Listen to this episode


In Episode 237 of Beam Me Up, I play part one of Gustavo Bondoni’s short story Evasion. From Bondoni’s new collection of stories, Tenth Orbit and Other Faraway Places from Altered Dimensions press. An aging space station, now used for space salvage, is the stage where a very odd customer asks for an even odder product. Plus a very suspicious tax man tries to get to the bottom of some very odd goings on. And a station manager bent on keeping the two apart all the while trying to make a hefty profit.

From the blog at, Duncan Jones is once again posed to twist us in a completely new direction since his movie MOON. His newest effort is Source Code and I have the trailer. Alex and Steffen of Spy Films were tagged by Batelco to create a stunning promotional spot for the company and the resulting short called infinity will blow you away! Author / historian Mark Clarke uncovers a concerted effort in the early 20th century by AT&T / Bell Labs to suppress elector-magnetic technology, pushing major technological advancements back as much at 50 years! Do you have your favorite work of utopian science fiction? Tim Handorf has put together a top 20 list of essential works of utopian fiction. While his list is certainly good, I think we could do better … suggestions? Symphony of Science has a new compendium that they are calling A Wave of Reason. I think the resulting score is certainly one of their better efforts, so much so I open this week’s program with it. I review the post apocalyptic anime series Casshern Sins. This week’s story from Gustavo Bondoni is from his newest collection of short stories titled Tenth Orbit and Other Faraway Places. I take a few moment to review the collection of 22 short stories. This week’s movie review is the animated feature How to Train you Dragon. I found the animation absolutely astounding! Even though I am sure it will be viewed as a children’s movie, I honestly believe that animation aficionados will be entranced by the level of the cgi as well as hand drawn graphics. The attention to detail and sophistication will leave you breathless.

That and just plain foolishness this week on episode 237 of Beam Me Up
