Episode 181 of The Oncoming Storm marks a milestone of sorts. For months Josh has dodged the new Torchwood audios from Big Finish. After the last straw experience of Miracle Day, he was ready to never return to the world of Captain Jack and his crew. But Jeff wouldn't let that stand, and this month forces Josh and Ashley to listen to Fall to Earth by James Goss. There's gonna be fireworks folks! Meanwhile, Josh gets back to the most important Big Finish storyline, that of the 7th Doctor, Ace, and Hex as we go back to World War 1 in No Man's Land by Martin Day. Finally, Ashley brings the last Rocket Men story, Requiem for the Rocket Men by John Dorney, to the table. I wonder if they'll like that one? The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got the best damn insurance salesperson known to humankind. If my insurance person was as good as her, I'd own every possible insurance too!

*YAWN* So tired. After days of driving and all nighters playing games, The Oncoming Storm is back from vacation. And honestly, no one is really feeling up to podcasting. You might say, we're all... Sleepy. Ok, Ok, bad jokes aside, Josh, Jeff, and Rachel are here in episode 180 to discuss SLEEPY, our latest New Adventure by illustrious author Kate Orman. This one does not, however, focus on everyone taking sweet, wonderful naps. No, it's the real start of the Psi Powers series, and so we have a colony world on the brink of destruction from the spontaneous development of Psi powers everywhere! And only the Doctor and his companions can stop the evil corporations from enacting their plans and killing everyone on sight. There's also some timey whimey shenanigans going on, and lots of talking computers. And Doctor torture. Well, it *is* Kate Orman. All this, and Rachel tells us about the first half of The Legends of River Song short story collection. Josh promises to be quiet. The Oncoming Storm... this time, we've got a lot of bleeding eye sockets. Like, a LOT.
