Boomers will be familiar with the late Ross Martin as the actor who, in the mid-1960s, played Artemus Gordon on tv’s THE WILD WILD WEST. But before that Ross acted in THE TWILIGHT ZONE. In 1978 Marc Zicree was 22 years old and just beginning the research that would lead him to write the book on Serling’s masterpiece, The Twilight Zone Companion. Marc conducted this interview (©2008 Marc Scott Zicree) with Ross Martin 30 years ago. It takes you backstage into the 1960s world of the working actor, and into the mind of Rod Serling who did more to define the world of television science fiction than anyone else before or since.

You can follow their exploits over on their site. Or you can sample their infectious (in a good way) goodness by listening in right here.

Laurence Walsh and Jack Bernstein were writer/producers on the Sci Fi Channel’s short-lived cult favorite THE DRESDEN FILES. But who cares about that? Jack is the comedy stud behind ACE VENTURA: PET DETECTIVE and for a while there Laurence made sure John Woo didn’t leave the house without his wallet, car keys and genius. Jack continues promulgating his offbeat sense of humor with MONK and, in this podcast, Laurence suffers through it.

Writer/Director Michael Nankin, one of Battlestar Galactica’s favorite directors, tells us how the series ends. Well, not really, but he does tell us how he threw out a script causing Ron Moore, David Eick and Mary McDonnell to love him forever. Really.
