Robot-Kraken Episode 039 – The Niander Meander [January 2018]

It’s been a bit, but the Robot-Kraken Podcast is back, featuring Thom and guest-host Blake ‘B-Money’ Simmons, waxing elaborate about Blade Runner 2049, more Blade Runner 2049, also Blade Runner 2049. We also talk about Spider-Man: Homecoming, and various entertainment news items from the close of 2017. This compilation features recordings from October and November 2017 and a bit from December. That’s how it is when sailing the seas of sweet-as…

 

Do you want to hear HOURS of blather about Blade Runner 2049? Me too… and I was THERE.

 

Do you enjoy the in’s and outs of Peter Parker’s ways and means? Right there with you!

 

And perhaps most importantly, do you thrill at seeing my reflection in Blake’s bottle of Blade Runner Special Edition Johnnie Walker Black, via videoconference? Well… you should.

Speaking of, there are two Sucking the Monkey segments in this episode:

First session:

  • Blake: Gatorade, due to deathly ill situation
  • Thom: The Niander Meander* [ Rum and Coke served in a Blade Runner glass]

Second session:

  • Blake: Rose
  • Thom: The Melonificent [ Korean Melon Soda + Amsterdam Gin] which Blake insists is the Heinous Anus

Similarly, two Planned Plundering segments:
