Old v. Gold 208: Jurassic Park

A theme park filled with actual flesh-eating dinosaurs: what could go wrong? That’s the question asked and answered by Steven Spielberg’s 1993 film Jurassic Park. Join us as we consider the movie’s Spielberginess, Goldblumosity, science, effects, child-character abuse, and fashion choices. And recoil in horror with us at a bit of fan fiction that goes to more bad places than you can imagine (and makes this podcast more explicit than usual).

“What was that?” “My ovaries shutting down because of your ascot.”
