My Experiences in the Third World War

My Experiences in the Third World War

Finally, we’re back at Derry & Toms to take a look at the 1980 Moorcock collection My Experiences in the Third World War. Along the way Phil and I compare notes regarding our mindsets in the 1980s, laugh at the preposterous Controller and let fate decide on the Wandering Traumatic Nuclear War Film Table.

Also, on this occasion we might not offend a small town in the UK, but potentially all of Canada. But seriously what DOES ‘pie-dish of privilege and broken promises’ really mean?

The Final Programme Phase Three

The Final Programme Phase Three

Hussein is back in Derry & Toms to triumphantly conclude our epic coverage of The Final Programme.

We talk parties… get older… and add Rhyl to the list of towns we’ve offended… but damn it we got through it!

The best news is that Hussein WILL return again.

This show is played out once again by N Λ N D with the new track Gallery of the Lost.

The Final Programme Phase Two

Finally, the Spheres align and Hussein and I manage, after ten months, to get it together and look at Phase Two of The Final Programme. 

We talk about Mike’s uncanny prescience, wrestling in Featherstone Library, and Hussein rags on sci-fi again. It’s a fun time all round. 

Also, GAC reaches the village of Treybach. Foxes may be abroad.

Episode 05 – The Final Programme Phase One w/ @husseindharma

The Final Programme Phase One

After a degree of arm-twisting and one false start, Hussein finally gets his head into a sci-fi/fantasy book and agrees to tell the tale!

We cover the first Phase of The Final Programme, the introduction of Jerry Cornelius into the world of Michael Moorcock.

Hussein pops a couple of cherries, appearing on his first podcast AND reading his first ever scifi/fantasy novel! He also gets to marvel at the wonders of psychedelic 70s scifi covers. Meanwhile I keep mixing up my Perssons with my Brunners.

Massive thanks to new patrons Matt and Tom, as well of course as existing Chaos Engineers Norman, Fred, Malpertius and David. I’m ruminating on what I can do in terms of patron exclusives. Watch this space.
