Space the Nation


E4: No More Worlds Left to Conquer

Season 1, Ep. 4

Welp, that escalated quickly. Dan goes deep on international relations theories about how third-party nation-states respond to larger conflicts; Ana recalls everything she ever learned about post-modernism in order to deconstruct the Expanse's argument about nature versus nurture. Oh, and extended sidebar on the actual historical battle referenced in the title. But it's interesting, really! Also: thoughts on the prison industrial complex and how it might or might not change and wondering if Monica will write "The Looming Tower" of the attack on Earth.
