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.

Amazing Podcast

The best way to describe this podcast is science fiction intertwined with reality! The host takes different hypotheticals of what the future would be like if an event, a disaster or a technological advancement came about. Then she talks to experts to see how these events would effect our society and the likelihood of these events occurring. I love how open minded she is, that has to be one of the main reasons why I keep coming back and listening to more episodes!

All the fun of a time travel sci-fi with in depth topics

This podcast is real edutainment. I wish it ran year round. It would be a great format for a full production tv show. The host/producer Rose Eveleth does a great job concentrating a consent with dramatic story and then guiding us deep into the topic with experts. Thank you. I have loved each of this season’s mini series, even the Snowglobe Show.
