Show Notes

In Episode Five, “Recklessly and Perfectly Alive,” we get to explore a forest at long, long last. The crew attempt to learn James’s favorite sport, with minimal success. Conflicts are resolved, new surprises are encountered, and quite a lot of hairs are cut. This one’s sweet! 

Content Notes: very few this time! As usual a few people swear.
Alcohol consumption: [40:19 - 41:10] pours, takes a sip, sings about whiskey
