X-Philes Talk X-Files first hit the airwaves in May 2015. The intention behind the show was simple: to celebrate a show that meant a lot of us both growing up and ever since – and to encourage excitement for its then-forthcoming revival, Season 10, which aired in early 2016.

Over the course of 44 episodes, we discussed the entire history of the show (and two movies at length) then gleefully dissected and debated each of the new episodes as they aired on a week-by-week basis.

Since March 2016, however, the podcast has fallen silent. Now, with Season 11 back on our screens, The X-Files has once again been resuscitated by Fox, and so I’m reopening X-Philes Talk X-Files on my own authority.

Each week, I’ll be joined by the crew from X-Files News and together we’ll nitpick the scientific inaccuracies of the spartan virus, Scully’s hair color, and non-fatal rocket blasts to the face.

If you enjoy hearing us talk X-Files, then please consider supporting the show by making a donation and in return we’ll give you access to an exclusive bonus episode recorded in December 2017 where we pick apart the two recently released Audible X-Files series Cold Cases and Stolen Lives, based on the X-Files comic books written by Joe Harris.

So here’s how you listen:
