Episode 348: What A Gay Love Story (Review feat. O Human Star)

Olympic ring fails to openWith Sochi being an out-and-out debacle of an ultimate sporting competition, it’s up to us to pick up the slack back here at home. To do this, Jason (yes, that Jason) has been readin’ Sithrah, Rock and Tin, and From Nothing, and Steve checked out Vibe. Jason also tricked Steve into reviewing a gay love story that masquerades as a sci-fi robot adventure. O Human Star by Blue Delliquanti is the real deal in both respects, so be sure you don’t miss out!
