Sword of Kaigen: Part Three

To get warmed up today Dan goes on a rollercoaster of emotions with his perspective on gift cards (skip to 8:45 for book discussion). As we finish up the Sword of Kaigen we're again diving deep into the macroeconomics and incentives of the communities in a book. If you've got a moment please spare a prayer for THE WIND CHILD, she's gonna have it rough.

Stay tuned to our social media channels to get access to our poems for next week which we will release on Tuesday.

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

Sword of Kaigen: Part Two

Can you guess who Luke and Dan are going to be dunking on for most of this episode? Probably because he is an absolute monster. The boys speculate about the amazing non-combat uses of water magic, specifically the cuisine. Be warned, there is a little bit of toilet humor in this episode but I promise it is totally warranted.

Sword of Kaigen: Part One

Dan doesn't understand the concept of a warm up so don't skip the intro on this one . Luke has a fool proof method of winning one of these duels and it's all about climate control folks. Dan asks the age old question; why are we using swords? And yes we do have an answer... sort of.
