ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Fascists and Feculence! Johnny and GSV begin the long awaited beginning to the culture series, as The Culture ramps up for its fight against the hated Idiran Empire! But neither the empire nor their cultured foes are the focus of this tale, as we start on contemporary religious references and move immediately on to a seemingly inconsequential pair of doomed agents fleeing dangerous situations in service of their respective home group-civilizations!

The Eye of Argon

Orbs of sight, reader's delight! GSV and Johnny, aided by special guests Jace Dickey and Zeek Aran, read through the entire damnable text of the ancient work of ill-advisedly published fantasy fiction, The Eye of Argon! Strap in for 3 hours of audiobook and 1 hour of complaining and giggling, both of them nonconsecutively.

Here's the PDF version we were reading from: [ https://ansible.uk/misc/eyeargon.pdf ] (and here's a backup text transcr ipt, because that's really hard to read: https://ansible.uk/misc/eyeargon.html )

TvTropes' Best guess for what The Eye Of Argon is made out of: [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beryl#Red_beryl ]
