Kathie drops by to talk about Octavia E. Butler’s harrowing post-collapse books ‘Parable of the Sower’ and ‘Parable of the Talents’. Thanks to Matthew Fava for giving us these cheery reads.
We’ve got some of the latest tech news here. Well, at least the good bits, and seeing as it’s the end of July and there basically isn’t any tech news, we actually didn’t do too bad.
Despite Skype’s best attempts to thwart the conversation, Rick, Jenn, Mark, and Scott discuss the new Ant-Man movie.
Can you guess which film takes the number one spot? Why would you? Just listen to the show.
A big thank you goes to Mike for editing the show.

This time we catch up on cinema goings and a found footage movie that Boz suggested to Goggs.

We also finally announce our Town that Dreaded sundown competition in a fairly unique way.
Admist a few technical gremlins and the appearance of Jazmin the Podcast Interrupting Cat™, Emma and Mike tell the long, strange tale of Tom Baker’s quest to make a Doctor Who spin-off movie.
All hands are on deck, plus some extra special guests, as we bid farewell to the Starbase.
