still from 2001: a baby in a glowing corona looks on at the edge of a planet in the darkness of space

Two Nerds was contacted by a friend of ours recently who put in some requests for podcat subjects. On the list were some titles we’d already tackled, like Another Earth and Shane Carruth’s Primer, and some we hadn’t yet, like…
