Guaranteed something to listen to

I wait with baited breath and wild anticipation for every new episode. Eric Molinski has covered so many topics of sci-fi fantasy culture that are near and dear to my heart (see ALL of the Star Wars episodes), as well as exploring facets of topics I didn’t know yet that I liked (the alternate movie posters). I credit him for my resurgence into tabletop gaming and RPGs. And every so often. Eric comes up with something so off the wall that I can’t help but be fascinated (the Alice in Wonderland participatory theatre episode). And now that the back catalog has returned, there is more than enough to listen to!

The podcast for every nerd

I can’t recommend this podcast enough, truly. No one else is talking about sci-fi and fantasy in this medium the way this guy is. I recommend it for all nerds and creatives in the sff scope, or those looking for an insight into that sphere. Each episode is a delightful dive into a subject within this field, and I’ve found myself riveted by each and constantly learning new things. Give it a listen, you won’t be disappointed.
