If you're in the mood for some geeksplaining, intense debating, or little-known pop-culture fact investigating, then we have some great news for you!

Starting today, three new SYFY WIRE podcasts -- Geeksplain, Debate Club, and Untold Story -- are ready for listening on Amazon Alexa as part of a new subscription service. The first episode of each new podcast is available right now, with new episodes dropping next week.

Geeksplain breaks down everything there is to know about a certain topic, franchise, character, or overall genre phenomenon. New episodes drop on Mondays.

Debate Club features journalists Will Leitch (New York Magazine, New Republic) and Tim Grierson (Rolling Stone), who write our weekly Debate Club column on the site, taking things to the audio world as they tackle age-old geek debates, such as which is the best space movie of all time, or who is the scariest supervillain. New episodes will be released on Wednesdays. 

Untold Story finds SYFY WIRE contributing editor Dany Roth unearthing unique and little-known tales about some of the most popular characters, stories, and franchises in the genre world. New episodes will launch on Fridays.

These podcasts are available to Amazon Prime members for $1.59 a month, and $1.99 a month for non-Prime members. 

The podcasts can be accessed on all Alexa-enabled devices, such as Amazon Echo, Echo Show, and Echo Dot. To bring them into your life, simply open the Skills pages in your Alexa settings, search for SYFY WIRE, and then add that skill.

After that, all you'll have to do is ask Alexa to "ask SYFY WIRE for exclusives," and you will be able to access them for the price points above. 

For non-subscribers, Alexa can also access such ongoing SYFY WIRE podcasts as Who Won the Week, The Fandom Files, Strong Female Characters, The Churn, and more (and subscribers can access them for free too, duh).

Just to reiterate — the first episode of each new podcast is available right now, with new shows being added on their respective days starting on May 7.
