This year there will be a few shows on some of the older science fiction that forms the foundation of “sci-fi” or “syfy” as we know it today. This episode we discuss a little known book by Clive Staples (CS) Lewis of Narnia fame titled Out of the Silent Planet. Written in 1938 and like Narnia defined by the christian allegorie this is still a very thoughtful and thought provoking book that explores humanity, alien life and how we see ourselves. Odile Thomas once again took the chair and was joined by Stefan and guest Sharon McGuiness, whose terrific observations made for a lively and fun discussion. Oh and she looks great in shades. Enjoy.

I am French, just started on my 4th decade and I am a teacher married to a British guy.

I love my job even though I do complain about it regularly (who doesn’t?). Why do I love my job? I think it is because I like working with kids, I like seeing their face when they realise they understand something new, I like the way I have to keep myself “updated” on all new stuff so I can keep up with them and even keep slightly ahead of them, be it with technology, music, films etc. I started teaching when I was 25 and I think I stopped growing old a couple of years later… well… I am getting older physically (obviously ) but in my mind I am still 27 ish…

Apart from teaching I do a lot of role playing games with a great group of friends. I love watching films and TV shows old and new.

I became a big fan of Firefly, discovering in the process the world of fandom and am currently involved in doing a podcast related to this fantastic tv show. Find more about it at

I have "met" Stefan a little more than a year ago now and was invited to take part in Highway to Mars a few times now... I guess Stefan liked what I had to say as he has now entrusted me with taking over a few episodes for him... I hope you will like them too!

Talking of podcast, I am also doing a school podcast with a few of my students, guiding them, teaching them to use different programs etc.

I love travelling and would do a lot more of it if we could afford it.
