Pod 156: Michael Shanks Polishes Off 3 Years of the Podcast

This is a very special episode of the Gerry Anderson Podcast. Firstly Michael Shanks is back to tell us about how he went from being a filmmaker in High School making a web series in the early days of YouTube to getting a call from agents in Hollywood. His short film Rebooted features unique practical and digital visuals. Michael also explains how he almost included an Anderson-style marionette! Oh, and there's another reason it's special isn't there? It's the third anniversary!

Playing Officer Orrin in Gerry Anderson's last live action series 'Space Precinct' clearly wasn't enough to put Richard off the worlds of Gerry Anderson!

As well as co-hosting the Gerry Anderson Podcast and the almost-monthly Facebook, Twitch, Periscope and Youtube broadcast, FabLive, Richard has also taken parts in the audio series 'Terrahawks' and the pilot minisode for the forthcoming 'Gerry Anderson's Firestorm'.
