An experimental episode where unpack a perfect trifecta of DS9 Season 3. We nerd out about weird stuff from elevator pricing, to Thor Heyerdahl, and our favorite theocracy the UK. Three times the episode. Three times the weirdness.
In early October Androids and Assets had the pleasure of speaking with author, Karl Schroeder.
Karl is the author of many books and short stories. The most recent is Stealing Worlds an excellent near-future novel full of incredible ideas and a fun action-y, mystery-ish story. It’s available from Tor Books and is well worth reading.
We spoke to Karl about economics and capitalism and the future. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
This week we’re joined by local comedian, Mav. We talk about Mav’s recent show Last Days on Krypton. A comedy based around the climate crisis and collective action as the only real, lasting solution to this crisis.
Mav talks about committing a Green 9/11, which we understand to be the collective uprising of working people to overthrow capitalism. In a non-violent way, of course.
Welcome to Season 2 of Androids and Assets! Thanks for being here with us! We’ve decided to make Luc Besson our traditional season opener so today we’re talking about The Fifth Element. It’s a movie that requires societal supervision so be sure to watch it with a diverse group of friends.
We saw Ready Player One. It’s a combination of sexism, naïveté, toxic nostalgia, and pessimism.
We’re talking Black Panther! A very important movie that talks about some urgent topics. Not your standard super hero beat em up.
Today we carry on our conversation with Candace! We’re talking about Okja, sustainability, and animals in our food systems.
We talk Joon-ho Bong’s 2017 movie Okja with animal scientist Candace! Okja is a meat cute movie about a superpig and her girl.
