Simon Pegg Controversy, Sci-Fi Death Cults, and STAR TREK BEYOND

It’s happening again: Simon Pegg said a maybe-foolish, maybe-insightful thing and the internet is blowing the heck up. Let’s tackle his words of wisdom/garbage on today’s Nerdist News!

Join Dan Casey as he unpacks Mr. Pegg’s commentary on the infantilization of nerd culture, examines a hilarious fear of sci-fi geeks that consumed Scotland Yard in the late ’90s, and points the way toward some troubling hints at Star Trek Beyond‘s future.

Thanks for watching today’s show, get more Dan on the latest Dan Cave, and let’s have a civil discussion about Simon Pegg’s words in the comments below!
