EP. 176 — Season 2 Finale

Paul & Amy close the book on Unspooled’s second season with some hard choices – which movies covered during the past year of the podcast are going to space? They agree on the fate of a low budget horror classic, disagree on including a groundbreaking romance, and Josh & Devon get in the mix to advocate for an indie auteur’s most poignant film. Plus: NASA astronomer Michelle Thaller helps us with the logistics of sending our Top 100 to space, and explains why Contact depicts the life of a scientist better than most films.
Next week, Season 3 kicks off with The Exorcist and a new horror series!
