Ancillary Justice: Part Three

It's the holiday season, so as is tradition it's time for us to fix one of the holidays (14:05 to skip). Dan embraces the Radch jewelry game can for sure pull off a big belt buckle. We've got the perfect counter to the magic gun used in this book. And finally, does anyone know how this emperor thing works?

The Rook by Daniel O'Malley starting next week!

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

Ancillary Justice: Part Two

Dan starts this episode off with a little story time (11:00 to skip). Dan proposes a theory that everything is tea and Luke wants One Esk to be maybe a touch more empathetic. Also, what kind of ID checks are we using for the emperor? Patrons, check your messages and send us your address! We have stickers to mail out!

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music (and the stickers design!).

Ancillary Justice: Part One

Today's warmup is an advice column and Dan needs help with his dance strategy (14:05 to skip). We're putting together a plan to befriend AIs, but only the cool, hip ones. Folks, make sure your children's songs rhyme or it doesn't count!

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.
