If you like to worry about things that haven't happened yet and maybe never will, do we have the show for you! Flash Forward (formerly titled Meanwhile in the Future) is a brief and sometimes creepy offering from Boing Boing (formerly Gizmodo), and has quickly found a place in our listen list. Each episode takes a possible future as its premise - the internet goes dark; antibiotics stop working; robot overlords make decisions for us. After a short, dramatic rendering of the scenario, Rose Eveleth finds an expert to explain what would happen next. Be they science fiction writer or scientist, their answers are always illuminating, and as much about how we live today as in any hypothetical tomorrow.
