Pex Lives: A Doctor Who Podcast
James Murphy and Kevin Burns are both Certified Minor Internet Personalities with a shared love of Doctor Who. Explore the history of the show with them, as they watch classic serials and chat with each other each month about them. Each month, the pair will pick a classic serial to watch and then break down, exploring the themes, characters and production of the given story. There will also be jokes. Sometimes they may barely mention the show. New episodes every month.

The first part of a new Shabcast featuring Jack in conversation with James and Daniel (again), and for the first time Kit Power.  The subject is Oliver Stone's '90s political movies JFK and Nixon, and their relationship to actual politics and history.

  • Part of what makes conspiracy theories comforting is that they isolate the evil of society into particular people. If the Bad Stuff is happening because of certain people, well, you can just get rid of them and everything will be fine. If it's happening because of a huge number of people just making a few mistakes daily, or doing what they think is right, what everyone TELLS them is right, even if it turns out to be wrong...that's a lot harder to deal with. That might require introspection. It could require arguing with friends and neighbors. It may be a completely intractable problem that can only go away if certain incentives change. That's a scary thought.
