Jurassic Mansion

This time on Talking Screens Nick and Andrew break down the newest film in the Jurassic Park Franchise - Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom. From the exciting evacuation of Isla Nublar to the ridiculous haunted house of a mansion that dominates the films second half - there is a lot to enjoy and a lot to make fun of in this new film. Jump into this episode of Talking Screens and laugh along with the guys' snarky breakdown of Dr. Henry Wu's House of Horrors. Music for our show was made available by Weird Heat – the podcast musical project by Brian Altano and Max Scoville.

Lunar Loner: Isolation and Identity in Moon (2009)

Nick and Andrew dive into questions about memory, personal identity, and people's relationships to work.
