The 1950s Science Fiction Podcast S2E2
Introduction Well, how did you like that simulated Atomic blast? Neat Huh? Did you know that for as little as three dollars, you could see and hear an Atomic Test conducted at a Nevada test site during the 50s? Well, it was common until the test ban treaty put a stop to it. But testing is not what I will be discussing in this episode of the show. Anyway, welcome back to my podcast. This time I will be looking at the fear of Atomic war and its implications. The belief that civilians could survive an attack via fallout shelters and a good civil defense plan.

Hello everyone, I want to welcome you back to my podcast, it has been a long while since the last show, but now I am trying to get back into the swing of things. I have been busy with other projects and taking time to examine the progress of the show. In the interim, I have read two novels, one science fiction the other technothriller. For the first time, I got invited to another podcast. I did a mini-review of today's show topic as a guest contributor for the StarPodLog podcast. StarPodLog is all about the publication of fan magazine Starlog first published in the mid-70s and went out of print during the early 2000s. The podcast host, Nayr and Kayvura also discuss the Star Trek franchise and Gene Roddenberry in a similar podcast. You can follow them on StarPodLog on Twitter and StarPodLog and StarPodTrek Podcast - YouTube. I also want to mention science fiction author Erasmo Acosta, who has written a great sci-fi novel about the future. I did a book review of his book K3+ for my vocal media page, be sure to check it out. Now onto the show.

So far, my family and loved ones have not been affected as of yet. In this episode, I will discuss the pulp novels and magazines of interest from the 1950s. This is an area I have not had too much experience in, and I have wanting to explore it further.

Start of Transcript: Introduction: Hello and welcome once again to the 1950s science fiction podcast, hosted by me, Edward Geman. I have been a longtime sci-fi fan of the 50s b-movies, like the one I discussed in my last podcast. However, in this episode of the show, I will turn my attention to sci-fi TV. But first, I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to listen to my show and, I hope that you have enjoyed the program so far. I now have over 300 plays since I first started in late August of this year. And it has been quite a year not only for me and the rest of the world as well. It is nearing the end of the year, and we are still in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic. The crisis, expected to continue in the following year, has in itself been like something out of sci-fi but not as intense. I hope that it will be over soon and we can get back to a normal state of affairs.
