A Science Fiction Father/Daughter podcast. We called it "History in Reverse", because history is about the past and science fiction is about the future, so it's like history but going in reverse direction. Get it?

Caroline, the daughter, got hooked on science fiction by Richie, the father, when we both used to watch Star Trek Voyager. Captain Janeway is still Caroline's favorite captain.

Starting this podcast is part of a secret plan by Richie to get Caroline to read books by Stanislaw Lem. So, far so good!

    History in Reverse Sci-Fi Podcast Ep. 12: Ambiguous Dystopias

    History in Reverse Sci-Fi Podcast Ep. 12: Ambiguous Dystopias

    In this episode we discuss two short stories: "The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas" by Ursula LeGuin and "Truth of Fact, Truth of Feeling" by Ted Chiang. These two stories are not your classic dystopias, but stories with some dystopian features. We discuss how they differ from some of the other dystopias we read, in what ways they are dystopias and we consider the metaphors these stories represent.

    History in Reverse Sci-Fi Podcast Ep. 11: "Handmaid's Tale"

    Welcome back to the 11th episode of "History In Reverse". Continuing with dystopias, we discuss Margaret Atwood's "Handmaid's Tale". We both read the book, but haven't seen the movies or the recent TV series. We discuss the plot, themes (of course!!) and some deep moral question, for which we do not have answers.

    History In Reverse Sci-Fi Podcast Ep. 9 "Return From The Stars"

    History In Reverse Sci-Fi Podcast Ep. 9 "Return From The Stars"

    Welcome back to "History in Reverse", a father/daughter science fiction podcast. In this episode we continue our dystopia series with Stanislaw Lem's "Return From The Stars". This one turns out to be a more ambiguous dystopia/utopia. We discuss the plot and compare it to "Brave New World". We both liked the opening chapter, but were somewhat undecided on the rest of the book. As in "Solaris" Lem is not that into women characters.

    History in Reverse Sci-Fi Podcast Ep. 8 "1984"

    History in Reverse Sci-Fi Podcast Ep. 8 "1984"

    Welcome back to History in Reverse, a father/daughter science fiction podcast. The next book in our dystopia series is George Orwell's "1984". It's a classic political dystopia, that has had large influence on our culture. We discuss the plot and then consider if this was the most depressing book ever written.

    We briefly mention another podcast, "Classical Things You Should Know", which also covered "Brave New World".
