Browncoats and Geek musicians Marc Gunn and Mikey Mason rewatch episodes of Firefly to find themes and inspiration for crafting songs inspired by Joss Whedon's cult classic TV series.

Welcome to In the 'Verse. We love writing songs about Firefly. So we're gonna podcast how we write songs. Browncoats are creative people. So we want you involved in the creative process.

Please help us to #KeepFireflyFlyin by sharing this podcast with your fellow Browncoats!

Oct 2, 2021

In the ‘Verse is back with a brand new season. We’re gonna write songs inspired by other shows and movies. Plus, we will take an in depth look at the Big Damn movie. Join us as we talk about Season 2.


MARC: My name is Marc Gunn, the creator of the Firefly Drinking Songs show.

MIKEY: And I’m Mikey Mason, creator of the Beer Powered Time Machine Podcast and currently the MIKEYtalks podcast.

MARC: This is episode ZERO of our new 10 episode season of the In The Verse Podcast..

Mikey: Since we are, sadly, out of episodes of Firefly to discuss and write about, we’ll be finding inspiration in episodes of other media; TV shows, Comic Books, Cartoons, maybe even video games?

MARC: As always, you can support us in this and other creative endeavors by supporting Mikey at

We're gonna write songs inspired by some of our other fandoms. We'll start with the episode "Blink" from the TV show Doctor Who. We will announce each episode we plan to explore as we go.

We also plan to watch the Rankin & Bass animated cartoon The Hobbit, an episode of The Mandalorian, more Doctor Who episodes, an episode of the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon from the 80s, an episode of Peaky Blinders and Ripper Street. Plus, we will write a song inspired by the graphic novel, Shepherd's Tale, about Shepherd Book and we will write a song about the Big Damn Movie, Serenity.

We would love your help picking more episodes from some of these shows. If you have one that you think we should watch, drop us an email.
