Normally, I’m pretty good with words. At the moment, I’m not at my best, for reasons I hope are self evident. However, I’m going to do my best to remember someone who gave more to my life than he ever knew.

I never got to know Leonard Nimoy the way my fellow cast members did, so I can’t remember him in...

I've been telling people for years that I thought Wil Wheaton would be the greatest male avatar voice, EVER... :-) It's about time the listened up! 

This week, I talk a lot about my creative process, how I’ve found myself at a bit of a creative and existential crossroads, and what I’m doing about it.

    • * Radio Free Burrito doesn’t work as hard to earn its [EXPLICIT] tag as Memories of the Futurecast did, but it still manages to upset mom and get Twitter breakup messages from sensitive people...

Serial Mom is one of my favorite horror films ever.  

In a few hours, I’m heading to the theatre for the final rehearsal for tonight’s performance of The War of the Worlds, as part of the 2015 Sci-Fi Fest.

I have the great honor and privilege of playing Orson Welles as Professor Pierson. It’s a bit of a dream come true for me, because I’ve been listening to the infamous 1939...

this sounds awesome

I wrote a long post on my blog about being attacked by a group of people I call The Stupidsphere, mostly to clarify who I believe these people are, and who they are not.

This comment, from reader Merus, is incredibly interesting to me:

“So I’ve been reading about cults for a thing (although cults, as we think of them, and not just harmless...

Sadly, my parents are in this realm.  Totally untrusting of any source other than FOX.  They aren't unintelligent, just frightened old folks.

I studied ancient cults as my special subject at university and I found it fascinating. I see elements of what he's describing in every aspect of human on human interaction though. Rather than disliking the ideas that people hold, we dislike the people themselves. Rather than believe in actual freedom of speech, we believe in a freedom to agree or to get the hell out.

It’s later than usual, but it’s not a year later! How about a new Radio Free Burrito!?

This week, I talked a lot about our secret vacation, and Anne joined me to share a story from her blog.

I think I’m finally getting the hang of mixing podcast audio in Audacity, largely thanks to the wiki.

A couple of very brief notes...

This is a big deal for me. A few months ago, my friend introduced me to Marc Bernardin, who is a new editor for Playboy. My friend told me that Marc is helping bring back the kind of writing that Playboy had in the 70s and 80s, when it was held up next to Esquire, Vanity Fair, and Rolling Stone. They both thought that I...

I used to do a weekly podcast, but then I stopped because I got busy with other things, and I always felt like hardly anyone listened to the podcast, anyway.

But I started it up again this weekend, because it's fun for me to do, and it's a good thing to work on while I'm in between other projects.

This week, I...
