Episode Two – Mexico Is Missing An Island

…in which we take enormous liberties with Geography, History, and International Politics, along with discussing ideas as broad and varied as wandering great-souled islands exploring the world, folk heroes gathering from across time, Emperor Norton’s vision-quests, and punching the giant Ugly Fish.

As part of the ongoing evolution of The Big Red Couch, we tried something different this time and actually researched our ideas, which meant the vibe was a little different this time, and some ideas were similar.

We’ve had some great feedback on our first episode which we are incorporating into future episodes, including suggestions for handling audio differently!  Of course, given that we’re very organised for once and have an extensive buffer organised ahead of time, you won’t see the impact of the feedback for a while.  Even so, we’re Very Excited About It.
