    Season 4 Episode 4 - D'Evolution

    Ca-Caw! Ca-Caw! Tookie Tookie!

    In episode 4, the guys discuss the 2001 movie Evolution. Can an object from space bring a life form onto our planet? Can we do the same to inhabit other planets? Is it possible for non carbon-based life to exist? You can also find out why Stobbie is top of the leaderboard this season.

    Do you agree with the guys? Are they on the right evolutionary path or deserving of the Head & Shoudlers treatment? Get in touch at thescienceoffictionpodcast@gmail.com or find us on the socials

    Season 4 Episode 3 - Core Blimey!

    Season 4 Episode 3 - Core Blimey!

    It's the third episode and second movie of our The Science of Fiction At The Movies season. This episode has the team talking about the 2003 movie The Core (and thankfully it is only ONE episode!) 

    Can the Earth's core stop spinning? If so, could we get down there to restart it? When will prospectors find us this Unobtanium? Will Stu manage to watch one of the movies all the way through this season? Answers to these and so much more in this episode.

    Do you agree with the guys? Did the movie get you deep down or did it cut you to the core? Get in touch at thescienceoffictionpodcast@gmail.com or find us on the socials

    Season 4 Episode 2 - Cures What's Alien You

    Welcome to everyone's favourite sequel about everyone's favourite sequel.

    In episode 2, the guys continue their exploration into the film Aliens. All the questions that weren't answered in part 1 might be asked in this episode, they might not. And when one of our listeners pulls a PK Dick move, the talk soon turns to AI again. How close are we to producing sonic, electronic ball-breakers?

    All this and more in episode 2 of The Science of Fiction At The Movies

    Do you agree with the guys? Will they fry half a city with this puppy or are they on the express elevator to hell, going down!? Get in touch at thescienceoffictionpodcast@gmail.com or find us on the socials

    Season 4 Episode 1 - Where Does The Poo Go?

    Season 4 Episode 1 - Where Does The Poo Go?

    Dr Forgan returns, dragging Stu and Stobbie along with him!

    The guys decided to look at the science behind their favourite bad movies this season, but with last week's announcement about evidence of life on Venus, they quickly turned to looking at Aliens! (Yes, the second one). Be warned, Stu came prepared with notes...

    How does one survive hyper-sleep for 57 years? What stops Xenomorphs from melting from the inside out? Is this film really worth all the hype? Is Bishop a synthezoid?

    All of this plus much more in the first of a two-parter on Aliens.

    Do you agree with the guys? Have they stayed frosty or is it game over man? Get in touch at thescienceoffictionpodcast@gmail.com or find us on the socials
