Is there hope on the horizon for the Boulder train? Or is it time to let go of those plans?
The Denver metro area’s rail system mostly neglects the dense, walkable parts of the city. Why is that?
Listen to S2E18: EDGE OF TOMORROW from Space the Nation. Ana and Dan can’t believe you found coffee! Wait, have we had this conversation before? "Groundhog Day goes to war" turns out to be much better than any movie with seven or eight different screenwriting teams should be. What about Tom Cruise makes watching him die so delightful? Is the one kiss in this movie one kiss too many? If we designed those drop-ships, did we maybe deserve to lose? There is IR in this movie.
As a special treat for Incomparable membership month, Deb and Erika bring you a taste of the fun members get — by sharing their very first members-only special from 2017!
Deb and Erika are joined by Lisa Schmeiser as they discuss “Goon”, the 2011 sports comedy about bros, fighting, and what it means to be part of a team. Loosely based on the life of enforcer Doug Smith, the Beginner’s Puck crew breaks down the hockey stereotypes, hockey truths, and how this bro-iest of bro movies is weirdly enlightened.
Listen to S2E14: ROGUE ONE (PATRONS) from Space the Nation. Dan and Ana just have the pilot give the plans DIRECTLY TO THE REBELS, but decide to watch the movie anyway. Can you make a great movie entirely premised on a ret-con? Does it take extremists to goad rebellions into action? How would Adorno feel about all this? There is IR in this movie.

She talked with Josh about her experience and the psychological research into personality change – and about what life might be like if we took more control over our personalities.
