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.

Entertaining and interesting

Rose always does a great job laying out whatever scenario she's discussing and her sense of humor is subtle and hilarious. Give her a listen!

Entertaining and makes you think

Unlike any other podcast out there. This is a fun and entertaining dive into thought experiments and research. Each episode has a mini radio play that illustrates a theoretical future scenario, then interviews legitimate academic experts to explore the possibilities. Guests are highly qualified and The hosts does a great job tying it all together in an entertaining and educational way.

Rose basically does this work herself and puts out consistently quality content. She deserves recognition for the great work she does!
