A Bite of Stars, A Slug of Time, and Thou – Episode 16

FT + Slug of Time Podcast5 comments • 1,736 views

In the last episode of Series 2, Astrophysicist Michael Williams joins Mark Sinker and Elisha Sessions to talk about “The Forgotten Enemy”, written by Arthur C. Clarke in 1949. It’s about comfy isolation, radio static, and forces larger than oneself. Elisha reads the story at the front of the programme; music is “Speculative Reminiscing” by Low Res, “Permafrost” by Magazine, and “From My Window I Can See A Mountain in Snow” by Tisane feat. Kevin.

Produced by Elisha Sessions

    Disappointed at the Black Hole (Fred Hoyle) diss, it was always one of my faves. Haven’t read it in a while so can’t remember if the prose was tortuous or not; but it’s a good central idea, it’s nice to have some actual properly scientific scifi once in a while, and iirc it is pretty well plotted and paced.
