If you've been apartment shopping in your life then boy do we have a #relatable rant for you (6:19). Long time listeners will not be surprised or disappointed when we talk about the pets of this world for way too long. Also Luke takes a brave stand to point out when we as readers are being manipulated. Wake up sheeple!

The Fifth Season: Part One

You might be wondering, "Luke and Dan, how are you gonna make a discussion about this horrifyingly dark book funny?" We were wondering the same thing. So we start with a little catharsis, move to a few predictions, and by the end I think we stumble into a few slivers of comedic light among the darkness of systematic dehumanization. Also the little girl's name is Damaya not Dayama and we know that...now. Special thanks to VOLO for the intro/outro music.
