Gobbledygeek: Episode 171 – S: Part 2 – Sensible Vultures

Shifting identities. Confessions of love. Chases in the dark. Names. Lots of names. These things and more can be found in chapters 4-6 of J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst’s S., here discussed by your learned and astute co-readers. The Debatable Podcast‘s Greg Sahadachny joins Paul and AJ for the second week of the Gobbledy-Book Club, talking about the unique way he started reading the book, whether Eric and Jen’s marginalia or Ship of Theseus itself is more captivating, and what a “second” is. If the boys scratched the surface last week, this time they plunge headfirst into the dark, mysterious world of S. Come on in, the water’s fine.
