The Adventure Zone: Graduation Ep. 37: Investment Opportunities

The Thundermen race to stop the machinations of the gods.  But first, they have to make it past an army of demons and settle some unfinished business. Luckily, they have help. A lot of help. A paradox is solved. A wrong is righted. A resignation is accepted. It is the beginning of the end.

Reply All: #172 The Test Kitchen, Chapter 1

In the summer of 2020, Bon Appétit faced an online reckoning. It imploded, seemingly overnight, former employees calling it a racist and toxic workplace. But the story of what actually happened there started ten years earlier. This is Chapter One, "Original Sin," of our series The Test Kitchen. This is chapter one of a four part series reported and presented by Sruthi Pinnamaneni. [more inside]

Friends at the Table: PARTIZAN FINALE- 45-47: Operation Shackled Sun

It is the year 1424 of the Perfect Millennium. It is now. The question is not simply "Can Millennium Break win?" It is "What does victory look like?" Will they be seen as revolutionary heroes or jealous upstarts? Compromised cynics or naive insurgents? Can they break free from the gravity of the old logics in a way so confident, so stunning, that they inspire people everywhere to see the world differently, to not only raise arms, but lock them in solidarity, too?

Friends at the Table: PARTIZAN 42-44: Unbreakable Quarry, Tunnels Beneath, Prison at the Top

Buried deep in the records of the Divine Past is a peculiar absence. What is buried beneath the northern pole of Partizan? "The Chasmata Quarry," says the only public record, "specializes in rare mineral extraction." Eight words. But other quarries on Partizan all have more. You could write a book about the excavations spread across the Columnar's Memoria Teardrop, or those digs spread hive-like through the Apostolosian Barranca, or the industrial pockmarks across the long Orion flats of the Low Slate. So why, why were there only eight words about the Chasmata Quarry? [more inside]

Friends at the Table: PARTIZAN 39-41: Escape Velocity, Engine Burn, Orbital Decay

In a hanger on a beach on the Isles of Logos, Kal'Mera Broun, Jesset City, Ver'Million Blue, Thisbe, Eiden Teak, Avar, Ryrira, and Si'Dra Balos stand around a spaceship. In just over a week, if all goes to plan, they will be inside of it and it will be outside of the Partizan system.  First, though, they'll need to secure a launch platform, get past security checkpoints on and off world, and ensure the safety of not only themselves but the materials they'll need to actually build something wherever they end up. If, that is, they decide they want to build anything together at all... This week on PARTIZAN: Escape Velocity [more inside]
