Could there ever be a fecal transplant black market? (Complicated, it wouldn’t, and yes, respectively, in case you’re curious.) Hosted and produced by award winning science journalist Rose Eveleth, each episode combines audio drama and journalism to go deep on potential tomorrows, and uncovers what those futures might really be like. The future is going to be weird, so let's get ready for it together.

Consistently brilliant and enlightening

Every episode is informative and entertaining. The dramatised future sets the stage and Rose with the various experts explain how and why this future may or may not come to pass. A must for anyone who wants to expand their thinking.

My new favourite podcast

I've been slowly working my way through all of the blacklist of this amazing podcast, I'm completely hooked!
I adore the beginning acted sections of the future and when Rose brings in scientists and experts on the topic I learn so much!
A friend put me onto the podcast and this is first time in my life where I'm genuinely considering being a Patreon! (I'm a grad school student soooo)

Excellent

“We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives.”

Amazing resource if you write speculative fiction. Steroids for the imagination.
