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!

Aug 17, 2017

We're taking a break from the X-Files to cover another classic in its universe - The Lone Gunmen! In this episode, Vanessa and Carolyn talk 2000s moments, Byers' relationship with his dad, and all things conspiracy theories. Vanessa recalls her 17th birthday, while Carolyn worries what the NSA/CSIS might think about her internet searches. We're also super happy that we don't have to say goodbye to Vancouver just yet!

Join us in a little break from the X-Files to talk about our favourite trio!

We made it! Georgia joins Carolyn, Vanessa and Amanda on a movie journey. We answer all the tough questions! Where were our girls when the first X-Files Feature Film was released and who did Vanessa bring to the movies? Which Shadowy Syndicate members are perfect for each other? How does the Well Manicured Man sound so very posh and pissed? Can Georgia get Carolyn to renounce her shipper ways? Do we want or even really deserve a Mulder and Scully movie kiss? All this and plenty of your favorite segments, a middle-aged mom review that warns against a very unconventional hotel situation, and someone proclaiming her love for "chunky" movies. Can four girls fight the future? Only this episode will tell.

Jul 25, 2017

It's a surprise (sort of) bonus! Vanessa and Carolyn sit down with Lisa Gemino, long-time crew member on the X-Files during its original filming in Vancouver. You'll find out what Chris Carter is really like (spoiler alert: he may be nicer than we pretend he is...), catch some behind-the-scenes tidbits, and hear about an on-set incident that may go down in X-Files crew history! 

Reminder: We are taking a 2-week release break from our regular episodes. Stay tuned for "Fight the Future" on August 10th, and after that, 13 episodes covering "The Lone Gunmen!" 

Happy summer, everyone!

It's the end of season 5, and we give Vancouver a proper send-off! But first, we have so much praise for Gibson Praise, do some Well-Manicured Man impressions (you don't want to miss those), compare Scully's jealousy of Diana Fowley with her jealousy towards Phoebe Green (remember her?), and in doing so, try to figure out what a true love triangle is. We're not sure we actually come to a conclusion on that one. Plus, what do the Lone Gunmen do before bed? You'll hear that answer in this episode, and dare we say, it's pretty hilarious.

We also feature interviews with people (our friends!) who were extras in the famous chess scene - hear about what they heard, saw, and did! 

And in our season 5 wrap-up, we play some highlights, wax poetic for our patrons, and, of course, go over our ratings for the season, because we're just that meta.

Welcome to the longest episode of NAXFPP! It's super fun over here!

NEXT WEEK - stay tuned for a special interview with Lisa Gemino, crew member for many years of the X-Files' Vancouver home. Then, we take a 2-week release break, because, summer.

Thanks for listening! We love you!

Join in our madness this week as we get bugged by, well, a giant bug. Vanessa takes us behind the scenes of her job as a telemarketer and relays some workplace angst. The girls discover some extremely long vocabulary and then try to recreate some possible workplace romance over pasta. All this and plenty of fun facts as well as a Shipping that had Carolyn's finger on the rewind button!

Thanks to our listener Paul for our outro! 

Jul 5, 2017

Vin Forte is back! He joins Vanessa and Carolyn to talk about Mulder stretches, bioweaponry fun facts, and Mulder's sketchy dealings. Carolyn surprises Vanessa with a "Pepsi Challenge," and we get a bit of a sugar high as we talk about our favourite sugary drinks. Also listen for a new word, coined right here on the podcast!

Note: In her sugar high frenzy, Vanessa managed to throw her microphone and somehow turn it off without realizing, so her audio is very low for the last 15 minutes or so of the episode. Whoops! Say no to sugar, kids!


Jul 4, 2017

We're going on a mini journey once again! Join Carolyn and Vanessa to talk about upside down crosses and Scully cutting her losses. (Rhyme time!)

Enjoy our mini adventure!

Jun 26, 2017

It's time for another NAXFPP toofer-extraordinaire! This week we handle the big pile of "Nope!" that is Travelers and wonder why skeptical Mulder is skeptical in Mind's Eye. Carolyn is captivated by the smoky and dreamy '50s, while Vanessa takes a Vancouver journey through her own Mind's Eye. We also crush on some hipster-looking coroners and become "travelers" through our own past tweets! Tune in for all your favorite segments and plenty of Fun Facts! 

Thank you to our listener, Paul, for the outro!

Jun 20, 2017

Carolyn and Vanessa are at it again with a conversation about shipping that devolves into talking about actual ships (funny how that happens), Scully's scandalous hypnosis, and a horrifying alternate reality where everyone is the Cigarette Smoking Man's child...The girls ponder what Krycek and Marita's celebrity dating name would be, and muse about a hard choice that Skinner has to make...

Thanks to our listener Paul for our awesome outro!

Who's over there making out in the hallway? Why, it's Alex and Marita, of course! And Vanessa and Carolyn are not ok with it. Plus, Vanessa takes a trip through 90s internet pages, and Carolyn wonders if the alien goo can get into nose holes (because let's face it, we're never, ever going to truly understand how it works). The girls also explore the X-Files alien family tree, question Mulder's skepticism, and talk a lot about Russia.

Baby now we've got Bad Blood - HEY!

We welcome Carolyn's sister Monica as a guest this week as we chat about one of our favourite episodes of all time! Monica shares her X-Files origin story, which involved being scarred by Carolyn. We talk about all the wonderful actors in the episode, especially Luke Wilson, and Monica and Carolyn have lots to say about vampire lore and subculture. You can play along with our guessing game that is actually harder than it seems, and sing an homage to the episode with us! Grab half of a bagel with light cream cheese and travel down to Texas with us.

May 31, 2017

Let's take a dip in the primordial cyber ooze! We are a little freaked out by our computers this week as Artificial Intelligence threatens our very existence. Welcome to Kill Switch! Carolyn and Vanessa are joined by two phile-friends to discuss whether robots are running the world. Carolyn gets a little excited about her favorite "genetic opera" while Vanessa can't get enough of sarcastic Scully. Download now for tons of fun facts and a confusing journey through technology, society, and whatever name the CW goes by now. 

Thank you to our listener Paul for our outro!

Editors note: We have some weird background noise in this episode, we've got it figured out, but couldn't fix it on this recording. Thanks for standing by us!



May 23, 2017

Welcome to Chinga, the first X-Files episode Carolyn ever saw! Don't worry, you'll hear a lot about her X-Files origin story. We also reflect (no pun intended) on our favourite bald guys, talk a lot about Stephen King, and Carolyn takes her own stab at being a prolific horror writer to tell Vanessa a story that totally freaks her out. Find out what we're shipping this time and shudder along with us as we talk about possibly one of the creepiest X-Files episodes ever!


May 15, 2017


This week we pay tribute to teen angst and Mulder's boyish agility! The trees are alive, with the sound of angry dads--it seems. Carolyn and Vanessa view the X-Files through adolescent glasses! Does it smell like teen spirit in here? Download now and don't get trapped in the orchard after curfew!

Good news! Thanks to our awesome patrons on, we are getting a new recorder! This will help us avoid audio issues in the future. Season 5 has been a wild audio ride!

Thanks everyone for your regular support! Shout out to: Alex, Anna-Karin, Daniel, Erika, Jemimah, Jennifer, John, Maria, Michelle, Monica, Naomi, Peter, Sara, Vicki, and Vin! 

On that note, we apologize for audio weirdness this week. 




May 8, 2017

How much blue paint can you swallow before you die? We talk to our guest, Lindsay, to find out! We also talk the season 11 announcement (cautiously optimistic), overused plot devices, and wonder why Mulder can't keep his fish alive. In the end, we come to the conclusion that "Mulder doesn't need a badge to do what he wants to do," and end up having our very own NRA conference. Enjoy the crazy!


May 1, 2017

This episode will melt your face off! This week Vanessa and Carolyn welcome a new and exciting guest! Andrea Warner from the podcast Pop This! comes by to share her hot takes on feminism, pop culture, and being driven by the Cigarette Smoking Man. We get down to the 'bones' of the episode and have a great time laughing at Mulder's fight skills and Scully's desert wanderings in a nightgown. Download today for maximum episode freshness! 

Thank you to our listener Paul for the amazing outro music!

Apr 24, 2017

Before we get into the description, we apologize for the audio quality this week. Our recorder is acting less-than-stellar. We are in the process of rectifying that situation, but for now, we hope that you will stick with us and enjoy this episode anyway! Next week will be better, we promise.

This week, we tackle The Post-Modern Prometheus - the X-Files episode that has sparked many an internet think piece. On that note, trigger warning: we talk about rape in this episode.

But we also talk about fun things, such as what Cher would be like as a mom. Carolyn also gives us her best Mutato impression, and, as always, we go down with the Mulder & Scully ship. To Carolyn's surprise, Vanessa gets the shippiest she ever has! Listen also for a taste of what Mulder's voicemail greeting would be, according to us.

Thanks as always for listening!  

Apr 18, 2017

This week we wander off the main path and travel off-road with Carolyn and Amanda! Tag along on our impromptu camping trip with Mulder and Scully. Ever wonder which podcast host would be the one to keep the other two alive? The answer probably won't surprise you! All this and our favourite segments, including shipping, oh plenty of shipping! So let Amanda get you a marshmallow for roasting on the fire as we cozy up and sing some campfire songs! 

Thanks to listener Paul for the outro song!

Apr 13, 2017

Vanessa and Carolyn welcome back an erstwhile guest to chat about their favourite trio, the Lone Gunmen! KB joins the girls to cover this fine 1989 vintage episode (like a fine wine...Get it? Ahem...Anyone? Tough room). Topics covered include huge cell phones the size of Mulder's head, Mulder's wedding ring and fan theories about Mulder's supposed former marriage, hackers, and 90s haircuts! We also ponder what happened to Mulder's pants, and who X lets into his bathtub...

Thanks to listener Paul for the outro song!

Apr 4, 2017

It's baaack! Redux again! This week Carolyn and Vanessa have a blast talking about this conspiracy-packed episode.  Vanessa wonders what a syndicate group therapy session would look like. Carolyn wonders if hospital visiting hours are enforced when your nurses are shippers. We answer some important questions! Does Scully have gal pals? Why is sad Mulder so very sad? Where can we get our dinner cloned? All this and some crazy fan theories mainly surrounding CSM, Skinner, Scully's mom and a priest--not necessarily in that order. 

Mar 29, 2017

We're back! Welcome to Season 5! Carolyn and Vanessa can barely contain their excitement about reaching their favourite season of the X-Files. We read some listener comments and questions to get the ball rolling, then pick apart Mulder's murder, discuss Scully's infamous Southern Blot, and find ourselves stymied by the black oil AGAIN. We then explore a couple super important questions: Were aliens involved in the Cold War? Who is the anti-shipper of the X-Files? And where does Skinner get his power? 

Download now for NAXFPP redux!

(Note: We are sorry in advance for any audio weirdness due to technical difficulties.)


Mar 16, 2017

Amanda joins Vanessa and Carolyn again to wrap up season 4, and she makes some pretty bold guesses about what she missed. Carolyn and Vanessa sing their praises for season 4, our amazing listeners, and our patrons on Patreon! Join us for season 5 after a one-week release break.

We wanna be where the pillows are, so get comfy with NAXFPP! In the season four finale Carolyn and Vanessa break it down and get biblical. We get into a serious conversation about the importance of faith, but have faith that we have plenty of laughs along the way! We also wish for Mulder and Scully currency, highlight the plight of women in the FBI, and WOW we are crazy about the WOW signal... and the disturbing sound of space... Find your comfy pillow and download now!

Thanks to Paul for creating our outro song and listen to episode 420 for his tribute to our theme song. Check out his Soundcloud here:

We're chasing some demons this week! Our curly-haired angels, Carolyn and Vanessa, woke up in a strange place and can't quite figure out why youtube keeps suggesting alien abduction videos. C wonders what Scully writes about Mulder in her diary and V gets psychological! This episode has it all, some top notch shipping, 90s moments, a myriad of fun facts and fashion you can catwalk into a crime scene with! Also, don't miss an exciting visit to our favourite coastal Rhode island town, Quantamahalish...Quantamagagadoodoo? Download to find out if we ever get the pronunciation right! 

Feb 17, 2017

Good morning starshine, the earth says hello! In this episode, we chat with Vin Forte of the podcast "Any Time With Vin Forte" about the classic Simpsons episode, "The Springfield Files." We hear Vin's thoughts on the Revival and the X-Files in general, hear fun facts from both Carolyn and Vin, and talk about a whole slew of 90s moments. Vin is appalled by Carolyn's choice of aquarium in a landlocked state, and Vanessa commiserates. We try to get to the bottom of the Red Speedo mystery and find out one of the best-kept Simpsons secrets! Vin also wows us with his impressions of cartoon characters, and we discuss what the Simpsons version did better than the X-Files themselves. Don't be afraid! We bring you love!
