In This Episode!
We are playing catch-up on a couple of our favorite assignments from past episodes: finishing up Cowboy Bebop and reading Book 2 in the Locke and Key series! Listen as Matt and Chris get nostalgic while discussing their favorite (and by favorite they mean most hated) alternarock from the late 90s, whether or not 10 Cloverfield Lane was really worth it, and Matt explain to Chris the specifics of Locke and Key that he should’ve already understood.
Listen up again, space cowboys...

Notes, Thanks, Apologies, Etc.!
Chris wants to apologize for sounding like a complete and utter idiot when discussing Locke and Key - he totally missed some major revelations. But, he’s thankful that Matt was there to explain it all! He’s an excellent nerd sensei.
We are delving deep into Marvel Comics lore via Alex Ross! We are reading two mini-series inspired and/or drawn and painted by Alex Ross: Marvels and Earth-X. We go into the past and into (yet another) dark Marvel future. EXCELSIOR!

Chris is on Twitter and Instagram — he also runs a blog about creativity, entrepreneurship, reading, writing, self-creation, secularism, spirituality, Stoicism, and whatever else interests him called Inter alia — but since it’s a Tumblr, he mainly just reblogs. Come say hi!
