Matt's things: 

- Terrace House (Japanese reality TV, available on Netflix) 

- Thunder Bay (true crime podcast)

- Universal Beings by Makaya McCraven (jazz album: check out Natalie Weiner's review)

 

Adrian's things:

- Zelda: Breath of the Wild (video game: check out Austin Walker's review)

- One Dapper Street (men's fashion youtube channel)

Adrian & Matt are joined by Seth Heasley of the Hugos There & Take Me to Your Reader podcasts to talk about our favorite SF movie adaptations. We each take turns picking one of our favorites, then talk about it as a group.

Which movies do we pick? What kinds of adaptations are our favorites? Which movies do we think are actually better than the book? You'll have to listen to find out.

Make sure to check out Seth's podcasts. A good place to start is his & Adrian's conversation on The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin on Hugos There (https://hugospodcast.com).
