Chris Wilson joins me to talk all about his experiences with photography.

We focus on his work with Canadian mountain landscapes, traveling to Australia, and doing photoshoots for cosplayers. We talk about the different tactics and techniques that Chris uses for his work. We provide tips and tricks for your own photography, while also figuring out what makes for impactful characters or beautiful natural scenes.

Blade Runner (1982) w. Dustin Meisinger

Ep. 86

Dustin Meisinger returns to continue our breakdown of movies set in 2019; this week is the grandaddy of them all: Blade Runner (1982).

We talk about their trench coats and flying cars, we discuss the impracticalities of pyramidal skyscrapers, and we also try to decode the blurred line between human and robot (by asking a lot of questions about robot genitals). Also we didn’t watch 2049, so please ignore our ignorance.

CW: This episode involves discussions of consent & sexual assault, because Blade Runner is a film made in the 80’s.

54 – Chef’s Table: Nancy Silverton

We return to Chef’s Table to see what Nancy Silverton is all about; apparently it’s doing a whole lot of different things. We explore bread-making obsessions, coaxing flavour out of ingredients, and grilled cheese nights!

Plus we provide some channel updates right at the top of the episode, so don’t miss that.

53 – The Founder (2016)

We watched 2016’s The Founder and now we’re talking about it!

Sophie & Mitch go back to a ‘simpler’ time, when a man like Ray Kroc could get away with pretty much anything – including swindling a pair of burger bros out of a multi-billion dollar business, while still keeping their namesake. We talk about this, deliciously shot burgers, and protagonist sympathies & so much more.

52 – Food on the Go (2017)

Sophie & Mitch go over a delightful little documentary about Italian food: Food on the Go (E il cibo va) (2017).

How does food travel and how does it change when it does? What happens to Italian cooking and techniques when they immigrate to the United States or to Argentina? All of these questions are at play in this week’s episode.

51 – Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Heat

We conclude our adventure with Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat – appropriately enough – with an episode all about Heat.

Samin travels back to her roots in Berkeley, California to re-learn the lessons cooking with open flames teach. We look into oven science, cook with moms, and have people draw why we’re in the kitchen.

50 – Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Acid

Finally on track with the titling in Netflix’s Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. Episode 3 is all about Acid

We’re visiting the Yucatan in order to see all the different things to use acid for. With a wide variety of citrus, a surprising type of honey, and a few other acidic ingredients, Samin Nosrat shows off how all of this balances your food.

Hellboy II features an amazing cast, gorgeous visuals, a villain who were not sure why he is a villain and drunk Ron Pearlman singing Barry Manilow. What more could you possibly ask for?

All that and more this week on 2 Nerds in a Basement!
