The Obelisk Gate: Part Two

Dan's bringing us back to our roots with a super-specific rant about mundane life events (10:20 to skip). We finished the book for this episode so make sure you've read the whole thing before starting. Ok, now you can dive in and discuss with us who is allowed to initiate the cannibalism and who has to sit out that conversation.

Next week we're starting The Lost War by Justin Lee Anderson!

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

The Obelisk Gate: Part One

Luke and Dan are not very excited about one of these characters coming back, can you guess which one it is? Finally we get a name for a new segment on the show; introducing Creative Solutions with Luke and Dan. Luke also reigns in Dan before he tries to claim that all plants should have teeth (tbh they should tho). In a twist we are going to finish the book next week, so get reading!
