From days of long ago, from uncharted regions of the universe, comes a legendary podcast. Super High Sci-Fi is a weekly(ish) discussion of all things sci-fi. Join Clark, Grant, and their army of co-hosts as they get totally high on sci-fi! Books, movies, television, games, comics, and more--if it's sci-fi we're high! Check us out on iTunes!
A distress signal from a podcast studio must be answered: Will we find proof of creativity in Hollywood? Check out some classic Alien games–some of them may surprise you! …like an alien monster on your ship. Or your captain’s unexplained choices.
Part one of our discussion of a lot of news, the excellent Midnight Special, and Pluto Nash.

We’re back! After a viscous and cowardly attack on our audio levels by the Bugs of Klendathu, the SHSF Federal Council bravely recorded a new episode…about Neil Patrick Harris’ Nazi chic, the new Star Wars trailer, and some random recriminations about the Prequels thrown in for good measure. And we’re not kidding about the NPH […]
