Everyone’s talking about it: the recent Big Hollywood anti-contemporary-fantasy rant! So, like good little specfic nuts, we’ve decided to join the discussion with our own take on fantasy and its supposed bankrupt nihilism. We try to have a little fun while doing it, but fun is really hard to manage when you’re dealing with so much dumb!

Intro and Main Discussion (0:00 – 33:05):
- “The Bankrupt Nihilism of Our Fallen Fantasists”
(Also known as the Great Head in Sand “I’m Not Listening” Game)
- “Is Science Fiction Getting More Conservative?”
(Alternatively, you might ask if it’s leaning the other way too!)
That’s all, folks! Thanks for listening. See you next week.
