Judy, Orenthal, and Jay Smith join Louis Trapani to discuss the predictions made by science fiction authors about our future.  Where are the moon colonies?  Where are our deep space probes?  Where's my flying car?  Just what did they get right and what feel short?  What do we attribute to these successes and failures?

Plus, Jay Smith offers his thoughts on "My Guilty Pleasure", a look at Who Wants to be a Superhero? Post your thoughts on the episode here.

 

 New media producer, Louis Trapani founded the Gallifreyan Embassy, a Doctor Who and British science-fiction fan organization in June 1985 after seeing that there were no local Doctor Who fan groups in the south-eastern New York area. The Gallifreyan Embassy of Long Island quickly established itself in the '80s volunteering on PBS pledge drives, appearing at conventions, interviewing various Doctor Who related cast and production members of the television series. Since that time, it now has a world-wide membership and audience. Louis has appreciated science fiction all his life and this interest goes beyond Doctor Who. He currently hosts and produces Doctor Who: Podshock, a weekly international podcast covering all of Doctor Who, The Sonic Newsdriver, a podcast covering current Doctor Who news, The Hitchhiker's Guide to British Sci-Fi, as the name implies a show which covers all British science fiction media, as well as other shows set to launch that cover broader science fiction and fantasy. Louis has majored in the media arts department at the School of Visual Arts and has worked in the creative media realm in various ways. He has spearheaded Art Trap Productions for the last 15 years in that field. He is an artist, activist, tech addict, Mac geek, producer and director.
