For the second week of Gobbledy-Book Club 2015, Paul and AJ are joined by longtime friend (but first-time guest) Hallie Prime to discuss chapters 7-12 of The Martian by Andy Weir. As stranded astronaut Mark Watney becomes more and more desperate for human contact, Weir begins to tap into the emotional weight of his premise. The gang debates how effective this is…and continues to have issues with a little thing called “dialogue.” Plus, AJ prepares to Better Call Saul, while the gang straps on their gravity boots for the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending.
Next: Wanna Cook? author Ensley F. Guffey stops by to talk chapters 13-19 of The Martian.
