Episode 203: Spoilers: A Star Wars Story

This episode contains: Steven has a terrible voice and Devon has terrible teeth. Devon talks all about his deep mouth cleaning, which is kinda gross and kinda enthralling. We also agree that nobody actually flosses.

Power to the People: NASA created a mini fission reactor! How cool is that? It’s roughly the size of a refrigerator and generates 4 kilowatts of power. The reactor runs on uranium-235 and is has very low radioactive emissions. If scaled up properly, it can be used to power bases on the moon or even Mars.


Evolutionarily Speaking: Is there a connection between autism and art when it comes to our prehistoric ancestors? Some researchers believe so. The detail focus for our ancestors is evident in their artwork and current humans who are on the autistic spectrum can also have high detail focus. We can’t confirm there is a connection, there are too many gaps in our knowledge.


#SaveTheExpanse: The Expanse has been cancelled by the SyFy channel. We are super bummed, but we haven’t been watching, so we’re to blame. We really want a digital distributor to pick up the show, so we can watch it when we want to. In lieu of the show, there’s always the books, I guess.

Solo Spoilers: The entire plot of Solo: A Star Wars Story has been leaked! Steven found it online and restrained himself. When he tells Devon about it, he cannot restrain himself. Minor spoilers for the first 10-20 min of the Solo movie. We also talk about the potential of an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie, and we’re totally cool with that.

Video Games: Steven has been playing Star Wars Battlefront 2 and the Destiny 2 expansion Warmind. Listen in to find his mini reviews and reactions.

Asgardia: We complete this episode with the ceremonial reading of the Asgardian Constitution.
