The 1950s Science Fiction Podcast: S1E6
Start of Transcript Introduction. Hello and once, again welcome to the 1950 Science Fiction Podcast. You are now listening to the sixth episode for season one. The show is also the first for the new year. I hope that everyone had a great holiday season and that you have stayed safe amid the pandemic. 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. I know that I have read a few 1950s sci-fi novels over the years, but I can't remember what titles I have read.

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.

The 1950s Science Fiction Podcast. S1:E2
Start of Transcript: Introduction: Hello everyone, and welcome to The 1950s science fiction podcast. I hope that you have listened to and enjoyed episode one of the show. In episode one, I talked about 50s sci-fi radio dramas and how great they were. Today I will discuss the science fiction programs broadcasted on Television during the decade. The broadcast TV industry got started just after World War Two and started to grow. There were experiments in TV transmissions conducted during the 1930s; however, the war put a stop on any further development of the technology. Once the war was over, the commercial TV industry got started, then TV sets went on sale. By the middle of the 50s, most major cities had at least one TV station operating. The 1950s saw the extortionary growth of the new medium much the same way we saw the internet boom back at the turn of the 21 century. More and more TV sets went on sale during the 50s, by the end of the decade, TV sets were commonplace in America.

The 1950s Science Fiction Podcast
Transcript: Hello everyone, I want to introduce you to my brand new podcast, the 50s science fiction podcast. This show will be all about my favorite sci-fi-fi TV shows, movies, and literature from the decade of the 1950s. Why the 50s you ask? Well, I grew up watching sci-fi movies on cable TV growing up during the 70s, everything from drive-in monster movies to classic A-list films that were screened in theaters back in the 50s then syndicated later on. I will talk more about that latter, however, with the advent of the internet in the 21 century, I have discovered more gems that I either never got to see or never knew about until later.
The Time Travelers
The Time Travelers is a science fiction movie released by American International Pictures on October 29, 1964, and was directed by Ib Melchior. The motion picture is about a small group of scientists who are conducting experiments in a lab during the present day. When one of the group steps thru a portal that displays an alien landscape, the others follow afterward only find themselves trapped in a barren world. There are no major stars in the cast only character actors whose experience includes movies and TV. The movie was shot on a very low budget and as a result, low-grade special effects were used. The running time was 82 minutes and was billed with a double feature.
