One of Asimovs finest

I first read this short story many years ago and I found the concepts imagined within to be fascinating. I highly recommend everyone give this story a listen, you will not regret it. My only wish is Audible had more Asimov, as there seems to be a criminal lack of it

Old Time Radio

Great adaptation of an Asimov story! This is an original broadcast from the 1950s with all the original sound effects.

Interesting blast from the past.

Very 50s feel. Good job on everyone who worked on this. You get to see an interesting take for an alternate reality with a binary system.
