If you like science and/or hard science fiction, then episode 17 is right up your alley. Mike Brotherton joins us to talk about the intersection between science and science fiction, hard science fiction, and much more. There’s also a brief discussion from us on the Hugos, and a new question of the week in poll format! So tune in and enjoy!
Question of the Week:
We’ve got another poll for you, and we’ve gone all the way to the end of the silly spectrum to keep things interesting.
If you’d like to give a more detailed answer to the question, you can email it to skiffyandfanty [at] gmail [dot] com or send us a voicemail at 206-203-1686! You can also leave a comment here or follow us on twitter. We’d love to hear your creative responses!
