What Fans Say

“This is what podcasting is all about, and I’m very glad that it exists. I’m a molecular biologist and love it, even the stuff that’s way out of my areas of expertise. Thank you!”

“Love the podcast! Also like that you interview tons of different people (not just scientists) and consider social/cultural/racial issues as well.”

“There are lots of podcasts/sites/articles that speculate about what the future might look like in general, but the fact that you raise more specific scenarios really sparks the imagination in a way that most of those don’t. Flash Forward has quickly become my favourite podcast, and the only one that I listen to every single episode of. Please keep up the good work!”

“I love this podcast. Seriously. Every new episode gets bumped to the top of my list automatically, and I recommend it to everyone I know.”

“Can I just say how much I love that this has a female host…? It’s so refreshing not to have some guy droning into the mic or sounding fake enthusiastic (and outside of that, I can only listen to Neil Degrasse Tyson for so many hours a day). Rose sounds so genuine and enthusiastic. Keep it up!”

“Flash Forward has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. It’s super smart, delightfully geeky, and always thought provoking. I look forward to every new episode.”
