Upstream podcast: What we want from ‘Westworld’ season 2

This week, we’re back online with a discussion about Westworld season 2 theories, season 1 critiques, and thoughts about being rickrolled.

Parsec writers Gavia Baker-Whitelaw and Michelle Jaworski and Unclick editor Tiffany Kelly join us to talk about how the Westworld fan community has informed the show in the age of spoilers, what we’re looking forward to in season 2 (more Tessa Thompson), and what we didn’t like about season 1 (the Man in Black can sashay away). For all the heady intellectual theories about consciousness and humanity, Gavia is here to remind us that Westworld is still a “LARPing park.”

Plus! We’ve got streaming recommendations for your weekend, and realize that we all watched The Silence of the Lambs when we were way too young.
