Show Notes

The Film

90s, Leeloo’s thermal tape, awesome hair.

Alien Species

Space turtles, space orcs, space squids, space humans. Archeology and ancient mythology. Chamber design.

Malevolent Evil

The possible nature of the evil space-mass. Zorg’s motivations. Broken window fallacy.

200 Billion Citizens

Overpopulation. Governance over interstellar distances. Real-time FTL space comms. Space wizards. Space borders.

Building Leeloo

3d printing skeletons. Genetic design and genetic data storage.

The Stones

Sufficiently advanced technology indistinguishable from magic. Good and bad places to smuggle 20 pounds of stone. “Space opera.” Impossible series of vocal notes. Saved by love, or something.
