Best Discussion of Human Identity And The Tuvix Voyager Episode Ever

Scifi editor extraordinaire John Joseph Adams has just posted a new episode of his podcast, Geek's Guide To The Galaxy, and it's packed with weird goodness - including the world's only thoughtful discussion of the Tuvix episode of Voyager.

The highlight of the episode is Adams and co-host David Barr Kirtley interviewing Robin Wasserman, author of Skinned, about how you transfer human consciousness into a high-tech body. This later kicks off a whole discussion between Adams and Kirtley about whether transporters are really killing you and then creating a perfect copy at the other end of the transporter beam. And that in turn leads to actual intelligent commentary on the Tuvix episode - you know, where Tuvok and Neelix are merged into one Super Awful Being as a result of a transporter accident? Yeah.
