Released monthly, the Social Sci-Fi Podcast takes a look at science-fiction and fantasy television and movies through the eyes of a social worker and her friends.
1970's Science Fiction
This time around we looked at science fiction in the 1970's. It all started with a conversation with a friend at work about the science fiction we grew up on. One of those ADHD conversations that starts with Star Trek, and ends up with Planet of the Apes, and "you know what other Science Fiction movie Charlton Hesston is in? Soylent Green."
Revolution of the Daleks
Lizz and her friends take a look at the Doctor Who New Year's Special, Revolution of the Daleks.
Good Omens, Pt. 2
Take a short break from the stress and have a listen. If you haven't already listened to part one check it out here first. You're about to listen to part two of a special two part episode. We watched and discussed the second three episodes of the Amazon Original miniseries Good Omens. We also discussed the book it was based on, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch. Written by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett and published in 1990.
Good Omens, Pt. 1
You're about to listen to part one of a special 2 part episode. We watched and discussed the first 3 episodes of the miniseries Good Omens. We also discussed the book, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch. Written by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett.
We talked about a little of the controversy surrounding the release, some of the easter eggs in the show to honor the late Terry Pratchett , and things that were missing or presented differently in the miniseries.
Cartoons with The Shake Ups
Hello, and welcome to another episode of Social Sci-Fi. This month, I invited The Shake Ups, a local band to the Geek Cave to watch and talk about cartoons. When I say local, I mean to Indianapolis, but they run all over the Midwest and perform catchy songs in costumes from their favorite cartoons. The Head Geek has had them on the Indiana Geeking Podcast a few times, and you are already familiar with Luisanna from year one of this podcast.
There is a little bit about year one, if you haven't listened go check them out, there are 10 regular episodes and 3 special episodes. I also give you a sneak peek into year two. It's still in the planning stages so there are details on a few and then a little rambling when I get to my list of ideas that aren't fully formed. Thanks for joining me, and I promise, there's lots of cool stuff coming up.
