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!
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!
