We Say Farewell to Leonard Nimoy
We recorded this post over a week ago, but then it sat in the cloud without any publication. However, even this long after, it’s really and truly sad that Leonard Nimoy has passed away. We talk about that for a little while in the episode and then move on to talking about other stuff. More details about the new Alien movie are coming out. In part, many were concerned that the 3rd and 4th movie would just be forgotten in the story that is being told. And they might be. Neill Blomkamp said some words that concerned people about the canon. And we ended with me calling out a couple of friends over me not hating Star Wars: The Old Republic. So thank you for listening, sorry we’re late, and we’ll see you next week! http://media.blubrry.com/ftl_radio/podcast.ftlradio.com/2014/FTL25-We_Say_Farewell_to_Leonard_Nimoy.mp3

What Is Mass Effect 4 Going to Be?
We had an entire episode planned. And then, right before we were going to talk about everything, I saw a tweet about Mass Effect 4. And then it made us realize how much we missed the game. Mass Effect 4 is in production and it is well on its way. They’re hiring for people to lead online game development–what that means, we’ve no idea. But we decided to break down where the game is right now, what the future holds for it, and all of that fun stuff. Whether you liked the ending of Mass Effect 3–who liked it?–or not, I think we can all agree that this game really was an amazing series, BioWare did a great job sucking us in, and I hope we can all be forgiving when this next game comes out. We also talked a little about the next Alien movie. Didn’t hear? Well then listen! http://media.blubrry.com/ftl_radio/podcast.ftlradio.com/2014/FTL024-What_is_Mass_Effect_4_Going_to_Be.mp3

Should We Rick Roll Aliens?
In what turned into a totally random discussion, Chris and I discussed what sort of a message we should send aliens. There’s talk of sending them Wikipedia, a list of literature, or just a message that says, “yo, we’re here.” But Chris had a great idea. He thought we should rick roll them. Send them a message, they decipher it, and suddenly they hear those amazing, lovely words. That part of the podcast starts at around the 32 minute mark. We also talked about Stargate being relaunched into a trilogy and the writers they’re bringing on. Mel Brooks said that he wants to do a Spaceballs 2? Sounds awesome. We talk more about why Deadpool will be good and why Green Lantern sucked. And there’s a whole lot more. So sit down (or don’t), relax (or don’t), and enjoy the episode (please do). And if you want to see us on iTunes, Stitcher, Twitter, or Facebook, go right ahead! http://media.blubrry.com/ftl_radio/podcast.ftlradio.com/2014/FTL023-Should_We_Rick_Roll_Aliens.mp3

Should Marvel Release a Hulk Solo Movie — Again?
As you can clearly see, FTL Radio has made a change to the look and feel of our site. We’re still working on it, so please bare with us. That being said, the podcast has been growing since we launched half a year ago and we felt the site deserved cleaner, more professional look. And we have you to thank for that. We have a newsletter, so you can throw your email over there to the right or down below to receive updates when new episodes are published. For the record, the introduction is not us advertising any game or anything, but we both laughed our asses off because of the Super Bowl ad. This week we talked about the Ghost Busters movie and the announcement that it was going to be an all female cast. Quite frankly, I think it’s awesome and the cast is pretty freaking cool as well. Of course some people are not so happy. We talked about Gale Hawthorne–I mean Liam Hemsworth–being the lead in the upcoming Independence Day. But what we spent a good chunk of time talking about is the Hulk. He’s a bad ass, we all know that. But the two times they’ve made a movie about him, they’ve not been that good. It’s because of Mark Ruffalo and the Avengers that the Hulk worked so well. However, what sort of an environment could Marvel create where a Hulk movie would work? Is it even possible? Thank you for listening, enjoy the episode, and feel free to let us know what you think. http://media.blubrry.com/ftl_radio/podcast.ftlradio.com/2014/FTL022_Should-Marvel-Release-a-Hulk-Solo-Movie-Again.mp3

Episode 21: SyFy Gets Their Act Together and Leaders Argue for Safe AI
This episode was one of my favorites as we reviewed SyFy’s 12 Monkeys, talked about the trailer for Age of Ultron (AVENGERS!!!) and spent some time discussing a few leaders getting together to offer their opinions on artificial intelligence and how we need to be careful. If you enjoyed the episode, leave a comment below. We’d love to hear from you! http://media.blubrry.com/ftl_radio/podcast.ftlradio.com/2014/FTL021-SyFy-Gets-Their-Act-Together-and-Leaders-Argue-for-Safe-AI.mp3

Episode 20: Aliens Invade, Now What Do You Do?
We covered quite a bit of news this week that we were both really excited. We also went into depth about what would happen if aliens invaded. Not what they would want, but what would you do if they did come? Would you fight? Hide? Join an insurgency? Etc, etc? Have a listen and let us know what you think! http://media.blubrry.com/ftl_radio/podcast.ftlradio.com/2014/FTL020_Aliens-Invade-Now-What-Do-You-Do.mp3

Episode 19: Happy New Year and Get Your Act Straight, Bungie
It’s not often that we revisit a topic that was discussed only a short while prior. I think we do a disservice to our listeners to go back and talk about things again and again. But Bungie has been really screwing the pooch when it comes to Destiny. And both Chris and I had some things we wanted to vent about it. But before that, we talked about some cool things going on in the science fiction universe. One of them was talking about the concept art that Neill Blomkamp put together for his idea of an Alien sequel. And wow it’s amazing. Anyway … Enjoy the episode and we’ll talk to you next week! http://media.blubrry.com/ftl_radio/podcast.ftlradio.com/2014/FTL019_Happy-New-Year-and-Get-Your-Act-Straight-Bungie.mp3

Episode 18: What Would Happen if Aliens Actually Came to Earth?
In the 18th episode, we returned with some news going on. Apparently there are people that want to direct Star Trek. The Sony hack reveals some info about Star Wars. Chris and I get into a debate about consoles vs. PC. And then we talk about what would happen if aliens came to Earth. How would we respond? Please enjoy the episode! http://media.blubrry.com/ftl_radio/podcast.ftlradio.com/2014/018_FTL_121514.mp3

Episode 17: Oh My God – Star Wars Trailer
Let’s keep this short and very sweet. The first trailer was released last Friday. It’s a teaser. It’s amazing. I don’t care what you say. And you should really watch it. Then listen to us as we break it down bit by bit and try to speculate on what’s going on. http://media.blubrry.com/ftl_radio/podcast.ftlradio.com/2014/017_FTL_120114.mp3

Episode 16: Destiny Review and More
In our sixteenth episode, we actually talked about a lot of different cool science fiction things. But we spent a good long time talking about the semi-new game, Destiny. I just happened to buy a XBox One as well as Destiny, so I got sucked into the game real easily. But we also talked about Star Wars, Ridley Scott, and a bunch of other stuff. Enjoy! http://media.blubrry.com/ftl_radio/podcast.ftlradio.com/2014/016_FTL_112414.mp3
