Here’s the second half of the 2nd episode of “Parallel Universe: Pazzo,” HILOBROW’s Radium Age science fiction podcast. We recorded it on February 26, at Pazzo Books here in Boston.

The second half of Episode 2 features readings from the following Radium Age supermen tales: Edmond Hamilton’s “The Man Who Evolved,” Alfred Jarry’s The Supermale, and George Bernard Shaw’s Back to Methuselah. We also recorded the winning story — by Charles Pappas — in our first micro-fiction contest.
