Happy New Year! Foot is away this week, having sequestered himself in a cabin for New Years, so here is the very first episode of We Love Dick! This episode was recorded in September as a test run for the podcast. The story under discussion was "A Terran Odyssey," first published in 1963, then developed into Dr. Bloodmoney, or How We Got Along After the Bomb, which was published in 1965.
This week: straight read VS alt read, Coke VS Pepsi, hallucinations VS schizophrenia, The Wire, Fight Club, and The Story So Far.
