I know it's a bit ironically absurd to act like this particular podcast episode really matters, but I still feel like it genuinely does. We're taking HBO's epic one season masterpiece, Watchmen, and combining it with Nagel's epic chapter on The Absurd from the masterpiece book Mortal Questions. I've been thinking about some version of this episode and the next one probably since we started Philosophers in Space, and the Watchmen show delivered the perfect vehicle. Hopefully you're like me and Thomas and Nagel and these questions seem profoundly important to you, and hopefully the episode helps with your understanding of the question, if not actually answering it.
