Before the release of the brand-new Netflix series, the guys go
back to the source with Richard K. Morgan’s 2002 postcyberpunk
novel, "Altered Carbon." In part one of their coverage they try
something a little different by beginning with a robust NON-SPOILER
section for anyone curious about the novel but wanting to stay
unspoiled for the series. They begin by talking about the author’s
bio and career, the premise of the novel’s tech, the background of
main character Takeshi Kovacs, and the mystery surrounding the
murder of Laurens Bancroft. They end the non-spoiler talk with a
debate about the philosophical questions raised by the sleeve-tech
in the novel.
In the second part of the episode, they get into plot and describe Kovacs’ investigation and all the salacious things he uncovers, discuss some particularly graphic scenes, then end by theorizing on who will ultimately be revealed to be the murderer.
