Leeson Fischer

is a podcaster known by Whovians and Rassifans everywhere for the award winning Radio Rassilon podcast. (1) Radio Rassilon is a British based Doctor Who podcast presented by co-creators Leeson and Harry Medium. Sardonic and irreverent, Radio Rassilon takes a lighthearted and sideways look at all things Doctor Who, and some more besides. Their clever conversations and witty retorts reveal their humor and deep love for the Doctor.

Rassilon’s facebook page describes Leeson as a frustrated nerd who wants to share his thoughts with the world. To further facilitate his need to share, Leeson added the unofficial Doctor Who podcast to his repertoire. He joined the podcast in 2012 to serve as one quarter of the hosting team. In addition to hosting podcasts, he can also be found at Dr Who conventions and fan events throughout England.

Who was the last person you told “I love you”? 
Leeson:  My son

What will you find in your refrigerator if you looked right now?

Do you have a secret identity and will you share it? We will not tell...
Leeson:  I once pretended to be another person in a pub across the other side of town. I would go in on a Tuesday and pretend to be this other chap. I created a back story, alternate career, the whole lot. It all became a bit messy when this other 'me' began making genuine friends and connections with people. I canned the experiment at that point. I hadn't really thought through the consequences. 

Is crying a sign of weakness or strength?
Leeson:  Weakness 

Do you remember the last time you saw a random act of kindness?

What is the last dream you remember and will you tell us about it?
Leeson:  The dream I remember the most is from my childhood. I dreamt that the Daleks invaded Earth by hiding inside cans of baked beans. When the cans were opened the Daleks would swell to full size and rampage around. This dream went on night after night, each night I would go to bed and get the next installment from right where the previous nights had left off.
