After some quick intros, James talks about some of the research he's been doing for an upcoming project (10:00), and then they ask the most obvious question: How close are we to making Jurassic Park really happen?? (13:15) Then they get into what the thesis of the film is, and if James would want to sit down with the president and/or congress to start a bigger conversation (31:00).
Then they get into any personal takeaways they had (41:30), make an analogy to today's political climate (45:00), and end things with the big picture by covering the state of the JP franchise (52:00).
