philoscifiz podcast episode 17 – When Worlds Collide (1951)

Out now – episode 17 of philoscifiz, an on-screen sci-fi & philosophy podcast I present along with Dr Matthew J. Barnard (Lecturer in Philosophy, Manchester Metropolitan University).

The end of the world is nigh! Join us for a magnificent sci-fi take on the Noah’s Ark myth, the Earth facing destruction from a rogue sun and its orbiting planet: Bellus and Zyra.

There’s eight months to build a spaceship in a last-ditch attempt to save something of the human race, and carry 40 people to Zyra. Who will go? Will they get there? Is the planet inhabitable?

And what can Sartre tell us about our desires to conjure tales of existential apocalypse?
