  1. Great episode 🙂 Reminded me of the Attack of the Pod People… tapping into the same frantic need to escape, fight or flight, feelings. Look forward to next week!

  2. I was about to show myself too. But after this hanging example… Well, maybe it’s not a bad idea that of the invasion from the outer space. The alien even take the trouble to disguise themselves like humans. What else can we ask for? P. K. Dick himself was one of the few awake humans of modern times… Thanks Cthulhu he wasn’t hanged.

  3. I’m glad you guys enjoyed the story. I thought the narration was a particularly strong one, and I’m glad to report that we just gave Dave another story. 🙂
