You thought surveillance by The Machine was bad, this week, we talk about fandom and our best friend slash worst enemy, the fourth wall. We discuss its origins, the ways it’s changed with the advent of technology and the proliferation of fan culture, and the topics that plague us today: what constitutes a fourth wall break, and just what the hell we can do about it.
