    Graphic Policy Radio Talks Doctor Who

    Graphic Policy Radio returns after a breif hiatus, and in this episode we go Who! Tonight, we're discussing Doctor Who, focusing on Titan Comics' various series featuring the many recent doctors. We're joined tonight with special guests Amanda Mayer and Chris Reid.


    Amanda Mayer is a writer, director, and comedian, as well as a long-time Whovian.  She can currently be seen performing with musical improv teams Goats and Orphan Alley around NYC.


    Chris Reid is a lifelong nerd, avid gamer (both digital and physical) and consumer of sci-fi and fantasy entertainment in its various forms. He runs a solo law practice in Brooklyn, working largely with indie game developers and others in the game industry helping them navigate the various legal issues that crop up in their business (and sometimes procrastinating by playing his client's games). Chris watched the occasional old-school Doctor Who as a kid when it was on TV, but didn't really get into the Whoniverse (don't call it that) until about 2008, at which point he became an instant obsessive fan.
