On this week's SPECIAL FRIDAY release, we learn all about many things that we want to learn about, I am sure. Zac's power went out the next day, it is very sad for him. What is the worth of a life? Unknowable. What is the worth of a life without meaning? Nothing. If your death can give meaning to others, do you not feel a responsibility to give up your "nothing" for another's "something?" If a proud knight takes up a blade of divinity only to forsake those they mean to protect, should they not fall on it? What is something worth if it cannot function as it intends?  May your blood nourish the earth that cradled you. The sword can only "give" in this way. Perhaps another can meet the measure of their own charge. Or perhaps not. [Dark-Souls-NPC-Laugh.ogg]

Even if Sam's not on the podcast you legally cannot force me to write a description. What are you going to do? Not listen because there's no description? No one looks at these. Sometimes they're helpful for searching through though, so I'll write the words "Lina", "Ember", "WLD", and "The Talking Heads" just to throw a curveball in there.
