#282. Cibola Burn, ep.1 (The Expanse #4)

June 14th, 2020

Kenn recaps, Stephanie endures, and Todd promises not to cry (ha ha) in this episode on Cibola Burn, the fourth book in The Expanse series by James S.A. Corey. The panel seems a little confused at the start about whether or how much they enjoy this book, but ultimately the consensus seems positive. Is it positive enough to continue with the series? We might have to wait until part 2 to find out!

Disney & the Art of Storytelling

June 11th, 2020

Why do other parks and other studios often fall short of what Disney is able to create? If you're not a mega Disney fan, then buckle up, because this is a group of unapologetic mousketeers.

Todd, Kenn, and Stephanie are back, once again recording remotely for their second conversation about Abaddon's Gate, book 3 in The Expanse, by James S.A. Corey. Great times are had by all, which is made apparent by the fact that a simple laptop microphone clearly cannot handle Todd's laugh.
