Time and tide wait for no one. And so, another year has passed. As is their tradition, Nate and Ryan look back on everything that has happened in the past year and remember their favorite things about it. Then, turning their eyes from their favorite things of the past year, the two discuss a fantastic book with a slightly more troubled world. Picking up from where The Fifth Season left off, Nate and Ryan discuss carnivorous insects, fraught mother-daughter relationships, and long distance murder in N. K. Jemisin’s The Obelisk Gate.
