God, evolution, the rise of a living machine, theology, humanism and a Vulcan named Spock. It’s all in Robert Wise’s adaptation of Star Trek mythology. On this episode, Joe does a solo take on what might be the real meaning of the players and ideas behind the first feature of television’s most celebrated crew.

Brainwise,

Its a great series. The hosts are fun to listen to and they have some good insights into the films.

They also have a series of podcasts called Watching the Directors.

Netflix didn't have a copy of Photographing Fairies?
