This week brings the longest episode yet! That’s only because it’s full of so much great content! This week, the roundtable discusses military fiction, in any form, and it takes some thoughtful, and unexpected, turns.
Week in Geek: Andrew continues his reading streak with Ready Player One by Ernest Cline while Dan is impressed with the Disney revisionist fairy tale, Maleficent.
Interview: Dan sits down with the host of The Science Fiction Show (a great podcast to which you all should listen), Jason Tudor, as they discuss–among other things–military science fiction.
Discussion: Continuing the subject, Andrew and Dan specifically discuss the military’s involvement in entertainment media throughout the years, how it has changed, and what it means for nerds and geeks.
Andrew Objects: Andrew cuts in to discuss how some aspects of Crimson Tide are, well, objectionable.
