Are there any Rods who even listen to this podcast?
This week we argue about what Science Fiction is. I mean, you’d expect us to do that when the podcast started, when we first started watching Blake’s 7, an allegedly seminal Science Fiction Television Show. But we didn’t until now, so that’s kind of fun. It’s The Keeper, written by Alan Prior and aired on March 27, 1979.
