Episode 82 - Airplane!
This week Ben is joined by Andrew from Partly Robot Industries for an appropriately timely conversation about a vehicular method for domestic and international travel… with OR without the exclamation point! Andrew’s going to Italy (and on a side quest or two), so Ben wants to assist in his mental preparation and support him in any way he can. What’s the best way to prepare for the perils of air travel… is the answer watch airplane themed movies? Who’s to say? The hosts discuss the movies they watched to get themselves in the flight headspace, so to speak: Snakes on a Plane, Airplane II: the Sequel, Soul Plane, Mad Max Beyond Thuderdome, and Zero Hour! In the video games section, Ben and Andrew talk about River Raid, After Burner, 1942, Microsoft’s Flight Simulator franchise, and Airplane Mode. To close the show the hosts each share an air travel story from their past.
