What you can expect from The Trocklafane Podcast during series 6:

27 Apr

More frequent podcast episodes – I plan on doing shorter review episodes during  the broadcast of series six, giving my thoughts on each episode and playing relevant trock songs. In the next day or two, there should be another podcast episode released, mostly just catching up on old news and songs I’ve had lined up for a while. (As well as my super-belated Christmas Carol review.) Then my review of The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon should be out next week after the second part has aired. After that, you can probably expect weekly or biweekly episodes for the duration of this series.

More frequent news posts – After the post at the end of this month, I’ll be posting news posts weekly. There has been so much trock news lately that I feel like I need to be updating more often to keep up with it! Once this series is done, I’ll probably continue doing weekly (or, more likely, biweekly) posts.

Other things?
People seemed to like the series 5 song list I made, and I plan to continue doing that sort of thing. I’ve already started a page for series 6 songs here (the YouTube playlist is here) and I’ll be updating it as the series progresses. In the future, you’ll be able to find all the “themed” song lists here.

Though it might not seem like it, I have a lot of ideas and things planned for this site. (And with the end of the school year approaching, I might finally have time to follow through on some of them.) But, I’d also like to know what sorts of things you want to see. Would you like to see some album reviews? Trock artist spotlights? Interviews? Non-trock-related reviews? Crazy rants? What would you guys like to see? (Also, am I the only one who thinks there should be more trock on tumblr?)

Let me know in the comments below!

I was inspired after listening to I Was A Teenage Werewolf by The Remus Lupins. When finished (if finished) it will be my fourth contribution to the new Chameleon Circuit album, “Still Got Legs”, which we’re hoping to record next month ❤ Names of the other songs I’ve written are “Travelling Man”, “Everything Is Ending” and of course “The Doctor Is Dying“. (Spoilers!)” This upcoming album is sounding pretty awesome!

Charlie McDonnell of Chameleon Circuit recently visited the set of Doctor Who and did a series of videos about it with the Doctor Who Confidential team. You can watch the four videos here.
