Ricky and Dirk pull a sci-fi hat trick by forcing a sleepy Dave listen to them geek out about John Scalzi’s Starship-Troopers-adjacent novel, Old Man’s War. Ricky sings a Gregorian battle hymn. Dirk gives us all a lesson on the properties of time-space. Dave. Has. His. Mind. BLOWN. (And loves it.)
Friend of the podcast, Steve, joins us as Dave takes over and tries to explain to Dirk and Ricky how to be a man. He uses the appropriate film, Rambo: First Blood, as a medium to get across such points as: Which directions should stabbing flow in? How much oil should you use when showing off ripped pecs? And how do you cook ravioli THE RIGHT WAY?
This was probably a huge mistake.
A SNEAK PEEK TREAT!
Ricky and Dirk try to explain the science-fiction epic, Dune, to Dave. Dave asks a lot of questions about curry. There is also a Kevin Bacon reference.
NOTICE: This is our first PILOT episode. The audio quality is just as dirty as our mouths, so, uh, sorry? Have a listen to see if you like the cut of our jib. But please don’t judge us on the quality. We promise better. Soon. Like. Real soon.
