Flash Forward

Flash Forward is a podcast hosted by Rose Eveleth, in which we really overthink what the future has in store for us. Every episode will tackle one potential future scenario — everything from a sudden ice age, to the end of antibiotic effectiveness, to a world in which contact sports are banned due to head injury — and try to work out how that future would really go down.

The format is informative, loose and most of all entertaining. A wide variety of guests show up such as friends of The Adam Carolla show, (David Alan Grier, Greg Fitzsimmons, Teresa Strasser, the lovable Dr. Bruce) as well as big names in the parenting biz to personal friends and anyone that they find interesting.
