Beam Me Up #305 Final Exam pt1 by Ed McKeown + 1 Law conclusion – Keith Latch

Ok, today’s show is a clear example of what happens when Paul lets things get away from him! Yep, I had said that I would run Final Exam starting earlier in March. For some reason I confused that with Keith Latch’s “One Law”. What does that mean to you? Other than you get almost 45 minutes of story time this week!

To get the toes tappin I play a live cut of Mr. Spaceman by the Byrds.

In the first story, part one of “Final Exam” by Ed McKeown. A YA short story that really will appeal to all ages. In Final Exam, the fate of mankind may really have fallen to a group of intrepid high school students. All they needed to do was pass…..the test….The Final Exam.

I close episode 305 with the conclusion to Keith Latch’s “1 Law” We have learned so far that there is only one true law – You will NOT edit time. There isn’t any defense and punishment is swift and final. Part two put our enforcer Carson in one of his strangest jobs yet. One where the very mission itself may end his existence!

Between the stories I review the movie “In Time”, where the “currency of the realm” is time itself. Is the movie worth the “Time” it takes to watch it? Listen and find out….

This week on Beam Me Up episode 304 contains top notch entertainment as well as thought provoking articles.

I open this week’s program with episode 6 of In Plain Sight, the Dark Inspectre Series by Jason Kahn.    Inspector Jack Garrett finds himself drawn back into the dark places his previous case took him.  Things are still not adding up and old ghosts continue to “haunt” him at every turn.

From the Beam Me Up blog:  Earth Sky brings us up to speed concerning the light show that Venus and Jupiter will put on in the evenings of March.  Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson answers the question “What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the universe?” as only he can.  MIT research team has shown an LED bulb can actually give off more energy (in light) than it consumes.  Cosmologists from Canada’s Dalhousie University and Queen Mary University in London, theorized that some primordial black holes might have existed before the big bang.

Finally the closing story is part one of Keith Latch’s 1 Law which gives us an unusual spin on the time traveler bent on changing history and the time cop that must stop the illegal time line modifications at all cost.

It seems there was so much stuff in such a short time.  Reminds me of something….blivit or not!  Enjoy!!
