Episode 0?!? That's like, earlier than Episode 1! Yes, join your hosts Josh and Ashley as they record their surprise pre official release date episode. Josh and Ashley figured that you want to know a little about your hosts, but they didn't want to overload the 1st official episode with too much information, so they created this early episode full of Info Dump. Learn a little about your hosts' background, find out what their favorite books and audios are, and listen to them tell you why you should care about this spinoff media stuff anyway.
I totally agree! When we first started doing the podcast, I was interested to see if any of my views would change, not really thinking that they would. Then when we read Transit and I had a total change of heart, it made me even more excited to go back and read even more! What's so amazing about a lot of these stories is that they do have some incredible depth to them(well some do at least!)and this makes it very rewarding to re-read or re-listen. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm really looking forward to re-reading The Pit to see if it's still as bad as I remember...
Recently I've started reading the New Adventures from the beginning so as I work through them I'll listen and comment on your podcasts. I only became a fan of Doctor Who in 97 and relocated to Switzerland in 2001 (where I only recall finding them in one store, and only very occasionally) so my reading of the books is far patchier than I would like - I've read around half of them. Since I was fairly young when I first read them it's interesting to note how much my tastes have changed; for example, when I first read Storm Harvest I thought it was brilliant, but rereading it a couple of years ago I found it terribly dull, and pretty much vice versa with Heritage.
