About Us

Scott and Steven, two rad twin brothers, diverged in their life paths. Scott became a comic book master and online personality while Steven pursued a life of science. Now they're blowing each other's minds with their knowledge, and recording it just for YOU!Here's the show: Scott tells us about a crazy sci-fi story he's seen recently, and Steven tells us how scientifically possible it is. Then Steven tells us an interesting science fact, and Scott has to write a sci-fi story or superpower based on it. We don't know what each other will bring to the show so our responses are totally improvised!Email: scienceandfictionpod@gmail.comIG/Twitter/Facebook: @SciAndFicProfile image by Dr. Emma Chory!Soundcloud cover image adapted from photo by Niketh Vellanki on Unsplash!

In the debut episode of Science and Fiction, Scott and Steven talk about Marvel Runaways' evil parents and the power of young blood in rejuvenating animals (and maybe humans???). Notes to the fans: -S01E01 was not good, but maybe we'll release it as bonus content later on if you ask us nicely :) -We've gotten feedback on Steven's vocal sound.
