Episode 35: IT (2017) Review

Brad Nelms

I am back to talk about the new 2017 release of IT. The latest in a long line of adaptations of Stephen King novels. This episode isn't really a review, its is maybe more of a comparison between the novel and the movie, but possibly not in the way that you expect. SPOILER WARNING! if you haven't seen the movie yet you may want to hold off on listening to this for now.

Episode 34: The One About "Metro 2035"

Brad Nelms

This episode I not only talk about the latest book in the "Metro" series, Metro 2035 but I also give my thoughts on the series as a whole. I have mixed feelings on the subject and this episode contains huge spoilers. So if you were considering reading Metro 2033, 2034, or 2035 you may want to check them out first so I don't ruin a phenomenal series for you. #Metro2035

Episode 33: Happy Birthday Bertrand Russell!

Brad Nelms

May 18th marks the birthday of influential British Philosopher Bertrand Russell. Russell had a huge impact on me as I was getting my undergraduate degree in philosophy. I want to share with you an essay he wrote. I think that philosophy, and more specifically, Russell's work is still very important to our modern age.
