The first two episodes were directed by Ridley Scott who also serves as an executive producer for the show. Raised By Wolves centers on two androids —Father and Mother — tasked with raising human children on a planet named Kepler-22b after the Earth was destroyed by a catastrophic war.

In this episode, Michael and Chris explore the multifarious and often weighty themes present in Raised By Wolves relating to religion and technology, discuss legendary director Ridley Scott’s role in the production, piece together the jaw-dropping serpent-inclusive finale of the season, and speculate on what might lie ahead and Season Two — and much, much more.
