Episode #50 of the Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind podcast sees the team delve into their personal connections with genre fiction and the source material from which it comes from.
We look at small things that serve as personal irritations before looking at the situation from a broader lens including wider public reactions to situations that have involved recasting of a character's gender, race or sexuality. Isn't it fair that a filmmaker should be afforded the creative licence to take a story into new directions? How can a story or franchise even grow if it is continually expected to be relegated to decades-old confines?
Dan Collacott, Imran Mirza and Tee-J Sutherland tackle the question plus we also take time out to celebrate the milestone that is our fiftieth show!
