EP. 206.9b — Inception

Paul & Amy go deep into 2010’s mind-bending Christopher Nolan heist film Inception! They gawk at the protagonist’s name, learn the origin of the famous “braaam” sound, and ask whether Nolan’s cerebral vision of blockbuster filmmaking has aged well. Plus: What’s the actual longest-lived parasite in the human body?
Next week Unspooled’s summer blockbuster series concludes with Mad Max: Fury Road! You can join the conversation for this series on the Unspooled Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/unspooledpodcast, and on Paul’s Discord at https://discord.gg/ZwtygZGTa6.
