This week, I'm joined by Erik Stadnik, to chat about a pleasantly open moment with the Fifth Doctor from 1982's Kinda. We discuss what makes the Doctor a good traveller, how we interact with people aren't like us, and why it's good to confront the things that live in the dark places.

- Michel de Montaigne - Wikipedia — Michel Eyquem de Montaigne, Lord of Montaigne (28 February 1533 – 13 September 1592) was one of the most significant philosophers of the French Renaissance, known for popularizing the essay as a literary genre. His work is noted for its merging of casual anecdotes and autobiography with serious intellectual insight; his massive volume Essais contains some of the most influential essays ever written.
- Not we - TARDIS Wikia — The term "not we" (sometimes rendered Not We and not-we) is used by fandom to indicate the casual viewer of Doctor Who. Sometimes, it simply means "anyone who is not an obsessive Doctor Who fan", and does not assume that the people described actually watch Doctor Who at all.
