Beards, Books, and Bourbon Podcast

"You Savage Viking Raider": Sea of Tranquility & Digits Bourbon

Beards, Books, and Bourbon Podcast

Stephen and Mark take a romp through time and space, through relationships lost and found, through paradoxes and moral dilemmas.  Cosmic anamolies and personal inevitabilities abound in the wonderfully haunting and lyrical story by Emily St. John Mandel.  "Sea of Tranquility" is anything but, and we'll need the help of none other than Scottie Pippen of the Chicago Bulls (or at least his bourbon) to get us through it all.
