BTW, I've long thought having guests would (could) be a good idea. It's true though that any kind of public speaking is very difficult for some people. You don't know if it makes you uncomfortable until you do it, and most people never do it.

I am available to be interviewed on my extensive “2001: A Space Odyssey” knowledge and rare research findings. Of course, listening to me talk about 2001 might inspire you some of you to start swimming towards an island :D

Great episode. Really enjoyed all the guests and their pandemic picks. Any or all of them would be great additions as recurring guests in the podcast.

Great job to @Sam Posten and @Brian Dobbs with the followup questions to learn more about your guests and their choices.

Really enjoyed listening this weekend. :)

My Desert Island picks:

Three Movies
Big Trouble in Little China (1986)
This was a high-school favorite. It's fun, light-hearted, endlessly quotable, and filled with nostalgia.

Amélie (2001)
This is a favorite of my wife and mine's. It's from the end of the era when I was most into movies, as a young adult. It's joyful. And it has one of my all-time favorite scores, so I'll have good music on the island.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)
Finally, a movie from where I am now in life as a middle-aged-ish adult with a mortgage. The older I get, the fewer movies can re-wire my brain as they so easily did in my youth. Spider-Verse did that: it is the most amazing superhero movie I've seen in years. It is the most heartstoppingingly amazing animation experience I've had since Toy Story. And it is a wonderful story about friends and family.

Movie Franchise
Pixar Cinematic Universe
:)
MCU is the easy pick for shear quantity. But I don't really want to spend the rest of my days watching Avengers with a volleyball. And Star Wars...three movies from 30 years ago just isn't doing it for me right now. But if I can claim the Pixar oeuvre, that's pretty much everything I need cinematically.

TV Series
Futurama
I love this series. It's funny, smart, has a couple of truly heartfelt episodes, and some good commentaries. There are other great series, and I love modern streaming shows. But I'm on my third rewatch of Futurama currently, so I could get a fourth on my desert island.

An excellent choice.
