Dave’s feeling a bit concerned for the future of the world these days. As a consumer of science fiction movies and books, he’s long noticed a theme therein: that of the old people holding on to the reigns of power, both economic and political, while the young people struggle for a foothold. As society continues to skew older–with medicine becoming better and better at keeping the elderly healthy longer–will the youngsters lose whatever agency they have? John Pienta, Nick Sparr, Tony Rosenberg and Taz Khalid humor Dave by talking about it. Also, since Tony’s here, there is somehow more talk of poop.
