Recorded June 5, 2022

This week, Nate and Ryan talk about how they consume media and the efforts they take to not mindlessly munch media. Ryan details what it means to work together and collaborate as instructed by a magical talking book from the game, It Takes Two. After that, they try yet another odd Calpis and Orange Chocolate Kit Kats before talking about some of their most memorable first impressions of new places. Finally they talk about the weight of experiences, decisiveness of characters, and trying to sleep through screaming slugs in their discussion of the main media, To Be Taught If Fortunate by Becky Chambers.
