We've trapped two philosophers in deep space for your amusement. To stave off space madness, they're beaming back podcasts where they overanalyze science fiction to mine it for delicious philosophical concepts. Tune in to our fun little experiment, with samplings from Black Mirror, Star Trek, Rick and Morty, and many more! Live long and philosopher.
