Episode 40: Strange, Horrible and Who - the Egotism of Genius

 

This week the Dragons tackle all the Drs - Strange, Horrible, Who, Frankenstein and Stark - in an effort to get behind modern depictions of the evil genius and the heroic genius. Just what does this preference for cleverness over pure brawn have to say about how society has evolved? What attracts us to it and how do we make ourselves comfortable with the idea? What are the perils and pitfalls of a brain bigger than average? Find out in this episode as SFF authors J.A.Ironside and M.E.Vaughan wheel in a large selection on the metaphorical gurney.
