The Skiffy and Fanty Show 5: Zombies, Twilight, and a Dash of Crazy

13 Jun
Episode #5 is a little shorter than the last few, but that’s because we have a special main event, which you’ll have to discover by listening (plus, the tension between Adam and Shaun gets bigger and better!).

The question of the week is:  Do you think science fiction must have accurate science to be called science fiction?  Or do you think that the science must be integral to the plot/story for something to be called science fiction?  Feel free to email your answers 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.

Note:  The first attempt to record this episode ended in disaster due to some unusual technological glitch.  We’ve since re-recorded the news and ending bits.  Hopefully it turned out okay!

Intro and News (0:00 – 12:07):
Main Event:  Interview w/ Neil Trusso, Kelly Parks, and Vernon Mortensen (12:08 – 34:48):

The End (34:49 – 42:46)

That’s all, folks!  Thanks for listening!

    I have to say – I’m utterly terrified of what might be done to Diamond Age in the hands of SyFy. They ruin so many wonderful things. That said, I’m a huge fan of Eureka so maybe there’s hope.

      We can only hope that something good comes of it. But don’t expect it…

    As for the question (I know, I’m terrible at only leaving one comment) – Accurate science is not necessary for a book to be Science Fiction. It’s generally what I prefer, but I’ve read some amazing Science Fiction that is totally full of crap. There’s a reason they call the stuff with REAL science “Hard Sci-fi”, ya dig?

    Thanks for your insight. I think Shaun and I may have a knock-out, drag-down brawl when it comes to this subject. I can’t wait!
