Oi! Spaceman: Adventures in Media Criticism
Vampire Rocks and Secret Lesbians (The Stones of Blood)

In this episode, Shana and Daniel discuss a recent bit of nerd culture misogyny/blindness, then move on to the third part of the Key to Time: The Stones of Blood. Discussions revolve around the relationship between Romana and the Fourth Doctor, spreading into Romana's acceptance by the other women in the story, and whether or not the Cessair of Diplos received a punishment that fit the crime. Also: what's the deal with Romana's shoes?
