Imaginary Worlds

Imaginary Worlds is a bi-weekly podcast about science fiction and other fantasy genres. Host Eric Molinsky talks with novelists, screenwriters, comic book artists, filmmakers, and game designers about their craft of creating fictional worlds. The show also looks at the fan experience, exploring what makes us suspend our disbelief, and what happens when that spell is broken. Fantasy worlds may be set in distant planets or parallel dimensions, but they are crafted here on Earth and on some level relate to our daily lives. Employing his years of experience in public radio, Eric brings a sophisticated, thoughtfully produced voice to the far-out and fantastical. To access the full archive of Imaginary Worlds episodes, go to and use the promo code Imaginary.

Customer Reviews

Thoroughly enjoyable!

As a big fan of fiction and fandom and all things pop culture, I love learning about the history and the behind-the-scenes of fantasy and science fiction. The analysis of what goes into good storytelling is fascinating, and everything Eric says is well-thought-out and interesting. The interviews with people actually in the industries that this podcasts covers are a great way to get educated on such fun topics - I highly recommend it!

Profound and practical

This podcast is fabulous. I discovered it recently and cannot get enough. It is an escape but also shares profound and practical wisdom. It is always entertaining and well done.

Thee space of Imaginary Worlds is a library!

I've listened to Imaginary Worlds since it began, and what made it immediately appealing to me is the space I felt I was in when I listened to it. Despite being about fantasy worlds, I never felt I was in them, really. (A good thing, I think.) Instead, I felt like I was in a place from which I could safely observe these worlds. And just recently, it clicked for me: the space of Imaginary Worlds is a library. It's a quiet, interior space - itself a symbol for other worlds, mental, physical, and fantastic - but still a place with definite qualities of its own. Warmth. Quiet. Safety. But especially potential. Being in a library is to be wrapped in a neutral plane between paradox: mystery and discovery; the unknown and illumination; stillness and expansion; Etc. This is a wonderful show.
