BPP 201 – Points of Departure

Points of DepartureWhat an aptly named episode for both Babylon 5 and for our podcast.  On Babylon 5, Commander Sinclair has been conveniently recalled to Earth after the death or the President.  The considerably more “military” Captain Sheridan is taking over the station, much to the chagrin of the Minbari.  Garibaldi and Delenn are still out of action, G’Kar ran off somewhere and the “still functional” are a bit stressed.

For the podcast, we have updated the show numbering to something that makes a bit more sense.  More important we now have some desperately needed help in the form of a show editor – Troy Rutter.  Troy knows Babylon 5.  And he knows how Jim and I work.  I can’t say enough of how pleased Jim and I both are to have his assistance.  For those who don’t know, it takes a lot of work beyond simply recording to put out a quality podcast and finding a style fit isn’t always easy.  Troy is a home run.  Yes, this is the same Troy Rutter that Jim interviewed earlier.  He’s also an experience podcaster and voiceover artist.  You can find out more about Troy at his website: TroyRutter.com.

While we’re plugging our technical team, I’ll also toss in a shout out to Anthea Ybarra, the silver tongue lass that is the voice of the show.  If you ever need a lady’s voice for your project, feel free to give her a call, as well.  She’s at SilverTongueLass.com.

Enjoy the kickoff to season 2!

Just remember… No boom today.  Boom tomorrow.  There’s always a boom tomorrow!

  1. Hey Raul and JIm,
    I understood you both to believe Sheridan was probably Clark’s pick to command Babylon 5. I tend to think he was Santiago’s. If General Haig trusted Captain Sheridan to do a stealth investigation, then likely Sheridan was close with President Santiago. Haig and Santiago both knew Sheridan was one of the good guys and highly competent, so he was next on the list if something happened to Sinclair, even if the optics looked bad with him being the “star killer”. Clark may have known far less about Sheridan but knew the star killer label might antagonize the aliens and was happy to appoint him. In effect, Haig pulled one over on Clark. Not sure why I dwelled on that after listening, but I did. As usual, enjoyed hearing all of your thoughts; I learn new things on each podcast.
