Parable of the Sower: Part Two

Dan has learned a key aspect of Elden Ring since the Patreon episode (7:05 to skip). Luke and Dan address a controversy right off the bat and that is how you know they are professionals. We get a peek behind the podcasting curtain and Luke shares his expert water treatment takes. Finally, based on our subreddit poll apparently everybody knows about the second law of thermodynamics so Dan is a big dumb idiot. Orconomics by Zachary Pike next week!

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

Parable of the Sower: Part One

We are happy to be back with some good podcast news and a long warmup. Small dog owners beware, you're getting called out (13:45 to skip). Speaking of dogs, we may have found the right messaging for climate change deniers and dogs are key. We're sensing some west coast bias here and Dan is calling BS on this fire drug. Also this book so far is very dark, if you're not up for that right now feel free to skip!
