TMR 8.08: CoDex 1962 (Pages 303-343)
This week, Tobias Carroll joined Chad and Brian to talk about werewolves, puns that don’t exactly work in translation, evil baseball card shop owners, weird Masonic rituals, Party Down South, and Fred Durst and John Travolta’s The Fanatic. They also have a lot of praise for Sjón and the wild, fun nature of the second volume in CoDex 1962, and set up volume three: “I’m a Sleeping Door: A Science-Fiction Story.”
The next episode will focus on the first eight chapters of this third volume (pages 345-406). The complete schedule can be found here.
