    Foundation 03: The Mathematician’s Ghost

    Rob, Alex, Mike, and Leul are digging some of the unique parts of the TV version, like Imperial Cloning™ but it’s still not clear how things will play out for The Foundation on Terminus, and what seems to be an impending crisis.

    Foundation 02: Preparing to Live

    Foundation 02: Preparing to Live

    In this discussion, Rob is joined by Alex Monroe who has just recently read the book and brings a fresher memory to some of the comparisons. We also try to step back and discuss the show on its own and some of the story developing in between Trantor and Terminus, which was not in the original book.

    Foundation 01: The Emperor’s Peace

    It’s finally here! Actually, a there are a few episodes out already. Apple surprised us with two episodes on the first day, but we’ll be spacing everything out one week at a time on this podcast.







    We’ll also try to stick to just a short half hour chat on these, unless there’s an appetite for more, let us know!







    In this discussion, Rob is joined by Mike Rapin and we try to recall what we read years ago and also react to some of the totally new direction the TV series is taking us.

    Tune in next week for our discussion about the first episode. If you want to join us live, then hop on our Discord here: https://discord.gg/hjexstBZ

Rob’s voice

I could listen to this guy talk all day

Entirely objectively speaking: the perfect podcast

I love this show! So fascinating to hear about other people, especially Rob :)

Hang out with some friends

I love this show just for the laid back, hangout feel. The show is super well edited with clips of music, information, and other background stuff that enhances the entire listening experience. The broad range of topics gives enough information to satisfy some curiosity and encourage you to learn beyond the discussion in each episode.
