Where science and fiction meet.

Philip K. Dick ("PKD") was a masterful writer who blended science, philosophy, and fiction together to give us tales that challenge us, transport us, and inspire us as readers and people.

On December 16, 2022 (what would have been PKD's 95th birthday), we will begin presenting one of his short stories per month, adapted for the audio play/podcast format. 

Whether you've never read his works before or are a PKD follower, The PKDcast will bring new life to his classics while aiming to honor them at the same time.
