After a quick recap of the sad events of this past week, Evan and Carissa get to talking about robots. We cover the adorable NAO, the nightmarishly trippy Deep Dream, Asimov's Three Laws, sex bots, and much much more.  Basically, it's everything you will need to know about the future of robotics. You're welcome!

We are joined by another very special guest this week! Zach - formerly known as 'Z' - comes on to examine the Wizard's Rules: the set of concepts used in Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series. One by one, he walks us through the eleven guidelines given in this NYT bestselling fantasy series, and we discuss their uses within the story, in the real world, and as the primers on Objectivism they were intended to be. Along the way we throw in some literary criticism, a healthy dash of ethical analysis, and a few personal anecdotes. There are a couple mild spoilers for the series, but (we hope) nothing that would prevent possible enjoyment for any new readers.

Sincere thanks to Zach for coming on to get bookish with us!

This week we bring on very special guest Jason from our brother podcast The Bearded Ones to talk about the long-standing classic, Saturday Night Live. We cover cast changes, ads and shorts, what worked, what bombed, our favorite and least favorite things about it, and basically everything that has given this American standard its pride of place in pop culture.

We don't do it often, but to kick off the new year we wanted to just kind of talk to each other about 'stuff'.  Carissa announces her resolution and waxes poetic about the touching effect of Bob Ross on Twitch chatters, while Evan reflects on Red Dead Redemption and the things we love despite all contrary public opinion.  Hollywood gets a nice reaming for its neoconservative values and alien view of the real world.  Just for the hell of it, we talk limericks and anti-limericks, and would like to invite our beloved listeners to send us their favorite dirty limericks.
