Episode 004, Part 1 – Watership Down
So you might be wondering why we’ve split this podcast into two parts. Is it something about the number 4 (as in 004, as in the episode number) that levels extra importance to its proceedings? Is it your damn lucky number or something? Thinking that’s the case? That you’re special? That you’re somehow linked to us through cosmic means? Well, I’m here to tell you, “4” is the first cursed number my friend. That’s right, cursed. As in the first number in this series: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42. Bad luck city. And just like Hugo Reyes, whose life was badgered by these malignant digits and whose path brought him to the Australian outback in search of answers, you’ve come here with hope and will receive nothing but punishment. Because, let’s face it, you deserve it.
Where was I? Right, episode 4. So, we didn’t hit record during the second half. That’s really it. You can come back next week for the exciting conclusion (as well as the trivia answer) if you want. I suggest you do. But the idea here is, we’re pretty much just a minivan full of idiots dumber than a sack full of cats. With the attention span of a warren of horny rabbits.
Right, rabbits! That’s the real point. Bring on the bunnies of Watership Down, the movie that’s not, I’ve come to find, about submarines.
