    Metanoia - Westworld S4 Ep 7

    Metanoia - Westworld S4 Ep 7

    In Christian theology, metanoia is commonly understood as "a transformative change of heart; especially: a spiritual conversion."
    On this episode of the Beyond Westworld podcast, we dive into William's metanoia as he elects to turn this game into a survival of the fittest for all. Bernard and Maeve have several paths to choose from, and none of them seem to work out well for them. Hale decides to sunset mankind just as C attempts to break out her father, Caleb, and all hell breaks loose between hosts and humans. And we are not even to the season finale yet!

    Fidelity - Westworld S4 Ep 6

    Fidelity - Westworld S4 Ep 6

    Fidelity is defined as both the degree to which the detail and quality of an original is copied exactly and the state of remaining loyal to someone and keeping promises you made.  
    On this episode of the Beyond Westworld podcast, C is for cookie not Caleb, even though there are 278, nay 279 versions of him.  Who is cookie you ask? Well none other than Caleb's daughter Frankie who is also host Caleb's core drive. Caleb looks to escape Olympia's headquarters with the help of the past versions of himself in order to transmit a message to Frankie.  Meanwhile C and Bernard work to repair Maeve while they suss out a mole amongst their ranks.

    Zhuangzi - Westworld Season 4 Ep 5

    Zhuangzi - Westworld Season 4 Ep 5

    Zhuang Zhou, commonly known as Zhuangzi, was an influential Chinese philosopher in the 4th century BC. He is credited as a writer of Zhuangzi, an instrumental work in relation to Taoism. 
    On this episode of the Beyond Westworld podcast, we discuss the philosophies at play in Westworld as Charlotte Hale finally elaborates on her plan to dominate the humans, and how effective it has become. Elsewhere, Christina begins to question the nature of her own reality, even waking to the notion that in this world, she is a God. And as Stubbs sets off on a mission, the Man in Black begins to struggle with his own code...is he becoming the host version of an outlier?

    Generation Loss - Westworld Season 4 Ep 4

    Generation Loss - Westworld Season 4 Ep 4

    Generation loss may include the introduction of noise and a loss of acuity. The quality of successive generations generally deteriorates when using an analog process. Although digital reproduction is, in theory, capable of producing successive generations without loss of quality, in practice the copying process may introduce errors. Is Caleb an error? 
    On this episode of the Beyond Westworld podcast, we explore the revelations that the Caleb we see is not who we thought he was. In fact, he's the 279th (or something) version of who we thought he was. Bernard teams with C for a weapon in the desert that we know all too well. Hale unveils parts of her master plan. And Christina aka Dolores finally meets up with her sweet Teddy again.

    Années Folles - Westworld Season 4 Ep 3

    Années Folles - Westworld Season 4 Ep 3

    Années Folles refers to the crazy years in France during the 20s, or the Roaring 20s aka Golden Age in the US. For Westworld, it could be referring to the newly constructed park emulating that timeframe, or it could be referencing the crazy years Bernard has spent inside the Sublime learning all of the possible scenarios that could eradicate the human species. One of those. 
    On this episode of the Beyond Westworld podcast, we explore the revelation of this ominous fly conspiracy, and what it all means for Caleb and Maeve as they are now in the belly of the beast with no foreseeable way out. Also, Bernard and Stubbs embark on a side quest to meet with C and J, revolutionaries living on Condemned Lands that might hold a key to the survival of the human race.

Blackster47 ,

Great analysis!

I intended to give the variety of Westworld podcasts that have cropped up a try but I don't feel I need to after Beyond Westworld. Aaron & Troy have a great format, excellent sound quality, and they get into all the mass of theories and concepts about the show in wonderful detail. I'm considering this my only companion to HBO's show.
