DOCTOR WHO GUESTS:
Guest announcements coming very soon!
Courtland Lewis is a person of many interests: a life-long Doctor Who fan, philosopher, historian, author, and musician. His philosophical writings focus on issues in ethics and social/political philosophy, and his popular culture writings focus on the same issues, as they appear in Doctor Who, Star Trek, Farscape, Psych, Monk, and many other films. He’s the editor of Doctor Who and Philosophy: Bigger on the Inside and More Doctor Who and Philosophy: Regeneration Time. Courtland is dedicated to teaching others how self-reflection and thoughtfulness are the keys to liberation, self-fulfillment, and flourishing. He has a PhD in Philosophy, and is currently an Instructor of Philosophy and Religion at Owensboro Community and Technical College. His latest book is The Way of the Doctor: Doctor Who’s Pocketbook Guide to the Good Life, published May, 2017. Find his books at his Amazon author page.
Joshua Wilson is an associate editor for Mad Norwegian Press, a publisher of Doctor Who reference guides including the celebrated About Time series, Running Through Corridors and AHistory. Mad Norwegian also has a range of essay books pertaining to women and fandom, including the Hugo-nominated Chicks Dig Time Lords, Whedonistas! and Chicks Dig Comics. Appropriately, Wilson met future Mad Norwegian Editor-in-Chief Lars Pearson during a Doctor Who trivia match in 1998 (Lars won, battered and bruised, after a fierce battle of wills) which led to a consultation on I, Who, Mad Norwegian’s first reference guide on Doctor Who and a position as an associate editor.
Wilson also co-hosts the popular Doctor Who podcast, The Oncoming Storm, which focuses on Doctor Who spinoff media. Along with his other hosts (including WHOlanta Doctor Who track director Ashley Raburn!), Josh spends each episode looking at the best (and sometimes worst) books, audios, and comics featuring the Doctor.
Josh is an Atlanta native whose wife and two children are loving enough, somehow, to put up with all of his Doctor Who nonsense, although he secretly indoctrinated both kids into Doctor Who fanatics, much to the chagrin of his wife.
Robin Burks is an entertainment writer, published author, avid con-goer and cosplayer. She currently writes for ScreenRant, The Things and FanGirlConfessions.com. Robin is also the author of a series of speculative fiction novels: Zeus, Inc.; The Curse of Hekate; and Return of The Titans. In 2014, Indie Reader named the protagonist of that series, Alex Grosjean, as one of its Top Five Smart, Strong and Relatable Female Characters. Robin, who currently lives in Missouri with her five cats, loves all things French and has a serious obsession with Doctor Who. You can find out all about Robin by visiting her website on her Amazon Author Page.

Geeking out about our favorite Time Lord, one story at a time. Earth Station Who is a show dedicated to the culture around the BBC icon Doctor Who. Join Mike F, Mike G, Jennifer Hartshorn and Mary Ogle as we explore the 50-year history and fandom surrounding the Doctor with reviews, interviews, and general discussions about the show. Be prepared for surprises, though; you never know WHO might pop up as a guest on Earth Station Who!
Jennifer Hartshorn is the producer and host of Earth Station MCU, and a co-host of Earth Station Who. A lifelong Whovian and gamer, Twelve is her Doctor, she’s #TeamIronMan, #TeamSnart, and she’s still in mourning for Peggy Carter. When not podcasting, collecting female action figures, or watching altogether too much TV, Jennifer teaches writing at the Savannah College of Art and Design and studies Rhetoric and New Media at Old Dominion University.
Lt. Moxie Magnus is a shimmering, glowing star in the firmament of the United Federation of Planets. Through space age sling-shot technology, this seven and a half foot tall glamazon (mostly hair and heels) has come rocketing back to us from the future, dragging some laughs with her along the way! In the 23rd century, she serves as the Chief Cosmetology Officer aboard the USS Enterprise under the command of James T. Kirk. There, she navigates the world of serially dating redshirts and keeping the fleet in regulation bouffants. Here, in the 21st century, she writes about her adventures, with tongue firmly placed in cheek, in her blog, Moxie Magnus: Star Trek Cosmetologist. Her mission is to tackle each of the episodes of the original series with her own brand of space humor! Moxie was born in space, grew up a human slave in the Orion Syndicate and walked the runways of Paris before graduating top of her class at Starfleet Academy. She is the only cadet in history to pass the Kobayashi Hairdo, the no-win Starfleet master xenocosmetology exit exam (and she didn’t cheat). Her thesis, “Zero-G Styling Technology: Captain, We Have Lift-off”, is still recognized as the seminal work in its field. Although she has often been told “In space, no one can hear you, queen”, that hasn’t stopped her from entertaining fans and the fleet both in and out of this world. She’s even gotten a few laughs from the Vulcan High Council. In her spare time, this dedicated Star Trek drag queen enjoys cataloging unicorn species, looking at pictures of cats on the internet and trying out new replicated food cube recipes. Her favorite movies are Beach Blanket Bingo, Gidget and Pon Far Surf Party.
