In this special episode our special guest is scientist Michael Dean who has been a consultant for many of my novels. The topic of this podcast is the lack of science fact in fiction and how writers sometimes fudge the science in their novels to tell a story. This is, however, sometimes necessary. We discuss Heinlein, Dick, Asimov, and Gregory Benford. We also talk about science in film such as movies like Avatar and Interstellar. Michael is also a massive trekkie and so he is asked what he thinks the future of Star Trek might be. His answer surprised us, especially his opinion about the destruction of Vulcan in the J.J. Abrams Star Trek film.
