Here’s Looking at you, Kid:  World’s first spherical artificial eye has 3D retina. An electrochemical eye has been developed and we couldn’t be more over the moon.

Science Fiction: Steven does a mini review of Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal. Ben explains Infinity Train and it’s core concepts. We do a quick dive into the Playstation 5 news and The Last of Us Part 2. We do a final (we promise) talk about The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. Ben has been reading Milk Run from Nathan Lowell and Steven attempts to explain the behemoth that the board game Gloomhaven is.
