Interviews with the actors, writers, producers, directors, stunt people, and special effects artists who made
The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman possible week after week.
Case Files will be a series of interviews with the actors, writers, producers, directors and stunt people who made our two bionic shows possible in the 70s. First up is an interview with actor/writer James McMullan (SMDM: "The Thunderbird Connection" and BW: "Kill Oscar 3" & "The Martians Are Coming, The Martians Are Coming")
After a summer hiatus, Cyborgs: A Bionic Podcast returns with all new episodes. First up, John and Paul sit down for their next Case File. They interview actor Rick Lenz (SMDM: "The Return of The Bionic Woman" and BW: "Welcome Home, Jaime", and "The Vega Influence") about his career and his memoir, North of Hollywood.
A new Case File focuses on actor, voiceover artist, and professional whistler Guerin Barry. Guerin talks about his role on The Bionic Woman as the voice of the Alex 7000 computer in the episode, "Doomsday is Tomorrow". In addition, he talks about his time with the group Sha Na Na, his appearances in various movies and television shows, his career as a professional whistler, plus a whole lot more.
This time the Case File opens for actor and musician Robbie Rist. Robbie talks with John and Paul about his career, his love of music, and his voiceover work. He speaks fondly of working with Lindsay Wagner in The Bionic Woman, comments on "The Cousin Oliver" factor, and says why Doc McStuffins is one of the best gigs he's ever worked on.
In this Case File, John and Paul sit down and talk with actor Tom Schanley. To bionic fans, he played Michael Austin in The Return of The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman, but there is so much more as John and Paul discover in this interview. We talk about his desire to be an actor and his family support, his first roles, and his Six Million Degrees of Star Trek Separation besides his obvious appearance on Enterprise.
“It’s really an open door in Hollywood if you have what they need. And what they need is smart people who are prepared and who are willing to work hard. If you have those things going for you, there’s no reason you can’t succeed. But if you’re sitting around waiting for them to call you, guess what - they’re busy. Tenacity, persistence, and don’t be afraid to do something a little outside the box.” — Bob McCullough
CODE SNOW WHITE: "Goldie" himself - Richard Anderson - joins the podcast to share his story of becoming an actor, the film that redefined his Hollywood status, and the role that would forever endear him to a generation. So ditch your socks and grab some sun - it's time to get the flock out of here.
