We interlink with Denis Villeneuve’s “Blade Runner 2049” and discuss:

  • Building on the original’s visuals, ideas, et al;
  • Story and writing, Joi as exposition and expansion of what it means to be human;
  • Special guests Christopher Menges and Cassandra Lopez who work at Weta Workshop and worked on the miniatures of Blade Runner 2049;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.
