As a special feature of The Fanbase Weekly podcast, the Fanbase Feature focuses on and celebrates a specific element of geek culture.

In this Fanbase Feature, The Fanbase Weekly co-host Bryant Dillon is joined by special guests Matt and John Yuan (writers - Love Town, Serving Supes / Deputy Publishers at 1First Comics) and Daniel Corey (writer - Image Comics' Moriarty, Red City / singer/songwriter) to participate in a thorough discussion regarding Blade Runner (1982) in light of the film's 40th anniversary, with topics including what the film has to say thematically, if Deckard is a replicant or not, if Deckard should be considered the film's villain, and more. (Beware: SPOILERS for Blade Runner abound in this panel discussion!)
