Good for Sci-Fi Addicts

Focused mainly on media sci-fi (movies and Tv as opposed to books) this is an enjoyable frequent show that includes commentary an interviews. I pick whether I will listen based on the subject simply because I no longer have the time to listen to every episode. I enjoy the team that's been put together and I like the call-in show as well. Full of characters.

Late to the party but enjoying the back catalog!

I subscribed to The Babylon Podcast, Slice of SciFi, and Writers, After Dark recently after a great friend mentioned them to me. Wow, did I miss out, but I am super grateful to Summer and the supporters of Slice of SciFi for making the back catalog available! Summer and collaborators have produced a huge catalog of awesome author, cast, staff, and other interviews, along with their insightful commentary, on a vast variety of subjects. Babylon 5 fans are very well served, of course, but I am blown away by Summer’s explorations with her podcast collaborators and guests in other shows, books, and authors!

Highly recommend! Check out the back catalog of many, many hours of some of the best interviews I have heard!

Needs more sci if

It’s becoming more of a horror podcast then a sci-fi podcast I do not like it when they mix the two together I love horror too so don’t get me wrong but I want Sci fi on a sci-fi podcast
