I recently had the pleasure of being on Timothy Westmyer’s Super Critical podcast, which is a deep dive into pop culture that surrounds nuclear weapons. Westmyer is a lovely, funny dude who knows nuke-related real world stuff, and therefore can actually speak to SCIENCE. I can — and did — speak to Fallout-related stuff.
Timothy has other intriguing episodes on depressing pieces of pop culture such as Threads. I’ve actually not yet tackled his Twilight Zone-themed episodes, even though I covered some of them on this very blog.
Give his podcast a listen. Hopefully you’ll find me on it again sometime. Heck, demanding to be a guest worked quite well the first time! (Literally demanded. Politely, but firmly. I regret nothing.)
