Episode 48: The Pantone Problem - Part One

In this long-awaited two-part episode, Kushal and Karan discuss the ever-important topic of race in society and films as well as the history of biased movie themes.  

**Kushal misquotes an old statistic - The U.K. Is now 12% BAME, not 4%, as revealed by the Race and Diversity Audit 2017 that was released after this episode was recorded. This does not change the framing of the questions asked.

For references, see part two's description.

Episode 46: Sci-Fi, Futurism, and Challenge Accepted

In this episode, Karan and Kushal discuss Sci-Fi as a genre, as well as films within the genre, including the recently-released Alien Covenant, how Alien changed the genre and the impact that it's had. A challenge is also issued that could potentially change the course of the way both Kushal and Karan think. The shock!
