Ep238: 2001: A Millennial Odyssey

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast touches the monolith with Cole Rush of Cole Tries New Things! Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey is an undeniably important film, but does the forty-nine-year-old classic transcend the generational divide between Gen-X and Millennial? And does this divide really even exist in the context of movies?

Ian and Cole recount their experience of seeing a new print of A Space Odyssey at the Music Box Theatre's 70MM Film Festival (which runs now through July 15th), and first-timer Cole helps elaborate on some decades-old mysteries that repeat viewer Ian still grapples with.

Also, Ian revisits a Chicago Reader piece he wrote last year, and offers a kinda/sorta mea culpa.

The joke's on you: Episode 238 can read lips!
