Science Friction: Are We Alone In The Universe?

Science Friction:
Are We Alone In The Universe?

Show Notes

Science fiction makes us bold about exploring so we can feel less alone when we imagine a future world where there are infinite diversities, infinite combinations. In the future, there’s always hope we will lead a less lonely existence and find signs of life that we aren’t alone.
 
In this episode, we talk to: 
 
Rod Faulkner, a science fiction fan who grew up in the South and became a fan after watching Nichelle Nichols (Lieutenant Uhura) on the original Star Trek. He discusses how science fiction explores race relations
 
Sean Redmond, professor of screen and design at Deakin University, Australia and author of Celebrity, Liquid Space: Science Fiction Film and Television in the Digital Age who talks about the futuristic lonely cities seen in Blade Runner and Minority Report, 
 
Tony Tellado, producer/host of Sci Fi Talk who explores why so many immigrants and outsiders were drawn to science fiction.
