This week, Nate and Ryan are joined by a very special guest, Dan Moren the author of the Galactic Cold War series. Inviting him in to the usual routine, they talk about their current gaming trends, and their favorite espionage and heist scenes from books, television and movies. As a truly Japanese experience, the three of them eat Hi-Chew and follow it with a Calpis chaser. For the main media of the week, seeing as they had the author himself, the three talk about Dan Moren's most recent book, The Aleph Extraction. Having cornered the author, Nate and Ryan used this opportunity to talk to Dan about his early influences, writing process, character development, world building, and how every space luxury yacht clearly has a closet full of capes.
