22: A Fistful of Followup

Our followup list got long, so we decided to do our first all-followup episode. Which turned into a small amount of followup surrounded by conversation ranging from game shows to board games, Lord of the Rings to Destiny 2, and weapons of mass destruction to… sports?

There’s also a little bit of spoiler-free trailer talk on Pacific Rim: Uprising, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and Justice League.


This episode is brought to you by Audible. Visit audibletrial.com/betterworlds to choose one free audiobook out of an available fifteen thousand dozen. If you’re going to listen to a Steve Jobs biography, make it Becoming Steve Jobs, not the Walter Isaacson one.
