PODCAST: Let’s Make a Sci-Fi w/ Catherine Winder

In February 2022, Catherine Winder joined the team at CBC’s “Let’s Make a Sci-Fi” and provided some expertise in identifying what makes a great story. 

Catherine Winder joins Ryan Beil, Maddy Kelly, and Mark Chavez on the CBC podcast “Let’s Make a Sci-Fi” to assist them in identifying great story ideas and developing a beloved science fiction franchise.


Can three comedians create a legit science fiction show?


Ryan Beil, Maddy Kelly, and Mark Chavez are going to find out.


Over eight episodes, they’ll try to write a serious, and seriously nerdy, pilot script. When they run into trouble they’ll consult Hollywood experts who have worked on things like Star Trek, Star Wars, and Firefly and science fiction superstars like Neil deGrasse Tyson, Rainn Wilson, and Neill Blomkamp. And in the final episode, professional actors will read their script, bringing it to life — for better or worse.
