What does it mean to be "alive"? To get ready for the release of Blade Runner 2049 this weekend, the Story Cauldron guys jump back to the original Blade Runner first released in 1982. Weaving and winding around Philip K. Dick's science fiction, John Searle's philosophy of mind, and the history of film noir, Garrett confronts his fear of A.I. once again as Bobby and Anthony muse on the meaning of life. Catch this episode before it's lost in time - like tears in the rain.
