Join us for a special live Zoom panel with the hosts of sci-fi podcast Robby The Robot’s Waiting

Does science fiction need to be scientifically accurate? More importantly, is Galaxy Quest as good as you remember? These two essential questions will be answered live as sci-fi journalists Dave Bradley, Tanavi Patel and Richard Edwards bring their geeky chat – and a couple of guests – to SCI-FI-LONDON this December.

Robby The Robot’s Waiting is a fortnightly podcast by voices you’ll know from SFX magazine, Digital Spy, Total Film, MCM, Pocket Gamer, GamesRadar+ and beyond. Covering all things geeky, it’s available on major podcast platforms, and features guest authors, TV recommendations, retro movies and a digest of all the top nerd news. https://anchor.fm/robbyscifi

In this first-ever live version of the podcast, the trio discusses how much science you need in your sci-fi, and then wind down with their regular “Rewind” segment, this time looking back at 1999’s satire Galaxy Quest. By Grabthar’s Hammer, you shall be entertained!

The special guest for this show is Josh Winning.

Joshua is a senior film writer at Radio Times. He is contributing editor at Total Film magazine, writer at SFX and Den of Geek, and the co-host of movie podcast Torn Stubs. He has been on set with Kermit the Frog (and Miss Piggy), devoured breakfast with zombies on The Walking Dead, and sat on the Iron Throne on the Dublin set of Game of Thrones. He dreams of one day convincing SigourneyWeaver to yell “Goddammit!” at him.
