Episode 11 of the philoscifiz podcast: eXistenZ (1999)

Out now – episode eleven of philoscifiz, an on-screen sci-fi & philosophy podcast I present along with Dr Matthew J. Barnard (Lecturer in Philosophy, Manchester Metropolitan University).

In this episode we get trapped in a Cronenberg film!

Because – it seems – you have to play the game to find out why you’re playing the game.

Follow us as we tumble down a mole hole and enter the world of eXistenZ with the demoness Allegra Geller. Or do we?

Technophobia becomes realist terror for the anti-gamer resistance while the film seen through the lens of Zola’s naturalism uses gaming to critique the reality of the real world. Or does it?
