Novum is not just a podcast about science fiction. It's an exploration of the intersection between reality and speculation. Each week, I examine the ways in which our world is coming to closely resemble those worlds from a science fiction novel or film. I want to prove that sci-fi is so much more than time travel and far-out galactic warfare. At its best, it provides an unusual, critical perspective on the present.



Novum is produced and hosted by Ari Brin. Original musical compositions for the program are composed by Christopher McIntyre. Novum broadcasts out of JAM Radio in Dundee, Scotland.
