Description

Our purpose is to engage our listeners on a journey through 'Science of Fiction' that is both educational and entertaining.


We investigate the science fiction themes from within popular book, cinema and media titles before exploring these concepts as a reality with experts and scientists.


We source content, books and media from leading publishing houses, book stores and tv/movie/streaming companies. We source our quality content, facts and research from worldwide Universities, labs and academic papers.
