    Well, not exactly, but an uninhibitedly enthusiastic discussion of science fiction on national (!) U.S. TV from two sf nerds, Paul Giamatti and Stephen Colbert, with shout-outs to Jack Vance, Larry Niven, Henry Kuttner (Robots Have No Tails, Mutant), C.L. Moore (Vintage Season), Keith Laumer (Bolo), and especially F&SF's own Avram Davidson (The Phoenix and the Mirror). Crazy!

    Thank you, Chris.

    That was extraordinary: two gentlemen who appreciate the classics --- good to know culture is not entirely dead in this degraded world of 2018.

    The show's piano player was also not bad at all in a vaguely Oscar Peterson-ish way as they came out of the ad break.
