The Voice Of Free Planet X

THE VOICE OF FREE PLANET X is public radio from another dimension. Hosted by Jared Axelrod, this show is for fans of science-fiction and fantasy, public radio interview shows like This American Life and Serial, and twists on that format like Limetown and The Black Tapes. If you're new, good places to start are "Paused," about a support group for stranded time-travelers, "One. Precious.Thing." about the first artificial intelligence and it's programmers, or whatever's most recent.
