Show Notes

We did an interview! Since it’s not the normal format, we’re releasing this as a bonus halfway between normal episodes. And we took Peter Van Loon’s suggestion for alternate naming!
We talk here with Cailin Munroe from The Expanse all about a bunch of stuff: the role of the producer, on-set work, diaper butts, ship designs, physics FX, device and environment UI, space hair, dogs barking, matte paintings, 3D animated sets, the next form of the blue goo ☠️
