Welcome to a sci-fi podcast hosted by top genre journalists. We share anecdotes, celebrate classics, deliver what-to-watch recommendations, and contemplate the latest news and trailers. It’s like a geeky film and TV magazine in audio form. Not that long ago, in a galaxy not far away, three geeks (including former editors of SFX magazine) joined forces, with the prime directive of delivering the nerdiest chat this side of Alpha Centauri. Richard Edwards, Dave Bradley and Tanavi Patel invite y ...

Life moves pretty fast out in the suburbs. It was only last Friday that WandaVision came to an end. So we’ve put together this special episode of magical chat.

It’s the end of the world as we know it – and he feels fine!

At the end of a year when planet Earth turned into a total-immersion version of a post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie, the Robby The Robot’s Waiting team take the only logical course of action – we look back on a year of TV and film. While 2020 in cinema was as much about the films we didn’t see as the films we did – would Birds Of Prey be making it into…
 
Christmas has been an eclectic mix for the Robby The Robot’s Waiting team. The premise of our "Christmas gifts" was to introduce our co-hosts to something they've not seen before. Having ventured into ’80s fantasy territory with Hawk The Slayer, before braving the Spanish Civil War chills of The Devil’s Backbone, we’re off for a jaunt to the decide…
 
We've reinvented the concept of Christmas presents this year. Instead of handing out actual tangible gifts, Tanavi, Dave and Richard – aka the Robby The Robot's Waiting podcast team – have each chosen a favourite movie or TV show for the other two to watch. The only rule is that they can't have seen it before. Following Dave's pick of Hawk The Slay…

October is the spookiest month, so we’re joined by horror expert Louise Blain to discuss new TV series The Haunting Of Bly Manor and classic movie Final Destination.
