philoscifiz podcast episode 15 – Super Mario Bros. (1993)
Out now – episode 15 of philoscifiz, an on-screen sci-fi & philosophy podcast I present along with Dr Matthew J. Barnard (Lecturer in Philosophy, Manchester Metropolitan University).
What if there are parallel worlds? Our human dominated world, and another, where dinosaurs survived and so evolved a reptile dominated world? And what if you could pass between them?
We go portal diving with the first ever film adapted from a video game: the big concept extravaganza of Super Mario Bros. (1993).
Along the way we explore the intertextuality of games, movies, and comics, and philosopher Gilles Deleuze on incompossible worlds.
