First Man is probably a good movie that we really didn’t have a good time with.

We’re all over the place on this episode. It’s just like old times. It’s like a time loop! You could say we wander to and far, but only if you’re a person who uses strange, nonstandard phrases instead of standard ones.

I was way on in my reckoning of episodes. I really thought we were in the mid-40s, but no. We’re just barely over the hill as a podcast. Still, episode 50 is in sight and that’s loaded with significance thanks to our base 10 numbering system and nothing else.
