Podcast 33: High Five

Well we bring to a close the best season of TNG so far. It is going to be pretty difficult to beat this one. We gush on and on about the episode The Inner Light, but over all this was a fun podcast for Joey and I to record. We also started a new tradition for the beginning of the podcast: high five. Let's see how long it sticks around for. Due to our secret location we had no guests. This podcast covers episodes 25-26 of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 5.

Various topics discussed in this podcast include:
    I Fight Dragons
    JC Hutchins 7th Son Novel
    What helps you think?
    Should you announce impending doom
    New vocabulary word: Voorwerp
    Is Research & Development really gone?
    What is reality?
    Do you believe in fate?
    The first rule of time travel: Blend in
    Peter shames Joey on the subject of tipping
