Get your chlorophyll on as we enter a vine-choked version of the Gaming Hut to riff an alien species that feeds via photosynthesis. / Ken gets you started on your collection of books about maps in a bibliographic Cartography Hut. / It’s been a while since Ask Ken and Robin had a lightning round, so let’s have a lightning round. / Then the Eliptony Hut blows up real good with a look at the Martian nuclear armageddon theory.

Ken mentioned Mercator but not a specific book, so here's Mercator: the Man Who Mapped the Planet.
