About this Episode

We're The Jacksway Collective.

This week's platter consists of Alfonso Cuarón's exquisite film Children of Men (2006). Jhana, Brendan, and Oliver speculate whether or not an ethical framework can exist in such a dystopian-like society. If so, what does that ethical framework look like? It's a juicy discussion cooked to perfection.

Oh, and Oliver may have been naked during the Google Hangout. But we'll never know.

Listen to The Jacksway Collective talk philosophy or fiction every week. A podcast where 20-somethings have in-depth, academic(ish) discussions about whatever the hell they want.
