#59. Alien: Covenant (2017) w/ Jeannette Ng — A Shoot the WISB Subcast

19 Jun

Byron, Shelley, and Wagner, oh my! Shaun, David, and Jen, discuss Ridley Scott’s newest edition to the Alien universe, Alien: Covenant, with special guest, Jeannette Ng! The group travel deep into the weeds of the literary and theological references in the film (dragging Shaun along kicking and screaming), Ridley Scott’s ambitious vision, and David’s (not to be confused with the David on the podcast) role as the protagonist of Prometheus and Covenant. It’s a bit of a heavy hitter.
