THE SCI-FI PODCAST EP 37: Life (2017) and Displacement (2017)

Missing William Solo Jr., fighting a small baby for command of the mic, and covering two unrelated movies? It’s all a day in the life of the Sci-Fi Podcast crew. On this episode, Ryan “Rybo” Welling pops in for a visit and discusses giving Station! a medal for winning a fight on the internet.

Mattroid and Brain discuss the recently released Life (2017) and whether or not it’ll improve or make your own life worse for watching it.

And later in the show, the two are joined by Station! and baby Ripley for a hilarious detailing of the movie Displacement (2016) and discover that the movie is tied to a very provocative cable network.

Did you enjoy either of these movies? Find them repulsive? Let us know in the comments section.

THE SCI-FI PODCAST EP 35: The Gang Goes to SLC Comic-Con FanX 17

Welcome to The SciFi Podcasta wretched hive of scum and villainy a bi-weekly podcast focused on in-depth discussion of all things Science Fiction. The SciFi Podcast features four hosts—Mattroid, Brain, Solo, and Station!—and frequent guests. Each episode we look at a science fiction theme or franchise and take the discussion where no show has gone before.

In lieu of a standard TSFP episode, Mattroid, Solo, Brain, and Spacewolf attend Salt Lake City’s Comic-Con FanX 2017. Station, having recently given birth, was unable to join in the fun and was sorely missed. Various discussions, interviews, and insights into the bizarre world of pop-culture conventions are discussed by the hosts during this episode, and Solo shows off his goofy side more than once, which alone is worth the price of admission. Have you ever been to a Comic-Con or similar kind of event? Let us know all about it! 

The Sci-Fi Podcast will return to form soon with episode 35.
