Finding Nuance in Noise

Podcasts can be meticulously crafted or serendipitously spontaneous, and this episode emerged from the latter—a conversation that evolved naturally from a stinger into a full-blown discussion. We found ourselves deep in dialogue about navigating discussions around contentious issues that often attract negativity and vitriol.

Though we might get a bit punchy, we hope it lends charm and levity to an otherwise solemn topic. Feedback is always welcome; visit for all the ways you can reach out and become part of the conversation.

Also, we’re excited to announce our week-by-week coverage of Star Wars: Andor. Kickstarting with a spoiler-free primer episode this Wednesday at 8:30 pm, we’ll carry on through the series finale. Join the live stream on, and listen to the episodes the following Thursday morning on the Star Wars Universe Podcast.

The book Paul referenced, Shijak: To Begin: A Modern Martial Arts Story by Kathryn Yang, can be found here.

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
