Syfy’s “The Expanse,” based on the James S. A. Corey book series, revolves around conflict between human-seeded planetary civilizations -- namely a UN-governed Earth and an independent Martian state.

In this episode of Stuff to Blow Your Mind, Robert and Christian explore and even chat with “The Expanse” executive producer Naren Shankar.
