TMTYR Episode #38: Scientists Should Read Frankenstein (Colossus: The Forbin Project)

Recording right about the time of our second podcast anniversary, this time we discuss Colossus: The Forbin Project, adapted from DF Jones’s novel Colossus.

Many thanks to everyone who’s interacted with us in any way since we started doing this. It’s been a lot of fun and we look forward to many more awkward discussions in the future.

Colin says nucular repeatedly! Seth repeats the word “story” over and over in a single monologue! James thinks the movie title could fit an adult film! And we all agree scientists should be familiar with Frankenstein.

Featuring Seth Heasley, James Ralston, and Colin Kuskie.
