Flash Forward

Flash Forward is a show about possible (and not so possible) future scenarios. What would the warranty on a sex robot look like? How would diplomacy work if we couldn’t lie? Could there ever be a fecal transplant black market? (Complicated, it wouldn’t, and yes, respectively, in case you’re curious.) Hosted and produced by award winning science journalist Rose Eveleth, each episode combines audio drama and journalism to go deep on potential tomorrows, and uncovers what those futures might really be like. The future is going to be weird, so let's get ready for it together.




Today we celebrate the FIVE YEAR anniversary of the podcast. Whoa. To celebrate, I reached out to every single person who you’ve ever heard on the podcast — every expert, every voice actor, and even a few patrons — and asked them one question: what would you say to someone living 50 years from now? Here’s what they said.

Guests: Alice Wong, Amy Slaton, Angeli Fitch, Arielle Duhaime-Ross, Ashley Shew, Avery Trufelman, Calvin Gimpelevich, Carl Evers, Chris Dancy, Damien Patrick Williams, David Agranoff. Ernesto D. Morales, Gina Tam, Janelle Shane, Janet Stemwedel, Jared Dyer, Jon Christensen, Kathy Randall Bryant, Katie Gordon, Kelly & Zack Weinersmith, Lina Ayenew, Matt Lubchanksy, Meredith Talusan, Michelle Hanlon, Morgan Gorris, Naomi Baron, Natalia Petrezela, Sandeep Ravindran, Queer Futures Collective, Sav Schlauderaff, Shoshanna Schlauderaff, Zia Puig, Zoe Schlanger
