May we offer you a few cosmic-ray-saturated olives, Gentle Listener? Or perhaps some radioactive matzah bread? Who knows what ethnically/religiously superpowered hijinks will ensue when chosen hosts Wesley Johnson, Jarret Green, Joel Meyerson, Randall Smith, and Tom Johnson take it way past mashugana.
In this episode:
Joel a biochemist, and an electron microscopist specialising in the molecular structure of viruses. Also able to reverse the bat-polarity and track cloaked starships. Joel a Tejas native, now in Maryland. More Five Guys appreciation. Tom a complete apostate for his silly stance on FFVII. Dragonslayer. Joel finds a novel way to play Uncharted with his significant other. Randall changes his mind about Prince of Persia, and changes Jarret's mind by spoiling the ending. Joel asks about getting back into fighting games. The 2009 Bulwer-Lytton fiction awards, read aloud severally. Jewish Super Heroes considered and admired, more or less. Bible man schlock found amusing. More irritation at the Oak Park Festival Theatre. Game anticipations for 2009. Long Island [re/se]ceding, a fact which does not disturb young Tom Johnson in the slightest. D&D campaign preparing; Wes names his character to connote insecurity.
• 2009 Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest
• Jewish Hero Corps
• Bible Man
