Into It is a weekly pop culture podcast by Elle Collins. In each episode, Elle is joined by one or more guests for a conversation about a specific pop culture obsession. The show will host a wide variety of interesting people and give them a chance to talk about the things they love. The guests include poets, dancers, writers, editors, teachers, artists, and journalists. The topics include movies, TV shows, books, comics, and music. Into It's scope is deliberately broad, leaving its future wide open.

Into It 55: Alien with Meredith Yayanos

Musician and writer Meredith Yayanos is on the show to talk about one of her favorite movies (and one of Elle's), Ridley Scott's 1979 classic Alien. Mother Ripley versus Non-Mother Ripley, the importance of grit and grime in sci fi, the possibilities of actual alien life, and the eternal human fear of technology.

The music at the end of the episode is from Meredith's project The Parlour Trick. You can buy the album on Bandcamp.

You should also listen to Meredith discuss Dune on the Unjustly Maligned podcast.
