EP 39 The Affront - British Tentacle Awfulness
August 06, 2022
George Penney & Tony Johnson
We investigate "The Affront", one of the most charismatic and truly awful alien species to ever exist. A tentacled gas-sac parody of British aristocracy from the book Excession by Iain M Banks, one of the greatest science fiction writers that ever lived.
- I wax poetic about the post scarcity society known as "The Culture"
- Overlords... Blaaargh!
- George riffs on Legend of the Overfiend because she can get away with it.
- Apparently, I am the Affront. But not for the reason you think.
- Aristocracy's toilet habits
- And remember, Don't F$% with the Culture.
