    Recorded August 21, 2022
    This week, Ryan makes excuses for his “not-quite-so-productive-as-I-meant-it-to-be” summer (and Nate does the same). Also, Nate was able to make it to Disney (surprise, surprise). Afterwards, Ryan talks about the adorable critters wearing hats in Kena: Bridge of Spirits. Then, Nate and Ryan talk about various rewards they received from their work over the years, both tangible and not so much. Finally, for the main media this week, the two address the art of forgetting, break vs. break, non-personhood, and the best intentioned of “self-help gurus” in their discussion of the TV show Severance.
