Nice Dragons Finish Last: Part Two

Very long intro today, we're learning all about RenFest and why Dan can't wait to go back (13:10 to skip). As we finish the book we're covering some big topics like Dragon Capitalism and beauty standards for beings with multiple forms. I know, very relatable and topical. We're also learning the benefits of a modern messenger pigeon.

For next week, start reading Foundation by Isaac Asimov!

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

Nice Dragons Finish Last: Part One

The boys give a sci-fi/fantasy news update and they are hyped. Skip to 9:05 if you have already heard of the new Foundation TV series. Big tone shift from Malazan Book of the Summer here and Luke and Dan love it. Luke gives simultaneously great and terrible advice about dragon snacks and Dan is team Bethesda (the dragon obviously). Send us your meanest dragon tweets and finish the book for next week!
