I listened to this one again and wondered if you know anything about Storm Constantine, since I found some of the things she did with her Wraeththu universe pretty interesting and cool. There are significant stylistic and thematic differences between the initial trilogy published in the late 80s and the sequel trilogy published in the early 2000s, and she also published some fanworks set in the universe. I hadn't run into that level of chillness and acceptance towards fans or that much change in initial and later books in the same universe before. The change from first person to third person between the two trilogies was a big part of that. Also, magical hermaphrodites that present in pretty queer ways and supplant humanity seemed pretty rad to teenage me. Oh! and the way reproduction works in that series was interesting too. Anyway, thanks again! love the show!

I love this episode. I put off listening because I watched Alien and Aliens as a kid but haven't rewatched as an adult and have been meaning to. Anyway, this audio-dramatization sounds super cool! What's weird is that I actually had a dream as a teen where aliens very similar to those shown in Alien were around on a slightly future or AU earth and were essentially contagious. It was revealed later on in the dream that the conditions caused by the Aliens and the spread of the Alien transformations in humanity were spearheaded and manipulated all along by governmental and corporate powers. Anyway, I thought that was funny, given the plot of this possible other Alien 3 film(genetically driven Alien transformation and cyberpunk bits). Thank you for your podcasts, as always, but the subject matter and enthusiasm in this one made it a really good fit for me.

I'm with you in the extended sand-trout conversation zone. Dune is super fascinating. I am similarly skeptical of this prequel series being anything even close to the vein of what made the Dune books that I got through so great. We'll see, I guess! I'm also not convinced that filmed media can adapt it properly in general BUT I did read that before Star Wars came out and changed the special effects game that adapting Dune as an anime was something that was discussed. I Want That Anime. Limited series style. i want those facial expression closeups and long establishing shots of various landscapes on Dune and some mind bending visual interpretations of what it might be like to sense the fabric of time. I also want the Hayao Miyazaki adaptation of Pippi Longstocking that fell through, but alas, some things just don't come together.

I like this a lot. Returning to and transforming a previous work to make it more your own or more current to the truths and skills that you've been able to unfold since the initial exploration is something that I wish were more of a thing. It has become a bit more common in the visual arts community, and I think that the value has really proven itself there. I hope that other creative people (and even more visual artists, honestly) try this practice. Cool episode.

Exciting! I hope the new format will make it easier and better moving forward for you and the community you've been making space for and nurturing. As for tuesday/wed/thurs suggestions: more regarding the netflix live-action Sabrina would be great! Also, maybe you you could talk about more of the Dark Crystal backstory that wasn't covered in the films? and Dune. Also, thanks for the shout out. I'm not as obsessed with theory episodes as I perhaps made it seem! Theory, recap, worldbuilding, deep dives, anything with heavy emphasis on exploring context and implications is my jam. It all sounds awesome and I'm excited to see where it goes.
