Our first proper episode of August is part squee, part bitter rant, and part cringe-inducing horror. It’s like a Shaun and Jen cocktail laced with acid inside a Philip K. Dick pie…topped with whip cream, of course. (Don’t try to imagine what that would look like…)
In 4.7, we talk about why Another Earth is science fiction (and why the person who says it isn’t is a moron), Adam’s nifty news, the SF Gateway, and a few other fun things, such as how scientists are ruining science fiction and Jen’s slurpie habit. Tune in and enjoy!
