Things in Sci-Fi That Bug Us
Ep. 49Mar. 271h 8m 2s

Rob and Joe dive deep into the little things that bug them the most in the Sci-fi genre, and, of course, they also talk about bees. A story or two about whales learning how to avoid whaling ships and gorillas being taught to fear death make for a well-rounded episode, if they do say so themselves.
