Episode 28: In this month’s episode the Escape the Earth crew discuss the book that named the Metaverse—Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash.

Episode 27: Would you upload your consciousness? Are aliens the answer to world peace? Is Bob Ross’s hair space worthy? All these questions and more are explored when the crew of Escape the Earth meet the crew of the Rosebud during our discussion of Paul Cornell’s Rosebud. Although opinions were split on the book, we did enjoy pondering the fate of AI’s involvement with humanity, humanity’s destructive nature, and whether humanity can save themselves or if we’ll have to rely on aliens to do it.
