Interview: Rachel Luttrell (“Teyla Emmagan”, Stargate: Atlantis) joins the crew for a festive interview about her life after joining a high-profile fan franchise. Her expectations for a short run have morphed into a great appreciation of how far and wide the fans are located, and how dedicated to the show they are.
She also tells us about life on the set as a woman who regularly kicks ass and takes names, and the fun of being on a longer running show with a strong fan following.
Future Talk: 300 director Zack Snyder’s next project may be an old story of his, Army of the Dead. It’s a zombie film set in the not-too-distant future where the city of Las Vegas has been turned into a quarantined area full of zombies. The story centers on a father who is trying to find an escape route out of Vegas in order to save his little daughter from the undead flesh eaters.
Listener comments: If you have any suggestions or comments, please let us know. We’ve got plenty of voicemail from fans to listen and respond to, but you’ll hear that in a fresh, separate show.
