How Is Technology And Science Portrayed in Movies and on TV? – Episode 082

December 6, 2016

How technology and science are portrayed in movies and TV is always changing. Science fiction writers have dealt with this for years, but what about non-science fiction stories. How are these things treated in stories about our everyday lives?

Brent and Erik also check in about their writing. Brent is preparing for a new experiment that might become a book—”Five cities in five years.” And Erik talks about the first draft of a science fiction novel, tentatively titled “That Time in Venice.” If you want to skip the check-in and get right to the main topic, skip ahead to 3:45.
