Welcome to the 19th episode of the 15th season of the Retroist Podcast. Today’s episode, number 292, is all about the 1989 science fiction cop TV series, Alien Nation. I start the show talking about how I tried and failed to turn Alien Nation into a role-playing game. Despite failing, I had a great time trying. It deepened my fandom, and fired up my imagination. I am sure a lot of TTRPG players have had a similar experience.
