This was a podcast I used to do many years ago and I thought I would relaunch it.
Why science fiction and philosophy? Because they naturally go together. Philosophy has a long history of thought experiments going at least as far back as Socrates and his parable of the cave and science fiction has always been a vehicle for exploring ideas and themes that cannot be explored easily in a contemporary setting.
My own love of Philosophy is self taught and I am not a professional. My own background is that of a Christian religiously and a Libertarian politically so that will likely influence what I find interesting. However I love exploring and examining ideas and the Sci phi show provides a vehicle for me to do that.
The plan is to organize the show into 22 episode seasons with episodes going out weekly. The usual format for the show will be a discussion of some work of science fiction and the ideas contained within it. This will usually be a science fiction television show, movie or short story and my idea that is represented in it. There will be periodic worth reading or worth watching episodes that will examine a particular writer or director and what makes them interesting. There will also be some bonus content as I can arrange it.
If you have ideas for an episode or if you would like to offer feedback or something you would like me to cover then send me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org or leave at moment on our Facebook page Facebook.com/sciphishow or come over to the website sciphishow.com and that is phi with a p h.
