Token Skeptic podcast’s episode #213! Check out the Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/kyliesturgess and from only $1, get behind the scenes news and more. 


Inside a cryonics facility, seven people are woken from their icy slumber to find themselves alone in a locked room, unsure of what day, month or year it is. These strangers from different places and times must work out when they are – and where everyone else has gone!

Thaw: A Science Fiction Play is showing at the Nexus Theatre at Murdoch University until Saturday,as a part of FringeWorld. I spoke to writer / director Stephen B. Platt about the production – and the rarely-seen world of science fiction on the stage.


Recreational arts – it’s something that sounds good for us – but just how good?

Whether it’s great for your mental health, general well-being or good for society in general – these are questions that a group of UWA researchers have taken on board with a new study.

I interviewed an author of the study, from the school of population and health at UWA, Dr Christina Davies.


Tremendous thanks to the radio station RTRFM, where the first interview aired previously, especially producer Peter Barr.
