In this episode, Amy DuBoff joins the team and we talk about memory, how we're recording more of our lives, and whether or not we'll some day be able to quite literally live in the past.

In this episode, Jenny, Jen, and Michael talk about the world of Tyre, and its many natural wonders in celebration of the 2nd book in the Building New Canaan series's release.
We also wander off into speculation over what other things the FGT may have made in their work across the stars.
We talk about about Rika, and then dive into how interstellar commerce would work both before, and after the advent of FTL.

Also of note, the Anthology that the Rika short will be in is run by JR Hadley, not Jeff Haskell, and it is called Backblast. It's planned release date is December 1st 2018.
