Episode 35: 'Interstellar'

Welcome back, you lovable people! Late episode this week, but still a goodey; the J's talk about dust, fate, Michael Caine, and revisionist textbook histories in their review of film #49218, 'Interstellar'!

But that's not all. The boys also talk about doing GTD and dream-planning (without actually doing anything, mind you). Joel solves all puture and frast problems with a little divination, and opens up all sorts of worm cans. Jon pontificates on the god-like power of film-cutting and SHREDS ALL THE PAPER. And what would the podcast be without a leaf blower in the background? Leaf blowers. Why do they exist?

It's episode thirty-five of 'Talk and Trivia, With J&J'! Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
