Red Seas Under Red Skies: Part Three

Something fishy is going on in the Parlor Passage. Also Luke and Dan still don't get the plan. Me thinks someone needs to give these pirates some pointers. Teach em about parley.

Red Seas Under Red Skies: Part Two

We know you've all wanted a fortune cookie warmup so here you go (8:20 to skip). You may think we are too critical of the pirate plan in this book, but you are wrong because WHAT IS THIS PLAN?? However, don't worry because Luke and Dan are still solving problems including Locke's cat issues. Finally, is there anyone that hasn't been poisoned in this scheme?

Red Seas Under Red Skies: Part One

Dan starts with a hype moment and Luke calls out Locke's magic skills. Break out your IRL GameSharks because we have found a cheat code. Also, get yourself that government contract money.

The Lies of Locke Lamora: Part Three

Luke and Dan debate the merits of skipping leg day (spoilers: don't.) But feel free to skip to 6:25 to hear fan favorites like, "Why are we giving sick people wine not water?" and "Bondsmages are cheating, right?". What ridiculous animal combinations would you create for the Duke's feast? Tweet your suggestions to @DCitaBC with #frankenfeast. Special thanks to VOLO for intro and outro music.

The Lies of Locke Lamora: Part Two

No intro segment for this episode, we start already warmed up to cover the first 10 chapters of the Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. Dan spends a while raving about how good this book is and Luke calls out the Grey King for cheating. If you're worried that the first half is too serious, don't worry we get real deep into the unimportant details towards the end.

The Lies of Locke Lamora: Part One

Tune in to this episode to hear Dan's very controversial opinions on lobotomy, but first listen to Luke give some advice on healthy living. Oh and in case you're not sure what the final conflict will be we've got you covered with some pretty solid predictions.
