Molly Allis is our guest this week! Los Angeles in tha house!
Ursula K. Le Guin is our challenge this week.
We talk about style and the awesome power of Pee Wee's Playhouse, black holes and sneaker style. We also talked about Jiro Dreams of Sushi, which Rob has not yet seen.
Rob read Le Guin's "Lathe of Heaven" and got a janky string drawing machine built. Molly read "Tales from Earthsea" and wrote an amazing song! Taylor also read "Lathe of Heaven" and got heaven on the lathe!
