As a special feature of The Fanbase Weekly podcast, the Fanbase Feature focuses on and celebrates a specific element of geek culture.
In this Fanbase Feature, The Fanbase Weekly co-host Bryant Dillon and special guests Corinna Bechko (writer – Green Lantern: Earth One, Avatar: Adapt or Die) and Tilly & Susan Bridges (writers – Begin Transmission, Monster High, the Star Trek Adventures RPG, Executive Producers of Pendant Productions) participate in a thorough discussion regarding Jurassic Park (1993) in light of the film’s 30th anniversary, with topics including the film’s efforts to treat the dinosaur characters as animals as opposed to monsters, if the film hampers its criticism of corporate greed by making John Hammond too likable, the true meaning of “life finds a way,” and more. (Beware: SPOILERS for Jurassic Park abound in this panel discussion!)
