Join hosts Kevin and Steve as they debate and bemoan the big questions in the universe and everyday life - after all, we're on this rock together, right? Right?
Favorite Fantasy Worlds Part I05/10/2016 Duração: 40min
Kevin and Steve get their nerd on and ask, “Of all the fantasy/sci-fi novel settings you’ve read about, where would you want to live?” Part I of this episode is a boy’s club (Part II will feature women authors), though they go over some classics, from Tolkien’s Middle Earth, to Lewis’ Narnia, Zelazny’s Amber, Lloyd Alexander’s Prydain, Moorcock’s multiverse, and they venture into more obscure works by L. Sprague de Camp and Fletcher Pratt, among others. Scintillating!
The Immortality Debate13/09/2016 Duração: 20min
New research claims our kids or grandkids could live several hundred or even 1,000 years, and Kevin and Steve debate what it may mean to live for centuries or, if science leads us there, would humanity manage to ruin it all somehow? Meanwhile, they’re surprised to learn various camps have already staked out their turf, from “bio-conservatives” to “anti-aging crusaders” (really!)
No Man's Sky Part II: Amazing or Not?24/08/2016 Duração: 38min
No Man’s Sky is out! Kevin’s immersed himself in this bold new game, and his review? “Fantastic.” Steve asks Kevin whether and how it lives up to the hype, what the post-release controversy is about, whether there’s another storyline in there somewhere, and why this game has captured gamers’ and the public’s imaginations.
Punk's Not Dead?26/05/2016 Duração: 37min
Kevin & Steve ask whether the the energy & idealism of the music you grew up with is real, or just an illusion that dissipates with adulthood. Weaned on the punk rock & hardcore scenes, they try to stay open-minded about music being made today - but in the end, is music nothing more than entertainment, mere show biz? Hipsters beware, bands like The Clash, Minor Threat, The Jam, Misfits, The Specials get a mention, as do (deservedly) The Darkness; Grosse Pointe Blank with John Cusack is thrown in for good measure. Radiant!
Time: Illusion or Fact?10/03/2016 Duração: 28min
Kevin and Steve argue over whether time is an illusion or a very real part of the universe. Does time have an irreversible flow, or does time exist everywhere all at once? (Or nowhere at all?) And why does comedy legend Rip Taylor get a mention? Listen and share your thoughts at http://thedeeplyconflicted.tumblr.com.
