Q: I understand TANIS is real, is that why you have to change some names and bleep others?
A: Yes. We’re not willing to compromise people’s safety for any reason.
Q: How do I listen to TANIS?
A: That’s easy, just click on listen (look up)!
Q: How can I support TANIS?
A: That’s easy too, just click on support in the top right corner!
Q: When did you start working on TANIS?
A: 2004. Terry was obsessed with making a feature film version of TANIS. We had a team together and were getting ready to shoot in 2009, but other film stuff took over for a while.
Q: Have you read House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski?
A: We are aware of House of Leaves, but have yet to finish, not because it isn’t great, only because there was a lot going on when we picked it up. We did love The Dungeon Masters(sic) Guide, however (check out EP107 to see what we mean)!
Q: Have you read Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, or seen Stalker by Andrei Tarkovsky?
A: Yes and yes. Roadside Picnic is one of the greatest science fiction books of all time, and Stalker one of the best, if not the best science fiction movie ever.
Q: Have you read The Southern Reach Trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer?
A: Not yet. It sounds amazing, and we can’t wait to read it. All of us on "team Tanis" agreed to wait until after we finished Season Two before we dug into these books. We have them sitting on our shelves, waiting.
Q: What are Dr. Strand's thoughts on TANIS?
A: Up to this point, Dr. Stand has been unwilling to discuss what he lovingly refers to as "Nic's nonsense project."
