RevCast: from RevolutionSF.com
Commentary, criticism and comedy about movies, TV and all corners of geeky genres and culture. A sci-fi convention in your pocket.

Live from DragonCon 2016: On the American Sci-Fi Classic track, RevSF's Joe Crowe and Gary Mitchel put on a weekend of ape-tastic fun, even when they are not talking about Planet of the Apes. 

But in this case, they are! Take a deep dive into the third Planet of the Apes movie from 1971 (and the only one with Ricardo Montalban, to our everlasting regret.) 

BABY MILO, YOU GUYS. 

RevSF pals in this live episode include Andrew Gaska, writer of Planet of the Apes books and stories and consultant for 20th Century Fox. Check him out at BLAM! Ventures. 

Join Joe, Gary, and the Classic Track Irregulars at DragonCon on Labor Day weekend and all year round on the FacBoo.

In this special edition of the RevCast, Joe Crowe interviews Tami Stronach, the Childlike Empress from the 1984 classic fantasy flick, The Neverending Story. 

I know! Falcor! Atreyu! That movie is the best. 

Joe called her the "Childlike Princess" in the intro. Smooth move, Ex-Lax.

Anyways. 

Today you can find Ms. Stronach at Paper Canoe Company, where she and her husband Greg are making family-friendly music and plays. Their mission: Paper Canoe creates stories that make kids feel like grown ups and make grownups feel like kids. Check out her song "Beanstalk Jack" at the link.

2016 was a rough year for all of us, even here are the RevCast/RevNews. Deanna, Tegan and Gary have been away for a while, but now they're back! Although we wish it was under better circumstances.

First up, our crew covers why they've been away, and then our hosts for this RevNews are joined by KC Ryan and Sue K for a look back at the life and career of the one and only Carrie Fisher, who we lost at the end of the year.

Listen in as they discuss crying all the tears; what Leia means to them; Carrie's fights against agism, the Hollywood system, & for mental health awareness; her carrer as a writer and script doctor; our love of her dog's twitter; her interactions with the fans; how we should have had her around longer; how the modern era of the internet and Twitter let us know our icons better, but also means their loss hurts more; the impact of Star Wars on pop culture & their lives; Carrie's work outside Star Wars & how she'll be memorialized; the infamous bikini;how we should share our stories & love with the people who inspire us before they're gone, and our our favorite Carrie Leia memories.

The RevolutionSF RevNews theme music is "20 Minutes of Oxygen" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets. Find them at Thickets.net.
