It’s a season two debrief with the people who know everything about Extant: the showrunners, Craig Shapiro and Liz Kruger, and the creator, Mickey Fisher! We were honored to talk to the brains behind the CBS summer series, and they were not shy about giving us some behind the scenes scoops.

Want to hear about how Charlie was almost killed off? Care to learn about the wormhole that almost ended the season? And what was the deal with that yellow meteor goo last season? These questions and many more are answered in this special interview edition of the Extant podcast. Read more…

EP22 – S2E12-13 – Choosing the Greater Enemy

The takedown of TAALR was the action-packed focus of the two-part season finale, which included Double Vision and The Greater Good. Everyone had their part to play in the final battle, and plenty of surprises kept us on the edge of our seats. But is this the series or the season finale?

Join us for show news, episode analysis, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Molly’s doppleganger, Lucy’s redemption, Ares’ cooperation, JD’s prophecy fulfilled, and TAALR’s cliffhanger ending. Read more…

EP21 – S2E11 – Einstein’s Regret

EP21 – S2E11 – Einstein’s Regret

The focus turns away from the hybrids in Zugzwang and focuses on a new enemy: TAALR! With a surprising visit to Calderon that doesn’t turn out as viewers might have expected, the price for taking down the true enemy might come at too great a cost. What will Molly do, and how will Julie and Charlie contribute to the fight given Julie’s current position?

Join us for show news, episode analysis, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about the loneliness of Calderon, the deepening relationships between Molly and JD as well as between Julie and Charlie, the short-sightedness of Stanton, and the true motivations of Lucy. Read more…

Join us for show news, episode analysis, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about JD’s confession of love, Toby’s change of heart, Stanton’s faith in the Humanichs, and who’s really behind the explosion at GSC HQ. Read more…

EP18 – S2E8 – Humans, Humanichs, and Hybrids, Oh My!

All of life fights to remain extant in Arms and the Humanich, whether it’s artificial, natural, or a mixture. Who has the right to continue to exist, and what measures can be taken to ensure their survival? These issues follow Molly and both of her sons in the latest episode of Extant.

EP17 – S2E6-E7 – The Evolution of Sentience

EP17 – S2E6-E7 – The Evolution of Sentience

A double episode deserves 50% more discussion as we tackle You Say You Want An Evolution and The Other, in which the hybrids motives become clearer and the Humanichs’ mission begins. Will Molly get caught in the middle with a virus that could kill her and friends that don’t believe what she believes: that the aliens can be trusted? And how will Ethan play into the ensuing battle?

Join us for show news, episode analysis, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Lucy’s mistrust in her human companions, JD’s struggle to maintain his belief in Molly’s mission, Ahdu’s tribe of offspring and whether they can be trusted, and Toby’s focus on the protection of the human race.

EP16 – S2E5 – Problems With Authority

EP16 – S2E5 – Problems With Authority

The problems with Ethan have to be sorted out in The New Frontier before work can continue on the virus or the Humanichs, but fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), Lucy takes matters into her own hands and makes the first confirmed hybrid kill. What will this mean for the future battle and for Molly, who seems to be showing more signs of alien-ness?

Join us for show news, episode analysis, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Toby’s intense pressure at work, Anna gleeful blindness to Lucy’s flaws, JD’s motivations for continuing his investigation, and Molly’s increasing lack of control. Read more…

EP15 – S2E4 – Code Talkers

EP15 – S2E4 – Code Talkers

Ethan and Lucy explore their own unique missions as Molly joins a new one in Cracking the Code. Can the alien invasion be treated like a viral outbreak? And is Molly being helped to create a killer virus that only attacks hybrids or is she being steered away from causing harm to her offspring? Both Molly and J.D. show their vulnerabilities this week, and we’re loving every minute of it!

Join us for show news, episode analysis, and our listener feedback segment! This week we talk about Molly’s confession to J.D., Charlie’s deception with Julie, Lucy’s manipulation of Ethan, and the larger theme of trust throughout this episode. Read more…
