Customer Reviews

The best interview podcast out there.

I listen to a lot of interviews where the interviewer hasn't read the author's work and isn't familiar with who they are. David spends a lot of time learning about each new guest, often catching them off guard with insightful questions. A good example of this is in the Kazuo Ishiguro episode. By the end of it, the guest is engaged and asking questions back at David until his handler has to pull him away for the next interview.

In terms of interview-based podcsasting, you won't find a better option than The Geek's Guide to the Galaxy.

Science Fiction Authors

Wow! So amazing to get the opportunity to hear the most prominent science fiction authors chat with the most wonderful host in the history of Geek culture.

Nothing better, if you’re into this type of stuff.

We are lucky to have these folks in our lives.

The go-to podcast about science fiction

In this age of too-much content, the cream shall rise to the top. Geek's Guide to the Galaxy is the best podcast covering the fields of science fiction, fantasy and horror. Mr. Kirtley fields a great variety of guests and creators to discuss every aspect of speculative fiction (from books to games to movies to television and more). I can find no better podcast that covers this subject matter in such depth. If I have any complaint, it is that they have much more time to watch movies and TV than I and I must stockpile their discussions on those subjects until I can catch up. But the discussion is always worth the wait. I have been listening from the beginning and I will continue to do so until there are no more episodes to follow.
