A podcast about the life and work of mind-bending science fiction author Philip K. Dick. You know the movies and TV shows based on his work: “Blade Runner,” “Minority Report,” “A Scanner Darkly,” “Total Recall,” “Man in the High Castle” and many more. But PKD's real life was just as varied and fantastic as his writing: 1960s counterculture, unsolved break-ins, government conspiracies, divine encounters with non-human intelligence... On this show we’ll talk with people who knew PKD -- plus artists, scientists and thinkers inspired by his work -- to learn more about science fiction's greatest mind. Question your reality. The journey begins fall 2017.

Robert does a great job taking the listener through the interesting life of PKD. Love this angle on the iconic sci-fi author. And the score is on point!
Fascinating information about an author who had just as mysterious of a private life as his books were! PKD was so ahead of his time and I find this podcast relevant to current dilemmas such as personal image and reality, alternate universes, and corrupt political figures. Can’t wait for the next episode!
