Taking philosophy to nerd culture

Thomas is a great interviewer (see any of his dozen other podcasts for more examples), Aaron has great philosophical insight. They are both nerds who bring interesting takes on nerd culture by taking apart movies and TV and trying to bring a new way to look at things we all love.
The cast is always a delight to listen to and often a new take on things I thought I knew.

Could be so much better

If Thomas Smith would stay quiet ( he’s not funny) there would be so much more time for the good analysis that can be found here. Recommended if you can get past Smith.

I want to be in the audience on a live podcast!

These guys & their audience are my people. My grandpa told me stories: based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs & Jules Verne that he read. So anyway, here I am & I really like this podcast.
