Your Brain on Facts


Things you never knew and a few things you thought you did know.  Imagine a Venn diagram where the podcasts Lore and Good Job, Brain! overlap with the YouTube channel Today I Found Out and the countdown episodes on CineFix - that's Your Brain On Facts!

Jun 19, 2018

My father was a sci-fi fan of the old school.  The man had the entire original Star Trek series on VHS, commercial free, and an Enterprise technical manual.  So in his honor, a little late for Father's Day, we go back in time to look to the future as we dive into the wormhole of classic sci-fi.   With segments voiced by Shaun Ennis, host of Stories of Yore and Yours.

Topics include Mary Shelley, Jules Verne, HG Wells, Robert Chambers and cosmic horror, NOT H. P. Lovecraft, William Hodgson and dying earth, Richard Jeffries and the invention of post-apocalptia, Olaf Stapledon and the multi-verse, the origin of the word "robot," Hugo Gernsback's Amazing Stories, John Campbell's Astounding Stories, the first and the longest-running sci-fi TV show and where all the tapes went, and the OG of sci-fi... Star Trek!
