I love your group discussions. Would love to have a multiple episode series reviewing Asimov’s Robot and Foundation series covering all of the older and newer books in the order of the story. The over arching story is fascinating and a unique history of the future The Caves of Steel The Naked Sun Robots of Dawn Robots and Empire Prelude to Foundation Forward the Foundation Foundation Foundation and Empire Second Foundation Foundations Edge Foundation and Earth

Great Conversations About Science Fiction and Fantasy

Discovered David Barr Kirtley’s podcast several years ago, and have been listening in ever since. David has interesting and purposeful conversations with the leading lights of science fictions and fantasy. I consistently learn a lot from the show, whether it’s a round table discussion of schlocky 80s dungeons and dragons movies or a conversation with a grand master of science fiction. I particularly enjoy the balance between screen, print, and gaming content, and welcome the exposure to great new material that has enriched my life.
