    0G200: Crimes of the Future and Artistic Burnout

    Just wild that this show has reached 200 episodes. 200 episodes worth of boxes and bug anuses. We've had a great run, hopefully folks will be happy with the coming changes. For our send off episode we cover the most recent Cronenberg creation and discuss what it says about art, authentic human connection, and the need to grow and try new things.

    0G199: Orville: New Horizons episode 8 and Culture War Child Soldiers

    From the personal to the political, we discuss the moral ups and downs of New Horizons' take on the culture wars. Are child soldiers good as long as the cause is just enough? Is it better to get wiped out doing the right thing or team up with space TERFs to fight space robo-nazis? All these question, plus a big announcement!

    0G198: Orville: New Horizons episode 5 and childhood gender autonomy

    If you had told me 10 years ago that we'd be having this level of Star Trek adjacent content AND it would be getting super serious into issues of gender affirming care for young individuals AND AND Seth McFarlin was in charge, I probably would have been a bit nervous. But trust me, don't be nervous on this one, now that they're not under the thumb of Big Fox, they can get woke and explore the identity universe together. So today we're covering ep5 of the New Horizons season of Orville, and discussing how it reflects our current discourse on Gender Identity.

    0G197: Everything Everywhere All at Once and Modal Luck pt 2

    Bringing it all together, and putting it on breakfast carbs! Alphaverse Jess is back to get us through the second half of the story, with all its weirdness, and we talk formal philosophy with the modal theory of luck, and pick up some previous show threads on cultural literacy and the view from nowhere.

    0G196: Everything Everywhere All at Once pt1

    This ones a lot, it really is everything all at once, so we brought in some help. From the Alpha verse, the multidimensional paterfamilias Jesse Rabinowitz joins us to discuss the Buddhist philosophy behind EEAAO. In part one we discuss the first half(ish, it's a lot) of the movie and the problem of Everything. In part two we'll discuss their "solution".

    0G195: The Boys Season Three and Hobbes' Leviathan

    0G195: The Boys Season Three and Hobbes' Leviathan

    Season two of the boys was some of the most messed up content I'd ever seen, until the first three episodes of season three. It's all brilliant, but yeah, hard to imagine a more Hobbesian Leviathan than Homelander. Homelander's Leviathan.

Just the BEST

This is an amazing podcast, and this episode is just
the best

Scarletminded ,

Please more Moorhead and Benson

I love your show. Please do a show on Spring, Synchronic and Resolution and how they intersect. Or at least tell me who wrote “All Ways” on the rock! Can’t wait to listen to your take on Brand New Cherry Flavor as well.

Kaoruchan42 ,

Fascinating

Very interesting, gives me new insight into the sci-fi I love.
