CENK #65: "A Whole New World"
Episode #65 of the Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind podcast sees Dan, Imran and Tee-J turn their attention to resolving all of society's woes...
Tasked with the responsibility of establishing a new settlement to ensure that humanity survives, what would you do to make sure the same mistakes aren't replicated - would you focus on stopping war, outlawing religion, controlling childbirth? And what elements of human civilisation would you try to preserve? No easy task so tune in to hear which of us becomes a raging communist, an unwitting dictator and an affectionate nostalgic.
This episode of the Close Encounters... Minicast sees friend of the show MISTA VEE from Melbourne, Australia, return following his invaluable contribution to The Last Ronin episode (#06) marking this as the official launch of the DJ Supple & MC Lean show - it's a working title for now but all is explained in the podcast(!).
This time, Imran and Vahe discuss the latest Thor outing ('Love & Thunder', 2022) and conduct an extensive character analysis of Thor across his multiple appearances across the MCU to date. With a mix of average to negative reviews, discussion turns to Taika Watiti's impact on the character since 'Ragnarok' and asks whether a new take on the god is now needed. Where does the character of Thor go from here and how does he continue to fit into the ever-changing climate of the MCU?
