Recorded July 1, 2021

Summertime in COVID-times is exactly as exiting as that sounds. Ryan talks about the minimal outside activities he was willing to do post-vaccination and Nate grieves over the nature of the rainy season in Japan. Thinking back, they reminisce on some of their favorite hiking journeys- both the successes and those that were... less so. For the snack corner, they brought forward a grape yogurt Fanta and raspberry Kit-Kats. Finally, for the main media, they talk about subverting expectations, a life of piracy, well-developed detail work, and the comic work of fratricidal royalty in the movie Stardust.
