From Alpha Centauri to Apple

Mark Steadman, Jon Hickman and Danny Smith continue their mission to discuss everything in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy canon , in alphabetical order.

Alpha Centuri

A real star system that might’ve put paid to the Vogons’ plan to destroy earth. Otherwise known as an intergalactic Slough.

Altarian Dollar

A now defunct currency that probably doesn’t go as far as it used to.

Amalgamated Union of Philosophers, Sages, Luminaries and Other Thinking Persons

The organisation to which Vroomfondel and Majikthise belong. We discuss whether they’re any good at the thing they purport to protect.

American Express

A small credit card from Earth, and the subject of some pretty nasty bar disputes.

Angst in Space

A film Wowbagger watches, deftly summarised in Netflix synopsis style by Jon.

Antarean mosaic lizard

A teeny-tiny lizard whose skin adorns a marble-topped bar in Milliways.

Antarean parakeet glands

Revolting little cocktail garnishes, but the inspiration for a few confessions from our team.

Anthony Sharp

The voice of the Milliways waiter and of the great prophet Zarquon. Here we discuss what we’d like to be remembered for.


The people who make computers, one of which was purchased by Arthur when he tried to find his old cave on prehistoric Earth.
