This week, we talk with Deanna Fugett (not to be confused with Deanna Troi). We get right into it with a discussion about oddly named characters, and where some of these names come from (don't ask...)

Next, because this is a speculative fiction show, we talk at length about Little House on the Prairie (Of course...) Liberty wasn't around this week to steer us back on track... (because she spontaneously combusted... well, that's our story, anyway...)

We eventually got back on track (kind of...), and learned that Josh loves depressing endings (Aaron can't stand them...)

Who's Deanna's favorite super hero? Is it Green Arrow? Super Grover? You'll have to listen to find out.

 

As always, check out LasersDragonsAndKeyboards.com for full show notes and links to things we discussed!
