56. Minority Report

Kaylia and special guest Shawn talk revisionist history, the “fat guy, skinny wife” trope, the varied religious overtones, the symbolism of the color red and of water…. and of course… Are our fates written in stone? Yeah, this sci-fi action flick is rather layered and deep. Plus we name-drop a zillion movie titles and have Star Trek trivia. Enjoy!

The Minority Reportis a 1956 science fiction novella by American writer Philip K. Dick, first published in Fantastic Universe. In a future society, three mutants foresee all crime before it occurs.
