Nate and Ryan are back from the Christmas break and brought stories from their trips and adventures. Nate also reminisces about some of the very thoughtful gifts he has given to his wife in the past. Ryan brings up his desire for this year to be a year of progress and Nate plans to have a year of the same. After commiserating about the lack of a modular Mac in their lives, they partook in a Double-thickness Strawberry flavored Calpis. For the Media this week they talk about a classic that Ryan somehow missed in his childhood, the Iron Giant, during which they discussed timing, being who you choose to be and why Iron Giants dream of electric sheep.
