Feature Friday with Stephanie Rodin

“Science fiction encourages us to explore… all the futures, good and bad, that the human mind can envision.” Marion Zimmer Bradley


Stephanie Rodin has graciously joined me again for another “top of” list.  This time Steph and I are focusing on our top 5 science fiction media (books, movies, TV, radio shows, whatever).  If you look back at Did You Know That? episode 2021:22 you’ll know how much fun Steph and I have discussing anything pop culture related.

Feature Friday – Top 10 TV Shows!

“I liken actors and movies and TV shows to football teams. We all have our favorite ones.” Kristoffer Polaha


The boob tube.  The idiot box.  The small screen.  Whatever you call it, the inanimate TV is not always looked upon in a favorable light.  Well, that doesn’t mean the shows that stream through the telly haven’t impacted us in favorable ways.  So that’s what we’re focused on during this episode of Did You Know That?

Stephanie Rodin makes a celebrated return to the channel (first repeat guest) to talk about her – and my – top 10 TV shows of all time.  Like all lists we’ve talked about, this is subject to change, but you should expect that by now.

So how do our lists (below) compare to yours?  Where do you agree/disagree/have no idea?  Let us know if any these would make your list or put your own list in the comments.

Just a reminder about what Stephanie does when she’s not watching TV, check out the contact points below.
