About Us

Leigh Crenshaw-Player and Mr. Intrigue have decided to combine their respective knowledge bases of mysticism and science to makes sense of the senseless or at the very least find ways to take care of ourselves while we fight for a more equitable world. Our weekly nerdy rants explore politics, sexuality, class, race, superheroes and so much more as we search for truth. We welcome you to join us on our journey to understand what community and personal responsibility look like at the end of the world.

ELeigh and Mr. Intrigue review episodes 4-6 of Random Act of Flyness. It turns out that Mr. Intrigue has a massive brain crush on the writers of RAOF - namely Terence Nance.

Our minds were blown and yours will be too. CW at 41:00 - 52:30 we discuss episode 4, which is about sexual assault.
