Welcome to the latest episode of Who Won the Week, a weekly podcast in which Blastr staffers Adam Swiderski, Aaron Sagers and Dany Roth look back at the week that was and the stories that are blowing up the geek-o-sphere.

This week, we're joined by Blastr Contributing Editor Tara Bennett as we take a look at one of the best movies -- sci-if or not -- of the year: Denis Villeneuve's Arrival, starring Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner. Why is this ode to language, communication and human connection must-see, especially at this moment in time? Find out as we break it all down in our latest look at the week in geek.
