmed that he wasn't in Star Wars, despite what IMDB will have you believe. However, we did find a screenshot of a bloke who looks a bit like him, which is probably where the confusion arose from.
