This week Ryan and Nate talk about vacations and trips and rocks. Specifically in that order. Nate tried to keep his children up later than the Tokyo government would allow and Ryan took a flight with a seat partner who was all elbows. After that, the two recall stories about rocks for all the geology nerds out there. Finally, the two discuss a beautiful, horrible world and the power of narrative in their discussion of The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin.
