5.1 - THAT PODCAST with TERRY GILLIAM... in which the truth is out there – PART ONE

THAT PODCAST... in which the truth is out there, we jump down the conspiracy theory rabbit hole, let A.I. run our lives for a while, and wonder if democracy stands a chance - PART ONE


From one epic twist to the next, from cliff-hanger to nail-biter, the last year has tested anyone’s suspension of disbelief in reality. Perhaps it is not surprising then that there has been a huge surge in the amount of people promoting and subscribing to conspiracy theories. Acclaimed director Terry Gilliam goes down the rabbit hole to sort the fact from the fiction.

 

In part 1, he is joined by co-host Mark Kermode, to delve into the prophetic film Twelve Monkeys. We hear original commissions from playwrights Kimber Lee and Gary Owen, as well as an interview with Professor Stephan Lewandowsky.
