Oi! Spaceman: Adventures in Media Criticism
Class Anxieties and Dating Fascists (Kryten)

In this episode, Shana and Daniel are joined by Jb Anderton of the Who37 podcast in discussing the first episode of Red Dwarf Series II: Kryten. What it means to be an artificial life form, oppressed domestic servants, and why one shouldn't date a fascist are among the topic of conversation. Also, a random Spinoza reference if that's your thing.
