Episode 66 - Contra Alliance: Shadows of the Past (Book One) by Tom Kolega *Patron’s Choice*

82 minutes

Our Patron Jensina chose this book as their once-per-year reward! Check out our Patreon here to get this and other rewards for yourself.

In addition to our usual barnyard language, Content Warnings this week include: generalized violence, guns, military stuff, murder, and some brief jokes with sexual themes.

Chris and Paris become Blind Date and Merlot to fight a terrible book from another galaxy! This one made us feel like we were reading a knock-off G.I. Joe novel at a foreign airport bookstore. Our ultimate judgment is that this should've been pitched to The Asylum rather than being published in book form.

We've also got some falafel talk, unsettling questions about eagles, and we announce potential options for the next book.
