The End of Fight the Future

Postby Daniel » 11 Feb 2016, 13:38

In every episode of Fight the Future with Dan and Paul we talk about the end of the world. And now our little world is coming to an end. We will cover two more YA dystopias, and then we've decided that the 26th episode will be the last. If we keep going, I might have to watch Allegiant, and that's not ok. But I've enjoyed doing this very much!

Episode 26 will be a bonus content/best of episode. So! If you have enjoyed our podcast, we would love to hear about any favourite moments that come to mind, little bits you thought were funny or memorable. It will help us to weave together a tapestry of awesomeness, with plenty of secret backstage moments!

Thanks for being a fan!

Well I've just got to say thanks for the year of podcasts I've really enjoyed listening to them.

I don't think I had a 'favorite moment' from the podcasts, but the "A boy and his dog" podcast was definitely a high point in terms of your reactions to it.

I'm very sad to hear that this podcast is ending. And just when I'm about to recommend y'all for a nomination for Best Fancast for the 2016 Hugo Awards. In fact, I did send an email to Paul about it; has he shared it with you yet?

This is terrible news, this podcast has been my go-to for long nights where my children get up late in the night and I need something to listen to while rocking them back to sleep.

It's been a great series though and I can certainly understand not wanting to have to watch Allegiant so, that's at least comprehensible.

Thanks so much for doing this and good luck in your future ventures Dan and Paul!

Thanks for the nice words @hacofo, @Trisha Lynn, @DaMage, and especially @Clypheous! There's always relistening, and we have ideas for new and even more fun podcasts, so stay tuned!

I don't mean to say that you aren't all great fans, but reading @Clypheous's post moved me because it's an example of our podcast being useful, at least in a tiny microscopic way, something I sort of doubted.

Thanks for that @Jenelmo!

Since I'm travelling, to get all the awesomeness into this last, clip-show episode I have envisioned, I'm pushing back the release date two weeks, to March 29. It will be fun!

I too will miss Fight The Future in my daily routine. It's been one of my favorites to listen to at work, whilst also drowning out the pneumatic machine I stand in front of for 8 hours a day. Off the top of my head I'd have to say the comment that "He can really make his hand look like a tree" from the Hunger Games episode, the "Ride with a Rue" ride idea from the Ender's Game episode, and the "How would they do" from the Battle Royale episode.

Of course your reactions to A Boy and His Dog were priceless. Even listening to left me a little distrustful of Dogmeat in the post-apocalyptic wastelands of Fallout.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you Dan and Paul for making fight the future. It's been 25 episodes of awesome so far, and I hope you'll both keep us fans in your minds and hearts in the future when you have an idea that might make a podcast.

Lastly Dan: Do you think it would be interesting to see what might've been changed in the movies you watched to make them more suitable to an Italian audience?
Well, do you want an ethical solution or an effective one?

Never underestimate how your content can reach people. I've just been through the worst year of my life due to health problems (I'm only 23), and your podcast every fortnight was a real highlight. I spent about two months not being able to stand up, so being able to lie back and listening to the podcast was one of my boredom savers. You also got me to watch some movies that I never would have bothered with or even known about.

And hopefully avoided some movies that you should never, ever, in a million years want to watch?

I think that both Dan and Paul should realize that something even as seemingly small as a podcast can make a huge difference in people's lives. Hopefully they have future projects planned that will be awesome for themselves and others as well.

I was on vacation so I didn't reply to this. Thanks so much @DaMage, it really means a lot to me! I was almost in tears. And thanks @Clypheous!

Now I'm really determined to make this last episode fun!

Is there anywhere that we can hear the full version of the opening music?

It's coming on monday! The clean intro music, outro music - and some never-before-heard Fight the Future music, that is significantly different!
