Send me your feedback 1-805-910-7656 or feedback@solotalkmedia.com

You have until Thursday November 26 at 12 noon EST to submit your feedback.

Welcome to The Expanse Podcast Double Take where I give you my first impressions right after seeing the season 1 pilot titled “Dulcinea” for the first time. I’m creating these short posts to encourage listener feedback by asking questions about the episode.

This week’s question are…

1) What were your first impressions of The Expanse?

2) What options do you think the remaining crew of the Canterbury have?

3) Will you encourage friends and family to watch the television premier of The Expanse on Monday December 14th?

I’d like to thank everyone who has subscribed to this podcast and encourage you to join the discussion by sending in your feedback by calling +1-805-910-7656 or by e-mailing me at feedback@solotalkmedia.com or visiting the website at solotalkmedia.com. If you are enjoying this podcast please consider leaving me a review in iTunes.


  1. I was reading the book as I watched the show. I thought it was really close to the book, but I also think it was better than the book. much like how the Lord of the Rings movies improved upon the source material.

    One of the best moments in the first episode is when the Cant’ is blown up and Holden says “She’s gone…” which has 2 meanings and it’s not clear which he really means (or both). he could be referring to the ship… or to his girlfriend.

    Something else to think about after you’ve watched the entire first 3 seasons… Everything that happens in this story happens because Holden is a good guy. He decides to involve the Cant’ in the rescue. Though that starts all kinds of turmoil and TONS of people die as a result (including his girlfriend) , ultimately it was a good thing he got involved.

  2. Oh.. and..

    1) I was impressed with the realism of life in outer space.
    2) I didn’t like Amos (later on in the show I like him a lot)
    3) I tell my friends and family about it all the time.

    • I completely agree with you. Holden is a good guy and wants to do the right thing. He just doesn’t realize that the right thing can have so many consequences.

      BTW, Read the novella The Churn if you haven’t already. It gives A LOT of insight into Amos. You’ll appreciate him even more afterwards.

      • Thanks! I’ll do that! I also want to check out the other story about the Epstien drive you mention later.
