Ransom engages in something between a hunt and a battle with an extraterrestrial shark and ends up finally meeting the dreaded Sorns. We talk a bit about the mythology of Malacandra and non-heroic protagonists.
It’s time for our Culturezoo summer series! For the next seven episodes we’re going to do a bi-weekly book club where we read three chapters of a book and… um… talk about it. The book we’ve picked is Out of the Silent Planet, by C.S. Lewis. In this episode we cover Chapters 1-3 where we meet Ransom, along with Weston and Divine who kidnap Ransom away from our terrestrial sphere.
In what may be an act of extreme foolhardiness, Levi, Rosalyn, and Zach attempt to review the entire Star Wars Disney canon, even movies that haven’t come out yet. We spend most of our time talking about The Force Awakens, Rogue One, The Last Jedi, and Solo.
This is a special Culturezoo episode where we are joined by Sam (11), Jane (9), Lucy (8), and Charlie (6) and talk about one of our family’s favorite comic trilogies, Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke. We cover all three books Zita the Spacegirl, Legends of Zita the Spacegirl and Return of Zita the Spacegirl. We learned a lot of lessons from these books and had a great time talking about it.
