83. Seth Heasley: Hugos There Podcast

Coffee in Space

We take a short break this week to focus on reading science fiction in a more general way. Seth Heasley, host of the show, "Hugos There," joins me to talk about reading over 60 Hugo award winners (and counting). We discuss a lot of issues in this episode, but I think you'll appreciate Seth's thoughts on reading books from an era different than our own, with ethics that go along with that. “I like to think of the modern books as in conversation with the more classic ones.” Seth also talks with me about other podcasts that fans of the science fiction genre will enjoy, notably: Hugo GirlHugo and Nebula Readership PodcastScifi Sidebar (vintage woke statement)You can learn more about Seth Heasley's work at his show's website HERE.

We dig deep into the books politics around colonialism. And we ask what it would be like to live through a society that has everything it could want, but knows that it's no longer in charge of its own destiny.

168: "The Thaw" (VOY) with Seth Heasley

Random Trek

Seth Heasley, host of The Hugos There podcast, joins Scott to discuss Voyager’s “The Thaw” (VOY S2E23). Harry Kim isn’t the only clown on this episode. Topics include questioning the central premise of this episode (we recommend not doing this, the episode is better without too much thought), Voyager’s poor sound dampening, and the things that scare us all.
