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.

Top Notch, Playful Research

Love this show. Rose combines wit and humor with the intriguing, sometimes dour predictions of the future. Production is high quality, making the storytelling aspects strong, which is backed up by interviews, citations, and more. Check this out and keep an ear open for her “little references,” I swear they’re in there!

Excellent host and content, horrendous intros

It’s an amazing podcasts, but the openings always being the same/a minor twist is annoying. I also miss the episodes being 30-40 minutes long, that time is perfect for my commute. Now, I have to skip the beginning, because I hate the future parts, and get to the science, pause it once my commute is done and pick it back up... eventually. Rose is a wonderful host and the science is fascinating, but I think the changes/miniseries she’s started make it a bit boring for me and I stopped listening as consistently and stopped recommending it to people.

A gateway podcast

This is the podcast that finally got me into podcasts after people telling me to listen to them for the past decade. Rose does an exceptional job at producing, research, editing, and entertaining. The guests she has are always relevant and accurate. I love this and if you are at all interested in science/technology/the future in any way then start listening to this podcast. It Has made my commutes something I look forward to.
