AntipodeanSF
AntipodeanSF podcast/radio show is devoted to the presentation of flash speculative fiction stories (science fiction, fantasy, and horror). AntiSF is where speculative fiction belongs -- downside-up!
Barbon's

Hail and Ave, I’m Nuke, host and editor of the AntiSF Radio Show Barbon’s. Not Bonbons, although it may be that time of year. This show is the last radio show for 2015, but don’t panic, the AntiSF Radio show will continue, weekly, through 2016. More fantastic speculative stories, more fresh music usually from down-under, and more occasional madness. That last from me, of course.

I encourage you to stay listening with me for the remainder of Barbon’s for three recent stories from the pages of AntipodeanSF, all of them from regular contributors, and including a new flash story from our most prolific and talented writer, Shaun A Saunders.

Baade's

G’day folks. Are you feeling Baade? That’s not what you think. Hi, I’m Nuke, your host and editor, and this is the AntiSF Radio Show Baade, spelled bravo, alpha, alpha, delta, oscar. Ah yes, there’s that international phonetic alphabet again. We’ll be learning the first digital radio signalling system soon, Morse Code, don’t you think? Don’t hear that much on the old shortwave bands any more.

Enough of that, though, because it’s surely storytime — and this episode brings us three stories from the pages of AntiSF, one of them a flashback from the early days of AntiSF, and a Christmas special story to boot. Stick around to hear that, and learn the real reason for the coming predictions of Apocalypse, written in a liquid helium flood.

The AntiSF Radio Show Atoms For Peace

Salutations and greetings. This is the AntiSF Radio Show Atoms for Peace, which sounds like a strange name for a bunch of stars. It you look this up on the intertubes, you’ll see why. You could also try searching for NGC 7252, and see whether you think the wide field image resembles the traditional diagram of an electron orbiting an atomic nucleus.

In Atoms for Peace the radio show you’ll hear two speculative stories from the pages of AntipodeanSF online, which can be found at

The AntiSF Radio Show Arp's

G’day and welcome to the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Arp’s, dedicated to the Astronomer Halton Arp. And just in case you’re wondering, which you should always do if you’re a true fan of the what if, the name Arp, as well as being the name of a galaxy as well, also refers to a book by Halton Arp that is a collection of the most peculiar mass conglomerations of stars in humankind’s telescopic reach.

Peculiarly enough, isn’t that also a meta description of the stories imagined in that space, around at least one of those stars? Similarly peculiar, and I think I just like that word today, I’m Nuke, your host and editor, and I’m definitely comfortable on my back in the grass looking up at the stars, and that’s where I’m staying for at least the next twenty five minutes or so. It’s flash specfic time under the stars. Stay close.

The AntiSF Radio Show Aquarius Dwarf

Welcome one and welcome all to the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Aquarius Dwarf, one of the only members in the local group that probably won’t have a close encounter with others in the group in the foreseeable future. Lonely, perhaps, and also rather dim, and slow in the star formation department. Nevertheless, anything that size is not small.

On this not so dwarf radio show today, we have time for two stories, one long, one short. The letter N in morse code, one of the first digital technologies, still practised by some with ham fists.

The AntiSF Radio Show Antennae

Good day to you. I know why you’re here. It’s the stories. I’m here for that too, on the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Antennae. I’m Nuke, your host and editor, and this fine morning, afternoon, evening or night you and I are about to partake in the internal creation of worlds from four different authors. There will be music too.

The Antisf Radio Show Andromeda M31

Greetings specfic fans and welcome to the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Andromeda. On a collision course with the Milky Way, no less, but currently two and a half million light years distant, named after the mythological princess Andromeda since the great galaxy is visible within that constellation. Is there a story in there? I’m sure there is. Andromeda, after all, is the biggest of the big when it comes to the local group, and has at least twice as many stars as the Milky Way. Twice as many stories, perhaps.

Speaking of stories, why not listen in with me — and I’m Nuke by the way, your host and editor. Settle back now in your chosen place and time, to hear a show that features two stories, one of them from a name that graced the pages of AntipodeanSF way back in the early years, and another by a new mind to contribute a story to a recent Issue.

The AntiSF Radio Show Ambartsumian's Knot

G’day, but not said in a way that can be traced back to drunk ancestors as some might like us to believe, from this Aussie magazine, radio show, and host of same. Hi, I’m Nuke, and this is, as you may have apprehended, the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Ambartsumian’s Knot. What? Well, it’s like this. The Knot is a part of a group known as the guitar, but this is not for playing. It’s a dwarf about 400 million light years distant, dancing in a spray of gravitational forces ripping streams and knots of stars into patterns that we can see.

Here at AntiSF we can see that far, but this episode has no guitars, although it may have some knots of the mind, and streams and sprays of consciousness. Please stick with me for the next half an hour or so for three ripping speculative stories and just a little music to bind them.

The AntiSF Radio Show Markeb

G’day and welcome speculative flash fiction lovers, and welcome to the AntiSF Radio Show Markeb. I’m Nuke, your host and editor, and I’m here to intro the stories, throw in a little music, and be your guide for a half an hour or so of storytime.

In this humble show you’ll be amazed at the profundity of the web, perhaps be scarred by the Square Kilometre Array, and take the first step on a planned addiction.

The AntiSF Radio Show Alderamin

G’day. Greetings earthlings. Do you know how to find Alderamin?. Looking at the constellation Cepheus helps. Therein lives a star that’s also designated Alpha Cephei. The star is relatively close to our solar system at only 49 light years. Ah relatively, is the key. Do you really know now far 49 light years is? Do you really know how far one light year is. The distances in this universe are almost beyond imagination. But back to the star. It has the traditional name Alderamin, an Arabic name meaning "the right arm".

And here we are, rain pattering on the roof, Alderamin in action but hidden, glowing somewhere that I cannot see it because it’s behind the curvature of the planet on which we live.

And as for on this side of that planet, It’s no longer winter, warmth is coming, but there is still time for a winter’s tale — and for us to get down on the pharmaceuticals. Story time by the way. And I’m Nuke, your host and editor. Two tales, and some down-under music about to assault your ears.
