“Cold Equations” by X-Minus 1 and STOWAWAY by Netflix – SA365

This episode is why we created Strangers and Aliens! In this episode we:

  • Explore a classic sci-fi story (“The Cold Equations” by Tom Godwin)!
  • Review a new sci-fi movie (STOWAWAY, on Netflix now – don’t worry, we’re spoiler free about the movie . . . although the movie’s inspirations may spoil the movie . . .)!
  • Talk about Star Trek (specifically, “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one”)!
  • Play an old time radio episode from X-Minus One!
  • Talk about the philosophical morality thought experiment “Trolley Problem”!
  • Talk about Bible stories related to the sci-fi stories!
  • Talk about Biblical concepts related to the stories!
  • Have fun doing it!
