Episode 10: That Classic Get ‘Em Fic

Brainwashed assassins! Castles in the Californian desert! We share our reactions to the Starsky and Hutch two-parter “The Set-Up”, and to follow up these bizarre episodes, we read the fanfic Mojave Crossing.  Published in a fanzine in 1977, it’s one of the earliest S&H fics, and after 40 years fans are still praising it. Why has this story stood the test of time?  Join us as we find out!

  1. Hey guys, I’m trying to find your podcast on Downcast, or failing that, on iTunes, but it doesn’t seem to be available that way. Any chance of that? I can work around SoundCloud, but if it’s not too difficult… (Or maybe I’m missing something really obvious!)

    Either way, thanks for bringing this podcast to us! So glad to have it to enjoy 🙂

    1. Thank you for listening, Goodwin! I’ve been meaning to post the podcast to iTunes and other podcast sites for awhile, but it involves setting up RSS feeds and I admit I’ve let fear that I’ll somehow mess it up push me into procrastination. But I really do want to make this available on other sites, so I’ll try to bite the bullet soon and do it. And I’ll let you know when I do! —Monica
