EPISODE XL: GOD DAMN

*Editors Note: Podcast streaming had been down for a few days, but is now BACK UP. Enjoy.*

This week, nothing really happens. Just a regular episode of the podcast. No big deal. If you like this podcast, then you’ll like this episode, if you don’t then something is wrong with your brain. Actually, that was mean. I’m sure your brain is fine. Perhaps you like lighter fare, like the Little Mermaid. And that’s fine. The adventures of Arial, and her little Crab friend, and their battle against the evil Ursula, is an animated classic, though I do find her conversion from mermaid to actual legged person a little disturbing. I mean, how does she know how to walk? And why does that prince want to have sex with a fish so badly? Eerie.

Episode XXXVI: One More For The Pile

This this episode, the entire world comes to an end. All the events and human achievements the world has ever known, along with all living life on the planet, is blinked out of existence in an instant, with absolutely no warning. The entire planet explodes in a giant fireball, throwing the orbit of all celestial masses in our part of the solar system into disarray. Only tiny bits of rock remain to fill our former seat in the vast emptiness of space.

The Fat Robot gang doesn’t really talk about it though. It’s pretty much business as usual around there. But really, when the world ends, do you want to run around screaming in the street like some kind of jackass, or go our with a little style. If screaming isn’t really your thing, then give a listen to this episode of FAT ROBOT RADIO.
