Well, it's what's on the tin. We go spelunking to find a deeper meaning in a regular ol' story set in space. As usual, this means a visit to Richard's reading corner and an exploration of the non-existent "episode two" of this X-1 episode.

Ryan gave it a 5.5

Richard gave it a begrudging 4.02 (4...he really gives it a 4)

We finally cover an episode we keep talking about and proceed to not talk much about the otr X-1 episode "Cold Equations." A rambling discussion about ethics and science fiction story telling, adult stories and a lot of gushing. Can we make a good episode out of a good episode, listen and find out.

10s all around.

What if Wheaton's Law was enforced by a deadly disease? We explore that idea discussing the X-1 episode "Courtesy" by Clifford Simak. Topics range from plot convenient deaths, an entire culture overreacting as one, and perhaps one of the biggest jerk characters we've had so far. Plus Richard makes the case for Clifford Simak.

Ryan gave it a 6.5

Richard gave it a 7.5

This week we talk about the otr X-1 episode "Almost Human," gangsters and robots, the author of Psycho, Pinocchio and Frankenstein and what makes a good robot story, we invite our listeners to speculate on how different directors would approach the story, and halfway through demanding an Iron Giant musical we halfass our way through an Almost Human musical. All in one episode! We're back, baby!

We both gave it a 4.

So, every once in a while there are five Wednesdays in a month, and we're a small podcast that can only afford storage for four, especially when we get chatty. But we don't want to leave you hanging for the week, so here are some outtakes as Ryan tries his best to get the hosts talking to adjust their levels.

Subjects include the legitimacy of probiotics, Richard's culinary inventions and novel health product, some awful covers of various songs, and the science of butt wiping. You're warned...We'll be back in full force next week with the killer robot tale, "Almost Human."

Google would not reveal the Iron Man or Elmer Fudd comedian, so if you know, let us know!
