A Fire Upon the Deep: Part Three

Remember The Colony show from 2009? Well Dan does...Ya boys develop a theory live in episode. We also get into some dubious astrophysics, but who's going to call us out for it? Seriously someone should probably get @ us (@DCitaBC). Special thanks to VOLO for the intro/outro music.

A Fire Upon the Deep Vernor Vinge

A Fire Upon the Deep: Part Two

No warm-up this time, just those clean, 100% pure, pristine book nuggets. Speaking of dank nugs, this week we once again return to talking about space dogs smoking that sticky icky. Dan posts up a couple of deep three pointer theories and for no reason whatsoever Luke brings Cuba into this mess.

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

A Fire Upon the Deep: Part One

Luke and Dan rile each other up over audiobooks, then start the first episode on the Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge. Both of us spend a good amount of time discussing the intricacies of the dog pack society of the Tines (dog packs using bows and arrows, whaaat?), then get really excited about a character's name.

It's Pham... his name is Pham.

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.
