On this episode of the Anywhere But Here Podcast, Ant and Tom are joined by Ande Case, a writer and producer of independent films. The most recent, a horror inflected short film called ‘Sunday Morning’ was released recently, so he joined the guys to talk about the challenges and rewards of indie filmmaking among other topics.

This week the DeLorean and TARDIS unite to bring you a cross over show between Anywhere But Here and Nerd Church. This is the second half of that show, so to hear what happened in the first half go to www.nerdchurchpodcast.com or find them on iTunes etc and subscribe to their show.
On this week’s podcast we answer the burning question of which would win in a drag race between the DeLorean from Back to the Future and the TARDIS from Dr Who. The results of which will shock and amuse in equal parts. We also get a definitive explanation of gun ownership, straight from the mouths of those win guns and whose right it is to bear arms, which should lay the issue to rest on this show once and for all. Ant and Tom also raise the case of the grandfather who mistook another girl for his daughter, at her primary school, and managed to take her from the school to the doctors who prescribed her liquid paracetamol and back again without questions being asked until the girl got home and showed the medicine to her parents!
The Nerd Church Clergy take part in the ABCs this week and show off their nerd credentials covering such topics as Warriors, Warp Speed, Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?, Watchmen and a Wizard Based drinking game. Ant talks about a zombie based raio-play style podcast called We’re Alive. There is also much language based fun and mickey-taking!
Tom also plugs his charity challenge of climbing the 3 highest peaks in the UK in 24 hours. You can give via this link: www.justgiving.com/RPOthreepeaks
We all hope you have as much fun listening to this podcast and the one over at Nerd Church as we all had recording them.
Ant and Tom decide to catch up on a few of the news stories they’ve missed out on in the last couple of weeks. Because of the banked episodes and themed episodes that have been recorded in the last couple of months there have been stories sent in by listeners that have been put on the back burner.
So, we discuss the reaction to the iPhone 5S and 5C, what the difference actually is and whether it’s worth buying it or another brand of phone altogether. Then, there are British people having sex with Land Rovers, kebab shop counters and goats, a sky scraper melts a car in London, a woman gets slung out of McDonalds in Oxfordshire for injecting herself… with insulin for her diabetes, while, in America, a woman attacks a drive-thru worker for not being able to sell her Chicken McNuggets.
The state of Iowa has allowed legally blind people the right to own firearms in which Ant and Tom debate whether people with visual impairments should own guns at all. There is terrifying 3 metre long Bobbit Worm that can cut a fish on half and could be living in an aquarium near you. NASA also respond to a 7 year old’s letter asking if he can be an astronaut one day, which is really heart warming and a great way to end the show.
In the ABCs this week Tom talks about his love of Transformers and the travesty which are Michael Bay’s films and And thanks the listeners/viewers who have been contributing recently. Thank you.
This week Ant and Tom have a fairly news heavy show, covering the death of Glee actor, Cory Monteith, the riots in Belfast, the acquittal of George Zimmerman, safety in Formula 1 and the victory of Andy Murray at Wimbledon. While discussing these they try to get to the bottom on American gun laws and Irish sectarianism… nothing is resolved!
Tom quizzes Ant on weird Spring and Summer traditions in the UK, we find out what type of cheese is the best for rolling down hills, how to summon invertebrates and who would win in a race between a human and a farm animal among other strange competitions held in small UK towns and villages.
Only Ant had an ABC this week (because Tom was out on a stag do last night) and he presents a US astrophysicist, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, while we talk about him we find we are all made of stars – star children, if you will!
