Shark Jumps (episode 18 of the podcast)

In this new episode of Science Fiction 101 , Phil and Colin review three short stories - the only three stories to make the Hugo, Nebula and Locus shortlists this time round. Our quizzing reaches new heights - or should that be depths - with a Chronology- inspired challenge for Phil. And we round off with our usual dash through past/present/future science fiction. We hope you enjoy the show. The stories we review are: " Mr. Death " by Alix E. Harrow (from Apex #2, 2021) " Proof by Induction " by José Pablo Iriarte (from Uncanny #5-6, 2021) " Where Oaken Hearts Do Gather ", Sarah Pinsker (from Uncanny #3-4, 2021)   Other items we mention: The Nebula award winners , Netflix series Sweet Tooth , Paramount Plus' Obi Wan Kenobi , film director Byron Haskin , author Patricia McKillip , podcasts and books from The Skeptics Guide to the Universe .         Other podcast platf
