The Cast Files: The X-Files Podcast

Welcome to The Cast Files, an X-Files Podcast through a Modern Lens. Join Kristen Riley and Daive Reed as they experience the unexplained alongside Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Coming of age in the 90s they‘re constantly shocked at smoking inside, the prevalence of repressed memories and the Satanic Panic, prolific religious and other magic, amongst other things that may or may not age well. From aliens to cryptids, ghosts to shadow government agencies, will they remain skeptical or become true believers?

Show Notes!

This week we have an X-philer's dream! A two-parter, myth-arch that keeps you guessing!

We mention Piper Maru, Gillian Anderson's daughter, and her site.

I'd be remise to mention MICHAEL BUBLE is in this episode. You know, the bubbly water commercial guy ;) 

We also revisit The Blessing Way. If you don't care for PodBean as your podcast catcher, we're available wherever you listen to podcasts. In case, you're blanking on which episode that was, it's the season 3 premier! Ad Daive says, "Mulder goes on a... vision quest? Scully walks to her mom's. And we wonder how long of a walk was that."

Honestly, just go watch this two-parter. It's totally worth it. Nicholas Lea returns in all his gorgeous glory. Daive is starting to come around ;) 

Gotta say, this is my favorite X-files two-parter or double feature since season 1's Squeeze/Tooms double feature. 

 

What's your favorite X Files two-parter? Who are your favorite TXF recurring characters? Are you going to see Nicholas Lea in Canada this month at the X-Files Fan Fest?
