63. Story of Your Life / Arrival

Chris and Kaylia talk about thinking about time travel, the limitations of language, just how many diagrams are too many for a short story, and what makes this movie adaptation just so freakin’ awesome.

61. The Circle

Jennifer and Kaylia talk about the evils of privacy vs the evils of entitlement, the relative charm factor of Emma Watson, and how a book neither one of us loved still had some really cool provocative bits… that somehow got left out of the film. Hopefully, our episode elicits more “smiles” than “frowns

60. Ender’s Game

Matthew and Kaylia discuss such topics as: Is it a kid’s book or just a book about kids? What is the message, lesson, or argument of the book? Is Ender more victim or hero? How blameless is he really? Plus all the controversy about the author and a warning not to meet your heroes. Enjoy!

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!
