Episode 68 with Begin Transmission: The Trans Allegories of The Matrix author Tilly Bridges

Ep. 68

On this episode of the Fancast, I dive into the world of one of my favorite sci-fi film series of the last twenty years with author Tilly Bridges as we discuss her new book 'Begin Transmission: The Trans Allegories of The Matrix'.

Begin Transmission is a comprehensive deep dive into the Matrix films and the trans allegories found within and it gave me a new perspective on the films and the world created by the Wachowskis. The book is available for sale from Amazon and Barnes & Noble from BearManor Media. If you click the Amazon link to order, you can help out the podcast and keep the transmission going.
