In this edition of our at-home movie club, we explore the world of the sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer. This French graphic novel, turned Korean action film, and now TV series is set in a post-apocalyptic world where all that is left of humanity is endlessly circling the globe in a train. Emily, Matt, and Nick break down this distopian future, geoengineering gone wrong, and how learning to survive in extreme environments applies to space travel.
Note to our listeners: This episode is about the world of Snowpiercer which is common to the books, film, and new TV show. We hope you find this world as interesting as we do, but before you go and watch the 2013 film, please note it is rated R for violence and is definitely not suitable for kids. If that's not your thing, you might enjoy the TV show or graphic novels instead.
