"Logan's Run" (1976) explores a society where everyone dies aged
30. In the most campy, over-the-top 70s scifi romp imaginable, it
explores fear of ageing, fear of death, fear of infantalization...
and fear of Baby Boomers.
About the Podcast
Andrew Heaton and an army of nerds plunge deep, deep into films, books, and TV shows to ask: what's science fiction really about? What is The Twilight Zone really exploring? What are the underlying themes of Star Trek? What is the worldview of Star Wars? Also sometimes Heaton performs comedy on other planets.
