Shoreline of Infinity’s Soundwave

Episode Six

June 11, 2019

Welcome Travellers,

In this episode of Soundwave we're keeping it simple. One poem, one story, one interview, one song, minimum waffle from myself.

The reasons for that are twofold. Firstly,  I am being brazenly lazy. Secondly, the structure of this episode just doesn't lend itself to my waffling (if you do like my waffle about things like the correlation between sci-fi and cakes [see last episode] then there's still a bit at the end for you). The opening poem, short as it is, effectively lays out why sci-fi is so important and is something of a mission statement for the episode, if not the entirety of Soundwave.

It just didn't seem right to fill the gaps, and frankly nothing needed saying at that point so I've just decided to go straight into our nice, lengthy story that resonates with our own time. Certainly one to walk through your local wooded area to. I'm serious. Save this one up and go for a walk at the nearest convenient forest. You can thank me later.

Then we have a far reaching chat about science and science fiction on Sonic Space this episode between astrophysicist and SF author David L Clements and myself.

You might remember that we featured one of his stories on Episode Five, Something Fishy, narrated by Debbie Cannon.

It just flowed too nicely for me to waffle through. Don't worry though, I'm sure I'll feel the urge to ruin whatever excellent content we have next episode.

While I'm here, we’d really appreciate a kind review on iTunes, or indeed, whatever podcast platform you’re listening via.
