  1. Loved the Superman discussion by Alex. Since seeing the movie (and loving it) the religious iconography has been bugging me. I was wondering if it was a result of inevitable theme mirroring or intended for other reasons, and this has certainly made it clearer.

    Great podcast

  2. Great episode everyone. But I think my favourite contribution this week was Tom Morris talking about the gay cure app.

    Balancing the obvious disgust about such potentially harmful nonsense with the free speech issues is indeed complex, and kudos to Tom for acknowledging just how complex an issue that is and not trying to pretend there are any easy answers.

    Also, great to make such serious points with such good quality humour as well.
