In this episode, Josué and I examine Babylon 5 episode “Signs and Portents” from season 1. Half the fun of doing this with Josué is that I get to see the things I have already seen through new eyes. I sometimes will play right into his hand regarding the future, hinting at enigmas and shocks that wait around the corner. That’s fun. But what is most enjoyable is finding the tangents that we find in our discussion. This is especially true right now as we are working on second season episodes, but it begins here in this first season banter. We would love to know if you are taking the ride with us, so please let us know. But here is your koan for the day- What do you want? Can you tell us what you want, what you really really want?
Ok, Josué and I recorded this episode far before all of the things going on now in 2020. But protest has been with us more than ever since 2016. In this episode we examine the Babylon 5 Episode “By Any Means Necessary”. The episode itself is about dockworkers striking due to poor working conditions, and low pay. For Josué and I speaking about this episode, it is one of the most politically charged discussions we have had about Babylon 5. This is probably the start of Josué and I just feeling comfortable enough in our own attitudes that we are broadcasting, mostly without filter, our thoughts and feelings. In a sense, this is a darker episode, because we are talking about real world events through the eyes of Babylon 5. We had a great time with this one though. I believe we were both able to speak on a number of issues using Babylon 5 as the backdrop for the discussion. Please share and enjoy.
Josué and Woody discuss the “Survivors” episode of Babylon 5. We get some things wrong, second guess one another, and explore alcoholism and addiction in media.
In this episode of Conspiracy of Light, Josué Cardona and I explore episode the 10th episode of Babylon 5, Season 1, “Believers”. This story takes us deep into personal territory as well as metaphysical and psychological discussions about ethics, healing, and of course psychology. It’s the kind of episode that only Josué and I could do. Be warned, this episode is full of meaning of life type questions and could cause existential dread, or at the very least, cosmic whimpering.
This time around, Josué and I discuss the Babylon 5 Episode, “Deathwalker”. We talk about the deep dark secrets of the Dilgar race, as well as the secretive exploits of Ambassador Kosh.
