Two friends join me to discuss the worldbuilding of the Stargate franchise! We talk about scientific notation, infectious disease protocols, ancient aliens, and the military industrial complex. Oh, and there's kind of a blood sacrifice?

Have you ever wished you could travel to a different world? Exolore can help with that! In each episode, astrophysicist/folklorist Moiya McTier explores fictional worlds by building them with a panel of expert guests, interviewing professional worldbuilders, or reviewing the merits of worlds that have already been built. You'll learn, you'll laugh, and you'll gain an appreciation for how special our planet really is.
