Dissecting Worlds




Dissecting Worlds is a podcast co-hosted by long-time friends Matt and the pseudonymous Kehaar. We are hosted by the great folks at the Geek Syndicate Network who have been kind enough to let us take up their Bandwidth with our exploration of the Social Sciences in Geek Fictional Universes.Wait, what does that mean, exactly?

Essentially we pick a topic and debate the real-world influences and parallels that feed into that worlds creation, and on how it may function. Rather than trying to pick holes in someone elses creation (although there may be a bit of that!) its about trying fill in the blanks; see how things could work, or how vast breadth of history and cultures that humanity has produced have made similar things work already. Over the course of the show we’ve been lucky to get a number of knowledgeable guests on, which helps us keep track of all this stuff and not get too far off-topic. Well, mostly.

Latest Episode

After our month off, Agents M and K are back to wrap up Series 9, go through the Dissecting Worlds mailbag and look back on anything else we missed.

Direct Download: Dissecting Worlds Series 9, ep 7: Espionage Conclusions!

As we finally leave Espionage out in the cold, we cover:

  • Christopher Lee, one of DW’s favorite actors
  • Feedback – More Bond, Star Trek: Vanguard, Neal Asher’s Polity and more.
  • Good SF Spies vs Bad Fantasy Spies, and the “Turncoat” archetype
  • Authors later works do they affect what you think of earlier ones?
  • The official unveiling of Series 10, including its broad running order. Recommendations Welcome!

Warning: There is some audio chop on this episode we couldn’t get rid of. We’ve made the decision to leave it in, as there was already some feedback we couldn’t cover and it seemed a shame to drop us talking about your contributions. So apologies, and we hope you understand.

Feedback as ever is welcome to @DissectingWrlds on twitter, [email protected] on email, the Facebook Group or below !
