The History Files #87: The Armenian Genocide

45 mins - Published Sat, Apr 29, 2017.

Who's Who #86: Arc of Infinity

33 mins - Published Wed, Apr 26, 2017.

Generally, a great serial is followed by a terrible serial, which is followed by a middling serial of passable quality. That’s why, after Earthshock, nobody was surprised to see that Time-Flight was kind of pants. However, expecting Arc of Infinity to be a middle-of-the-road kind of episode that would leave no lasting impressions was a big mistake! It quickly soared into the top-15 list of serials ever covered on this show!

Coffee With Jeff #124: Three Mile Island

30 mins - Published Sun, Apr 16, 2017.

In the 1970s, nuclear power plants were popping up everywhere in the U.S.A. So quickly, in fact, that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission didn’t have the resources to keep up. One of these plants was Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania. On the night of March 28, 1979, lights and alarms began going off like it was The Forth of July in the reactor control room. Something was wrong, and for the next few days, the world waited to see if southern Pennsylvania was going to be a nuclear wasteland!
