I’ve been listening to Escape Pod since the second year, and I’ve been a regular supporter for 4-5 years now. I love that they have a mix of lesser-known, up-and-coming, and heavyweight sci-fi authors and, with a handful of exceptions, the production quality is superb. The stories they choose are real diamonds. And I’m highly amused by the 4chan dudebros who are crying because they found out sci-fi isn’t 100% straight, white, or male. Because, you know, the world isn’t. Sci-fi has always been about what could be and if you aren’t curious or willing to be a bit uncomfortable, it’s not for you. That’s cool-they can miss out. But you shouldn’t!
