Welcome to another new podcast under the Sateliite Show umbrella, "Yeah, Leave It Here." Hosted by Louis and Queta, it's a discussion on the various movies they (usually Queta) find themselves watching over and over again on TV. First up is the inspiration for this podcast, the 2009 Nora Ephron double-biopic Julie and Julia. Why did they make two different movies, and why should we care about the second one? Also, is Chris Messina a thing? Listen and find out!

Tread Who Perilously: Episode 2

Erik and Justin continue their travels in time and space, landing in 1985 and watching the Colin Baker era story "Timelash."

Find out as Justin and Erik discuss terrible fashion, awful sets and a standout performance by an actor from Blake's 7. Oh, and there's alien snake puppets in this.

Tread Who Perilously: Episode 1

Erik and Justin continue their exploration of television with an excursion into the lesser episodes of that sci-fi stalwart, "Doctor Who." Week one introduces Justin to the Jon Pertwee Doctor as they watch "Day of the Daleks," the TV version of a Doctor Who novelization Justin read as a pre-teen. The 70s are on display as the mustaches denote rank, greasy captains steal wine and the Daleks take too many pauses. Time paradoxes are discussed and Justin learns some of his preconceptions of the show are wrong.

Oh, and a stated pacifist shoots an Ogron.
