Episode 1 - Rusty Aliens & Papal Bananas

In this inaugural episode, Kyle and Susi talk about video games, politics, aliens, the Vatican, saints, Iceland, and bananas. One of us also pounds the table a lot.

Here is that YouTube video Susi mentioned: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GzgqO3CvcA

And here's that XKCD comic Kyle mentioned: https://www.xkcd.com/1122/

Corrections:

  • The presidential residence in Iceland is white, not blue (the Blue House is in South Korea) and is named Bessastaðir.
  • Bessastaðir was built on land that had formerly served as a farm and school, not prison. Most notably, the land once belonged to Snorri Sturluson.
  • Kyle and Susi definitely CANNOT do math--you can only buy about 21 AAA games for $1,300.
