Every sci-fi fantasy world comes with a canon of rules and back stories.  The fans are fiercely protective of their favorite canons, but the canons are often patchworks created by people with conflicting ideas.  Does a dense canon make better storytelling?  Or does it alienate casual fans?  I talk with Derek McCaw, who runs the website Fanboy Planet.  And Rabbi Ben Newman explains why The Torah and Star Trek have a lot in common. 

Episode 3: The Canon

IMAGINARY WORLDS IS A BI-WEEKLY PODCAST HOSTED BY ERIC MOLINSKY ABOUT SCI-FI AND OTHER FANTASY GENRES -- HOW WE CREATE THEM AND WHY WE SUSPEND OUR DISBELIEF​.
