EP. 205.6 — Contact
Paul & Amy reach out to 1997’s Robert Zemeckis extraterrestrial encounter film Contact! They learn about the long journey Carl Sagan’s story took to the screen, ask whether Matthew McConaughey’s character is too daffy, and debate the existence of God and aliens. Plus: How did they get Bill Clinton to cameo?
Next week Unspooled’s space series continues with Alien!
