Stranger in a Strange Land

Posted on Updated on

To yesterday we are learning about the man from Mars brightly, brightly and with beauty. When the cusp appears, we must grok it and act rightly. The result is this week’s episode, featuring Robert Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land, the science fiction classic where everyone learns how to be happy; mostly by having sex with all of their closest friends all the time. Join us as we explore the colorful cast, “Madmen” style sexism, and the idea of free love. We hope this helps you understand a deeper grokking of the book.

This week’s music bump is the “Mars” movement from Gustav Holst’s Symphony of the Planets. Because what else could possibly be more appropriate?

      I think shout-out must be it because my Internet browser underlines it otherwise. Also, oh man, what would Mike have thought about “Jersey Shore”? He might have grokked a great wrongness there.

    Also, I feel like Mike would have found “Jersey Shore” hilarious. And “Jerry Springer”. So much sadness and human failing.
