One thought on “The hidden meaning of Blade Runner 2049

  1. I just tried listening to this podcast but I couldn’t understand a thing that was said while movie dialogue was playing in the background at literally the same time. I hope this improves because what I was able to hear was interesting. I can’t imagine what trying to listen to this speech is like for someone with difficulty hearing or a learning disability would be like.
