TONIGHT, Episode 140 of Mars Pirate Radio will feature my post-interview conversation with science fiction author, screenwriter, and film producer, J. Neil Schulman. In 1973, as a 20 year old reporter for the New York Daily News, he interviewed famed science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein, author of Stranger in a Strange Land, and many other works, recording it with a tape recorder by telephone. At the time, Heinlein was considered The Dean of Science Fiction by his contemporaries. During Episodes 137, 138, and 139, we discussed his interview with excerpts, at length, in a wide-ranging conversation about the many subjects that emerged from the Heinlein interview. What follows is our brief ten minute exchange after the formal interview. 


Music was composed by Bernard Herrmann for Fahrenheit 455, Copyright 1966 by Univeersal Pictures
