The Galaxy is Ours
Space Bras is a bi-weekly podcast where two best friends discuss the intersection of science fiction and feminism. Each episode, co-hosts Kate Whitey and Mary Johnston unpack a genre they love and social justice issues that matter now.
On this, our latest episode, Mary and Kate take a deep gravity defying dive into milk-gas filled room at the heart of Denis Villeneuve’s 2016 Film Arrival.
You can view Arrival on Amazon Prime, and while you’re there why not pick up your own copy of Slaughterhouse Five https://amzn.to/2rvRz3S
