Geekdom... squared

As someone interested in both The Expanse and public policy, the current iteration of The Churn podcast hits a sweet spot for me. It is a collision of two nerd cultures when smart-and-funny politics mavens Cox and Dresner discuss the characters, writing, and politics of The Expanse. Yet is more than the sum of its geekery. The podcast discussion enriches an already absorbing series. They discuss the show's interational/interplanetary/interstellar issues in *almost* as much detail as I want. More please! Occasionally they do let slip a spoiler or two, so listen with caution.
