Episode 26: Mad Ship Chapters Prologue - Ch 5

March 27th, 2020

Here's an extra long episode for you just in time for extended quarantine. We're still arguing about serpents, and cannibal boats and whether or not Reyn Khuprus is a creep or not. Now featuring all the rambling stuff we usually cut out (want to learn about piracy?). Because we're on lock down and listening to other human voices makes us feel alive.
