Is seeing Ender’s Game a political action? 

The science fiction novel “Ender’s Game” has been a part of the sci-fi canon for the past 30+ years and with it’s huge new blockbuster movie release, it’s bigger than ever. But its author, Orson Scott Card, has inspired more debate than the novel itself. Card has been labeled homophobic, racist, and a handful of other distasteful things, and the opinions held by Card have created a TON of anger and opposition. But now that “Ender’s Game” has been made into a movie, this leads to a big question: should you see it? Does buying a ticket to a film equal an endorsement of the creator’s ideas? OR should you join the bandwagon of boycotts against the film? Should you avoid it based on your moral beliefs? Watch the episode to find out more!
