Space Junk - Space Movies with Dr Benjamin Pope – Part 2

Space Movies and the Meaning of Everything (with Dr. Benjamin Pope) – Part 2

Introduction

In this episode, I bring you part 2 of my conversation with NASA Sagan Fellow Dr. Benjamin Pope, a conversation ostensibly about space movies, but at this point so off the rails that I'm almost embarrassed to give it that title. We launch straight in after having watched Grimes' music video 'we appreciate power' and our chat quickly devolves to AI apocalypse as the logical end to industrial capitalism.
