Pod 217: Go Deeper into Anderfandom with James Swallow

James Swallow isn't just a fan of the classic Supermarionation series like Thunderbirds, Stingray, and Captain Scarlet– he also followed Gerry's career through shows like Terrahawks and Space Precinct. Plus, he opines on the cosmic nature of Space: 1999, explains how the Anderson shows from his childhood influenced his action-packed storytelling, and chooses which Anderson show he would most like to write for.

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'.
