This week, we have part two of our discussion with screenwriter, author, and film critic C. Robert Cargill, which we recorded a few days after our live podcast at CONvergence 2014. That’s right: if you were at our CONvergence panel, there is still more podcast to enjoy!

Once again, we apologize for the sound quality of this week’s episode. We recorded this session on the same night as our episode with Meghan Murphy, which means we were still recording with that damned Rock Band microphone. (Don’t ever think it’s a good idea to try to record a podcast with a Rock Band microphone. You’re probably better recording with an iPhone. Lesson learned.) Anyway, we cleaned up the audio as best as we could.

  1. Mainstream blockbuster where the primary male and female protagonists don’t hook up by the end: Aliens. There’s interest between Ripley and Hicks, but the story they’re in doesn’t give them an opportunity to explore it. Which is refreshing as it further heightens just how fast the situation is building and how much other stuff they have to deal with, yet still doesn’t rob them of a human connection.
