For a bunch of people that live in the USA’s hat, you do a really good podcast. This podcast could loosely be categorized as sci-fi, and most stories would fit that broad description. Most of the shows are stand-alone, yet some contain characters that exist from show to show. As a Canadian podcast, it is very well produced and pretty sanitized of overtly graphic sexuality, crass, foul language and the amount of gore in the stories. It’s an interesting podcast and definitely worth a listen for anyone interested in futurism, AI and the like. I hope you enjoy this show as much as I do!
