Flash Forward is a show about possible (and not so possible) future scenarios. What would the warranty on a sex robot look like? How would diplomacy work if we couldn’t lie? 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.

Best ads ever

Flash Forward is a great way to stop and think about what the future might look like. But it’s so much more, Rose Eveleth talks to experts about the current state of the art and dives into the history connected.
Oh and those ads every podcast has that you skip through - don’t - because Rose treats those ads as just another subject to research and analyse which makes them really interesting.
Really happy to recommend this podcast.

Professional and entertaining

Though the futures Rose takes us to tend to be darker than I personally prefer, she and the experts she interviews are interesting guides to it. The opening vignettes, while occasionally cheesy, are generally a good way to hook the audience in to the topic at hand.
