The show notes are also just regular ass notes! There's 80 pages of notes on this book, including some stuff that wasn't covered in the show.
I recently went on Champagne Sharks to talk about Attack on Titan with T. You may remember him from Isekai July 4: Rise of the Shield Hero.

We will be back next week with the last Seeing Like a State episode.
Ryan, Abdul (The Off Court Pod) and una (Goth Angel Sinners) get together to watch and discuss a very obscure Japanese movie about an aging matagi hunter, his family, and his encounters with a man-eating bear.
I've made the movie available for download via my google drive, we'll see how long it lasts. If the link stops working, you can DM me or get it for cheap at Samurai Video.
