  • Best podcast ever? We were not sober enough to tell - this is long enough to be a two-parter, but screw it, we're too lazy to edit this thing into two monsters, enjoy

  • It’s a long journey, but Shahin finally was able to open his bottle of wine and begin the podcast

  • Is the City of Light evil?

  • We discuss shock and Stanford prison experiments

  • Is Luna naive or a hypocrite?

  • Jen “could be” a good person

  • Is Luna Floudonkru?

  • Would Clarke let Bellamy die or give up the pass code if the situation arose?

  • Do we love the Abby/Clarke scenes? Of course we do.

  • Redemption arcs - Shahin doesn’t believe in them

  • Shahin reveals he’s writing fanfic and WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO PROCESS THIS INFORMATION
