EPISODE 3: ENDER’S GAME

In episode three of our podcast we turn our attention to the 1984 book Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card and the resulting film adaptation from 2013. Mike and Brent have fun saying “buggers” a lot, we talk about Karen Gillan’s hair and why Mike would like her to pretend that he’s Pee Wee Herman, Brent wins Mike’s con swag and we accurately re-create the Star Trek fight music. Our first listener feedback! Waiting for that second listener…
