Gobbledygeek episode 218, “The Martian: Part 4 – Live Another Sol (feat. Kenn Edwards, Hallie Prime, and Ensley F. Guffey),” is available for listening or download right here, and on iTunes here.

Mars: it ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids, and it ain’t the kind of place where Mark Watney wants to die. We track our astronaut’s final attempts to leave the Red Planet in the last six chapters of The Martian by Andy Weir, as Paul and AJ are joined by all of this year’s Gobbledy-Book Club readers: So Let’s Get to the Point host and Smoke Gets in Your Ears: A Mad Men Podcast co-host Kenn Edwards, Wanna Cook? co-author Ensley F. Guffey, and the Internet’s own Hallie Prime. The verdict on the book is perhaps a touch contentious, but that just makes the whole thing more fun, right? Plus, the gang discusses Mars One’s very real proposal to send folks to Mars for life.

Next: AJ and Paul have been tasked with an interesting Geek Challenge by Mr. Edwards. Paul must challenege AJ to a movie that’s not from the ’80s, while AJ must challenge Paul to a movie from the ’80s that’s also not foreign or black-and-white. After much head-scratching, Paul must endure Dead Ringers and AJ will subject himself to Logan’s Run.
