episode 99: FFR 99: Ad Astra

This week on FFR, we’re joined by science YouTuber Trace Dominguez to talk about the new sci-fi film Ad Astra! Our conversation covers whether or not the movie is any good (and whether or not Brad Pitt is any good in it), what it's really all about, frustration with the fact that the stand-in for humanity in stories striving to be about universal experiences is so often a white man, the film’s depiction of the moon as a place where capitalism runs rampant, and the accuracy (or lack thereof) in some of the film’s scientific ideas and terminology.
