    Good stuff! Discovered your podcast through the link at today’s APOD and listened to the three current episodes. Are you aware that Brian Aldiss famously argued for “Frankenstein” as the first SF novel in “Billion Year Spree” (later expanded to “Trillion Year Spree”)? I point that out only because you sounded like it’s an original idea of yours, but maybe that’s just my poor interpretation.
