Ninja Mountain 29: Rise of the Replicants

A hell of hot metal and hate powered circuitry breaks loose like an avalanche of mixed metaphors this week on the Mountain. With Jeremy away at Gencon gathering the audio-fruits of the season the remaining Mountaineers do their best to cope with the robot apocalypse sans congenial host, and welcome in our new robot overlords with answers to the following questions:

Via email, Aaron Anderson ( asks how we keep as busy with work as we all seem to do.

And for once we come up with some of our own content, and ruthlessly interrogate ourselves like souless killing machines sent from the future about how we learn new skills, programs and techniques whilst juggling all the other activities we're forced to enact by our cold silicon masters.

On the show this week are Patrick, Andy, Socar and Jon, with guest soundbites from Ralph and Anne

Plus a special guest two line appearance from the mighty Kiwi deathmecha Ben Wootten!

Ninja Mountain Episode #28 - 1)talk 2)??? 3)PROFIT!!

OK, the episode is a tiny bit late, but after the earth is swallowed whole by giant space lampreys, who's really going to care?

What the horrible space eels WILL remember is that this episode features a great conversation between Ralph Horsley and special guest Steven Belledin, questions from listeners, and lots of conversation with Jon, Socar, Jeremy, Ralph and Patrick. And they will regret having swallowed our planet so callously and destroyed such entertaining artists, and perhaps... Just maybe... They'll think twice before doing it again to another beautiful blue planet somewhere else in the cosmos.

Though, frankly, we doubt it.
