Footnotes added to Podcast version of show:

In Traveller, just like in reality, space is big. Really big. Really, really big. To get an idea, go to https://travellermap.com/

Classic Traveller is “hard sci-fi” of the 70s and early 80s. Computers were huge and home computers weren’t a widespread thing, no internet, etc. For example: Some ship schematics have large area for computers.

Lack of faster than light communications led to a more feudal / regional governmental system throughout the empire

Weapons run the range from rocks to firearms to lasers. Daggers and knives are still very common because you don’t want to use lasers or bullets on a ship

Ships usually carried a lot of sand. If enemy ships appeared, they could drop sand that would act as chaff / defense against lasers

No hit points, damage is deducted from attributes

Similar attributes to D&D, however instead of Wisdom and Charisma there was Education and

Social Standing. Those could be codified, where the other two are more subjective

No experience, no levels… advancement is through wealth, status, etc.

Skills CAN be changed during adventuring by going back college or joining the military, etc. Or the Imperium goes to war and veterans get called back to service.

Certain attributes can be changed during play… for example you marry into nobility

They chose six siders because people already had them at home and would not need to buy polyhedrals

Traveller appealed to David when he was younger because it cost less than the D&D books

Nik’s recommendations for new anime watchers:
Mob Psycho 100
Great Teacher Onizuka


Brent's recommendations for new anime watchers:
That Time I Got Reincarnated Into A Slime
Made in the Abyss - Brent’s reasoning (did not make it into broadcast or Krypton Radio version of show due to time constraints): It’s genre breaking, very focused on story and the the opposite kind of show than Dragon Ball to demonstrate the storytelling range in anime. Very cool visuals. Not recommended for kids.

Is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse just a fun movie or a cultural attack jam packed with social conditioning and ideological dog whistles? Listen to a spirited discussion (in truth, more of a debate without formal rebuttals) between Shane and comics artist / bunny-lover-in-chief Timothy Lim as we each present our opposed perspectives. Includes some fun general movie discussion at the end. Recorded during the December 21, 2018 Dave Elswick Show on 101.1 FM The Answer in Little Rock.

Special thanks to Dave for the opportunity to podcast a portion of his show.
