Episode 40 of Galactic Suburbia is now available for download.

In which we hug the Hugos, plug the Stella, lament the loss of the Weird Tales team, and contemplate (briefly) our podcasterly mid-life crisis. Alex delves into the wonderful world of classic cyberpunk, and Tansy demands to know why on earth Alisa is  still watching Doctor Who if she doesn’t actually like it?
