Ep. 10: Kurt Vonnegut’s Animorphs

We are what animals we pretend to be (for more than two hours), so we must be careful about what animals we pretend to be.We made it to episode 10! It’s time for a celebration! Not as big as the celebration we’ll have for episode 65, when we surpass the number of volumes in K.A. Applegate’s magnum opus – that party is going to be a rager – but a celebration nonetheless. Come listen to us celebrate in the five episode freecast, or hop on over to Patreon and listen to the whole thing.

  1. Spaten Optimator Doppelbock: In Dissecting Our Fun, Spence and Caleb praise Brewin’ USA for its commitment to a theme.
  2. Kasteel Cuvee du Chateau Belgian Ale: Binge Binger has us rating superhero shows on Netflix. We resist talking about the Arrow-verse for nearly three minutes!
  3. Brassrie Dieu du Ciel! Rigor Mortis: In Ask Mixed Six, the gang lays down the gauntlet of what a quality bar should do to serve us.
  4. Ommegang Three Philosophers: In This Was a Mistake, Spencer takes leave of his senses regarding the recent travesty of Superman films, and Caleb becomes reactionary.
  5. Shiner Ruby Redbird: In Getting Lit(erature), we discuss whether or not Kurt Vonnegut was a sci-fi writer and gush about our shared favorite author.And on the Patreon…
  6. Mother’s English Tea Pale Ale: Finally Drunk Enough, we wonder what would have been by discussing life paths not taken.
