, [00:00:00] this is beyond the big screen podcast with your host, Steve Guerra. Welcome back to beyond the big screen today, we are very happy to be joined by Eric of the reconsider podcast. And today we're going to take a deep dive into the movie blade runner 2049. And if you listened to last week's episode, we talked about blade runner from 1982.
So these are two great episodes to listen to back to back. Uh, so I highly suggest you go back and listen to. Episode, but it's not required, obviously, uh, not so much because you need that as background knowledge for this movie or episode it's just because it was a great show. So thank you so much, Eric, for being on today.
Yeah, my pleasure. I love your show and I love this movie and I love talking about great. Thank [00:01:00] you. So reconsider as a podcast about politics and news, but it's really much more than just the news of the day sort of thing that you can get on TV or radio Zander and Erik, which I'm sad to say. Zander, wasn't able to join us today.
But they help you contextualize current politics and history and the broader forces and in political theory. Reconsider helps you rise above the one-liners the 140 character politics and the tribal narratives, their motto is we don't do the thinking for you and they really don't. And that's why I think it's such an amazing podcast.
Do you have anything you could add to that, Eric? No, thanks, man. I, I think one of the things that I really like about reconsiders that Zander and I don't always agree on everything and we do a great job. I think showcasing how to discuss stuff in a way. Um, you know, in a way, which we're really learning.
And one of these days I want to do a behind the scenes episode where we actually, [00:02:00] uh, you know, cause we build these, we build these episodes out with a lot of disagreement and then we do a bunch of research and, and learn some stuff as we go. So I kind of want to do one of these blind to, to show a little more of how we do that.
But that's my, my favorite part is, is whenever we disagree and it's a good time. Yeah. It's a really cool, I'd love to listen to an episode like that. Now, um, this movie blade runner 2049 is currently in the theaters. If you're listening to this show in the 2017, 2018 time period, it stars Ryan Gosling as K Harrison Ford reprising his role as Decherd there's Robin Wright, Penn, and a bunch of other great actors.
It was released in October of 2017. We will definitely have a few spoilers in this episode. So I think this is, yeah, but I think this is a good way to help you understand the movie
