The Canon podcast hosted by Devin Faraci and Amy Nicholson is always a must-listen, but this week's episode is even more essential than usual. They're discussing the relative merits of Alien versus Aliens, live at the UCB Theater, with special guest star Kumail Nanjiani, of Silicon Valley and the great Indoor Kids podcast fame. Near the end there's also a cameo by Ridley Scott DVD über-producer Charles De Lauzirika, responsible for the Alien Quadrilogy and Anthology sets, plus numerous other releases.

The live format means that it's a bit longer than usual, but the whole thing is worth your attention. Maybe the eeriest thing is how similar many of the participants' arguments sound compared to comments made here on the ODeck. You guys, it's almost like they've been listening to us!
