The Churn Episode 3: Steven Strait talks '80s movies, his abs, and the intensity of 'Godspeed'

WARNING: Spoilers for The Expanse Season 2 Episode 4, "Godspeed"

First, a quick thank you and a programming note. Thanks to all of our listeners and The Expanse fans, The Churn was one the top 40 TV/Movie podcasts on iTunes last week! Second, we hear/read all of your comments and are dedicated to producing a podcast with great content and equally great quality. Unfortunately, we recorded this week's episode in advance and due to Cher being infected with the protomolecule, she had to call in to the podcast with the rest of our guests. Going forward, we are moving to a new studio (YAY!) so our overall sound will improve.

Welcome to Episode 3 of The Churn, our post-show podcast about The Expanse. Each week during Season 2, The Expanse creators Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham (who you all know as James SA Corey) and Syfy Wire's resident The Expanse superfans -- Fangrrls Managing Editor Cher Martinetti and Editor-in-Chief Adam Swiderski -- take a deeper dive into the latest episode.

It was coming at the Roci crew from all sides this week, and it was stressful to watch. Earth fired nukes at Eros, Miller confirmed that space walks aren't really his thing, and an unexpected visitor stumbles upon the protomolecule and threatens to tell everyone. James Holden himself, Steven Strait, joins us this week to talk about playing the serious and idealistic Roci captain, his now (podcast) famous abs, and how he would be totally into an '80s workout montage next season. 

Now would be a really good time to issue another spoiler warning. If you haven't seen tonight's episode, definitely go do that first.
