TPToA Podcast 270 – Severance

A cerebral sci-fi that questions the nature of work/life balance entirely.
Ideas driven Sci-Fi that is light on the science, but heavy on the existential dread. Slow burning, cold and alienating, but at the same time questioning human nature and the psychosis of workplaces.

The cliffhangers are hard on the nerves, you want more!
the possibility of them dropping the ball in season 2 is petrifying.
it's very cold and odd, which isn't going to be everyone's melon party

Lumon Industries does not condone your Innie listening to this podcast, approved waffle party podcasts however, are encouraged.

This week we’re talking about the magnificent weirdness fresh from the mind of Ben Stiller, that is Severance on Apple TV.

Dion and Quinny may be the Innie and Outie halves of the one person, but Jill is definitely a member of the inscrutable Board. Peta’s innie would would have written a witty response here, but it is outside the scope of her current workload.

A huge thank you to all of you Lumon employees joining in on the corporately approved live-chat during the Twitch stream waffle party this week, and each Tuesday night… forever.  If you haven’t done so before, please report to the Wellness Department at 7:30pm next Tuesday to be a part of the approved “fun”.

Special love and thanks goes to those un-severed employees who have financially bolstered this podcast via our Ko-Fi jar and now also by subscribing on Twitch! Your generosity is always appreciated and Lumon Industries thanks you.

If you feel inclined, “drop us a sub”. The more subscriptions we get, the more Emotes you get! And get enough you could be in line for a finger trap, or even a Music Dance Experience featuring “defiant jazz”. Every bit of your support helps us to keep our refining numbers up.

Don’t fret if you can’t be there for the recording though as you can catch them on Youtube usually later that very night. Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss them!
