Fire the Canon

In this episode, we cover the final section of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, as translated by Simon Aritage.  He’s back!  And by “he,” we mean both Sir Gawain and special guest Jacob, from the Underrated/Overhated podcast, so maybe we should have just said “they.”  Turns out they’re both from the same neck of the woods. Sir Gawain finally comes face to face with his nemesis once more.  Jackie has a “horrible” allergy voice.  Rachel is accused of lacking charisma.  Theo relates to a character.  Topics include: Theo’s English accent, voluminous underwear, canals in Venice and Birmingham, the worst man in the world, time travel, the Young Writers Conference, rocks vs. nature, Danish axes, Samwise Gamgee, pole vaulting, himbology, locker room talk, the Fireys, and Adam Sandler.
