Hello my fellow Megadodo staff!
I'm a few days late but, well, time is a construct and all that - anyway on 8th March we celebrated 42 years of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy which first aired on that day in 1978!
Pan Macmillan has reprinted the scripts and novels in colourful new 42nd anniversary editions, the British Library hosted a bunch of events, and BBC Radio 4 aired the original episodes - it's wonderful to know that Hitchhiker's still has such an enduring fanbase and isn't going away anytime soon!
BBC Radio 4 extra had a great one hour special to celebrate the 42nd anniversary which might interest you - it's all about other sci-fi podcasts, with Rachel Wheeley from The Strange Case of Starship Iris which is a podcast I'd recommend!
This radio show is available to listen to here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000fx18
If you're on the lookout for some great mystery/sci-fi podcasts with a diverse cast, I'd definitely recommend checking out the projects by the Procyon Podcast Network, which you can find on tumblr here: https://procyon-podcast-network.tumblr.com/
Happy 42 years of interstellar hitchhiking, being in infinitely improbable situations, having near-death escapades, and continuing the hunt for a good cup of tea!
