In the News:
Interview: Our guest this week is “Charlie Jade” co-creator and executive producer Robert Wertheimer. Bob returns to Slice of SciFi for a second time and brings with him the good news that “Charlie Jade,” the South African television series about a P.I. that travels between parallel universes, will finally get to be seen (legally) by the Americans when it debuts on the SCI FI Channel on June 6, 2008, airing before “Doctor Who.” Bob also clues us in on some of his other projects in the works.
Future Talk: This past week Peter Jackson and Guillermo del Toro sat down in front of their computers on opposite ends of the planet and discussed their ideas and visions for their collaborated new film “The Hobbit,” based on the novel from J.R.R. Tolkien. We share all the juicy tidbits of their online chat with the crowd of international fans and press that attended the session.
Listener comments: If you have any suggestions or comments, please let us know. Keep your comments brief, or funny, and maybe you’ll hear your message on the voicemail show! See you next week with fresh new content.

Something is screwed up with the download, I think.
Yes, something is definately screwed up with the download!
Yeah, it gave some 60 second commercial or such for a radio station, 98 Rock?
Philip Banks says
Yep I got about the first Mb then it all went away. No doubt it will be back online soon enough.
Tom Boucher says
I got a minute long radio style cutaway that the guy kept failing trying to explain he was interrupting but not interrupting. Then it ended. bout 0:52 long.
Aw great, now I’m getting an error message on the website. “Error opening file.” All I needed was the last 6 minutes cause I accidentally deleted the episode befor eI was finished listening and now I can’t get it from iTunes or here. 🙁 Podango sucks.
Summer Brooks says
For the folks using iTunes, you might have to unsub then resub to clear that stray file out of the cached feed.
Woohoo, it works!
Podcast trouble never hangs around
When it hears this Summer sound.
“Here I come to save the day”
That means that Summer Brooks is on her way.
Yes sir, when there is a wrong to right
Summer Brooks will join the fight.
On the sea or on the land,
She gets the situation well in hand.
still does not seem to be working. It will not download on I Tunes. I tried resubscribing.
Shane from Sydney says
Slice and C2C both appear to affected and it doesn’t matter what method you use to download. Almost looks like there is a limit to concurrent connections and you are refused until a slot is available. When it does start downloading it is slow. I got C2C last night at blindingly fast 17k… that is in dial-up territory. I use Juice BTW.
I’m downloading it now (direct link, not iTunes) at 70k/s, so it looks like it might have been suffering from excessive downloading earlier. 🙂
