Episode 16: "Khup Khun Car‪"‬ Poet in Bangkok

    • Arts

In Episode 16, Colin Cheney is missing. He was last seen venturing to Puerto Rico in search of a major discovery at the Arecibo Observatory. Meanwhile, fearing his reoccurring Martian Aphasia might lead to his arrest, Donald Quist flees the United States and returns to Bangkok. From Thailand, Donald reflects on America's declaration of war with Mars and the executive order to detain any perceived followers of former Mars colonist, Captain Raymond Shepard. Donald discusses the growing sense of anxiety across the globe as uncertainty about alien invaders continues to aid the rise of demagogues. Sorting through abandoned audio from his last visit with Colin, Donald shares a recording of the pair riding through Boston, Massachusetts, on their way to meet a new sponsor for the podcast. Reminiscing on their work together, Donald ponders Colin's vanishing and if the podcast might be of greater significance than either of them could have imagined.
