On Thursday’s show: We recap the 2019 World Series ending with a win by the Washington Nationals.

Then we dive into the new Netflix horror movie Eli and talk about why people enjoy being scared for fun in the latest installment of our monthly series about the issues raised by popular TV and film, The Bigger Picture.

We’ll also include a couple of interviews from a recent show that got pre-empted by a Democratic debate, including a chat with Gilbert M. Gaul, author of The Geography of Risk: Epic Storms, Rising Seas, and the Cost of America’s Coasts, as well as poet and Rice University graduate Julia Guez.
