Jim and A.Ron saw Ridley Scott’s “The Martian” last night, starring Matt Damon, and have a lot to say about it. Note, the first part of the podcast is spoiler free, but then when we say we’re about to spoil things, that’s your cue to get out while the getting is good. Along the way, we talk about the trailers we saw for The Revenant, The Big Short, Joy, and Concussion.
If you are still hungry for more Martian goodness, might I recommend reading Andy Weir’s original book (The Martian) the film is based on? Then, I’d proceed to reading Robert Zubrin’s A Case For Mars, upon which most of the science of the book and film are based upon. And if that’s not enough, check out the Red/Green/Blue Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson.
