I was recently invited onto one of my favourite podcasts – Themes and Memes – to discuss The X-Files season 10. We discussed how the new series goes overboard in trying to appeal to the conspiracy subculture and what this might mean:

Given that this latest season is obviously designed to reflect modern conspiracy culture, we examine the relevant themes within all 6 episodes, before asking the most important question. Why?
