TalktCast450 – It’s Rusty

One of the things we love best about attending Comic Book Conventions are the people we get to meet.  We get to sit down with them in person and have fun conversations that never make it on to the podcast.  But these conversations never seem to do more than scratch the surface of who the […]

TalkCast 449 – Embrace the Weirdness That is Jackiem Joyner

Well it was bound to happen.  After 448 episodes we have become a music podcast.  Okay, not really.  But when you have a talented jazz performer who has moved into the realm of science fiction writing, you have to talk about the elephant in the room.  Especially when the “elephant” is having the opportunity to […]

TalkCast 448 – Is That Fry’s Head In a Jar? No, but, it could be….

  From time to time here on Sci Fi Saturday Night, we take a jump to the left.  We put aside science fiction for the world of science fact.  Every time we do we realize that the lines between the two blurs, which is as it should be.  Good science fiction should be predicated in, […]

TalkCast 447 – What If Schrodingers Cat Had Kittens

THE OPPENHEIMER ALTERNATIVE is an Alternate history novel by Robert J. Sawyer. The best part of an alternate history novel is when it is firmly founded in hard fact. one in which the historical accuracy of its roots is inviolate. The second best part is the moment at which it deviates and you’re not quite […]

TalkCast446 – The Song of Bernadette

In 2020 we thought the world was strangely similar to the first book in the Blue Helix saga, Sleepwater Beat, like we had seen this before? Well welcome to 2031 where everything old is old yet again but not. It is a confusing dystopian future, which we were left off in at the end of […]

TalkCast445 – Peace In the Face of Chaos

So. here’s what happens when you assume……99.99999995% of the time, you’re wrong. Welcome to the continuing saga of Nel Bently as told by the incomparable VS Holmes as we explore the third novel in the Nel Bently series Strangers, a series that takes place simultaneously on Earth, in space and on some other places yet […]

TalkCast 444 – The Many Worlds of Jay Mooers

In 2014 the comic world was introduced to The Twisted World of Jay Mooers’ Autumn Grey. At that point it was the beginnings of an interesting story about a place, kinda like here but kinda not…an in-between world that existed somewhere in the periphery of your vision…just when you think you see it, it blinks […]

TalkCast443 – The Wonderful World of Extraterrestrial Teenage Cats and Other Fun Stuff

The good news is, It’s a great day here in area 51 when we get to visit again with someone we really like and they have a new project to talk about. The better news is we are for some unknown reason STILL talking about aliens on earth and the agencies that support them. Our […]

Talkcast 442 – It’s All About The Reptiles

The fun thing about this podcast is that we never know where we are going to be introduced to our next guest.  This includes social media platforms we would not associate with science fiction or fantasy.  I am looking at you LinkedIn.  But that is where we met Dominik M Kirtaime and learned about his […]

Talkcast 440- A little Handwavium with Richard Paolinelli

In this episode we get to, once again, touch base with multi-talented friend of the show  Richard  Paolinelli. As is usual when Richard comes on, whatever main topic we were planning to discuss becomes part of an auditory omelet, whereby we know where we want to end up but actually have no idea what’s inside […]
