A labor of love

By Onetruegeorge - Sep 13 2019
Read more
This podcast is very obviously a labor of love made by people who are passionate about good science fiction. No ads, no annoying “personalities”, just a new short story every week with a short intro and outro from the producers. Some of the stories on here have stuck with me for years. Give it a listen!

Fantastic SF
