Pop Life: Snowpiercer- It's the End of the World, But Not As We Know It

Dystopian movies and novels have been all the rage recently, and you might feel like if you've seen or read one of them you've seen all they have to offer. Well here's a twist that might pique your interest. What if I told you this one takes place during the second ice age and is set on a train that travels the world?

On this episode of Pop Life, Joe Lee chats with Dr. Kendall R. Phillips, Professor of Communications and Rhetorical Studies at Syracuse University about the movie and now televistion series, Snowpiercer. Can the plot from the movie survive as a series? How do the two compare? What should we expect if we're tuning into the series without having seen the movie? You'll hear that and more on this episode of Pop Life.
