Welcome to Vancouver - the home of the X-Files. Join us as we take a journey from pilot to finale, complete with improv, shipping, and lots of singing!

Feb 21, 2018

There's a new podcast in town! Friend of the podcast, Lindsay (you've heard her here before), has decided to embark on her own podcasting journey! We welcome her into the Rationally Random Media fold and are super excited to debut her FIRST EPISODE EVER! Perfect for an X-Files hiatus.

Come listen to the awesome Dr. Joselyn Rojas talk about her path towards becoming a Medical Doctor and then an Immunology researcher at Harvard. Lindsay and Joss talk science and how people perceive their medical professionals and also gush about Gillian Anderson and Mark Snow!

Meow-za, have we got a tail for you! This week we have a special returning guest to the podcast, founding member Amanda! The three girls have a great time together, kind of like the old days, but not the old days when the CIA was experimenting on unsuspecting people through the MK-Ultra project. Download now for info on these secret government projects and to get the skinny on young Skinner! Also you will find out some choice information about how our intrepid podcast hosts watch horror movies (someone hides under an afghan, someone screams in movie theatres). All this and so much more! Nazis! Drafts! Biological Warfare! The exclamation points are endless!! 

Outro music is "Fear is a Man's Best Friend" by John Cale, copyright 1975, Island Records. Check out his website for the latest info on this talented artist: john-cale.com.

It's cross-over time, with Ryan Sprague from Somewhere in the Skies! Ryan, Vanessa, and Carolyn have a blast praising the X-Files fandom and the stars that make the show happen, pointing out commonalities between Slenderman and Ghouli, and giggling all about Bob. Ryan tells his UFO sighting story, and reveals whether or not he gets embarrassed watching MSR with his parents. Prediction: Carolyn will talk about Edgar Cayce, too.

And then, it's all. About. William.

Stuff we mention on the podcast:

 

Jan 30, 2018

We start off with Carolyn giving us all her thoughts on the previous episode, "Plus One." Then, Vanessa and Carolyn wonder: What would Scully and Mulder's Tinder profiles and online dating life look like? The girls reminisce about the 90s and lose some forehead moisture trying to wrap their heads around the Mandela Effect. Carolyn finds her new catch phrase, and Vanessa schools us on how to use the internet in a responsible way. 

Things we talked about on this ep: Heavyweight Podcast (listen here), Ouija Broads (listen here), and Can We Cult (listen here).

After 25 years, it's what we've aaaall been waiting for...ATTHS. Twice.

Vanessa is joined over the phone by two Lone Gunwomen of Newspace, Lindsay (back from last week!) and Sara. The girls ask the most important questions: Is this the best Chris Carter episode in a long time? Is this episode unnecessarily sexually charged? What is up with the obsession with Scully as a mother and her aging body? The girls also sing the praises of a certain cartoonist (find them here) and a certain actress (find her here). You'll also find out what would make Lindsay choke Chris Carter...

 

 

Jan 16, 2018

Vanessa is joined by friend of the podcast, Lindsay, to discuss "This" well-rounded episode. The episode starts with Lindsay's thoughts on "My Struggle III," then the girls touch on subjects such as digital vs. analog, the story behind "the fajitas," the false notion of internet privacy, and - what else? - shipping, shipping, shipping. Listen to the end of the episode for an all-audio version of the promo for season 11's next episode, "Plus One."

Mentioned in this episode: "The X-Quiz 2017," where Carolyn and Vanessa play against two other teams in the ultimate X-Files trivia showdown! Listen here.

 

Things we want to plug:

X-Phile and former fanfic writer Joanna Schaffhausen's new novel, "The Vanishing Season." Read all about it at https://www.joannaschaffhausen.com/

Another friend of the podcast, H.G. Bells, has published a book that is available starting TODAY on Amazon. You can purchase it at https://www.amazon.com/Sleep-Over-Oral-History-Apocalypse/dp/154365519X - and you should.

 

Jan 9, 2018

How do you even begin to discuss one of the most problematic plot twists in television? Carolyn and Vanessa try - and it's hard. But the girls try to keep it as lighthearted as possible, while also attempting to make any iota of sense of it all. 

Content warnings: Discussions of rape. It's kind of hard to avoid in this one.

Season 11 of X-Files starts Wednesday, January 3rd, and you can join us for a virtual watching party at 7:30pm PST! You can cry with us, laugh with us, and "squee!" with us in real time. Join our chat, stop by for quick hello, or experience the whole episode with us! We will NOT be streaming the actual episode, because that would violate all sorts of copyright, but you can hang out with us anyway!

Note: Carolyn and Vanessa will be in different countries when the premiere happens, so you'll only see Vanessa, but hopefully Carolyn will be able to stop by virtually and chat as well!

Carolyn sings a heartfelt goodbye to our boys, Vanessa keeps us all on the track with plot points and helps us explore the hatred that we feel for Morris Fletcher!

This episode may be all about Yves, but we are all about the laughs! In this, the season finale of The Lonegunmen, Carolyn and Vanessa prepare to say goodbye to our X-Files detour. Don't worry we will answer all the pertinent questions, or at least try to answer them. Such questions as: why is America so obsessed with JFK? How is Morris Fletcher the absolute worst? Which podcast callback comes from Frohike in a reticulan suit? And who are Charlene and Darlene and why are they so petty? Thank you for sticking with us through this X-Files spin-off, we've enjoyed this tangent and can't wait to get back to our regularly scheduled podcasting!

Even though we're here in Canada, we've decided to hono(u)r our American sides and take a release break for Thanksgiving! Enjoy the holiday and eat lots of food (but not too much)! We'll be back next week!

Love,

A-hoy, mateys! We're diving into the "lost episode" of the Lone Gunmen and we can't believe it's our second to last one. In this episode, you'll hear all about Vanessa and her sweet tooth, the Chinese threat (or lack thereof?), and Carolyn's secret spy techniques. There may or may not be a rare appearance by Celine Dion, and the girls talk way too much about Jimmy in a hot dog suit. Also join the girls for a trip to Tangentville, which goes into Mulder & Scully Shipping Territory!

This week we swear to tell the whole truth, so help us Frohike! We would be lying if we said we aren't sad to be nearing the end of The Lonegunmen. Carolyn and Vanessa herald the arrival of Walter Freakin' Skinner with as much fanfare as he will allow on today's episode. We also sing the praises of the internet, applaud the show's handling of a sensitive topic, and more hijinks!

Editors remarks: Carolyn accidentally confuses Queen Elizabeth Park for Queen Victoria Park. Forgive her for this mistake! 

Nov 2, 2017

The Tango is a dance... of hilarity with our Lonegunmen! This week Vanessa is letting Frohike dance his way into her heart, Carolyn contemplates the love life of a spy, and both girls still can't believe they got to talk to Dean Haglund about this very episode! We've got all the right moves, some fun behind the scenes info which sidesteps into our horrible attempts at a foreign language. Just turn up the volume and join us in a dance! 

Check out our interview with Dean Haglund, Langly in this episode,  for some more behind the scenes fun facts and also because he is awesome and we love him! 

Oct 24, 2017

It's the 2017 Halloween Spooktacular! No but(t)s about it, this episode is full of "butt stuff!" We're tackling "Badlaa," X-Files season 8, episode 10, for some ooky, spooky Halloween fun. In this episode, Vanessa and Carolyn cover what's problematic (surprised?) and wonder "how do you not do all the bodily function jokes?" (the answer is: you don't NOT do the bodily function jokes, you do ALL the bodily function jokes). Find out who created a product called "Midnight Abductee" (the answer won't surprise you), and Around Vancouver gets ghost- and murder-y!

Vanessa and Carolyn have been diagnosed with the Lone Gunmen bug! If they were hospitalized for it, here's what they would discuss from their beds: Around Vancouver, our ancestries, trading galbladders, Chinese medicine, Call of the Wild, and what Ethan Hawke would pair well with. Join as at Tangentville General Hospital - and find out who said, "Come sweep my chimney!" 

 

Listen for a clue about next week's episode!

Oct 12, 2017

Get ready for maximum laughs, maximum thrills, and maximum... ummm, prison breaks? This week we are going to the big house and we are dragging along a special guest with us! Our friend Sam joins Carolyn and Vanessa as they fantasize about life behind bars, ship with reckless abandon and gush about our favorite conspiracists! Don't worry, we answer all your questions, even the ones you didn't know that you had. So lock yourself up with us and throw away the key! (But don't throw it too far, this episodes not really that long!)  

Oct 4, 2017

This episode is more fun than a barrel of monkeys! Join Vanessa and Carolyn and their unending monkey business as they discuss monkeys in popular culture and filming with monkeys on set. Carolyn finds a rap name (and career?) for herself, and the girls play a game of charades, which none of you can see. This episode will have you laughing so much you'll be saying, "I'll be a monkey's uncle!" 

 P.S. We apologize for the upstairs monster's babies having a tantrum.

This week our episode is the same backwards as forwards (what is the word for that again?), but only if you play it backwards after listening. We've got quite a show for you! Let's take a trip 'around Vancouver' with a brief stop in the German language and plenty of conspiracies and laughs along the way! Vanessa helps us get through some tough topics with the grace and care of an afterschool special, while Carolyn takes us through the only reality that matters--virtual reality! Plus this quote: "My brain is a darkroom, but nothing's developing!" Oh well, we'll get it right one of these days! 

 

Sep 20, 2017

Carolyn and Vanessa would like to introduce you to their new best friend, Dean Haglund! The one and only Richard "Ringo" Langley from our favourite shows, the X-Files and The Lone Gunmen, gives us an amazing peek into the life of a busy actor, comedian, Vancouverite turned Australian, dancer, and gosh, so much else - you'll have to give it a listen to find out! Dean gives us all the juicy deets on going back to the most popular sci-if show from the 90s (you know the one), what it was like growing up in Vancouver in the 80s and 90s, and the true and completely relatable stories of a Simon Fraser University undergrad. He tells us all about conspiracy theories (Vanessa's favourite!), his documentary, The Truth is Out There, and what it feels like to be "That Guy!" Plus: what is Dean doing now? The answer might surprise you!

And uh...delete this after you hear it. 

Check out his documentary here and consider ordering the DVD to support Dean!

Closing music by Jackson Beats. 

Sep 14, 2017

Saddle up, or should I say diaper up? This week Vanessa and Carolyn can hardly wait to dive into hackneyed gender role stereotypes in the media! But don't worry, we've got plenty of other fun too! We get political with some conspiracies courtesy of V and C dives into her political past. With so much more, including an 80s ghost story. So settle right in with a warm bottle and a snuggly blankie, we've got you covered!  

Sep 7, 2017

Jump in! Carolyn and Vanessa drive around in a water powered car with the Lone Gunmen this week! Don't worry, we cracked the window for Jimmy, our golden retriever.

C looks for any excuse to honk the horn and flash the lights for shipping and V veers in and out of traffic with her crazy conspiracy theories!

As always, we make a pit stop for Vancouver area landmarks and plenty of laughs!
